finished listening 05/12/17 Murder on the Orient Express is the first Agatha Christie novel I have read. I really enjoyed it. Personally, I found the audiobook/play enhanced my reading: I could hear the varying accents, the train chugging along and doors closing, altogether incredibly immersive. I imagined that if I had not had the amazing […]Read more "Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christe"
