Essay/Term paper: And then there were none
Essay, term paper, research paper: Cliff Notes
I recently read a mystery book
by the name of "And Then There Were None" by Agatha
Christie. I read this book because I have read other books
by Agatha Christie that were pretty well written. 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, 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 islan 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. 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. One more mystery was that every
murder followed, in order, the famous poem "Ten Little
Indians", which reads: Ten little Indian boys went out to
dine; One chocked 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 really enjoyed
this book and thought it to be 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 would definitley
recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery.
