    Started and finished in a day! Just as good as the first time I heard the story and, because I couldn’t remember who the murderer was, it kept me in suspense until the end. It was a fast and easy read. So glad I finally picked this one up!

    It's been seven years since I last read this and I somehow forgot who did this and it drove me nuts until I got to the end! It's a real windinger of a mystery that you have to be a genius to even begin to solve. Ten strangers are invited to Indian island under "murky" circumstances, they soon found out that their mysterious host Mr. U N Owen (unknown) hasn't bothered to show. Too late they realize that something is afoot and the guests begin to die off one at a time. Whose behind it? Is there someone else on the island? Is it one of them? The deaths get more and more outlandish and they all start to crack. Who would do such a thing? It's dark, deep, and one hell of a mystery. A classic that will never go out of style!

    Ten strangers have been invited by a mysterious host to stay for a visit in the host's luxurious house. This house resides on a private island. Once they all are settled in, they are confronted with the reason why they had been chosen for the occasion. The reason has each member in the house looking at each other with apprehension - and rightfully so. Unfortunately, their time together as a group is limited due to the one-by-one elimination of each house guest.I really enjoyed this! Throughout the entire book, the level of suspense was kept high by all the twists and turns. It made me eager to get back to it as soon as I could; I was definitely hooked. However, I have to say that the very ending wasn't as exciting as the rest of the book. For some reason, I expected to be wowed and I wasn't, but it was still a very good read and I'm glad I finally made time for it. (4.5/5)Originally posted on: Thoughts of Joy

    What a wonderful piece of writing! So simple, yet so complex a plot which kept me guessing and second guessing right to the end. A writer at the very top of her game. I just wonder why I waited so long to read this. Bravo Agatha!

    I really loved this book and would recommend this to almost anyone. There were a lot of twists and everything fits together so well even if you don't see it until the end. It's a book worth reading for a second time.

    This was the first novel by Christie that I read. And though it has been many years since I did, the story still sticks with me. A group of eight people is lured to an island, through an offer tailored specifically to him or her, invited to a remote island. There, they are all accused of having committed murder and escaping justice - and then they begin to die one by one. Who is the killer? Most well done mysteries have some kind of "twist" or misdirection to keep a reader from guessing the ending. Christie's other novel, Murder on the Orient Express, is probably more famous for doing so because of the film adaptations. However, this is her best selling novel - and for good reason. Orient Express is flashier, but the suspects are all very one dimensional and Poirot's deduction has left impact. Here, readers become more involved with the characters which provides more impact for the final resolution.An excellent mystery and strong evidence for Christie's nickname "Queen of Crime."
