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 unknown 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.

EXPECTATIONS: This book is probably the most famous crime book out there and so I as a crime lover had to finally get my hands on it. Besides, as I have not read any of Agatha's books this was highly recommended to me as the first entry into this amazing world of Agatha.

THE WORLD: Our world but many years in the past way before mobile phones and cable TV. Basically in this book we are on the isolated island where the main characters arrive under different circumstances and where they meet their end. 

CHARACTERS: I won't be talking about main characters. But Agatha really did a great job writing each of them especially when you think how short this book is and how many main characters we have. We do know each of them has committed a crime but never met justice but even tho you as a reader know that they are not good people it is still hard to stay within that opinion. In these 264 pages characters become alive and you are intrigued to know who is lying and who will die next. 


GOOD: The way this rhyme was created into a story was just brilliant!

BAD: Could have been longer, it is really sad this masterpiece was only 264 pages long.

OVERALL: I really enjoyed this book and will for sure pick other books of Agatha. She is an amazing author! And of course to those who have not read this book I highly recommend it. 

What do you think about AND THEN THERE WERE NONE?
