Murder on the Orient Express: The Graphic Novel

We rated this book:


There’s been a murder aboard the famous Orient Express. A man stabbed in his sleep as snow fell at midnight. The murder could be any one of the passengers, it could be any one of the staff. And since the train is stuck in snow, the murderer has no way to escape. Enter Hercule Poirot, the famous Belgian detective, on his way home from his last case. The clues don’t make sense, they conflict with each other. Can Poirot figure out what happened before the train is free?

Told in a comic book style art, this graphic novel edition brings Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express to life and is a welcome addition to anyone’s collection of her books. It’s been awhile since I read the original, but it follows the story well, even though it does condense some. The art is fun, greatly exaggerating, Poirot’s famous mustache to a comical extreme. The rest of the characters are easy to tell apart and keep track of, not an easy feat when there’s more than a dozen to remember.
