    Started and finished in a day! Just as good as the first time I heard the story and, because I couldn’t remember who the murderer was, it kept me in suspense until the end. It was a fast and easy read. So glad I finally picked this one up!

    I had such high expectations after Murder on the Orient Express that I was looking forward to another unconventional whodunnit. Most other reviewers, and perhaps most of its 100 million readers, disagree. They enjoy it for the ingenuity of the plot, or the moral questions raised about how one can dispense justice. On the first point, as I could not connect with any of the characters, I lacked any interest in identifying the murderer. On the second point, the moral question arose in my mind as more of a brief afterthought than a deep analysis.

    What saves this novel, for me, is the surprise ending. The problem is I don't read novels solely for their endings.

    It's been seven years since I last read this and I somehow forgot who did this and it drove me nuts until I got to the end! It's a real windinger of a mystery that you have to be a genius to even begin to solve. Ten strangers are invited to Indian island under "murky" circumstances, they soon found out that their mysterious host Mr. U N Owen (unknown) hasn't bothered to show. Too late they realize that something is afoot and the guests begin to die off one at a time. Whose behind it? Is there someone else on the island? Is it one of them? The deaths get more and more outlandish and they all start to crack. Who would do such a thing? It's dark, deep, and one hell of a mystery. A classic that will never go out of style!

    Ten strangers have been invited by a mysterious host to stay for a visit in the host's luxurious house. This house resides on a private island. Once they all are settled in, they are confronted with the reason why they had been chosen for the occasion. The reason has each member in the house looking at each other with apprehension - and rightfully so. Unfortunately, their time together as a group is limited due to the one-by-one elimination of each house guest.I really enjoyed this! Throughout the entire book, the level of suspense was kept high by all the twists and turns. It made me eager to get back to it as soon as I could; I was definitely hooked. However, I have to say that the very ending wasn't as exciting as the rest of the book. For some reason, I expected to be wowed and I wasn't, but it was still a very good read and I'm glad I finally made time for it. (4.5/5)Originally posted on: Thoughts of Joy

    What a wonderful piece of writing! So simple, yet so complex a plot which kept me guessing and second guessing right to the end. A writer at the very top of her game. I just wonder why I waited so long to read this. Bravo Agatha!

    I really loved this book and would recommend this to almost anyone. There were a lot of twists and everything fits together so well even if you don't see it until the end. It's a book worth reading for a second time.

    This was the first novel by Christie that I read. And though it has been many years since I did, the story still sticks with me. A group of eight people is lured to an island, through an offer tailored specifically to him or her, invited to a remote island. There, they are all accused of having committed murder and escaping justice - and then they begin to die one by one. Who is the killer? Most well done mysteries have some kind of "twist" or misdirection to keep a reader from guessing the ending. Christie's other novel, Murder on the Orient Express, is probably more famous for doing so because of the film adaptations. However, this is her best selling novel - and for good reason. Orient Express is flashier, but the suspects are all very one dimensional and Poirot's deduction has left impact. Here, readers become more involved with the characters which provides more impact for the final resolution.An excellent mystery and strong evidence for Christie's nickname "Queen of Crime."

    And then there were none.Murder mystery where 10 people from a variety of backgrounds are lured to Soldier Island, south England and are killed one by one. Each has a secret in their past that makes them a victim for the murderer.I liked it but of course could not figure out who was the murderer.

    For me, this was not an enjoyable read. I often find books written in times I'm not familiar with to be slow going. This book was one of those. Still, the plot was intriguing and the final chapter on the solution to the crime was brilliant, so I had to give it a 4.

    Synopsis: Ten people are invited to an island and then killed one after another.Review: Good story, but slightly different from the movies!
  • (5/5)
    "One little Indian boy left all alone; He went and hanged himself and then there were none."Creepiest ending to a nursery rhyme ever? It's got my vote!Great book - great ending! 10 people are invited to Indian Island. Then they start dying. And no one knows who is doing the killing! The Epilogue sheds a little light. And then there's that note found in a bottle...A masterful who-done-it and a pleasure to read!

    It has been quite a while now that a book has grabbed me and I have finished it in a day. This was fantastic. I kept wanting more. I did not guess the ending at all. I was clueless. This was my first Agatha Christie book and I 💯 will be reading more. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I have my library co-worker to thank for putting this one in my hand!!

    great writing. Almost an equation. How can everyone on an island be murdered?

    Must be one of my favorite books of all time. I was reading it ( now don't do that it's not safe ) at red light stops I was so into it.

    She got me! This was very clever and I did not see the ending coming. Well done, Dame Christie. Well done.
  • (5/5)
    Another must read for a mystery fan. A great set up and execution of the mystery. The way the resolution is conveyed is a bit of a letdown, but the resolution itself is excellent.

    Klassieke verhaal van 10 verschillende mensen die naar Indian Island, voor de kust van Devon, worden geroepen en een voor een worden vermoord; onderhoudend en spannend, maar niet goed uitgewerkt.

    A quick intriguing read. Like all of Christie's, the plot's the thing. The characters are not deep, nor is there much real complexity to the plot. Not the author's best.
  • (5/5)
    I mean, it comes as no surprise that this book is great fun. I haven't read lots of Christie yet, but have a feeling this will always be my favourite. The story is well-crafted and has inspired so many other works -- a group of strangers stuck somewhere with no escape, being killed off one by one -- it still works just as well here as in current reimaginings. I watched the Lifetime movie of this recently, and see how how that film adjusted some plot elements to round out some characters and add nuance to others; this book doesn't delve as much into their characters as I'd expected, but that's not the point; the point is just the non-stop suspense and fun.

    MIND BLOWN!!! I am impressed with the work of Agatha Christie. For it being my first time reading her work I am very pleased. Every time I thought I knew who the killer was an unexpected event would occur throwing my suspicion out the window. In the end the culprit was the last person i suspected (as i hoped). So much for growing up watching Scooby-Doo Mysteries .
  • (5/5)
    how do i give this book 1000 stars because it is honest to god the best book i've ever read and agatha christie is my favourite author now. she's just. an absolute genius. and this book is the epitome of mindfuckery. now i understand why this is her most popular work. i don't even have words. i read this the way i read every agatha christie book: suspicions changing every 3 seconds all the while waiting to see how wrong i was. and boy was i wrong. i've never been this wrong.
    it was quite morbid in my opinion but for some reason i didn't really mind, and it was also beautiful in a really twisted way. she just has this unique way of writing that i haven't encountered before, it's what makes me love her books so much. and also the emotions she manages to make me feel?? which really shouldn't be a thing because this is mystery. but still it made me emotional. and then it left me speechless.
    now my only question is: is every mystery book like this or is this just her? and also do people ever correctly guess the ending. is that a thing. i mean there must be hints in the book?? i think?? but i just can't imagine how smart you have to be in order to guess it.
    in conclusion, this is my favourite book and i don't think anything will ever top this. and i would urge everyone to read agatha christie like. right now.

    Ten guests on a mysterious island are murdered, one by one. Who masterminded the deaths?This was another audiobook reread for me, though in this case my recollections of the solution were hazy. I enjoyed listening to it, though I was distracted by a feeling that I had read a different version -- and so I had. That got me researching this book's history, which is quite fascinating. The original title contained a racial slur, which was eventually changed to "Ten Little Indians" (the version I read originally) and then the internal references were changed to "Ten Little Soldier-Boys" (as it stands in the version I just listened to). The solution to the mystery is impressive, though I must admit I missed the presence of Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple.

    A classic for good reason.

    Clever and suspenseful. One of Agatha Christie's absolute classic mysteries, And Then There Were None is about a group of strangers on an island who die one by one. Who is causing their deaths? Why are they there? What dark secrets do they hide? We, the readers, find out in riveting moments. Not too long with great plot. Highly recommended.
  • (5/5)
    My first Agathe Christie book and it did not disappoint. It was fun to read an OG thriller! I really appreciated her use of the subtle and not so subtle red herring. A great read that you will finish very quickly and likely be surprised at least once or twice.

    Who Did It?A thriller that happens in an island. A series of murders without any clue about the murderer. The narrative is engaging and the reader get hooked in order to discover the assassin. Once one starts to read this book, there is no turning point. A delightful reading!

    More than forty years I've been reading, yet I'd never read an Agatha Christie mystery until just this month. "They're too innocent," I thought to myself (when I bothered to think about it at all). Too naive, I naively believed. What could a traditional mystery give to me that I couldn't get--and with more gristle, gore, sex, and rough language--from a thousand more contemporary sources?Originality of thought, for one thing. Purity of execution and elegance of style. Crystalline characters written with swift, spare strokes of the pen and plot devices that, although they have long since become hoary and cliched, because of Christie's mastery read as fresh as the day she invented them.Last year when I read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo I was blown away by what I perceived to be a modern twist on the traditional locked room mystery. It was set on an island, and during the commission of the crime there was no way on or off the island. Not only that, but none of the characters was particularly sympathetic and pretty much any of them could have done it. How embarrassed was I to discover that Agatha Christie did it in 1939 in And Then There Were None? And better.Sure, Raymond Chandler, offended to have been compared to her on at least one occasion decried her work as contrived, overly mannered, unrealistic. So? It's fun. It's well-written. It's clever. And, when you get right down to it, the dirty little truths of human nature as revealed by Dame Agatha are just as hard-hitting and incisive as those revealed by Chandler...and might even be a bit more shocking, when hidden deep within the psyche of a spinster school teacher, a judge, a doctor...
