(Ten Little Indians)
Agatha Christie was born in 1890 in Torquay in England.

Her father was called Frederick Miller so she was born as Agatha Mary
Clarissa Miller. She was educated at home and studied singing and piano in
Paris. In 1914 she married Archibald Christie, but then World War I had
broken out. Agatha worked as a nurse in a Red Cross hospital in Torquay at
that time and that experience was useful later on. When I read this mystery
book by the name of “And Then They Were None” (also found as “Ten Little
Indians”) by Agatha Christie. I read this book because it stuck out when I
decided to choose one, I had heard of her before but had not finished any
of her books (I started one last year but the year ended before I could
finish so I had to return it. I like mystery stories. One of the mysteries
to this book was, of course, who killed all of the innocent people. Another
mystery was that every time another person was killed a little Indian
figure would disappear from the edges of a serving plate. Ten people are
invited to an island, called “Indian Island”, by letters that were signed
by people they had met before. When they got to the island, they found out
that their host, U.N.Owen, (shortly figured out to be “Unknown”) had not
arrived yet. At dinner, they heard a voice, accusing each of them of a
murder, which they were all guilty of. After one of them is killed,
according to the first verse of a poem that is framed above each of their
beds called “Ten Little Indians”, they figure out that the murderer is one
of them! As more people are killed off, one by one, the group narrows the
suspect list down, until only one is left alive but she figured that she
would never get off the island anyway, and she hung herself from the
ceiling by putting a noose around her neck and kicking the chair away on
which she was standing, but she was not the killer. In “And Then There
Where None” by Agatha Christie, they didn’t say when it took place, but I
wouldn’t be surprised that it was in the 1900’s because that’s when she
wrote it. It was on an island in the middle of the ocean. You couldn’t see
any other land that surrounded it because it was really in the middle of
nowhere! The general atmosphere was dark because there was a lot of trees
and the ocean was nice but cold. They didn’t exactly say where it was
located, but I’m pretty sure it was in the Indian Ocean because they said
it was called “Indian Island”! I really thought that this mystery story was
very well written, and, in that case, very interesting! What I learned
about this story is that you should never go somewhere with people you
don’t really know and like I said before: ” Ten people are invited to an
island, called “Indian Island”, by letters that were signed by people they
had met before”. I would never go somewhere far away with people I just
met! This is a mystery story so anything can happen, which I know now! It
has a lot of changing meanings and it’s a very doubtful story. You never
know what is going to happen or how it’s going to finish! It’s a very
invented story (I think!) and the ideas of the author are almost impossible
to happen in reel life, but I guess that’s what makes the story
interesting! I really enjoyed this book and thought it was entertaining. It
was a hard book to put down and I read about half of the book in one day
because it was so interesting. And since it is a mystery, I thought I knew
exactly what was going to happen, but it had a strange twist right towards
the end. I really enjoyed that all the murders where done exactly how the
famous poem “Ten Little Indians” said, which reads: “Ten little Indian boys
went out to dine; One choked his self and then there were nine. Nine Indian
boys sat up very late; One overslept himself then there were eight. Eight
Indian boys traveling in Devon; One said he’d stay there then there were
seven. Seven Indian boys chopping up sticks; One chopped himself in halves
then there were six. Six Indian boys playing with a hive; A bumble-bee
stung one then there were five. Five Indian boys going in for law; One got
in Chancery then there were four. Four Indian boys going out to sea; A red
herring swallowed one then there were three. Three Indian boys walking in
the zoo; A big bear hugged one then there were two. Two Indian boys sitting
in the sun; One got all frizzled up then there was one. One Indian boy left
all alone; He went and hanged himself and then there were none.” I would
definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery.
