Several people, all strangers to one another, arrive at a small, isolated island. Some believe themselves to have been invited by an old acquaintance, while others thought they were being hired by someone named U.N. Owen. All of them discover, too late, that these were lies designed to lure them int...

There was something magical about an island – the mere word suggested fantasy. You lost touch with the world – an island was a world of its own. A world, perhaps, from which you might never return. Oh, Dame Agatha, you foreshadowing minx! This was a re-read (re-re-re-re-re-read, more like). I don...

I listened to this novel and I was surprised how fast it went. This is the first Agatha Christie novel that I have read in a long time and I was surprised how much I liked it. I thought it might be slow or wordy but this novel was non-stop action and there were times that I relistened to parts of it...

That was a fun ride! And I almost had it figured out. Well, not really. I mean, I was right in my guess for whodunnit, but couldn't figure out howdunnit. Anyway, it was perfectly plotted, wonderfully drawn characters, and Dan Stevens did a fantastic job bringing it to life with his reading. Au...

Is this the best Christie? I don't know. Some people will argue. But I can say that this, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, and Murder on the Orient Express are in my top favorite of Christie's works. "And Then There Were None" is a classic for a reason. Besides getting some locked room mysteries, you...

I wanted to read this because I went to see a play based on the book a while ago and I was curious about the book itself. So, of course, although I knew what happened in the play, I couldn’t know exactly how things would play out in the book. This is one of Christie’s standalone mystery novels. Th...

Continuing my November is vintage murder theme. This is one of the first mysteries I read. As a locked-room mystery, is it still great? Or have I passed my personal golden age of crime so long ago?

It is still great. Least probable book ever, but a rea...

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie To start, And Then There Were None is the first ever Agatha Christie book I've read. But it's not like I've never known about her--you'd have to literally live in a cave to not know about one of literature's best mystery authors. It just never crossed ...
