Goodread's Summary: "What more can a mystery addict desire than a much-loathed murder victim found aboard the luxurious Orient Express with multiple stab wounds, thirteen likely suspects, an incomparably brilliant detective in Hercule Poirot, and the most ingenious crime ever conceived?"
IMDB's Summary: "When a murder occurs on the train he's travelling on, celebrated detective Hercule Poirot is recruited to solve the case."
My Summary: "A bunch of people stuck on a train with a dead body. A good ol' who-dun-it?"
I finished the book yesterday afternoon & watched the movie right afterwards so the book was fresh on my mind.
I saw the movie preview while attending one of the Harry Potter films on a Wizarding Wednesday & just knew that I needed to see the movie but only after reading the book. I remember reading And Then There Were None when I was a Freshman in high school & really enjoyed it so I figured that I would enjoy this book just as much & I did. I thought it was well written & although it was written in 1934, it was still enjoyable nowadays.
The movie was just as good. There were only three things that I noticed different from the book but nothing that would turn me off from the movie. I was just so excited to get to the end of the movie to see how they brought out the killer. So good. I also thought the casting was very well done especially "my dad" aka Johnny Depp. My mom likes him so whenever I see him, I call him "Dad". Ha!
