2017 book 86

Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express
My Christie kick continues with one of her most famous works--one that I feel like I /must/ have read before, but remembered absolutely nothing about, so was experiencing it fairly fresh. I admit that Robin Stevens' homage gave me some good clues, though not enough to figure out that ending! What a plotter Christie was. And this book is way funnier than I was expecting, too. It does lean on some really broad ethnic stereotyping, but primarily toward Western Europeans, so I didn't find it too offensive. Definitely a classic for a reason.
