And Then There Were None Leaves Me Wanting More!
28 December 2015 | by memorable-nameSee all my reviews

As much as I have enjoyed watching Miss Marple and Poirot on TV over the past few years I must admit I have never read an Agatha Christie novel, and although I was familiar with the basic outline of And Then There Were None, 10 people on an island being murdered one by one, I didn't expect it to be so good.

The setting on an isolated island was intriguing, the tie in with the 10 Little Indians poem was clever and the disappearing figures with each death was a wonderful twist.

With each character having a troubled past it was impossible to single out an individual as the murderer but isn't that what a good thriller is all about, making you think, making you work ,to get the thoughts going, watching it with others made it fun as we all had different ideas of who the killer was. There were in hindsight clues that were never picked up on and red herrings that although lead you so far, didn't quite lead you to the guilty one and when the murderer is finally revealed it was well thought out and clever rather than just stupid.

You do have to give Agatha Christie credit even without her much loved 'old dear' and moustached, funny little Belgium man she could write a great who done it, and without the characteristic or familiar settings of these two detectives she was able to go further with the story line, delve deeper into the dark side of human nature.

It has certainly left me wanting more, and has left me intrigued as to other Agatha Christie novels that don't feature her more famous characters. Here's hoping they adapt more of her novels on TV or indeed maybe I should just pick up a book! lol
