And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This was good. Had me looking up the ‘Ten Little Soldiers’ nursery rhyme to guess the murders. I am really loving rediscovering Agatha.This novel is based on the poem and the deaths of her characters directly reflect the circumstances of the rhyme:

Ten Little Soldier Boys

Ten Little Soldier Boys went out to Dine, one choked his little self and then there were nine.

Nine  Little Soldier Boys stayed up very late; One overslept himself and then there were eight.

Eight  Little Soldier Boys travelling in Devon; One said he’d stay there and then there were seven.

Seven Little Soldier Boys chopping up sticks; One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.

Six  Little Soldier Boys playing with a hive; A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.

Five Little Soldier Boys going through a door; One stubbed his toe and then there were four.

Four Little Soldier Boys going out to sea; A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.

Three Little Soldier Boys walking in the zoo; A big bear hugged one and then there were two.

Two Little Soldier Boys sitting in the sun; One got frizzled up and then there was One.

One  Little Soldier Boy left all alone; He went and hanged himself and then there were none.
