“Be sure your sin will find thee out”

10 people are invited to an island and one by one they are killed, but by who? A simple premise that is made devastatingly effective by Agatha Christie’s writing. Through the interwoven perspectives, the recurring motif of the ‘Ten Little Soldier Boys’ Poem, Christie brilliantly builds doubt, tension and suspicion, you almost feel like you’re a member of the party. She kept me guessing until the very end!

As a side note: check out the most recent BBC adaptation of And Then There Were None, it’s pretty accurate and well worth a watch (especially for Mr Aiden Turner as Lombard)
