|And Then There Were None|
by Agatha Christie
“Ten little soldier boys went out to dine…And then there were None.”
I had initially DNF this book at 48%, but after reading another by the same author, I decided to give this story another chance. Second time rereading this book brought a much calm mind for me since I was not rushing to read it; subtle hints are more noticeable now.
As for the story, ten individuals are lured to a remote island of not knowing they are led to their death by an U.N. Owens. What became of a childish nursery rhyme turned into reality as they tried to find out who is trying to kill them off.
Unlike the characters of this book, the nursery rhyme of ten little solders was main reason as to why I decided to pick this book up. Most mystery stories have deaths of characters done unexpectedly, but in this case, their deaths foreseen in a simple riddle. The catch is each character is guilty in some ways of their crime.
It is self-explanatory that these individuals were gathered because they had committed crime, but the real question is who is the wolf in sheep clothing. This where the author had me guessing until the very end.
