|Murder on the Orient Express|
by Agatha Christie
genre · Mystery
language · English
time and place written · 1925–1933, England
date of first publication · 1974
"The narrator speaks in the third person, focusing on the thoughts and actions of Poirot. The narrator is fairly objective in her observations, but the text is peppered with juicy, subjective details of each character. All observations seem to be consistent with Poirot, what the narrator thinks is the same as Poirot. There is one instance that first person is used. In Chapter 3, Part three, there is a brief moment where the reader is privy to the comical thoughts of M.Bouc and Dr.Constantine.
The narrator is amused by the passengers aboard the Orient Express and seems to take pleasure in describing their predicament.
