Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Murder on the Orient Express
by Agatha Christie
(Kindle Edition)

Just after midnight, a snowstorm stops the Orient Express dead in its tracks in the middle of Yugoslavia. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for this time of year. But by morning there is one passenger less. A 'respectable American gentleman' lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Hercule Poirot is also aboard, having arrived in the nick of time to claim a second-class compartment and the most astounding case of his illustrious career.

I had high expectations for this one and was disappointed. I’m sure this book was fabulous when it was originally written, but for me it was very slow and I found it tough to maintain interest in the characters and the story. It was very tedious to read through an endless recitation of interviewing everyone on the train, then searching everyone's luggage, then interviewing everyone again and again. The plot was simple, but it got confusing with all the different characters that were involved and at times it was difficult to keep everything straight. Murder on the Orient Express is considered a classic, by a successful author, I was expecting more from it.
