And Then There Were None

And Then There Were None And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

Goodreads reviews

Genre: Mystery

Age: YA, Adult

POV: 3rd person

Format: Audio book

Narrator: Dan Stevens

Summary: Ten people, each with something to hide and something to fear, are invited to a lonely mansion on Soldier Island. One by one they are murder.
Review: Afore reading a thriller that wasn’t “thrilling” I needed to read a mystery that I know is good. And then there were none is well plotted out with so many twists and turns. Kept me guessing until the end.

The poem ‘Ten Little Soldiers’ that use throughout the book creates a dramatic irony that foreshadows each character’s death. The moments leading up to the death gives out a sense of unease between the characters and the reader.

which a large cast of characters at first it hard to keep up. The story emphasis heavily on plot and suspense.

Audio: It would have been interesting if the narrations were done with a full cast. Instead I’m listening to one narrator trying to make each character’s voice distinct. It all falls short in doing so.

Points:

Audio: 4/5 – for a while lost me with all the characters but, it does create an atmosphere of suspense.

Characters: 5/5 – The psychology of each character is play out well. Get to see character struggle with their dark past and the ones that left slowly drive into madness.

Plot: 5/5 – Cleverly potted. Not much to say here.

Bonus Points:

+ 1 – This is the first Agatha Christie’s book I have read and will looking for more of her books.

Total: 15/20
