يجب أن أعترف أن ضيق أفقي هو مامنعني من دخول عالم أجاثا كريستيفمنذ صغري لم تبهرني أغلفة قصصها المترجمة للعربيةكما أن معرفة والدي لافلامها وقراءة والدتي لروايتها منذ الصغر جعلني أشعر أن الغموض بهذه القصص "موضة قديمة" وألغازها ستكون مكشوفة ليناهيك عن مقولة "لابد أن الخادم هو من [...]
This lovely mystery book is first and foremost about the administration of the long-overdue justice, right? At least that's what the mastermind behind it all believes.But the question is - who has the right to decide what justice is? And who is to decide what punishment serves the crime? And is perceived justice at all costs the ultimate goal, or is it the frequently pointless work of a maniac? As a matter of fact, what is justice after all?I think the story of this book (the one that may win th [...]
Before I begin I would like to apologise for my use of the N word in this review. It is necessary, I promise.This book was originally published in UK under a charming title of "Ten Little Niggers". When it came to the US version in the 40's someone decided that 'Ten Little Niggers' is not the most marketable title for a book so they changed it to 'Ten Little Indians' (as it was still ok to call Native Americans Indians then).Only years after someone decided that neither 'Niggers', nor 'Indians' [...]
I'm a big lover of Agatha Christie, she has written some fantastic murder mysteries and her stories never get tiring. But this is the one that just comes out on top every time.It partly, and quite amusingly, reminds me of that old American murder mystery in Sunset Beach. Basically, they're the only ones on this island and someone is killing them off one by one in accordance with the Ten Little Indians rhyme . And I swear I never saw it coming, and I'm usually very good at it. It's just a very cl [...]
5 stars to Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. This is the book that started my absolute love of the mystery genre. I was addicted and must have read it 3 or 4 times over the course of the year. Between the poem, the deserted island, the plot twist, the count-down, the pure clandestine suspense it couldn't get any better.StoryTen people receive a mystery letter from someone they don't know that indicates they should come to a remote island. Why would they go????? After arriving, they try [...]
Reread: 2015Because some Non-Crunchy Cool Classic Pantaloonless friends thought I read it wrongTurns out, I did. This was a really good mystery!insert long-winded apology with much grovelingHappy, guys?The story goes a bit like this:10 strangers each get invitations from someone they think they know, to stay on an island resort. Hells yeah! Sunshine & sea air!Well, resort is a bit of a misnomer. It's really a big house on an island. Still, it's famous for being a party place, and nobody in [...]
This year I have decided to take part in a women's century challenge in the group catching up on classics where the participants read a book written in ten consecutive decades. I chose to focus on the 20th century and my 1930s selection is And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. Although I had previously read some of her Hercule Poirot cases, this is my first stand alone mystery of Christie's that I have read. A suspenseful premise for a case, And Then There Were None left me on edge for th [...]
Extraordinary and gripping novel!I knew that the best way to start reading the literary work by Agatha Christie was choosing her most known book. And There were none is the best-selling mystery novel of all time with 100 million of copies, and the fifth book in the list comprehending all genres. That is something to give to Agatha Christie the respect that she deserves.Initially this novel on UK was titled Ten Little Niggers, only because the original nursery rhyme was called that but it was obv [...]

“When the sea goes down, there will come from the mainland boats and men. And they will find ten dead bodies and an unsolved problem on Soldier Island.”My first Agatha Christie, and a good one indeed. And Then There Were None just recently came to my attention. Maybe it was the new mini series or the many people suddenly reading this, but I was intruiged immediately. I can't wait to watch the series!Agatha Christie totally tricked me. I thought I had figured it out, but I was wrong. This nov [...]
Wow! This is a masterpiece! Dame Agatha Christie's achievement is remarkable. She creates ten characters, all suspected of murder, who are lured to an island. She has them meet their deaths one by one as nominated in the nursery rhyme "Ten Little Indians" which is displayed in their rooms. She has each murder occur in a situation where almost all the other island guests might have had opportunity to commit it. Set on an isolated island without contact of the outside civilization, a group of ten [...]
Η αξία και η γοητεία του κλασικού αστυνομικού μυστηρίου. Εκπληκτική πλοκή,εξαιρετική περιγραφή και σκιαγράφηση ηρώων καθώς η συναισθηματική τους φόρτιση μεταλλάσσεται απο στιγμή σε στιγμή. Όλες οι ανθρώπινες αδυναμίες και αρετές σε ακραία σημεία. Απο το πάθος στο λάθος. Α [...]
SUCH a superb mystery. Wow.
I admit I am a late, reluctant and suspicious convert to Christie. I avoided her studiously as an adolescent, because dozens and dozens of her paperbacks were always on sale with equally cheap indistinguishable romances and other 'women's books,' and I wanted no part of those. I read Chandler, not Christie; Hammett, not Sayers; James, not Marsh. I even read a few Spillane books, for Chrissakes, at a friend's urging (UGH), but still no Christie. Those endless TV adaptations, with the dotty Miss M [...]
Ten little Indian boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine.No wonder this is considered to be the best book of Agatha Christie's ever - it is truly a masterpiece. Nine little Indian boys sat up very late; One overslept himself and then there were eightAnd I am not just saying it- I truly mean it. I didn't just discovered it and am not speaking on a high rush of that fresh new read feeling - this was a re-read for me. And I don't re-read books very often - [...]

My friend Amelie and I used this book as half of our corpus when we wrote our 1990 paper,An Implementable Semantics for Comparative Constructions . We spent several days combing through the text, extracting and categorizing every single occurrence of a comparative construction. So you'll appreciate that I know what I'm talking about when I say it's better than most murder mysteries.

To talk about the plot of this book however briefly would give spoilers right away. For people who have not read them, spoilers kill Agatha Christie books. Basically there is a small isolated island bought by an American millionaire which was later sold to a mysterious party generating a lot of rumors about the latest buyer. A group of very different people ended up on the island.If you are familiar with the Dame of Mystery's writing you would guess there will be a murder. If you have read sever [...]
I'm a confirmed puzzle lover. Crosswords, sudoko, Scrabble, Clue, card games. I love them all. Puzzle love extends to my go-to lit genre. The way an author crafts a mystery with a surprise yet plausible ending is the best in my book (pun, intended). There is so much fun to be had in gathering clues and solving the puzzle the author has created.That is all the more reason the confession I have to make is deeply shameful. This is the first Agatha Christie book I have ever read in my life.I know. I [...]
¡Qué genialidad este libro! Cómo me encanta leer novelas que me impactan y que quedan en mi mente durante mucho tiempoNo soy un asiduo lector de novelas policiales. Es más, para ser sincero he leído muy poco. Apenas los tres cuentos de Edgar Allan Poe (“Los crímenes de la calle Morgue”, “El misterio de Marie Rogêt” y “La carta robada”) que comenzaron con el género, “Estudio en escarlata” de Sir Arthur Conan Doyle y un volumen de 800 páginas llamado “De Poe a Simenon: A [...]

“It's the Final Countdown do do do doo do do dododo!”I've always wanted to start an Agatha Christie review with a bit of cheesy Swedish hair metal. And Then There Were None has been declaredthe world's favourite Agatha Christie novel, not to mention the bestselling crime novel of all time (same Guardian source). Considering she wrote hundreds of books, including iconic titles likeMurder on the Orient Express andMurder at the Vicarage, this is clearly the definitive Christie. Her ace detectiv [...]
لم يخطئ النقاد حين صنفوا هذه الرائعة من أكثر روايات أجاثا دقة وادهاشاً انهمكت في قراءتها وأنهيتها رغماً عني سريعا للفضول الشديد الذي ألم بي لمعرفة النهاية الغير متوقعه أبداً يدهشني في اجاثا دقتها في وصف المشاهد لدرجة أني أتخيل نفسي في موقع الحدث ان أردت أن تجرب قراءة الروا [...]
Two things I can't believe: (1) That it's taken me sooo long to read this book (being that I'm a big mystery fan), and (2) that I've been able to avoid spoilers given how popular this book is (and has been for the past 78 years)! It's an amazing, complicated, intricate, puzzling mystery, and I enjoyed it very much. Borrowed from the library.
Lo comencé con mucha expectativa. Me encanta este género literario y la mayoría de los lectores de GR concuerda en que este libro es el mejor de Agatha Christie. Y así de bueno también lo estaba encontrando yo hasta… que llegó el desenlace.Sin duda, el atractivo de la novela es ir juntando las piezas para resolver el misterio que nos presenta, por lo que encontré bastante decepcionante darme cuenta, al llegar a las últimas páginas, que daba lo mismo quien fuera el asesino.Durante toda [...]
Stupendous!!! I cannot believe this book was written back in 1939!! It truly is a timeless story. I will have to read more of Agatha's books.
This book, first published in 1939, and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (1926), are generally considered to be Agatha Christie's most outstanding achievements. Both are premier examples of the "locked room" mystery, and this book is perhaps the most elaborate puzzle mystery ever published. Christie noted later that it was the most difficult book she ever wrote and the one that pleased her the most.As the book opens, eight people who are all strangers to each other, accept an invitation to spend the [...]
Wow! I have been quite good at rationing out 5 stars this year, but this week I have been handing them to books like it is candy. But when a book literally grabs hold of you and you cannot do a thing, even when it means that you lay on your bed, wrapped only in a towel and your sweetie asks if you'll ever be ready to head out for brunch, the right response is always "Not until I solve the crime, dear." I was intrigued to read Agatha Christie based on my 2017 reading choices of " The Woman on the [...]
