Book Review: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
|Book Name:||And Then There Were None|
I used to wonder why it was that I still remembered the Bollywood movie Gumnaam even though it is more than a decade since I last watched it. In the book And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, I finally found the answer. And it’s not that I haven’t watched any thrillers – Bollywood, Hollywood etc since then, or I haven’t read any books. Funnily though, I don’t even remember the movie story.
But this book simply blew me awake. What is a perfect murder and that too of a serial kind when no one can figure out the mode it was carried out. And brilliantly, it’s revealed in the end by a letter sent to the Investigation Department by none other than the murderer. I have been a fan of Agatha Christie books during my school days which I continued to be for initial couple of years in college and even though I had not completed reading all books of hers, I moved on to other authors. I still wonder how I missed reading this book, probably I can curse the internet for not being so readily available that point in time.
Brilliant. Intelligent. Masterpiece. No other words. I can keep on examining each and every page and design of the murder, but I am doubtful that I might give something away. So please please please do pick this book and start it off right away.
Keep watching my blog for more of Agatha Christie books.
