Ten people, each with something to hide and something to fear, are invited to a lonely mansion on Indian Island by a host who fails to appear but leaves a recording accusing all of undetected murder. Cut off by his orders, one by one each die according to a nursery rhyme Ten Little Indians. A confession in a bottle solves how nobody remains alive. 


4Personally, I loved the book! It was simple and mysterious. Kept me guessing all the time, but somehow if you use your brains in the first few pages you’ll recognise the killer easy enough (I did), but what blows the mind is that, the person you guessed as the killer gets murdered quite soon!

That’s the real catching point for me because in the end its revealed that he was’t dead at that time and was the last one to die.

I liked the fact that Mr. Wargrave’s killing spree was triggered by the fact that there are various situations where the suspect gets away very easily even after being guilty.

I loved it and will suggest it to those who love mysteries and also to those who like short books that can be read in a day or two.

  1. Agatha Christie was the first author that I ever fell in love with. That was back in 3rd grade. Our school library was divided into sections according to grade appropriateness. I had read the 1st grade section by the end of 1st grade, 2nd grade by the end of 2nd grade, and 3rd grade halfway through 3rd grade. I complained about not having any more books to read and got approval to choose books from the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade sections. That’s when I found Agatha Christie, and I was her biggest fan! Now she’s second to Stephen King……


    1. Wow… great to meet an Agatha Christie fan! I recently started reading her books and absolutely love’em. I like Stephen King as well.
      I guess we share the same taste in reading. Would love to your other favourite authors as well 🙂


      1. After King and Christie, those for whom I have read all their writings include John Grisham, Dennis Lahane, Michael Chrichton, Anne Rice, J. K. Rowling, James Patterson, Ray Bradbury. Many more that are not coming immediately to mind.


    1. Thanks. I wrote this review when I was just starting out as a reviewer. Good thing you commented here, I completely forgot that I need to edit the older reviews.
      I also love And There Were None.
      Thanks a lot for visiting.
      Have a great weekend!
