Book Review | And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie


And Then There Were None is Agatha Christie's best selling mystery novel.

Book Description

"Ten . . ."
Ten strangers are lured to an isolated island mansion off the Devon coast by a mysterious "U.N. Owen."

"Nine . . ."
At dinner a recorded message accuses each of them in turn of having a guilty secret, and by the end of the night one of the guests is dead.

"Eight . . ."
Stranded by a violent storm, and haunted by a nursery rhyme counting down one by one . . . one by one they begin to die.

"Seven . . ."
Who among them is the killer and will any of them survive?

There is a reason And Then There Were None is the #1 mystery novel of all time. It is bloody brilliant.

I had so much fun reading this book. Have you seen the movie Clue? I now know it's a blatant rip off of And Then There Were None, but I love that movie. If you love that movie, too, you really need to read And Then There Were None.


Basically ten folks are brought to an island and each one is picked off one by one. Who is the murderer? You won't know until the end, and you'll be thrown for a loop a time or two.


I can't think of a mystery I would recommend more than And Then There Were None. It was pure entertainment and expertly done.

10/10: Awesome

I wish all reading weeks could be like last week! Everything I picked up was fantastic: Earthly Things by Julian Vaughn, The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells, and And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie.


Now I'm reading John Hornor Jacobs's The Incorruptibles. The cover is gorgeous. It reminds me of the illustrations in The House in the Night which appropriately won the 2009 Caldecott Medal.


Today is the first day of school here so it's an exciting day! I hope everyone has an excellent day, and an excellent reading week. Be sure to let me know what you are reading in the comments or leave me a link!

My blog is back! My google account was hacked and in the fall out, google locked my blog down. If you saw the message claiming I was a criminal, they may have overreacted a bit. :)

Are you reading anything awesome this week?

I just finished up Lee Thompson's new crime novel A Beautiful Madness. If you love mysteries/suspense, you should check it out.


I'm currently reading Earthly Things by Julian Vaughn (Lee Thompson), and it's so good.


This is the last week of summer before school starts in our area. This means my reading mojo should be making a come back as well.

I hope your week is awesome. Be sure to let me know what you are reading this week in the comments or leave me a link!
