And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie

Part of the Back to the Classics Challenge 2016, hosted by Books & Chocolate, for Category #2: 20th Century Classic (≥1965).


This is going to be a pretty short review, as I really don't have much to say about it. I enjoyed it immensely and am now hooked on Christie's works--this was the first one I'd read, and now I want to read all her books. The plot for this is one that I adore, because even if it becomes overused, there's still SO much you can do with it to make it unique, or to add twists that haven't been used before.


This was a relatively short read, and I finished it in two days, but I actually may have read it too fast... I probably missed some aspects of the story that may have been important to cluing in on who the killer was. I actually thought about taking notes on everyone and seeing who was where when (at least based on what Christie wrote), and see if I could figure it out from there. But I opted not to, and just enjoy the ride. And while I did enjoy it, there was just some dynamic that was missing for me. I'm not sure what it was. Although the killer certainly was not obvious, I was still expecting some major reveal at the end, and while there was that, it still wasn't as OMG WAAAT!??! as I had hoped.


Despite that, I really did enjoy the story, and will certainly want to revisit it again later, to see if I can figure it all out now that I know who-dun-it!
