And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

And Then There Were NoneAnd Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Agatha Christie weaves a unique and intriguing mystery in And Then There Were None. I didn't find the deaths contrite and I loved the use of the nursery rhyme to give clues not only to the reader, but to the characters in the book. Modern mystery writers could certainly use her works as a beacon of how to write true mystery with well developed characters and plot twists that leave the reader guessing. What seems obvious is often not, what seems insignificant is of major consequence - and that is how a mystery should be. Certainly a "good read!"
