May 13 2001
First there were ten--a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unkonwn to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they're unwilling to reveal--and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none. And only the dead are above suspicion.

Review

'Agatha Christie's masterpiece.' Spectator 'One of the very best, most genuinely bewildering Christies.' Observer 'The most astonishingly impudent, ingenious and altogether successful mystery story since The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.' Daily Herald 'One of the most ingenious thrillers in many a day.' Time Magazine 'There is no doubt that this is a highly ingenious jigsaw by a master of puzzling.' Books 'There is no cheating; the reader is just bamboozled in a straightforward way from first to last The most colossal achievement of a colossal career. The book must rank with Mrs Christie's previous best - on the top notch of detection.' New Statesman 'The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written.' New York Times --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll never guess who dunnit July 31 2013
By Rose TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I was a kid, I used to think Agatha Christie books were the most un-cool thing you could read....because my Dad read them. As such, I never picked one up until this past year. I started with her first, The Mysterious Affair At Styles, and I realized if this was her first book and it was that good, then they must keep getting better. She proved me right with this one. I thought it was fantastic and I couldn't guess who the killer was. She tells you in the end who, how and why....she would have to or people would still be pondering it to this day. The lady was a master and I look forward to the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good book July 20 2013
By Duchess TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is another good book of Agatha Christie's. I also think, that if you've seen the movie that is out for this book of hers, you won't be TOO disappointed (especially if you have not FIRST read the book).

The book was very well written, and also, that if you have only seen the movie of it that is out, and not read the book FIRST, I think that when you read it, you won't be TOO disappointed. I have to admit though, that the ending to this book has her "expected" type of endings and the book ending is not as "overdone" as what the movie makers do these days. If you prefer though, to see the movie 'before' reading or 'instead' of reading this book, as I said, I think you won't be TOO disappointed in the outcome!

5.0 out of 5 stars A spectacular mystery June 12 2003
By Donna
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ten people are invited to a mysterious island by old friends they know. All the guests become trapped on the island by a vicious storm.It is only after a short while that everyone of them is accused of murder. One by one the guest begin to die deaths relating to an old nursery rhyme entitled "Ten Little Indian Boys". Also, every time a guest dies, one of the china indian figures seated on the table in the dining room dissappear. Eventually the guests realize that the murderer must be one of them since there is no one else on the island. The murderer was a complete shock to me and the story is ingeniously plotted. I recommend this book to any die-hard mystery/crime fans. You will love absolutely love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Doom July 5 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This novel should have come with a warning.
DO NOT READ IF YOU'RE SEVERELY PARANOID
Because the machinations at the heart of this novel is that there are no secrets, even between strangers. And who knows, maybe one day, someone very evil and demented will happen upon the very thread that linked them all and pull at it. With devastating consequences.
Strangers stranded on an island is nothing new in the literature world, but strangers on a comfy island and getting nicked one by one is new, not to mention when after a while, no one else is left!
Toying with this plot, which Agatha Christie claimed to be the most taxing plot of them all, the story unfolds with a very energetic, very handsome man speeding down a road in a new shiny car with the women swooning after him. A few chapters later we see him choking on his drink while dining, and seconds later died. The first line of the nursery rhyme has been realised, and there are nine more to follow...
Christie's toying with the rhyme is very delightful, albeit cruel and frightening. There was a moment where the characters were discussing about the rhyme and wondering where in the world would their demented tormentor find a red herring or a bear, as suggested in these lines:
Four Little Indian boys going out to sea
A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.
Three Little Indian boys walking to the zoo
A big bear hugged one and then there were two.
Without giving anything away, suffice to say that Agatha Christie got her bear and red herring just the way she wanted them. And the ending is simply haunting and depressive. Not your usual Christie, but her best ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first Christie mystery and I got hooked! June 28 2004
By Katie
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I first read And then there were none in fifth grade (my older brother was reading it for class and I picked it up) and it scared me to death. It was my first Christie novel and although the plot totally freaked me out, I got hooked. Despite everything I loved it and years later when I finally got over my initial fear in middle school I reread it. And I got started on all her other books.
Now in high school, I look back on a year where I have made quite a dent into Agatha Christie's mysteries. I have been literally gobbling them up and enjoying each and every one. Some I like better than others, and this one will always be at the top of that list. It was my first and it is my favorite.
And then there were none has had an abundance of titles. From 10 Little Indians and something even less appropriate, the title has gradually changed until it settled on this. The story is of ten people, gathered on an island by someone they don't know. One by one they are done away with according to the nursery rhyme Ten Little Indians. (That was the part that really creeped me out but Christie uses the nursery rhyme plot device in quite a few of her mysteries.) The first dies at dinner the first day and everyone else slowly follows suit (according to the rhyme of course). The murders are sometimes quite gruesome. A search of the island reveals that the killer is one of the ten, and tensions mount as ten becomes nine, then eight, then seven...and then there were none.
My favorite character from the beginning was Vera, so I was able to stick with the book until the end. It seems slow at some parts, especially in the beginning, but soon it has you hooked as the murders come faster and closer together. Overall, it is a total masterpiece, and I still don't understand how Christie managed it.

2.0 out of 5 stars too obvious
the resolution of "and then there were none" is pretty simplistic. I figured most of it out except for who the killer was. So how do all ten end up dead? Read more
