Agatha Christie is a true legend! She has written 85 books in her lifetime and has sold between 2 billion to 4 billion copies of her books. She is said to be the second most famous author after William Shakespeare. 

Murder on the Orient express is the first Agatha Christie book I read, and I felt bad that I hadn't read any of her books (or any book for that matter) during my childhood days. What a waste of precious time!

If you haven't already read this book, read it! There is nothing to not love in this book, it's simple, it's intriguing, it's engaging. You will not know who the murderer is till the end of the book, that I assure you!
