    One thought on “Murder on the Orient Express: A BBC Radio 4 Full-Cast Dramatisation

    1. Audrey

      I listened to the dramatized version of this book and I must say it was very well done. The train is stranded in a snow storm and a murder has been committed. The detective interviews each of the passengers and comes to surprisingly and satisfying conclusion. I really enjoyed this story and will be looking for more by Agatha Christie.

      *Reviewed for The Libraries NI Book Blog*“What is wrong with my proposition?”“If you would forgive me for being personal… I do not like your face, Mr. Ratchett.”One murder, a train full of suspects, a few clues and a detective on board with a self-appointed mission to solve the mystery. Detective Hercule Poirot is one sassy man. I’ve read one of the other Poirot series and found it dull at times, but this BBC dramatization of Murder on the Orient Express was fantastic! A talented set [...]

      At the last minute, and through the intervention of the owner of the railroad, Poirot makes it onto the Orient Express. But a murder happens, the train is trapped in a snowdrift, and and he is asked to investigate. The snowdrift is significant because otherwise it would have crossed the Italian border some time in the early hours of the morning and most would assume the assassin had escaped. Trapped in the snowdrift, no one could have got off the train.***Given the most recent movie version, I t [...]

      I’m not usually a fan of full-cast dramatizations, but this one was good. I enjoy this story in its many forms, including this one.

    6. Zana

      I first read this in 8th grade as a class assignment. It was good then -- I've actually never found a better mystery story, though I don't go out of my way to look -- but being able to speak French makes the reading considerably smoother this time around.The problem with audiobooks is that is difficult to go back and check things, and the clues that are left to the reader are subtle. I completely missed MacQueen's motive for the crime (and upon reading , it is the weakest motive, and somewhat su [...]

      My umpteenth re-reading--but first listening experience--of one of my favorite mysteries of all time, and a classic from the grand dame of mystery. The Orient Express, a train heading out from Istanbul, is trapped by a snowstorm in the mountains of Yugoslavia. A man is killed--a man who, a few hours previously, had tried to hire Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, to find the person who was after him. Poirot had told him he wasn't interested but then is asked by the head of the railway company (wh [...]

      A little hard to get into at first because I was listening in the car and some of the ambient noise on the recording made it hard to follow a few of the characters. But once it got going, it was a wonderful mystery with a surprise ending!

    9. Janelle

      Didn't realise the audiobook I borrowed from the library was a full cast dramatisation. I'd prefer to listen to the original book. So if I can find a copy, I'll try this again another time.

    10. Cassie (Red Reading Hood)

      Agatha Christie is a bloody genius. I never ecpected that ending. It makes me want to see the movie even more now

    11. C.A.

      Despite being a fan, I had never actually read this one. I'm glad I did. It is intelligent, compelling, and one of her best. Without giving too much away, a man is killed on a train, the Orient Express of the title, and everyone in the car becomes a suspect. Knowing how it ended didn't lessen my enjoyment one bit. I also recommend the movie version staring Albert Finney and Lauren Bacall. In my opinion it is one of the only times a movie lives up to the book.

    12. Sarah

      This is a BBC dramatization of the book, not a strict reading. Overall, the performances were great, especially the actor voicing Poirot, who captured the detective's refined, extremely-capable-without-being-cocky personality perfectly. He also made great use of hilarious silent "reactions"--pauses--in response to another character's actions or speech.Apt sound effects set the stage and moved events along without being corny or overdone. I really enjoyed this.

    13. Jen

      When we go on a road trip out of town I try to get a book on CD for us to listen. We just finished this one today and it was really good. The murder mystery part was one of the best plots that I have ever read, but the thing that was amazing was the narrator, David Suchet. He was an amazing reader with all sorts of accents and male and female voices. you really could get lost in listening and forget that it is just 1 person doing the whole thing. Really fun to listen to!

    14. Bob

      Just finished listening to this. One of my favorite murder mysteries; I read it as a teen and it still holds up. This version was read by a narrator who was able to read all parts, changing voice for the women's roles and several men's roles, including several nationalities. Really enjoyable!

    15. Nic

      Wonderful full-cast dramatization, complete with train sound effects! (I like the plot, too. Especially the ending. Although - spoilers! - one hopes that the police won't waste too many resources looking for a suspect who doesn't exist.)
