4.0 out of 5 stars Agatha Christie – The Mystery of the Blue Train | Review
The Queen of Crime is back with another classic tale of murder and intrigue, in which the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot investigates the murder of a millionaire’s daughter and the theft of her valuable diamonds. It’s a similar story-line to most of Christie’s other work, but there are a couple of things to make this particular novel stand out...

1.0 out of 5 stars Agatha Christie can do far better
The Mystery of the Blue Train is one of Christie's longer Poirot books. I thought that I was in for a riveting mystery full of revelations, twists and turns but I was seriously dissappointed.
Christie's book is a dull, sleep-inducing piece of work. The mystery itself is uninterested as are the suspects and other characters. Even Poirot does nothing but have chats...

4.0 out of 5 stars Blue train, 8 Nov. 2012
Another Poirot classic. Well drawn characters, with, as usual, enough suspense to keep you turning the e-pages into the night.

Ive read a few Agatha Christie's now, and I struggled to get into this one.I didnt really connect with the characters, and as has been said here, it was too long. There are alot better Christie books out there. Don't let it put you off, It hasnt put me off!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent book, 21 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
Agatha Christie's books are all brilliant. This is another example of her wonderful writing skills. A guard tries to get Ruth Kettering to get leave the train but he later finds she has been brutally murdered, he then discovers that her priceless rubies are missing, who has committed this terrible crime? Agatha Christie keeps you in suspence right until the last few pages, you won't be able to put it down (I certainly couldn't!)

David Suchet is my favorite reader of the Poirot books, but Hugh Fraser comes in an extremely close second!!! The mystery itself is good, as usual with Agatha Christie. All in all, well worth the read or listen!
