It is creepy; it is sinister; it is baffling. Full of plot twists and red herrings, it is a gripping page-turner where you are never sure who the killer is until the very last page. Finished it in three hours because I couldn't put it down. Having sold over 100 million copies, it is the best selling mystery novel of all time. And I loved it.

I never suspected the murderer! This book kept me full of suspense the entire time and I never wanted to put it down. I would recommend this book for anyone who even remotely enjoys murder mysteries.

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

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.

  • Tachikoma rated this: 5 stars out of 5.

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.

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.
