''And Then There Were None''- Book Review

Author: Agatha Christie
Published: 1939

Genres: Novel, Mystery, Horror, Crime, Suspense, Thriller

Rating: 5 out of 5


And Then There Were None...  ah, it was such an intense, baffling, scary mystery!!! It was so impressive and overwhelming! It was so very suspenseful and scary, and it is certainly the best among the Agatha Christie novels that I've read till now. It was SO intense, so powerful and psychologically intense! I LOVED it.

And Then There Were None kept me tensed and guessing. It was so intense, suspenseful. 

The plot is about an island, the Soldier Island. Eight people are invited to the Soldier Island.  The eight guests are: Justice Wargrave, Vera Claythorne, Anthony Marston, General MacArthur, Phillip Lombard, Mr Blore, Dr. Armstrong, and Miss Brent. After their arrival there, they find out that there are no other people in the island, except themselves and two servants, Mr and Mrs Rogers.  There are just these ten people in this island. Nobody else. The owner of the island is apparently a Mr. Owen, whom nobody (not even the servants) has ever seen. 

Atmosphere in the house, and the island, is somewhat odd, strange. All the guests find a paper in their room, where the nursery rhyme ''Ten Little Soldiers'' is written. Everybody is startled by the atmosphere of the house, but this turns into dread and fear when the guests start dying, one by one... And within a short time, all the guests come to guess that none of them will leave the island alive... and a constant fear arises: who will be the next victim? Along with many other questions. Who is the murderer? Is he one of them?...

''And Then There Were None'' builds up an excellent atmosphere, an atmosphere that is filled with scares, intensity, suspense. The psychological impact on the characters because of the events, is portrayed very well. Some of the characters, and the situations, have so much depth. The novel kept me guessing. And the solution was so excellent. 

I loved this one. ''And Then There Were None'' was extremely suspenseful, thrilling, and an absolute page turner.
