And Then There Were None is a mystery novel written by Agatha Christie. It follows ten strangers who receive a mysterious invitation to an island off the Devon Coast. Isolated from the rest of the world, they quickly discover a murderer is among them and that their secrets have come back to haunt them.
This novel is considered a classic mystery novel for a reason. Filled to the brim with suspense, the book is impossible to put down. Christie’s characters all have distinctive traits and secrets that add to the originality of the book’s setup. The poem element featured sets it apart from other mystery novels. Christie’s writing is smart and descriptive, adding to the forbidding atmosphere. The twist at the end was surprising, but not confusing. I recommend this book for mystery lovers. I rate it five stars.
