Description

Hoping to make a clean break from a fractured marriage, Agatha Christie boards the Orient Express in disguise. But unlike her famous detective Hercule Poirot, she can't neatly unravel the mysteries she encounters on this fateful journey.

Agatha isn't the only passenger on board with secrets. Her cabinmate Katharine Keeling's first marriage ended in tragedy, propelling her toward a second relationship mired in deceit. Nancy Nelson - newly married but carrying another man's child - is desperate to conceal the pregnancy and teeters on the brink of utter despair. Each woman hides her past from the others, ferociously guarding her secrets. But as the train bound for the Middle East speeds down the track, the parallel courses of their lives shift to intersect - with lasting repercussions.

Filled with evocative imagery, suspense, and emotional complexity, The Woman on the Orient Express explores the bonds of sisterhood forged by shared pain and the power of secrets.

Very enjoyable "woman on transportation" book

After being thoroughly disgusted with Girl on a Train, and The Woman in Cabin 10 and their neurotic, alcoholic, unreliable narrators, I was delighted to find a book with a protagonist I could stand being in the company of. This is a fictionalized account of a period in Agatha Christie's life, and I found the story engrossing and entertaining. Some mystery, some suspense, some romance, some exotic locations, and a ride on the Orient Express adds up to some fun reading/listening.

Other than when she was attempting various foreign accents (thankfully, very brief), the narrator does a good job and is pleasant to listen to.

A great read

Most of the time I buy audio books because of the genera and rating without always reading the summary of what the book is about. Bring a Netflix binge watcher of Poirot, I was pleasantly surprised that this book was about Agatha Christie. It was beautifully written and had heartwarming story. It's one I will certainly listen to again.

Woke up anticipating listening

Not my usual genre but this novel excels in every aspect I delight in and expect in the best of novels.Intriguing plot, complex characters and natural, unforced dialogue.So captured me that I completed the novel in less than a day and a half; woke up excited about resuming listening.Narration is perfectly suited to characters and plot that is faultless and in large part what makes the novel so throughly captivating.

Good Walking Listen

The story was a little contrived, but good light listening. Narrator's voice was too windy and wispy.

Biographical fiction

I enjoyed this biographical fiction of Agatha Christie until the author decided to emphasize romance over characterization. The melodramatic finale kinda ruined the story. I really like this narrator, and she did a good job with this.

Don't listen, read it instead

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I didn't make it 10 minutes listening. The biggest annoyances were words ending in the letter P. In her reading they also ended in F. Stump became stumpf, stop became stopf, plump became plumpf, etc. Like her upper lip is extremely swollen. She also reads a bit hysterically, where it sounds like the female characters are always shaking and on the verge of tears. I've heard Justine Eyre before and barely made it through a different book for the same reasons. I thought I heard she was native to the UK so I thought some of those things would not be as prominent when not faking an American accent, but I was wrong. I'm not normally this harsh, but I can't say I will ever listen to another book read by Justine Eyre.

I just can't

I'm not very far through the book I'm probably around chapter 5 and it is so very dry. I just can't get into it thankfully it was a Kindle unlimited book so I did not have to pay for this title. unfortunately it's just not my cup of tea.

Doesn't really go anywhere

No great mystery solved here. A overall boring story with flat characters and a terrible performer. Her accents are terrible and her cadence is frustrating to listen to. I may have enjoyed the story more if I'd read it instead of listening to it, but it's still not a book I'd recommend to those who enjoy Christie or Conan Doyle.

Three Women and A Baby

The narrator does an excellent job of changing tones just enough to help distinguish character changes. The author used vivid descriptions to draw the listener in. It's a good read and has sold me on both author as well as narrator for future book selections.
