And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie a five hour read
Agatha Christie is the premier mystery writer and this is no disappointment. Her stories are not scary but intriguing as the reader and the character both seek to figure out what is going on. I think there is a legitimate question as to whether she gives the reader enough information to actually solve the mystery or does she keep the truth so hidden we don’t stand a chance. I did not see the solution to this one coming. One of the things she does do very well is set scenes of large numbers of people, in this case ten, and you are able to track them all. This book doe include some older vocabulary and uses some prejudicial terms that would not be used in current writing. These did not distract from the story and helps us understand the time period in which it was written.
