And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
My name is Elizabeth. I love reading, and my favorite book is My Sister’s Keeper. I am in the 8th grade and enjoy dance.
And Then There Were None is written by Agatha Christie. It is an iconic murder mystery book, written by the queen of mystery herself (Agatha Christie). This book tells the story of 10 strangers who are mysteriously invited to Soldier Island. Each received a letter telling them where to be and why. Each letter was from a mysterious Owen. Once they get to the island, peculiar things start to happen. This is when they realize that this island might not be what it seems. Each person is accused of a crime- and this sets the mood for everyone. Each character soon begins to live in suspense, wondering if they will ever get off Soldier Island. There is not one main character, however, the chapters are broken up into sections and each section is from a different character’s point of view.
This book was amazing. I loved being able to follow along as I read, and try to figure out who the murderer is. The twists and turns really made me get into this book, and want to get to the bottom of the mystery. I would give this book a 9/10. It was really great, but it was also first published in 1939. This causes some of the language to be outdated, and a little hard to understand. Aside from the older language, this book was awesome. I found it was really satisfying, especially after reading the epilogue where you receive all the clues to solve the mystery.
