This is an interesting book, perfectly suited for Alfred Hitchcock. I often stayed a step ahead of the action but the author's graphic similes and metaphors were so good that I really enjoyed reading it.
I gave the book 5 stars because, although, I had seen the movie version many times, I very much enjoyed the book. I was reading another book where it referred to author, Ethel Lina White and this particular book of the 1936. I plan on reading her other books and already started Some Must Watch of 1933 which was also a Hitchcock movie called The Spiral Staircase.
I loved Ethel Lina Whites writing, I could imagine myself in the little alps village, also felt the movement of the train and hypnotizing sounds of train travel. I easily recommend this to anyone who loves a mystery and loves being fully involved in an old classic novel.
The prose is well crafted. But the explanation of how the English people on the train were part of the deception is weakly and unsatisfactorily explained. The heroine, who starts out as an unlikeable spoiled brat, continues that way through most of the book and at the end I felt sorry for her new boyfriend.
I would like to see the Hitchcock movie, which I believe could be much better than the book.

Interesting from an historical perspective but now seems very much a cliché. Very obvious plot mechanisms and not much in the way of character development. Read morePublished 15 months ago by SF Reader
The fact that this book was selected by Hitchcock for movie attracted me to read White 's book. It was entertaining, held your interest and explored each character in detail.Published 19 months ago by Donna Marie
Really enjoyed the book. I really like the movie, The Lady Vanishes. They are both worth the read and the watch.Published on June 16, 2014 by spacey
Better than the movie, a fun read as it took me back in time. What better place for mystery than a trainPublished on December 5, 2013 by Willam Norman Reeves Jr.
An interesting book started a little slow but once the train started to roll the story really gained momentum. A great book that stands the test of time.Published on November 23, 2013 by Jon Bailey
I wished to read the story after watching the BBC production 'The Lady Vansihes' recently. The BBC production sticks more closely to the novel than the wonderfully amusing... Read morePublished on October 31, 2013 by M. J. Kane
