Interesting scenario. Good characterisation given the number of key roles in the story, with enough background on each one to understand why they accepted the rather odd invitations they received. I feel like I'm a fly on the wall at this strange house party. ( )

Really easy to go through this book. It is compelling and the ending is nice :) ( )

This was a quick and enjoyable read. Christie was creative in making it impossible to figure out in advance which of the ten was the murderer. The heartlessness of one particular character was the biggest surprise, and the figurine removal added to the tension. This could be enjoyable reading for both mystery fans and those who only occasionally read in this genre. ( )

Christie was a genius! How could she write so many unique murder-mysteries in one lifetime!

While I've seen and read modified and adapted version of the theme of 'And Then There Were None' in sub-plots of other stories, translations and movies, reading the original was an absolute thrilling experience. It's been long since I couldn't put a book down and finished it at a stretch. Thank you ma'am for leaving works behind that can intrigue a reader after more than half a century. ( )

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.

* AKA Ten Little Niggers / Ten Little Indians.

* (fin) Vuoden 2003 painos nimellä: Eikä yksikään pelastunut

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.
