I read “And then there were none” by Agatha Christie last weekend, and there’s just one thing I’d like to say, “Mind blowing”.
I’m not exactly a big fan of Christie’s, and when a friend recommended me to read it, I was a bit sceptical. I didn’t find the first chapter too pleasing, but after that, I simply couldn’t put the book down. The plot is simply brilliant, and Agatha Christie keeps you guessing.
Ten people are mysteriously invited to a desolate island by a person they have never met before. There doesn’t seem to be anything common in them, or is there? The first night they are marooned on the island, there is a mysterious recording played. And then, they start dying, one by one. An island inhabited by no one else but the ten of them. And there is also that creepy poem about ten little soldier boys…..
The story is fast paced, and keeps you engrossed. The ending is brilliant, where the plot is revealed. This is surely a masterpiece, and it is one of the best selling books of all time. Definitely worth reading.
