The plot follows an old nursery rhyme/poem in a sinister yet almost comical way. After every big plot point I was physically flinging my book down and throwing my hands in the air. Because I did guess the conclusion the ending was a bit disappointing but it's no big deal, as I said, I have Agatha's life's work to explore
“And Then There Were None” is a medium-fast paced book that has a high level of suspense. Although the book starts out slow with the author describing all the characters, the story line picks up rapidly when all the characters meet. There are two main descriptions of this book:
a. The author does an excellent job of using descriptive words to really allow the reader to paint a mental picture while reading the book.
b. The book also has many small character personality details that can be hard to pick up on, however it adds to the suspense of the book as a result.
a. Throughout the book, the author really makes the reader think about who might be the murderer. The people that are on the island are clearly being murdered and there are only the ten guests on the island.
b. The guests suggest that the murderer must be one of them, but there is no evidence to convict any one person.
“And Then There Were None” is a great book for readers who are detail oriented and have the ability to pick up on small hints and personality traits that the author presents, however it is still a good book for all readers.
Some people may accuse Christie of being a very simplistic writer, and they may be right. But here Christie shows off her talents, getting inside the heads of every suspect without making it clear who is the killer or proving someone isn't the killer. This is by no means an easy task. And packed on top of that is a sinister atmosphere and thrilling plot. This may very well be Christie's best work, and I would recommend it to everyone.
