Book is good but not Agatha Christie's best
on 25 December 2017
I read the book recently after someone had commented that this is the best book of Agatha Christie. But to be honest this book fell short of expectations. For these kind of stories where people are brought to a distant place and people die one by one, the way people die should also be intriguing. In this book the way people die is just too simple. Also everything works according to plan of killer . Surely no one can guess who is the killer and in these type of stories it is impossible to guess the killer. Even in the end when the killer reveals himself ,it is not completely satisfactory explanation.
I would suggest everyone to read "Murder on Orient Express". That is so much better than this book. Also has best and most satisfying ending possible. Also her other Hercule Poirot books are wort reading
