Book of the Week: Death on the Nile.

Although I’m trying to remember if I’ve read Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile. I should have: when I was in my teens and twenties, I devoured all the Hercule Poirot stories I could find. Doyle, Christie, Sayers, Queen, Garrett, Westlake… I was what is in retrospect a somewhat enthusiastic fan of whodunits. ‘Course, I read a lot.

The DEATH ON THE NILE trailer.

Oddly, I’ve never seen Branagh’s MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS.

I say ‘oddly’ because I read a lot of Agatha Christie as a teenager (incidentally, I recommend a perusal of Randall Garrett’s The Napoli Express). I don’t know why. Possibly because the reviews were kind of meh? – But they made a sequel, so there’s that. Maybe I should pick up the first one and watch it. …Or, more accurately, add it to the pile. Anyway: this does look good. Maybe I will catch DEATH ON THE NILE, after all.
