Review: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

 

Everyone is familiar with this story – it has been spoofed and references so many times in popular culture. I read this the first time in 2005 in high school. I loved it. So the other day when I was at the used bookstore by my house I found it and quickly read it again. I had forgotten the ending – such a treat to be wrapped up in the suspense and surprised again. Christie is a genius. She gives enough details to intrigue the reader and leaves out enough for the reader to guess what might happen next. The fact that it was set so long ago makes it interesting as well. Imagine if this was written today with all of technology – it just wouldn’t be the same. The book sets out with ten people on an island in a big house – no one sure why everyone is there. There are ten little figures that slowly start to disappear as people start to die.  The owner of the house is not there and everyone is a suspect until they are dead. You won’t be able to put it down – and you’ll love the ending. A classic that you should read, and will enjoy!
