↠´ First Class Murder Ó Download by Ò Robin Stevens Listen to this as an audio book, it was well read and kept me entertained as I was cleaning my house A great continuation of the series Hazel and Daisy are great characters and the murder was full of mystery I did guess who the murder was before the end, which I didn t with the other two books but it didn t stop my enjoyment Also I did enjoy hearing that Daisy had read Murder on the Orient Express Nice nod to Agatha Christie.
Another rippingly good read from Robin Stevens, probably my favourite of Daisy and Hazel s adventures so far I loved the Christie references and thought the mystery itself was brilliant.
From The Author Of Murder Most UnladylikeDaisy Wells And Hazel Wong Are Taking A Holiday On The World Famous Orient Express And It S Clear That Each Of Their Fellow First Class Passengers Has Something To Hide Even Intriguing There Is Rumour Of A Spy In Their MidstThen, During Dinner, There Is A Scream From Inside One Of The Cabins When The Door Is Broken Down, A Passenger Is Found Murdered, Her Stunning Ruby Necklace Gone But The Killer Has Vanished As If Into Thin AirDaisy And Hazel Are Faced With Their First Ever Locked Room Mystery And With Competition From Several Other Sleuths, Who Are Just As Determined To Crack The Case At last I solved the murder before Daisy and Hazel I now feel like a real detective and want my own badge And a bunbreak Bunbreaks on the Orient Express are in a class of their own, as are the murders an extra tricky locked room mystery with the added complication of a spy, a jewel thief and a bungling official investigator.
The characters are a joy as always, especially Daisy and Hazel Hazel has grown up a lot over the last two books and now she begins to realise it, leading to tension with Daisy, who can t quite allow Hazel to be an equal, and with Hazel s loving but over protective father.
Super fun Can t wait for the next installment.
At least the author admits in the Afterword that this is a rewrite of Murder on the Orient Express if she hadn t done that I wouldn t be surprised if Christie s descendants slapped her with a lawsuit, since all of Agatha s books are still under copyright by the Christie conglomerate But gosh I wish she could have come up with a better train mystery of her own After all, Greenwood managed it in Murder on the Ballarat Train Today s budding serial authors are a bit too lazy, and perhaps the younger ones don t realise that cut and paste and tweak is not originality.
A good enough lite read to pass the time on a stressful day, but we are back to the notes in Wong s handwriting which when you re reading on an ebook reader, strains the eyes a bit, even trying to enlarge the font That is saved by the ending, which I found much better than Christie s original Then we have you Der beste Fall bisher Super unterhaltsam und spannend weckt Erinnerungen an Agatha Christies Mord im Orientexpress Ein wundervolles Buch, das meine Erinnerungen an Agatha Chriesties Mord im Orientexpress immer wieder wach gerufen hat Die Geschichten hneln sich schon sehr und es gibt einige Parallelen, was mich aber gar nicht gest rt hat Das ganze wird ja aus der Sicht von der jungen Hazel erz hlt, die eine frische und u erst unterhaltsame Art hat, diesen besonderen Mordfall zu Papier zu bringen.
Denn die B cher sind ja sozusagen das Fall Buch der beiden Detektivinnen Hazel und Daisy, die sich im Deepdean Internat in England kennen gelernt haben W hrend Daisy die tapfere und neugierige Wortf hrerin ist, nimmt Hazel eher den zur ckhaltenden Part ein, doch man merkt, wie sie immer mehr ber sich hinaus w chst und Daisy mittlerweile das Wasser reichen kann.
Die Erwa Even better than the previous two Stevens is going from strength to strength and I hope she continues to subtly touch upon the themes and history which is so cleverly running beneath the main storyline Also, I wouldn t mind a little trip to the Pinkertons too
A perfect homage to Christie s Murder on the Orient Express The locked room mystery was solid, and I really loved how Hazel is growing as a character I can t wait for the next book in the series to be published in the States It s strange, sometimes, how books can make you long to read them and then freeze a little when you have them finally in your hands And this was one I love the work of Robin Stevens I have adored Murder Most Unladylike and Arsenic For Tea The third in the series, First Class Murder, was something that I was viciously hungry to read and yet, reluctant to do so I think that s something that sometimes happens when books are this good, this continual level of good and wonderful writing and plots which hit all of your sweet spots and just make everything right with the world You get scared that it can t last You get nervous There aren t many contemporary writers I feel like this about Susie Day is one as is Sita Brahmachari, and I suspect Aoife Walsh may become another Robin Stevens is very much up there on this
