Description

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stopped the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train was surprisingly full for the time of the year. But by the morning there was one passenger fewer. An American lay dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside.

Critiques

"Need it be said, the little grey cells solve once more the seemingly insoluble. Mrs Christie makes an improbable tale very real, and keeps her readers enthralled and guessing to the end." ( Times Literary Supplement)

The only real Poirot David Suchet

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

Yes, because of Suchet. He is the real deal as Hercule Poirot. I have one other audio version of this book, but it does not compare to this one.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder on the Orient Express?

At the end when Poirot Show`s everyone why he is Poirot.

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

Everything! I first listened to a Hercule Poirot mystery red by David Suchet about one year ago, when I listened to Death on the Nile. I was smiling the whole time listening to the book. Suchet is a great actor, you can really hear it. He brings every character to life in a great way, not just Poirot.

David Suchet.. The one and only Poirot

Brilliant writing by the greatest mystery writer of all time, narrated by the best... David Suchet. This man is a genius. He makes all the characters come to life and hearing the voice of the one and only Poirot is just brilliant!!

Perhaps knowing the story made me biased

It's really hard to know if I would have liked the book more (and given it 5 stars all around) had I not known the end (I've seen an old movie version and the latest one). It is not identical to the movie, but close enough. I think it moved a bit slow, but it is a good mystery. The performance is superb. There are a number of versions and I selected this one by listening to the sample of each. I was most pleased with my choice. Suchet did a great job of different voices and accents, including the female voices.

Accents somehow annoying but turned out touching

The story was twisted and obscured, suddenly solved at the very end without much scrutiny action.

Suchet reading Poirot - a perfect partnership.

David Suchet is practically synonymous with Agatha Christie's Poirot, so it's simply wonderful that this audiobook is read by Suchet. His characterisations are perfect, subtle and entertaining, which make these audiobooks great listening. This tale of murder and mystery is enthralling listening, so settle in - you're in for a real treat.

Absorbing for the late night listen.

What did you love best about Murder on the Orient Express?

The character of the dectivie

What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder on the Orient Express?

The first meeting with the other travellers

Have you listened to any of David Suchet’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Very favourable

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

Although I did not - I wanted to glisten in one settings. I fell asleep- late in the night and had to rewind the final sections.

Any additional comments?

Just keep the books coming.

David Suchet is marvellous

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

This audio book is one that I could listen to again and again mainly because of Suchet's amazing performance as Poirot and an assortment of characters from different nationalities. It's a blast and I get the impression that Suchet had a jolly time doing it.

Have you listened to any of David Suchet’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Suchet is really at the top of his game here. I've also enjoyed The Mysterious Affair at Styles, which I've listened to multiple times.

Any additional comments?

The Murder on the Orient Express isn't one of Christie's more believable puzzles but Christie was a superb storyteller and with Suchet in the driver's seat here, the ride is worth every penny.

Brilliant story, brilliantly spoken

One of the most fun books I've heard in a while. The story is interesting in its entirety - at no point did I feel like "get on with this conversation" or "this is repetitive". All the characters, and there are quite a few witnesses to keep track of, have interesting backstory that gets explored during the course of the book. This combined with the brilliant narration - mood, accents, humor are all conveyed very well - really makes for an audiobook that was through-and-through fun to listen to. David Suchet even manages to narrate the few pieces of French language littered throughout the book, making for a smooth listening experience. I never felt the voices he gave the different people were out-of-character in any form.

I don't know if I will listen to this book again. A big part of the story is that you build your own image of the crime and attempt to piece together the clues yourself which of course isn't half as fun when you already know the answer. On the other hand, just the little bits of humor that appear in the entire book fairly consistently and the great character building might have me coming back to listen to a few scenes again. Especially the different kinds of prejudices the detective and his two "companions" during the investigation really make me grin sometimes.

As you can see, I'm gushing. I just listened to the last two hours of the book in one go because I could not wait for the answer to the puzzle, and the ending is absolutely brilliant, one of the best I've ever read (or, well, heard). This book is amazing, I love it, and the beautiful narration is the cherry on top. I wish I could listen to it again for the first time.
