Agatha christie murder on the orient express book summary
IIFYM & Flexible Dieting: The Easy Way to Burn Fat & Build Muscle Eating the Foods You Love—Includes Over 40 Macro-Friendly Recipes! by Thomas RohmerThe book wasnt what I expected it to be. It does tell you the basics about flexible dieting, and it does give you some recipes as well as a couple of workout routines. But, it is not what I was hoping. It is too basic and I guess the book targets beginners. I was hoping to read something new and learn more about flexible dieting. But... the book did not do me justice. I am not going to lie, I finished the book quickly BUT there was no new information for me to learn from. Good book for people who know nothing about the topic, but other than that I am a bit disappointed.
Book Review On Agatha Christie's "Murder On The Orient Express"
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie – review
I decided to read this book while I am waiting impatiently for the next Wells and Wong book to be published because I think that it will be set on the Orient Express. The story features Monsieur Hercule Poirot, a clever, logical, Belgian private detective with an elaborate, waxed moustache. It was written and is set in the s so some of the language and expressions are old fashioned and there are quite a lot of French phrases spoken by Poirot, so you might need a French dictionary to help you translate! At the start of the book Poirot is at a hotel in Turkey, after finishing a case, and is sitting down to dinner when he notices an American tourist who he observes has the eyes of an animal and an air of evil about him. The next day on the Orient Express, the same man requests that Poirot takes on his case as he says that his life is in danger. However, Poirot refuses despite the man named Ratchett offering him large amounts of money.
Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer — in case he or she decides to strike again. The impossible could not have happened, therefore the impossible must be possible in spite of appearances. It's an intricate mystery revolving around a group of characters cut off from the world where Poirot exhibits not only the power of his little grey cells but his concern and compassion for humanity.
Our protagonist and hero, as it were, is Hercule Poirot, a very talented detective and Belgian police officer who has already retired. We meet him as he is taking the Taurus Express which is going to travel to Stamboul now Istanbul. Poirot takes particular notice of two other people on the train. Mary Debenham and Colonel Arbuthnot act as if they are strangers, but Poirot can discern that they display behaviors which suggest that they are not. He becomes suspicious of them. After the train arrives in Stamboul, Poirot checks into the Tokatlian Hotel where he immediately receives a telegram asking him to return to London. In his brief time at the hotel, Poirot runs into an old friend, one M.
