This is a second read-through for me and she STILL got me! This is such a fantastic example and upgrade of the locked room mystery. You think you know? You think you‘ve solved it? No you haven‘t. Ten people are lured to an isolated island where they are absolutely alone. Not one of them leaves the island alive…so who did it? My insomnia was acting up, so I decided to do the audio. Didn‘t cure the insomnia but it did help me relax. ☺️😂🧡📚

This one is a bit different from most Agatha Christie works - more a psichological thriller than a straightforward mistery - but is still one of her best.

Agatha Christie was quoted: I had written this book because it was so difficult to do that the idea had fascinated me. Then people had to die without it becoming ridiculous or the murderer being obvious. I wrote the book after a tremendous amount of planning, and I was pleased with what I had of it. It was clear, straightforward, baffling, and yet had an epilogue in order to explain it.

True to her word, this is an absolute gem!

Sooooo, the author/publisher decided to change the references to a heinously racist song, including the book's title, for modern audiences, but leaving in other racist/anti-Semitic descriptions and remarks was deemed palatable?! Hypocritical to say the least. Other than that MAJOR problem, and some vague classism and sexism, prose was tightly plotted, well paced, good characterization of large cast, with a clever reveal I didn't see coming. 1/2

Robotswithpersonality Question from a mystery newbie: Is Agatha Christie always a minefield of the 'product of her time' variety, aka, problematic content? Please recc the best of/least offensive of her writings OR alternate good modern mystery writers. Pls &thnx! 🙏🏻 2mo
Robotswithpersonality 2/2 I think as someone new to this genre, this is bolstering my hope that, as opposed to thrillers, which seem to glory in the drama of characters' ill deeds, mystery focuses more on the unravelling of events. I want more! 2mo
AshleyHoss820 @Robotswithpersonality This is a difficult one because this is common when reading (almost) any past text. I was reading Sons & Lovers and it was fine until the end when, for no reason, a racist Irish nun is inserted for a few pages…😕😒 Anyway, it‘s been a while since I‘ve read it, but I thought The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Christie) was brilliant! I don‘t remember it being problematic, but I apologize in advance if it is! (edited) 1mo

1. They‘re both gone unfortunately, but I‘d love to be friends with Terry Pratchett & Douglas Adams. My sense of humour to a T. Author that‘s alive? Probably Stephen King.
2. Mostly online now whether through online bookstores or sites like Litsy, GR, Storygraph, IG etc.
3. The tagged book is one of Dame Agatha‘s most mind bending stories.

Why is this book on some banned school lists? Because of the original titles, which I won't type here. And even when the 3rd “acceptable“ title came out, the poem inside the book can still be construed as showing prejudice. Still. One of the best locked-room murder mysteries you'll ever read. My students LOVED it, and I enjoyed cracking open the case every year I taught it.

Reading.w.Dee I LOVED this book! It was such a good story, so many good well seeded red herrings! 2mo
dabbe @Reading.w.Dee I know! The students NEVER figured out who the killer was. It was the perfect book to introduce detective fiction to them--right before we delved into Sherlock Holmes. 2mo

It was difficult not to picture the actors from Clue while listening to this one. I know that I read it in 7th grade (as Ten Little Indians), but I retained very little from that reading and what I do remember is mixed up with a farcical radio play we wrote as a reading project. This might be the darkest Christie I've read so far. Despite mixed feelings about the epilogues and cringey feelings about the title's history, I quite like this mystery.

Random but I was first drawn to this book because ATTWN is my favorite Spring Awakening song of the same title. Second #trappedonanisland book for September. I didn‘t realize it took place on an island when I put it on my list for this challenge 😆 I was following along with the Kindle version and was like nooo when that “before you go” screen popped up before the epilogue. Then I was like ok good we get an explanation. I was about to be mad 😂

persephone1408 I watched the show because of my love for the actor Aiden Turner (the Irish one) 😊 I found it to be my favorite Agatha Christie adaptation. 4mo

This book was a ride, Miss Christie's brain is definitely an interesting place. I've read 10 books by her so far this year and this is the one that has definitely stuck with me the most. Last year I read Murder on the Orient Express and I thought that one had a twist ending but this book beats that one out.

1. I've always liked to read, but I wasn't really an avid reader until my late 20's. My goal used to be "read 3 books a year" and I NEVER met that goal. Then I read "And Then There Were None". Soooo I'm gonna say, Agatha Christie gave me my love for reading. She's a close personal friend of mine, duh.

Not as exciting as I originally thought it would be. I understand some of the reviews saying it felt as though Agatha Christie didn't choose the murderer until after she had finished writing. I enjoy being able to pick up on clues along the way and solve the mystery too. In some parts it was difficult to remember all of the characters, their personalities were meshed together. Especially the men. Overall I give this book 2.5 stars.

This was a re-read for me for my sister‘s book club. Luckily for me I didn‘t remember who the murderer was so it was like I was reading it for the first time. I did like this more the second time but I wish Christie had given us more clues along the way so we could feel more involved as readers in solving the mystery ourselves. I think she wrote the story and then went back and decided who the murderer was which isn‘t as good for the reader.

Roary47 That is one of my favorites. I love that cover 😍. 7mo
LibrarianRyan I feel the same way you did. This was not a favorite. I just do not like a Christie style mystery. But the history of this book is quite interesting. from the 60-80s it was called 10 Little Indians, but originally in Brittan, it was 10 little N(word)s. It was renamed to be and then there was none like the American version years later. Even the rhymes in the two books are different. 7mo

The most fun I've had with an audiobook yet; it's narrated by Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey fans, heads up). I've stayed away from any movies based on Agatha Christie books just because I want to pick my way slowly through all her novels, in full suspense. This was well worth the wait: ten strangers are invited to an island by a mysterious owner only to realize it's a trap. One of them is not who they say they are and is intent on killing the rest.

1. I usually enjoy surprises in stories, but not ones that come out of nowhere. I appreciate good foreshadowing.
2. This one just blew my mind when I first read it. 🤯
3. The thing I love the best about Christie, is that when I go back and reread I find all the breadcrumbs she laid out.

Enjoyable, but not engrossing. I don‘t feel like the mystery was one I could have figured out, and that disappoints me. Also, I knew the hints of the supernatural were not going to go anywhere, but I so wanted them to!

I will read more Christie… if only because I noticed after I started reading this that the overdue book club book was actually Murder On the Orient Express 🤦🏻‍♀️

My first Agatha Christie book! 😛 This was a great little read! It kept me riveted, it kept me on the edge of my seat, and it kept me guessing. Admittedly it requires a great degree of suspension of disbelief, but the effect was still fantastic. The characters weren‘t great, but they were good enough I suppose. The writing was a little simplistic, but the story was mostly well told. I can see why this is one of the bestselling books ever. 😮

This is such a quick read, I read the entire thing in five hours. It's very straight to the point in terms of plot, there's no fluff or fancy sentences, every word is there for a reason. Same for the characters, you only know what you need to know about them, there's no added filler to flesh them out.

This whole book is designed for you as the reader to figure out who is the murderer. To me it felt very much like the boardgame cluedo.

2. Get some exercise, if you feel up to it and then eat the extra calories you burn in comfort food.
3. Really any murder mystery will do. Cozies welcome and appreciated as well.

Squid Game is the modern retelling of Agatha Christie‘s And Then There Were None, and you cannot convince me otherwise. The psychology in choosing the players, the island setting, the children‘s games, and the 001 ‘character twist‘ are too many to be coincidental!

It‘s a very decent retelling though I just prefer a darker cinematic look.
