“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. Without a shred of doubt, one of his fellow passengers is 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.

“What more . . . can a mystery addict desire?”—New York Times

IDK what to say.. There are too many suspects which at first were kinda confusing. Too many names to be remembered, too many evidences. As each suspect presented their alibis, my hypothesis also shifted. I guessed way too many suspects during the read LOL.

The way Poirot ended the case was rather amusing. He provided two solutions, in which one of them was actually meant to 'tease' the murderer, or I may say murderers. But then the very ending surprised me. In a good way.

To sum up, another masterpiece by Christie. A kinda long read, not really intense, but still enjoyable.

Loved it!

Hardman’s evidence was necessary in case some outsider should be suspected of the crime and be unable to prove an alibi.
“Quite ready now, Mr. Ratchett.”

The elder man grunted an assent and passed out.

“Eh bien,” said Poirot. “What do you think of those two?”

“They are Americans,” said M. Bouc.

“Assuredly they are Americans. I meant what did you think of their personalities?”

“The young man seemed quite agreeable.”

“And the other?”

“To tell you the truth, my friend, I did not care for him. He produced on me an unpleasant impression. And you?”

Hercule Poirot was a moment before replying.

“When he passed me in the restaurant,” he said at last, “I had a curious impression. It was as though a wild animal—an animal savage, but savage! you understand—had passed me by.”

“And yet he looked altogether of the most respectable.”

“Précisément! The body—the cage—is everything of the most respectable—but through the bars, the wild animal looks out.”

“You are fanciful, mon vieux,” said M. Bouc.
“If you will forgive me for being personal—I do not like your face, M.
