And Then There Were None...
And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie

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 get a who dun it when 10 people who are brought to a island are picked off one by one. All seems tied to a poem that takes on dark connotations. As you continue through the story, you will keep changing your mind about who did what and who the bad guy is. If you somehow manage to guess it, I applaud you. When I first read this book years ago I remember being astounded by the ending. But even though I love this book, I can now say that the ending is a bit of a letdown. I think it would have been better to leave things unexplained. You could have another "The Turn of the Screw" and wonder if everyone involved is truly mad or just one person. 

 

What I like the most about this story is that Christie slowly reveals things bit by bit about these 10 people brought to Soldier Island and you can definitely see that there is good and evil in anyone. And it leaves me with a question of if a person does a bad thing once, does that leave them evil forevermore? No chance for redemption? 

 

As I sat drinking my tea last night I had further thoughts about this book and just really enjoyed revisiting this again.

I have not started this yet.

 

Just wanted to show you the book that I picked after Sorry kids, no feet

selected this square for me after my last roll.

 

 

Pretty excited. I love this book and have the paperback edition of this one at home in the guest room. Yep, I leave my guests books to read at their pleasure when they stay in my home. 

 

Since I landed on BL for the second time I get to multiple my money to $9.00 since the book is 247 pages.

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie

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.

 

The premise is that ten people are invited to Soldier Island, accused of being murderers, and then they start dropping like flies. Suspicions and accusations fly around and yet people keep dying. It was interesting and entertaining but I still found it a bit farfetched, especially that last murder.

 

It probably didn’t help that I was reading it with a residual headache.
