And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie What a delight to read this book again. Fortunately, I didn't remember the ending so it still came as a surprise.
 
Impossible not to think about Clue while reading this one because it's about 10 people that were invited to a mansion in a lonely Island with different excuses for the invitation. But once they get there, they realize that this is not a regular invitation, as their host is not there, but left a recording accusing them all of murder. Unable to leave the island, they start dying one by one. There's no one else on the island. One of them is the murdered. But who? 
 
Very fast-paced, this is one of my favorite Agatha Christie's books. It was entertaining, interesting and I did not see that end coming! :D Five Stars!

Must be one of my favorite books of all time. I was reading it ( now don't do that it's not safe ) at red light stops I was so into it. ( )

Fresh and entertaining as if written yesterday. Funny and exciting. ( )

A quick intriguing read. Like all of Christie's, the plot's the thing. The characters are not deep, nor is there much real complexity to the plot. Not the author's best. ( )

Good light read. I'm taking it easy today. ( )

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. Thus, that is the appropriate canonical title, if it requires a canonical title, which it appears not to. Don't add one just for the hell of it.
