AMAZING! This book deserves my 5 stars. I never even suspected the murderer. This book is one of the only books I've read that is a masterpiece. Go Agatha Christie!

Such a great book, I remember when I first got it, I thought it would be boring. Turned out to be the complete opposite!

There may be some typical archetypes but this novel was full of suspense and thrill. It does not disappoint and is now one of my favourites!

Love this book: the plot, the suspense, the ending were all great. It is almost like a rollercoaster; all the twists and turns on who the murderer is, but in the end it is always someone unexpected.

Agatha Chrisite's "And Then There Were None" is a page-turner, straightforward and full of detail. As the story goes on, you can use the poem to try to figure out what will happen next yourself, but in this mystery, things never really are what they seem to be. Fantastically written, Agatha Christie keeps you hanging on every word. My only advice: don't read it late at night.

Then there were none also known as Ten little Indians is one of the few novels of the great British mystery writer Agatha Christie that has neither Miss Maple nor Poirot. She does of course keep her famous trope of putting a small group of people somewhere where they cannot leave, and then take this trope that many a cozy mystery writes perhaps one of her darkest novels. There is no protagonist/detective she gives us to cheer for, everyone is a suspected and ever one is guilty of the crime of murder in one way or another. It reminds me for some reason of the movie Clue, but in the hands of the master storyteller Agatha Christie there is no comedy, just the claustrophobic fear that comes with ten people one island and one of them a killer. It is in this tale and it's ending that Christie reminds way she was the best in the business.

This book reminded me of the movie "Devil" that came out a few years ago about the group that is stuck in the elevator and start dying one by one. There was no element of possession in this book though.

Really good mystery. I couldn't put it down. It creeped me out too and I had trouble going to sleep while I was reading it. Highly recommended

Anyone that enjoys mystery or thrillers "And then there were none", which used to be called "Ten Little Indians" 10 people are summoned to the mysterious Indian Island by U. N. Owen. Then, they are slowly murdered, keeping their deaths in theme with the titular nursery rhyme. The group on the island slowly realizes that one of them is the murderer, and that they must find out who it is before he kills them all. The book has a lot of suspense, and the ending is impossible to predict. A very good, suspenseful murder mystery.

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.
