Murder on the Orient Express EXPLAINED in Five Minutes.

  • Murder on the Links is a strong but slightly flawed sophomore effort by Agatha Christie. Unlike the Mysterious Affair at Stykes, Murder on the Links provides a hint of the exotic locations that Agatha Christie later perfected in Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile. The characters are further developed than her first book but the mystery is maybe a little too developed.

    Most of Christie's mysteries hinge on multiple events happening at the same time as the murder to ensure everyone is a suspect and has something to hide. In Murder on the Link - the event that forces suspects into falsehoods is borne after a coincidence and lacks the deliberation that Poirot is so fond of.

    The plot itself is well done - the characters' motivations are reasonable even if some of the characterizations are incredible dated by modern standards. There are some twists and turns that forces some life in Poirot's inscrutable facade -- to the betterment of the narrative. The one item that seems a little out of place is the legacy of Sherlock Holmes. Poirot pairing up with Capt. Hastings is a little too close to Holmes and Watson. More egregious is the presence of a French detective that is a parody of the manner and investigative techniques that Holmes made famous. I expected better.

    Ultimately, Christie had a high bar to clear in Poirot's second outing. She clears it despite a few stumbles. The combination of exotic locations, devious murders, and a detectives insistence that man is a creature of habit that are present in Christie's best works shows are present but still in their infancy in Murder on the Green. Recommended.

  • I guess I'm getting frustrated with Agatha Christie and her "Miss Marple" series. "The Moving Finger" is the third in that series. I have no idea why. "Why what," you ask? Well, why it's called a "Miss Marple Mystery," I answer. There is no reference to Miss Marple until the end of Chapter 9 (about 69% of the way through the book -- and note that the book ends where my Kindle says 93% complete since there's the usual filler at the end). She makes her first appearance in the next chapter where she says a handful of sentences of no special import and then disappears until about 80% through where she makes a couple of more pronouncements. Then, she's done (except for her recounting what really happened at the end). But, wait, there's more. Not only is there no Marple here, the book isn't even written in same style or tone as the previous two books: it's written from the perspective of an outsider, has no common characters, and is in a different village (town). About the only thing in common with the previous books (specifically, "The Murder at the Vicarage") is that reading it feels like nothing more than living through the petty backbiting and gossiping of a small town. If the writing hadn't been technically decent (though I cringed at the "character" of the protagonist), I'd have rated it lower. But, even though I'm not happy with the Marpleness of the book, I guess I'll be charitable and rate it at an OK 3 stars out of 5.

    The novels featuring Miss Marple are:

    1. The Murder at the Vicarage (Miss Marple Mysteries)
    2. The Body in the Library (Miss Marple Mysteries)
    3. The Moving Finger: A Miss Marple Mystery (Miss Marple Mysteries)
    4. A Murder Is Announced: A Miss Marple Mystery (Miss Marple Mysteries)
    5. They Do It With Mirrors: A Miss Marple Mystery (Miss Marple Mysteries)
    6. A Pocket Full of Rye: A Miss Marple Mystery (Miss Marple Mysteries)
    7. 4:50 from Paddington (Miss Marple Mysteries)
    8. The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side (Miss Marple Mysteries)
    9. A Caribbean Mystery (Miss Marple Mysteries)
    10. At Bertram's Hotel (Miss Marple Mysteries)
    11. Nemesis: A Miss Marple Mystery (Miss Marple Mysteries)
    12. Sleeping Murder (Miss Marple Mysteries)

  • The plot is pretty basic and straight forward. There's no real originality among the characters. It's an incredibly boring book and does not do well to maintain your interest. Also, Where the heck is Miss Marple? She doesn't appear until you are nearly 3/4 done with the book and even then she's disappears for many pages and only reappears to solve things real quick and explain things to the reader. Such a disappointment of a book, This is the last Miss Marple book I'm gonna read.

  • This was done like a play with background sounds such as door slamming, etc. I enjoyed the story which was a mystery. Hercule Poirot has been employed by a Frenchman who believes he is in great danger and emplores Poirot to come to France and take his case. Poirot proceeds to France but it seems his employer was killed the night before. Poirot, nonetheless, stays to solve the crime and does. Very good story and not overly long.

  • I'm going to try to give a take here from the point of view of a person that has read and watched many murder mysteries but just started reading Agatha Christie. The biggest takeaway I can give is that her twists are extremely cliche', BUT they are cliche' because she is the person that created many of the twists originally, and they have been rehashed so many times over the years. I figured out Murder on the Orient Express about halfway through for that reason. I figured out Crooked House about two-thirds of the way through for this reason. Same thing with this book. The twists are easy to spot because we have been inundated with them so many times throughout our culture, but I can respect Agatha Christie for creating them in the first place! As for this book, it is solid and well-written. The characters are exceptionally fleshed out. I'm sure that when it was first published, it was mind-blowing! Today, it's very cliche'.
