And Then There Were None

And-Then-There-Were-None

“One little soldier boy left all alone; he went and hanged himself and then there were none.”

Book : And Then There Were None

Author : Agatha Christie

Rating : 5/5

Goodreads Synopsis :

First, there were ten – a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal – and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none. And only the dead are above suspicion.

Review :

This book is just perfect. Totally perfect. Even Agatha Christie herself said that writing this book was a great challenge for her and she was very happy and proud after writing it. The mystery is very gripping and always keeps you on the edge.

It is a roller coaster ride where you get to see different faces of human nature. There are unexpected twists and turn. Also the whole thing is very queer. The drama, the confusion and the deliberation between those 10 people is very exciting to read.

The book is fast paced and at no point you feel any sort of dullness in the story. There are some hints here and there about the real murderer but it is nearly impossible to grab those hints in the first read. And believe me you will have probably the best Eureka moment of your life when you will come to know the truth. This is a book you can’t miss to read.
