And Then There Were None

By Sophie Williams


Ten people were sent to an island by a mysterious U.N Owen. They each were accused of a murder. They were all astounded and soon after that, the first murder happened. The string of murders followed a nursery rhyme that hung on the wall in their rooms. The mysterious host has not appeared but when they were accused of murder it was over a microphone. After a few murders, they concluded that one of them had to be the murderer, and one of them was the fake U.N Owen.

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.

Why You Should Read This Book

When I started this book, I didn't expect how much I was going to be intrigued. At the end of each chapter, I wanted so badly to read the next chapter. It is welly written and exciting. There are lots of events that I never thought would have happened. The end was so worth it once I read the manuscript and the epilogue.

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.
