And Then There Were None

And Then There Were None is a thrilling, sinister mystery written by Agatha Christie and published as Ten Little Indians in 1939. This chilling story reveals the depravity of the human mind as it unfolds its bloodstained pages; ten strangers, invited to a lonely island by an anonymous host, share their darkest secrets…then one by one, the guests begin to die.

No one is safe from the hand of vengeance.

I would recommend this book for ages 16+. It’s dark and menacing, with a mature theme and twisted morals. The writing is excellent and gripping, the characters sympathetic yet unlikable. Agatha Christie outdid herself in the writing and plotting of this tale, but there are little to no redeeming qualities about the story; it’s a twisted tale of sin catching up with the sinner. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

  1. I want to read this book but haven’t gotten around to. (Partly because I’m reading so many other classics at the moment), but the main plot I’m interested in and want to see how it turns out and who is the murderer.
