And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, is a mystery novel about eight strangers who are summoned to an island by a mysterious host, U.N. Owen. These eight, along with two housekeepers, find out that they are trapped alone on the island and cannot find their host. Each of these strangers have a dark secret, which has marked them for murder. Their deaths will mirror a nursery rhyme they find in their rooms. One by one, each is picked off, and there will be none left by the weekend, according to the plan. Each person could be responsible, and the only ones cleared are the ones who were killed. And Then There Were None is a classic mystery, and one of the best I’ve ever read. The twists are thrilling, the characters are incredibly intriguing, and the ending left me stunning. This mystery is all I could ask for and more.
