It's a good book, but I think it's a little overrated. ( )

A perennial work on stage and screen. The book is well known. Very elementary as far as mysteries are concerned, but then again, I may be spoiled by knowing it too well. ( )

This is the first book I've read by Agatha Christie. I've watched Poirot and Miss. Marple series, but have neglected to read any of her novels until now. And I'm glad I made the leap.

And Then There Were None is a thrilling story about ten strangers that are invited to a mysterious island by a mysterious host. There they are each incriminated for murder by the mysterious host. That very night a guest/victim dies. The strangers are freaked out and vow to leave the island in the morning. Only they can't. And more people keep dying.

This is a really fantastic novel. It will keep you guessing until the end. I enjoyed the way Christie laid out the story; the background she gave us of each character adding to the thrill. And of course it dabbles with the question of whether we should take justice into our own hands. If you've not had an opportunity to read this book, I recommend it. It's perfect for a rainy afternoon!

I believe the copy I own is "And Then There were None" and I bookcrossed "Ten Little Indians".

Justifiably one of Christie's best and about as scary and creepy as a murder mystery can get. I know there have been film adaptions with a less deadly ending but that is what really gives it the power.

I read this book my freshman year of high school. It was okay. ( )

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 most "accurate one." Although the novel was originally titled Ten Little Niggers, far more have read it as And Then There Were None. Thus, that is the appropriate canonical title.
