Asesinato en el Orient Express = Murder on the Orient Express
Asesinato en el Orient Express = Murder on the Orient Express | Agatha Christie
En un lugar aislado de la antigua Yugoslavia, en plena madrugada, una fuerte tormenta de nieve obstaculiza la linea ferrea por donde circula el Orient Express. Procedente de la exotica Estambul, en el viaja el detective Hercules Poirot, que repentinamente se topa con uno de los casos mas desconcertantes de su carrera: en el compartimiento vecino ha sido asesinado Samuel E. Ratchett mientras dormia, pese a que ningun indicio trasluce un movil concreto. Poirot aprovechara la situacion para indagar entre los ocupantes del vagon, que a todas luces deberian ser los unicos posibles autores del crimen. Una victima, doce sospechosos y una mente privilegiada en busca de la verdad: Agatha Christie construye con esta novela una intrigante historia de suspense que desencadena en una resolucion magistral. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION This is the story of one thrillingly exotic journey, one brutally stabbed victim, and seventeen suspicious suspects. Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is full, but by the morning there is one less passenger. A man lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the insideMany obstacles are put in Poirot s path to try and keep him off the scent but in a dramatic finale he succeeds in coming up with two solutions to the crime."

2. My favorite way to prepare eggs is in the microwave. My mom taught me how to do it. I crack open 2 or 3 eggs in a cereal bowl, stir them up with a fork, heat them up for 1 minute, take them out and stir them up again. After that, I cut them up so they‘re scrambled, heat them up again for a minute and take them out. After that, I season them with salt and pepper or hot sauce.

Thanks for the tag, @Eggs 🤗

1. Tagged: MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS by Agatha Christie
2. I am still trying to slog my way through WAR AND PEACE; I've been reading it since January. Does anyone have a translation that they'd recommend? Mine's just not cutting it.
3. My proudest achievement (not having kids) is teaching and surviving freshmen for 25+ years without losing my cool--too much. 😃

Cuilin War and Peace - Pevear and Volonkhonsky translation I really enjoyed. 12mo

I‘ve seen the different movies a lot of times and knew what to expect but still the book is always better. Since I have a daily commute of 1.5 hours now, I spent less time reading but more time listening. I like the Agatha Christie‘s story because you never know the culprit (because Poirot always has extra information).

Had to finish before bed! A gem from the Queen of “whodunnit”. Quick and easy to read, with short chapters. Clues perfectly layered throughout the novel to keep you guessing with a final plot twist to complete the puzzle. Great way to start 2023‘s year of reading!

Glad I never saw any movie before reading this, so the ending was not spoiled in the least. Definitely one of Christie's best; she is incredible with the locked room novel, though in this case, of course, it's a train. A classic whodunit with the required detective tropes. One thing though: lots of prejudice here between men/women, rich/poor, royalty/everyman, even against nationalities. Perhaps typical for the time and where it was written.

repost for @Mitch:

I‘m recently rediscovered my love of crime fiction - and I‘m unearthing some golden age gems! Thinking of setting up a monthly Litsy bookclub. Super simple and low key - we read a book each month and then at the end of the month I post 3 or 4 prompts to get us talking about the book. Anyone interested?????
Let me know below if you‘d like to join in and if there‘s enough interest I‘ll get us started with our January book asap!

I listened to this one on Libro.fm for a book club and Kenneth Branagh does a great job with all of the different accents. I recommend this version and I don't think it's available on Audible. It starts out slow, but it picks up and the ending is phenomenal.

I‘m deeply ashamed to admit I‘d not read this one before, but what a delight now that I‘ve finally caught up with the masses.

Fun, fast, and about a crime that you don‘t really mind happened since the “victim” was a monster.

Plus, I finally get why Hercule Poirot is so beloved.

Looking forward to watching at least one of the adaptations this weekend — open to recommendations as to which one is best!

MommyWantsToReadHerBook Haha, shame on you! 😜 Welcome to the club! 2y
Dragon I have to go with the Kevin Branagh adaptation ( even though he‘s not my favourite Poirot) . The cinematography and the costumes- so well done 2y

I‘m not going to recap the plot because this is a classic and even those who haven‘t read it are at least somewhat aware of/familiar with it. I‘ll just say that I read this book many years ago and I still remember every plot point and every twist and turn because it‘s literally that memorable. Agatha Christie remains the queen of mystery decades after her death. A brilliant, classic, memorable, expertly crafted novel!

This was the first detective I read in a while that didn't make it obvious who did it. I appreciated that! I also liked the locked-room aspect, which was the main reason I chose this. However, the characters weren't very versatile, and everyone was written down as a stereotype of themself. It stil needs to get points for the plot, though. And in its time it probably was a different experience to read.

1️⃣ Sometimes! I like it when the author allows the reader to catch glimpses of the twist, but not when it comes out of the blue.

2️⃣This was my first Christie. I read it on vacation with my husband before we got married. We took a train trip so it was a perfect reading experience!

3️⃣Christie‘s stories delve deep into the psychotic side of human nature. Sayers writes better prose but Christie is damn dark.

What do you do when there have been so many adaptations of one of your favourite murder mysteries that nothing seems like the real tale anymore?

My answer was to go back to the book and reconnect with Agatha Christie's own creation.

What a fun book! I‘m surprised again at how easy and quick Agatha Christie‘s books are. I saw the movie, so going into the book I knew who killed Ratchett, and that made it fun seeing all the little clues along the way. But I do kind of wish I had read the book before the movie, because twists in books are always fun.
