Agatha Christie was already famous when AND THEN THERE WERE NONE (also known under the title TEN LITTLE INDIANS) was published--but this book put her career well over the top: nothing like it had seen before, it proved a sensation, and writers and film-makers continue to use Christie's basic idea to this very day. Some critics argue the novel is mechanical rather than organic, but I say if this is mechanical, let's have more of it! It is truly a can't-put-it-down, non-stop read, a spectacular turn by the genre's single most celebrated author.
The success of the novel inspired Christie to adapt it for the stage, where it was a tremendous success, and there have been several film versions (most notably the 1940s Rene Clair-directed AND THEN THERE WERE NONE) over the years. If you know the story only from stage and film versions, however, you are in for a surprise. Christie felt the novel's conclusion did not translate well to the stage, so she re-wrote it--and most film versions follow the stage script, not the novel. But whether you've seen the play and films or not, get ready for a shock!
GFT, Amazon Reviewer
It disgusts me that the pinheads who demand 'political correctness' have tampered with this classic. Yes, I know that the original was even more politically incorrect and was changed by the author. This was not sanctioned by the author, but by clowns. I bought this book expecting Ten Little Indians. To have altered the content of the book without authorization from the author is like defacing Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" because you don't want to see a naked woman. And don't put a diaper on Michelangelo's "David" and tell me it's for my own good.
The product information for this book is misleading. The book was altered to satisfy those who try to force political correctness on others, past, present, and future. I don't want their PC crap. I want the original book. The product information should label the book as being altered, and explain how. Then the purchaser can decide which version they want. That would be the honest way to present this version and others.
The original version, with Ten Little Indians, is a five star book. Clever, well-written, and with a very satisfying ending. My copy is dog-eared from re-reading it every year or two. Even knowing the ending, I marvel at the workmanship of Dame Agatha. I recommend seeking out the version you want, and reading it. I recommend to Amazon that they make it easier for the purchaser to determine which version they are considering. And, yes, it matters.
