    Description

    "The murderer is with us - on the train now..."

    Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Edward Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. One of his fellow passengers must be the murderer.

    Isolated by the storm, detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer among a dozen of the dead man's enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again....

    Just Great!

    This classic novel by Agatha Christie is truly magnified by narrator Dan Stevens’ outstanding performance. There are no bells and whistles, just him rendering a striking array of voices and accents.

    Uncharacteristically and very interestingly, Hercule Poirot’s intellectual process is quite detailed, with frequent explicit syntheses that allow the listener to further his own.

    Some may wish however that there were more detailed descriptions of the cities and landscapes crossed as well as of the train itself.

    Still, this offering is wonderful entertainment.

    Masterful Performance!

    Would you listen to Murder on the Orient Express again? Why?

    I will definitely listen again. This was already my second visit to the story in the past year, I am a Christy and Poirot fan through and through. This particular story is a favorite, and this version was wonderfully narrated.

    What other book might you compare Murder on the Orient Express to and why?

    The nearest I could get might have to be another Christy novel, starring Poirot, which I recently read: The Mystery of the Blue Train. Similar not just because of the author and in the train as crime scene, but that they are also two of the Poirot mysteries which lack Captain Hastings and are 3rd person narratives.

    What about Dan Stevens’s performance did you like?

    He was fantastic across the board I thought. I may have been predisposed to like him, having been one of his Downton Abbey fans, primarily I do love his voice. But I am constantly dissapointed by narrators I like when they fail to adopt an appropriate voice for the opposite gender, or are imprecise or inconsistent in voicing multiple characters. And if ever there were a test of skills, it is this book - since it is mostly conversation and interviews with characters who range the whole spectrum: male and female, and all classes and several different nationalities. He managed them wonderfully, slipping effortlessly and precisely from one to the other consistently, and there are no fewer than 16 characters. I am beyond impressed, and he has found in me a devoted listener to whatever book he elects to lend his soothing voice to in the future. I have already bought the other Christy novel narrated by him which is currently available on Audible, and I hope there will be many more to come.

    My first Christie

    What a great book to start with from such an accomplished writer. Really fun read and one that goes down quick. As much as I love mysteries and thrillers and I had never attempted a Christie book. But at the recommendation of my grandfather and with the new movie coming out I figured why not and it did not disappoint. The performance was also really from the audible side of things. I will be diving into more soon.

    Dan Stevens is PHENOMENAL

    WOW!!! I've been on an AC/MOTOE binge lately with the 1973 film (best one ever) and the disappointing 2017/18 version with Johnny Depp as Ratchet. I was a little skeptical of Dan thinking he wouldn't be able to sound as good as David Suchet's portrayal on screen but WOWZER!!! I think Dan IS the David Suchet of Audible Poirot!!! His talent for multiple characters each having their own unique voice without bleeding from his true voice or another character is other worldly. If there was an Oscar for Audible narrative it should go to Dan!

    The impossible cannot have happened.

    "The impossible cannot have happened, therefore the impossible must be possible in spite of appearances.”
    ― Agatha Christie, Murder on the Orient Express

    I wanted to read this because the movie* was coming out and I had never read the book and didn't want this classic to be defined in my brain by the movie. It was OK. I had to keep telling myself that some of the conventions and tropes she used, she probably INVENTED, so there is that. I also enjoyed how she subverted the whole form of the locked-room mystery form. She blew it to hell (about as much as I can say without giving the ending away to whoever on this planet doesn't know how it ends). But the prose was mediocre and the characters floated between bland/conventional and cut-outs. Again, it wasn't bad, just not a genre I spend a lot of time with. If I'm reading detective novels, it is a different type entirely.

    * The movie was also good without being exceptional.

    Now I know why it's a famous book!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Murder on the Orient Express to be better than the print version?

    Probably. Dan Stevens does give each of the characters a distinctive voice, and there are a lot of characters to keep straight. He's really pretty good at this.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I quite liked the Princess Dragomiroff, an ugly old aristocratic woman with a deep, toady voice and a dry sense of humor.

    Which character – as performed by Dan Stevens – was your favorite?

    I quite liked the Princess Dragomiroff, an ugly old aristocratic woman with a deep, toady voice and a dry sense of humor.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I recommend listening to it in just a couple of sittings, yes. Partly that's because it's a potboiler, but also it's because the murder investigation is pretty complex, and it will make the most sense if you've got it all in your head at once.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a brilliant story. It almost has the cleverness and brevity you would expect from a short story, but it's long enough that there's a lot to it. It's hard to get started because there are so many characters you feel obliged to keep straight, and you don't know at first what's important and what isn't. But if you can push through the first hour or so, the rest of it is relaxing and rewarding. I'll remember this one.

    Brilliant

    The voice performance pulled me in and I could not stop listening. I would recommend this classic to anyone.

    Love it love it love it

    I love it when Dan Stevens narrates anything, but to have him narrate such a childhood favorite, and so impeccably well is just a treat. I love it whenever Stevens does an accent, and he gets to run the gamut here. Such an entertaining and easy listen! Highly recommended.

    Narration falls short

    I have always loved this story but have never listened to an audio version. This was not the great narration I had hoped for. Stevens did very well with some voices, gratefully Poirot was one of them, matching my mind's eye vision of the vain but brilliant little Belgian. But some other characters fell annoyingly short - Mrs. Hubbard and Princess Dragomiroff were actually cringeworthy. The Princess spoke so low and gruff she was nearly unintelligible and Mrs Hubbard was an absurd cartoon. Still, the story is strong enough to bear up under these shortcomings. Even if you already know the outcome, the process of getting there remains entertaining and ultimately satisfying in its conclusion. But I'd recommend looking for a better reading.

    Great Story! Great Narration!

    If you could sum up Murder on the Orient Express in three words, what would they be?

    Agatha is amazing!

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I kept trying to guess "who did it". Every time I thought I knew, I was wrong but I was right!!!

    What does Dan Stevens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dan Stevens brought each character to life. Each person had their own nuances and idiosyncrasies. Amazing voice actor!!!!

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    What happens when there is a murder but no murderer?

    Wundervoll gelesen!

    Man erkennt jeden einzelnen Charackter am Wechsel des Akzents oder Stimmlage. Besser kann man dieses Buch kaum noch vorlesen.
