And Then There Were None
By Sophie Williams
Now after so many deaths and accusations, there is only two left, a man and a woman. As they go back inside, the girl thought to herself that there was only two left, and she knew she wasn't the murderer, so if she kills him, she will live. She was wrong. After she shot him, she went up to her room. In her room, there was a rope hanging from the ceiling tied into a knot with a chair under it. For some reason she thought that is what she had to do.
After she died, the chair she kicked over was put back neatly, a long with everything else. Justice Wargrave was one of the ten that died earlier in the book. He always felt the need to kill and find adventure. So he gathered ten people at fault for taking someone else's life. He faked his death. When everyone was dead, he shot himself.
Ten Little Soldiers
In this book, while each person died, a soldier was taken away. People thought this was sick and bewildering. They thought it was because they were at Soldier Island, but it really represented them. They were soldiers in Justice's war.
I think this is the perfect place for the story. It is dark, isolated, and creepy. It is a great way to trap ten people you want to kill. They can't leave unless if they have a boat, which never comes.
Trust No One
This is a quote from the book. It shows how each man or woman must be independent. You can trust no one but yourself. You can not depend on someone else to watch your back.

Why You Should Read This Book
With every page, it was exciting. When every death came, I had a different theory than the last. It is amazing that every death follows the rhyme. It has great detail. This book is definitely something I suggest reading.
