how do i give this book 1000 stars because it is honest to god the best book i've ever read and agatha christie is my favourite author now. she's just. an absolute genius. and this book is the epitome of mindfuckery. now i understand why this is her most popular work. i don't even have words. i read this the way i read every agatha christie book: suspicions changing every 3 seconds all the while waiting to see how wrong i was. and boy was i wrong. i've never been this wrong.
it was quite morbid in my opinion but for some reason i didn't really mind, and it was also beautiful in a really twisted way. she just has this unique way of writing that i haven't encountered before, it's what makes me love her books so much. and also the emotions she manages to make me feel?? which really shouldn't be a thing because this is mystery. but still it made me emotional. and then it left me speechless.
now my only question is: is every mystery book like this or is this just her? and also do people ever correctly guess the ending. is that a thing. i mean there must be hints in the book?? i think?? but i just can't imagine how smart you have to be in order to guess it.
in conclusion, this is my favourite book and i don't think anything will ever top this. and i would urge everyone to read agatha christie like. right now. ( )

Agatha Christie's 'And Then There Were None' follows 10 strangers to a mysterious island off the coast of England where they are each murdered one by one for crimes of their past. Based on the old folk song/poem Ten Little Indians, each of the 10 guests are murdered following a line from the poem. 'And Then There Were None' is unlike any mystery novel I've ever read because it constantly keeps you on your feet and wondering "who is the murderer?" and "who is going to go next?". Christie's detailed narration followed by her suspenseful plot leaves her reader jumping at every turn. In addition to including the term red herring in a line of the poem ("four little Indian boys going out to sea, a red herring swallowed one and then there were three") Christie fools the audience from the very start of the novel by introducing the characters Mr. and Mrs. Owens. It isn't not until Vera Claythorn and Phillip Lombard are the only two left on the island that they realize the Owens were made up from the start. Right when the reader thinks they know what's happing, Christie spins the entire story around. With diverse characters and frequent plot twists, Christie always keeps the reader guessing on their feet. I found the book exiting and dramatic; it is a perfect book for younger readers looking for thrill that will keep their attention. ( )

Who Did It?
A thriller that happens in an island. A series of murders without any clue about the murderer. The narrative is engaging and the reader get hooked in order to discover the assassin. Once one starts to read this book, there is no turning point. A delightful reading! ( )

Good classic read. I enjoyed it and kept me guessing the end. Definitely didn't see that coming. This was the first Christie book I've read. Will definitely have to check out more. ( )

Purely amazing, it was always my favourite Christie novel and the first I will recommend. ( )

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.
