Book Review:
Murder on The Orient Express by Francois Riviére

Title: Murder on The Orient Express
Author: Agatha Christie, Francois Riviére (adapter), Solidor (illustrator)
Published: 2007 (original story published 1934)
Language: English
Pages: 44
Rating: 3/5

A graphic novel adaptation of one of Agatha Christie's most famous works. A snowstorm stops the Orient Express in its tracks, and during the night, a man has been stabbed twelve times.

Luckily, famous detective Hercule Poirot is there to investigate.

I was quite excited about reading this, as I am a huge fan of Poirot.

This feels rushed. It starts off really fast, and I think already knowing Poirot was a good thing, because there really isn't must introduction and you don't really get a feel for him. I felt like there should have been more in-between talk and situations, to add more to the story than just the mystery.

Even though it is almost too fast-paced, I very much liked the mystery and I love the artwork. I will definitely read more of these, because I love Poirot as a character and Agatha Christies storytelling.

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys mystery and Agatha Christie, but I would probably pick up one of the other graphic novels before this one, maybe one that is a bit longer. Or just read the actual book, it's very good!
