About the book

 

1939. Europe teeters on the brink of war. Ten strangers are invited to Soldier Island, an isolated rock near the Devon coast. Cut off from the mainland, with their generous hosts Mr and Mrs U.N. Owen mysteriously absent, they are each accused of a terrible crime. When one of the party dies suddenly they realise they may be harbouring a murderer among their number.

The 10 strangers include a reckless playboy, a troubled Harley Street doctor, a formidable judge, an uncouth detective, an unscrupulous mercenary, a God-fearing spinster, two restless servants, a highly decorated general and an anxious secretary. One by one they are picked off. Who will survive? And who is the killer? Copies of an ominous nursery rhyme hang in each room, the murders mimicking the awful fates of its ‘Ten Little Soldier Boys’.

 

Review

 

10 people on a mysterious island entirely cut from the mainland. A nursery rhyme that leads to their deaths. Who killed all of them? And how?
.
Reading Christie for the first time, the book is the best work of hers I’ve read. Well, to be honest, this book is definitely the best creation of her. And what a gripping story it is! Full of humour, mystery and suspense, the book is a journey of ten different people experiencing death in front of them.
.
Excellent narration, tight storyline, and some mind-numbing methods of murder shown in the book are enough to instill fear in the minds of the reader. Yes, this book was so full of suspense, I was doubting every single character for the murders. I think the mastermind behind these horrendous murders was a psychopath!
.
Beautifully written, with suspense on every single page, this journey is full of some serious murders. ❤️

 

Verdict

 

My first experience with Christie was a memorable and mind-blowing. This book, for me, is arguably her best creation. Full of mystery, this book made me a fan of her writing style. Christie blends mystery into her characters with such elan, one tends to doubt every single character in her book. When I got to know the real killer, I was shocked to the core as I didn’t imagine this person being the character (I won’t tell you the name! Will tell you just a single thing – this person is important to the book). And yes, this book is full of some fun anecdotes as well.

Full of mystery, suspense and some fun, And Then There Were None shines brightly in the mystery book world and takes the reader to a journey of Classic England in 1939 where a nursery rhyme leads to the murder of ten people. 

I’ll definitely recommend this book to every bibliophile!  ❤️
