And Then There Was The Best Murder Mystery Story Ever !!,
This review is from: And Then There Were None (Mass Market Paperback)
Having been an avid Miss Marple and Poirot follower I was reluctant to read any Agatha Christie novel that did not 'star' the ingenius detectives. I decided to pick up this book on a car boot sale - not expecting to enjoy it. BUT HOW WRONG WAS I ???!!!
THIS BOOK IS AN ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE ! The plot is incredibly simple, based around a childrens nursery rhyme, on a deserted island off the coast of England. There are no distractions to the story, the characters are credible and the way the deaths are strung together is perfection itself !! The usual twists, turns and surprise ending are evident here - but this one is a complete original ! Totally unpredictable !
This really is my favourite book !I have converted all of my friends and family over to Agatha Christie by introducing them to this book. How I wish I could forget the conclusion, however, so that I may read this book time and time again !?
No other Agatha Christie - in my mind - can compare. Move over Marple & Poirot........
