I finished listening to And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. There are two reasons I wanted to listen to the book. One I had seen the old movie a long time ago and never read the book. Two recently a short miniseries was on PBS called And Then There were None. I taped the short miniseries and decided it was time to watch it, but I wanted to read the book first.
Big Warning: there is some violence of course.
In case you don’t know the book, here’s a summary: Ten people are invited to an island by two mysterious people. The island is called Soldier Island. Those two people are Mr. and Mrs. Owen. They arrive on the island and after supper, they hear a record playing the “crimes” they have committed. Everywhere in the house they are staying is a nursery rhyme called Ten Little Indians. Then one of the guests die suddenly after the record played. Then slowly the guests die one by one until there are none.
I loved this book. I watched the 1945 movie version and the 1987 Russian movie version on Wednesday and Thursday. Now I’m listening to Mary Poppins by Pamela Lyndon Travers.
