What And Then There Were None is about:
First, there were ten - a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they're unwilling to reveal - and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder, and one by one they begin to fall prey to an unseen hand. As the only people on the island, unable to leave and unable to call for help, they know that the only possible suspects are among their number. And only the dead are above suspicion.
Why I wanted to read it: Some of you know how I like to blame others for my reading....so, I'm blaming Margot, Nan, Ryan, Kaye,and anyone else who loves Agatha Christie and has written reviews about her books. You are all very naughty!! And I thank you!

- The narrator, Hugh Fraser, was absolutely BRILLIANT!
- He captured the creepy factor of the whole story and his voices were truly spot-on! I couldn't get enough of this book and actually sat in my car for a few minutes listening to the story even though I had arrived at my destination.
- I absolutely had no CLUE as to who the real murderer was. I was totally blind-sighted when that person was revealed and then I just had to applaud Christie's magnificent ability to tell an intricate and engaging murder-mystery!
- I will never accept an invitation to a remote island from anyone..not even a friend!
Once again, I am blown away by Christie's superb writing skills and her amazing attention to those little details that make her books so popular and a joy to read or listen to. I have a feeling that I'm going to be plowing through all of her books this year...I'm on a roll!
