Pure genius. Without a spare word, Christie draws us into the drama unfolding on the island and we get to know each of the characters as they are picked off one by one. Could one of them be behind the murders? Why did I wait so long to read this mystery of mysteries?!

I read this book for the "A Book By Agatha Christie" part of my 2018 reading challenge. I enjoyed it and was definitely puzzled by the mystery, but it was lighter and shorter than I expected. I would have liked if it were a bit deeper and less fluffy.

Good, quick mystery read. A great "Who did it" mystery tale.

And Then There Were None is an amazing book which kept me reading and wondering about the mystery until the very end. The murderer turned out to be someone I haven't even suspected because they planned out the whole thing so precisely and covered them self well. This book is filled with clever, exciting, and mysterious things and the whole book and story is planned out so well by the author. I will never regret reading this book because I didn't even expect it to be so interesting when I started reading it. I think this book will be best suited for children and adults 12 and up.

In this book Agatha Christie combines both mystery and murder into one book. This book had such surprising turns on events, that my mouth stayed open the whole time. I usually don't like reading murder novels, but this one was so interesting, that no force was able to separate me from this book. If you are in grades 7-9 and you like poems, mysteries, and unexplained deaths, then this book is for you. Seriously, check this book out of the library and READ IT!!!!

Though this title is considered Agatha Christie's best, contemporary readers may find it a bit hum-drum. It's a good plot -- there just aren't any adrenaline moments with bombs going off, car chases, etc.

"And Then There Were None" begins when 10 rather unlikable characters, who each have their own questionable pasts, receive invitations to come vacation on an island retreat off of England's coast. Upon arrival, they soon start dying off and the hunt is on for the killer. Although it seems like someone is on the island with them, at first, it becomes apparent that the only one who could be a killer is one of them. The struggle to survive is tense and they are slowly picked off one-by-one.

This is the gold standard for locked-room mysteries. I couldn't wait to get back to it every time I set it down and even though I had read this years before, I still couldn't figure out whodunit--though looking at it after the fact, of course it makes perfect sense. I recommend this to anyone who is curious about Christie and just what makes her the Queen of the Mystery.

This is one of my favourite Agathe Christie novels. Her masterpiece tells of ten people who have all killed being stalked by a killer. The tone is dark and bleak throughout the story, and the Ten Little Soldiers nursery rhyme is chilling when used as an analogy to the deaths of each person. The twist is super shocking and the ending ends off on a depressing note. A must read for all Christie fans.

Often considered her masterpiece, Agatha Christie creates a suspenseful mystery novel with an extremely well-planned out plot that makes it a fun read. After eight guests arrive at an island, strange and eerie events occur. The guests begin to die one after another, but the cause of their deaths seems to follow a nursery rhyme placed in each of their rooms called "Ten Little Indians". They soon discover that there is no one else on the island except for them. The killer, who so cleverly avoids every attempt at discovery, can only be one of the guests themselves. This novel, which questions the logic of justice and its administration in the modern world, creates tense situations in every page and should definitely be read by anyone who enjoys reading mystery novels. 4.5/5

Imagine this.  You are one of 10 people on an abandoned island.  Somebody lured you here and left no means of leaving.  One by one people the island start dying.  Mysterious hints are left behind.  The murderer is probably with you on the island and could take your life at any time.  Read this hair-raising mystery by Agatha Christie.

"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."

10 little soldier boys went out to dine,
One choked his little self, and then there were nine.

Nine little sailor boys sat up very late,
One overslept himself and then there were eight.

Eight little sailor boys travelling in Devon,
One said he'd stayed there, and then there were seven.

Seven little sailor boys chopping up sticks,
One chopped himself in halves, and then there were six.

Six little sailor boys playing with a hive,
A little bee stung one, and then there were five.

Five little sailor boys going in for law,
One got a chancery, and then there were four.

Four little sailor boys going out to sea,
A red herring swallowed one, and then there were three.

Three little sailor boys going to the zoo,
A big bear hugged one, and then there were two.

Two little sailor boys sitting in the sun,
One got frizzled up, and then there was one.

One little sailor boy left all alone,
He went and hung himself,

And then there were none.
