Mini-Review: The Mystery of the Blue Train (Hercule Poirot #6) by Agatha Christie

1086321

The Mystery of the Blue Train is a good story that is very “Christie”.  It’s full of intrigue and suspense with a lot of movement among the main players.  Because the murder takes place on a train it feels natural to compare this book to the more famous Murder on the Orient Express.  Frankly, there is no comparison – MOTOE is a vastly superior novel.

My biggest disappointment is that I figured out the majority of the big reveal around the 50% mark.  It seemed obvious to me and I would be surprised if most readers didn’t feel the same.

Enjoyable but not special or memorable.

3/5 stars.
