Review: Ten Little Indians

NOTE: Couldn't find the correct cover
Title: Ten Little Indians(And Then There Were None)
Author: Agatha Christie
Source: Library
Finished: November 29th, 2010

First, there were ten - a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they're unwilling to reveal - and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder, and one by one they begin to fall prey to an unseen hand. As the only people on the island, unable to leave and unable to call for help, they know that the only possible suspects are among their number. And only the dead are above suspicion. 

First off, thank you Miss Feryerax for recommending this book, and making sure I tried it again  after I didn't enjoy it the first time. I'm glad you had me start again! 
Now I think I gave my review to everyone else on Shelfari(LOL) but not in detail, so if your not a Christie fan, you might wanna pick this one up!
Many of you know that I'm not a big horror fan. Or a fan of broken English. Well, I think this one convinced me to start liking them! Christie did an amazing job with Ten Little Indians. Or, what you would call it, And Then There Were None as it was later published as. Which I thought was kind of funny because if you put it together, it makes Ten Little Indians And Then There Were None. That almost makes sense. Both titles work though. Ok, enough about the title!
I don't want to give too much away, but I think that I can tell you who I suspected. 

My suspectees:
Dr. Armstrong(I was partially right)
Mr. Rogers(at the beginning)
Philip Lombard(I just had a bad instinct..)

So those were my suspectees. It's kinda of funny because I knew from the riddle that, that was how they were going to die. Someone got me trying to predict what was going to happen, now I keep thinking that's what's going to happen. Which makes no sense, yes, I know. 
If you liked Ten Little Indians(And Then There Were None) by Agatha Christie, join in my reading of her series Hercules Poirot next year!

This book is for all of you who wanted me to read horror, classic, mystery, and all that :P


  1. I have this one on my TBR List, was sure I would read it this year and never did, it will be my first try of AgathaC.

  2. This one was my first try of Christie. Got to say, I'm already hooked! Pathetic, right? I'm going to be reading her Hercules Poirot series next year! I can't wait!


What do you have to say, buddy?
