And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie

I wanted to read this because I went to see a play based on the book a while ago and I was curious about the book itself. So, of course, although I knew what happened in the play, I couldn’t know exactly how things would play out in the book. This is one of Christie’s standalone mystery novels.

 

The premise is that ten people are invited to Soldier Island, accused of being murderers, and then they start dropping like flies. Suspicions and accusations fly around and yet people keep dying. It was interesting and entertaining but I still found it a bit farfetched, especially that last murder.

 

It probably didn’t help that I was reading it with a residual headache.
