Summary of Asesinato en el Orient Express Jan 27, 2005
Asesinato en el Orient Express is a very interesting book. The story begins on a train. The train is traveling for three day around Europe. The train is traveling during winter, so during the beginning the train suffers a little accident on the way. The train gets caught in snow. No one can get out of there so they have to stay there until they get rescued. During the night someone killed Mr. Ratchett, he was in cabin number two. During the morning detective Poirot was announced that Mr. Ratchett was killed while he was sleeping. Poirot searched in the cabin and found out that someone killed Mr. Ratchett with a dagger. He knew that since they were trapped, the killer was still around them. There were only three suspects. Mr. Masterman, Mrs. Ohlson, Princess Dragomiroff, and the manager. They were the only ones that were at the scene during night. Poirot found three clues. He found a dagger, a royal napkin, and some burned paper. He starts asking questions to his four suspects. I recommend this book to the people who love sunspence stories. When I first read this book, Poirot was always keeping me guessing who the culprit is. The one who killed Mr. Ratchett is the one you least suspect. You really have to read this book.
Uno de los mejores de Agatha Christie Jul 29, 2000
Me he leído casi todos los libros que ha escrito Agatha Christie. Con el tiempo, he aprendido a predecir quién sería el asesino en casi todos sus libros. Sin embargo, este libro me ha sorprendido totalmente. Nuestro héroe, Hércules Poirot, está magnífico en este libro. Con su toque de soberbia y superioridad, nos demuestra también su lado humano. El desarrollo del argumento es magistral, con la sensación de claustrofobia, en un tren parado en el medio de la nada, aprisionado por la nieve. Ocurre un asesinato ya previsible. Pero, de ahí, adivinar el asesino... Es totalmente imprevisible. Las caracterizaciones de los personajes son maravillosas, como es característico en la dama del crimen.
