Another great Agatha Christie mystery!

What happens whne the guests at guesthouse start dying one by one? ( )
  cubsfan3410 | Sep 1, 2018 |
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, with an unknown host. 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 less impact. Here, readers become more involved with, and get to know, the characters. It matters when they die, which provides greater impact for the final resolution.

An excellent mystery and strong evidence for Christie's nickname "Queen of Crime." ( )

It is the most baffling mystery that Agatha Christie has ever written, and if any other writer has ever surpassed it for sheer puzzlement the name escapes our memory. We are referring, of course, to mysteries that have logical explanations, as this one has. It is a tall story, to be sure, but it could have happened.
 
The mystery is foolproof. The solution is fair. It all fits together at the end.

Disambiguation notice
This is a novel, and as such should NOT be combined with the play of the same title, nor with any of the various film adaptations.
Note that LibraryThing's "canonical title" is intended for the most common title, not the original or "accurate" one. Although the novel was originally titled Ten Little Niggers, far more have read it as And Then There Were None. Please also distinguish Agatha Christie's Work from Sherman Alexie's anthology, Ten Little Indians: Stories (2003). Thank you.
