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.
