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

I read this book for my literature class last year and I'm going to say that I was quite bored with it in the beggining. I didn't get her descriptions very well and frankly I barely understood any of it. But! I continued reading it and found that I was starting to like the mysterious air of the book. I started trying to guess who was the murderer and who was going to dy next. I really was excited to find out the murderer and to say I was really surprised was the least! I mean the murderer was so good at hiding everything and making sure everthing went according to plan. I also loved the ending how the detectives find the place later and are guessing how this could have occured! Warning: This book is not at all bloody or gory but the meaning of the story is! I suggest this book to anyone who enjoys mystery or horror books.
Good Points
It was a very well planned out plot

Vera Claythorne, a young secretary glad to have found a summer post, is the first of the Owens' houseguests to find the poem. It is "Ten Little Indians." When she shares it with the others, none of them think much of it- they are, after all, staying in a place called Indian Island.

I assume that most people are familiar with the name Agatha Christie, and though this was the first of her books that I read I all ready knew quite a bit about it. At one point I was even told who the guilty party was, so I did not expect to enjoy the book all that much. Once I started to read it, though, I realized that I didn't remember, or that I did and didn't believe it- And Then There Were None is that engrossing a book.


This book is clearly written by an author of no small talent.

Absolutely brillant. Christie, though always impressive, is amazing in this novel. Characters are stunningly described and the setting haunts you well after you close the book. If you have not read it, I implore you to as soon  as possible.


Christie succeeds in creating a perfect crime that even her famous Hercule Poirot could not possibly solve.

As my son got into his early teens, he gave up on reading. For another year or so I searched, mostly in vain, for anything that would draw him back to the world of books. Alas, almost nothing worked, and we have now officially given up.

This book was one of the rare exceptions. He only began it, because his father bet him $100 he would not be able to guess the murderer. He carried on reading it because there was a murder every twenty pages, and because he was intrigued by the puzzle. He finished the book in a weekend, did not win the $100, and still talks about how clever it was.

Unfortunately, when I tried him on other Christies they were a complete failure. Not enough action, and a boring little man, with waxed moustaches, talking endlessly about nothing....

This is one of my favorite Agatha Christie books of all time. I first read it in 7th grade and got completely hooked. The plot, setting, and characters completely pull you in and keep you guessing. In many mysteries, it's pretty easy to figure out who the culprit is, you uliminate the most likely culprit, and move on from there. However, with these books (and all of Agatha Christie's novels)figuring out whodunit isn't so easy, which is what makes her books so fascinating to read.

In this book, you watch as guest after guest gets killed and you see it coming, you just don't know who the next victim will be or who the killer is...even when it comes down to the last two, you're still in the dark.


This book, also known as Ten Little Indians, is my favorite and I would recommend this one to any mystery fan or anyone looking for a good book to get lost in. My second favorite is "Mouse Trap"- also an excellent mystery.

This book is a great mystery book with lots of suspense and a surprising ending. You would enjoy this book if you like mysteries but I believe that many that don't usually read mysteries would like this book.

Ten criminals were invited to a private island of a millionaire. Once they arrived, unknown to the fact that every one of them that have been invited were criminals...murderers is more like it. Because of a storm, the ten "guests" are forced to stay. During their first night there, their secrets are revealed at the dinner table by a mysterious voice. On the dinner table are ten little indian figures and in each of their bedrooms, they have the same poem:
"Ten little Indian boys going out to dine;
One went and choked himself and then there were nine.

Nine little Indian boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were eight.[poem goes on but is too long to recite]

What's scary about all this is that one by one, each of the ten guests die accordingly to the poem and once one of them is discovered dead, one of the indian figurines on the dinner table disappears. With each "guest" with a terrible, wicked past, everybody is suspicious of one another. Who is the killer?

And Then There Were None is the one of the best mystery books for young adults. It will keep you to the edge of your seat, changing who you think the criminal almost every time a page is read. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has a zest for mystery, and isn't afraid of small print. A+++

The book And Then There Were None was a very good and mysterious book that gave me the chills while I was reading it. The book had a lot of mysterious poeople and happenings that made it so good to read and so interesting. I had alot of trouble putting the book down. Every chapter ended with a cliffhanger which made me never stop. when each person dies on the mysteious island with no outside communication you can get really scared and afraid to find out who the killer really is. The author, Agagtha Christie is a very famous and good mystery author that died, but her books still share and hold her feelings on literature.
