Created by the world’s one of the best mystery writers, Agatha Christie, And Then There Were None is a perfect mystery-thriller novel that is never tiring. Her smart writing technique of including a poem, the isolated island, several plot twists, thrilling suspense, and count-down makes And Then There Were None more intense and captivating.
Beginning with the plot, 8 unfamiliar guests are invited into a mansion on a deserted island off the coast of England for a holiday. As they reach there, they do not find their host but do meet 2 staff members assigned to take care of their requirements and needs. Assisted to their particular room, they find a piece of parchment with a rhyme (Ten Little Indians) on it.
“Ten little boys went out to dine;
One choked his little self and then there were nine.
Nine little boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were eight.
Eight little boys traveling in Devon;
One said he’d stay there then there were seven.
Seven little boys chopping up sticks;
One chopped himself in half and then there were six.
Six little boys playing with a hive;
A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.
Five little boys going in for law;
One got in Chancery and then there were four.
Four little boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.
Three little boys walking in the zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were two.
Two little boys sitting in the sun;
One got frizzled up and then there was one.
One little boy left all alone;
He went out and hanged himself and then there were none.”
Afterward, they gather up for dinner and start comforting own-self in unacquainted surrounding. Eventually, they get to hear an unexpected booming voice convicting each of those 10 with a murder. Stunned and nervous, all of them start to get killed one by one but the thing is the island is isolated, no one else is there beside them, and one among them is the actual murderer.
‘And Then There Were None’ can be termed as a masterpiece because with each suspect’s secret is revealed, it starts to become a page-turner. The idea of chronicling the actions resulting in the death of ten Indian boys and causing the death of each victim, in the same way, is really unexpected and creepy. Weaving tons of suspense, this book must be very successful in keeping you on the edge of the seat. The concept of not including any transportation or communication possibility to a safe world, it adds a great value to the book.
