Murder on the Orient Express: B1
Author: Agatha Christie
This is an absolutely gripping murder mystery solved, yet again by the famous detective, Hercule Poirot. When the millionaire, Rachett, is found murdered in his train compartment, all the passengers of the Orient Express are guilty. Not one of them could have escaped because of the thick snow, which lead to only one conclusion: the murderer was on the train with them...

Having already read Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy, I could not wait to start this book and was captured by it until the very end. I had got it for Christmas because of all the wonderful reviews, and I was not disappointed one bit! I think that it helps to have read His Dark Materials because you would have a better sense of what was going on. There is adventure on every page as the two unlikely heroes escape from danger time and time again.

Malcom is now the main character, and, working in a pub, he hears all the latest news. So when word is spread about a child being transported to the care of the nuns (who live over the river) he immediately wants to go and see her. She is, of course, the famous Lyra who stars in Pullman's previous trilogy, and Malcom soon becomes very attached to her. All it took was a flood, and then Malcom and his fellow worker from the pub - Alice - found themselves sailing around in an unrecognisable world, being tracked by a crazy murderer and, the ultimate challenge, having to look after a baby! Will they survive, and if they do, what further perils will they face?

Because of certain words and scenes, I would recommend this book to children in secondary school, or INCREDIBLY mature Year Sixes. It was overall a thrilling, action-packed book and I cannot wait for the next one!
