Nominated Award: None


And Then There Were None is a suspenseful mystery. Ten people are sent to an island and are killed one by one corresponding to a nursery rhyme. However one of the ten people is the killer. And Then There Were None is my all time favorite mystery novel. I had no clue who the killer was until I finished the book. My favorite part of this book was how the characters changed throughout the chapters. Everyone's thoughts and feelings filled up the gaps if it were told from one person's view. I also loved how when I finished the book I began to really think about the justice system. In the law you can be innocence, but truly your guilty. For example Vera Claythorne was innocence by law but truly she had killed the boy.

One thing I didn't like about this book was that I thought that there were too many characters. I had to remind myself several times who was who because it was a bit confusing. However, the suspense of who's the killer wouldn't have been executed correctly if there weren't as many characters. I would rate this book a 4.6 out of 5 stars and recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery.
