The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, is romantic fiction.  Nick Carraway, who narrates the book, is Daisy Buchanan’s cousin. Daisy, who is married to Tom Buchanan, lives in the East Egg. Nick’s neighbor, Jay Gatsby, was once closely acquainted with Daisy many years ago. Whether or not he will win Daisy’s love back is what Jay is thoroughly worried about.

And Then There Were None is the first Agatha Christie novel I’ve read, and I was not disappointed.

Trying to figure out which of the guests lured the rest to this remote location, and then committed murder, is what keeps the reader engaged. As I am often disappointed when I can foresee the conclusion of a book, I was delighted that Christie’s writing style kept me on my toes, and didn’t make any one suspect stand out consistently. Each flawed characters’ flashbacks show possible malice
