But there is ano bad thing about it, my tape has finished exactly in that point of movie when mr. Poirot wanted to tell us who the murder was:| So I beg anyone of you to tell me how that crime was solved. Thanks and I wait your answers very ...very.

Janka,

Rather that giving the ending here, go back to earlier posts in this section where the ending is discussed. I'm not being mean, but we don't want to give away the ending to people who don't want to know it till they read the book or see the ending of the movie.

I liked reading muder on the orient express. It was such a good book that I read it twice. That Mr Poirot sure knows how to solve a murder. He is good.

Poirot is my favorite and this happened to be the best book i read that he was in. he is just so funny and i saw this on tv it was pretty good it made me picture poirot better.

There's not much more that can be said about this book that hasn't already been said... It a wonderfully crafted mystery, with colourful characters set in a perfectly constrained setting, and with a denouement as daring and (almost) as controversial as Roger Ackroyd. Mrs Christie has written many classics, but it would be hard to leave this out of any top ten list.

Its funny, but I understand that when it first came out, the reviews were not good. It seems some critics felt the solution was not fair. We know better now! I agree it's one of the very best.

That doesn't surprise me. As impressed as I was with the book and its plot, I remember feeling a little cheated on the denouement. It was only a fleeting moment and was quickly overturned by how impressed I felt, but it was there! The more I reflect now though, the stronger that initial impression with the books brilliance grows.

My Italian isn't great, but I think Ilaria says that she/he likes MotOE too.
