And Then There Were None
By: Agatha Christie
Format/Source: eBook; my purchase
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.
This is actually the second Agatha Christie novel I’ve read to date. I’ve long heard of her books–being such a titan in the mystery genre–and been wanting to read her books but yeah, I just never got around to it. I read one of her other novels earlier this year, The Secret Adversary, which was a fun if not okay read. I did however watch the BBC miniseries that this book was based off recently starring quite the cast (Charles Dance, Gorman Burn, Sam O’Neill, Aidan Turner) which I enjoyed and wanted to read the book to see how the plot unfolded in the novel format.
