Review #33

Title- And Then There Were None

Rating– 4/5

Genre- Murder mystery

POV- Third person, past tense

Trope- Crime, “who dunnit?”, classic

Similar Books/Comps– The Maidens

My emotions-  at first confused, but it all came together


Characters

The characters were easy to follow despite having so many of them, which surprised me.

Plot/Blurb-

Ten people, each with something to hide and something to fear, are invited to an isolated mansion on Indian Island by a host who, surprisingly, fails to appear. On the island they are cut off from everything but each other and the inescapable shadows of their own past lives. One by one, the guests share the darkest secrets of their wicked pasts. And one by one, they die…

Which among them is the killer and will any of them survive?

Best part-

Agatha seemed ahead of her times in regards to the style compared to other authors in her timeframe. I do appreciate that.


What I’d change-

A little more clear explanation in the beginning

Quote-
“But no artist, I now realize, can be satisfied with art alone. There is a natural craving for recognition which cannot be gain-said.”


Pacing- The chapter/sections were REALLY short, which made for a fast read, but was jolting and made it a bit choppy. I think this was also intentional.
