And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

“One little soldier boy left all alone;

He went and hanged himself

And then there were None.” 

Agatha Christie follows this poem throughout the novel. A nursery rhyme gone wrong. In a clever way, Christie uses a silly poem to determine the fate of each character.

The well detailed mystery novel by the “Queen of Mystery” did not let me down. In the book, ten strangers are lured onto a mysterious island by a mysterious host. Once the guests arrive, they realize that matters are quite strange when nobody knows who invited them there. The once relaxing vacation turns into a stressful stay. Each person on the island is accused of murdering someone, making the situation interesting. Later that night, the killer strikes for the first time. More and more guests continue to die, leaving the strangers to understand that a murderer is among them. Leaving the island is impossible due to an oncoming storm. The guests must figure out who the killer is before they all end up dead.

This novel has a great twist in the end, I am sure it is almost impractical to guess who did it. This is a great book to keep you entertained. I read this book in a matter of days and could not put it down.
