New Monthly 5 Book Review

"And then There Were None" by Agatha Christie

Morning everyone! Welcome to my latest review. 

Other than the 'Poirot' series of books (and TV series starring David Suchet), "And Then There Were None" is my favourite Agatha Christie novel. 

Did you know that this has also been released with the slightly non-PC title of "Ten Little Indians"?? Wikipedia states "Ten Little Indians is an American children's counting out rhyme. The term "Indians" in this sense is referring to Native Americans. In 1868, songwriter, Septimus Winner adapted it as a song for a minstrel show."

You can also find movie adaptations bith titled "Ten Little Indians" (released in 1966) and also "And Then There Were None" - my favourite version stars the Late Oliver Reed and the Late Sir Richard Attenborough. Not to mention the amazing tv miniseries for BBC1 starring Charles Dance.

You get the idea - it has been on TV a lot. Book wise, I love the suspense of it, 7 strangers are invited to an island to stay by an unseen host, where it becomes clear that said host seems to know a lot that appears to incriminate the guests for things that happened in the past. 

I can't describe too much more without spoiling the book for those who haven't read it yet, but the twist at the end is one you just don't see coming, no matter how many times you read it - I've read this so many times and I am still surprised by the end even though I really should remember it by now!

If you haven't already read this one, I urge to you to as soon as possible. You'll be hooked. I give "And Then There Were None" a 5 book score. I love it. 

Enjoy, and as always, Keep Reading! x
