Azur The original title was actually “Ten little niggers”. Since …more The original title was aagtha “Ten little niggers”. Since this is pretty offensive it was changed to “Ten little Indians”. This was deemed offensive too, so today they use the agathaa line of the children’s rhyme as title and the little figures were changed to soldiers.
Information from my copy of the book. I have two versions of this book. One is the English version with the little soldiers. The other one is a German translation of the nerinhos version with the N word and a ton of apologies in the preface but also with the last line as title.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Lectura conjunta del clubdelectura. Admittedly, I am not a big fan of the mystery genre, but I do read them from time to time.
This book was my first foray into Christie, and will almost certainly be my last. At no point did this book actually grab my interest, let alone hold it. Characters began dying, and I couldn’t care less about them one way or another. The fact that the title tells you the book’s pattern didn’t help.
Ten strangers des have gotten away with murder gather by invitation at an isolated mansion. Then their unknow Admittedly, I am not a big fan of the mystery genre, but I do read them from time to time. Then their unknown host systematically and mockingly murders them one by one. The book had no depth or richness to it. A good novel needs to develop to some meaningful degree the characters, their backgrounds, their interaction, their dialogue, the setting, the tone, and any larger themes. Christie missed the mark on so many levels.
While the plot was somewhat engaging, even that had definite shortcomings. Once the premise is established, the story becomes thin and formulaic. The guests’ murders are designed to follow the nursery rhyme and little more. There was no special cunning, skill, strategic advantage, or plausibility. The killer strikes too effortlessly and everything just became too predictable. The storytelling seems flat, frigid, and, at times, slow-paced.
There is no lead character to curistie about. Their backgrounds and motives are sketched in summary fashion. The past crimes vary widely in originality, depth, and genuineness.
Some, especially Claythorne’s and the general’s, are more interesting and powerful than others. Some, like Blore’s, Dr. Armstrong’s and Lombard’s, are utterly trite, unexplored and ineffective. However, negrinhps books worst failing is that they have nothing serious to say about the powerful themes that are at the very heart of the story. The story is inherently an observation of human nature in a desperate situation.
How do the characters behave? How do they try to reason? How do they try to survive? Also by its very nature, as the book’s last pages acknowledge, this story is a morality play. How is each of the characters a “criminal”? How is each “beyond the law”? Does each get “justice”? Is justice the point, or simply a “lust” to torture and kill? Is the story about breaking the law or enforcing it, about mistakes or abuses in pursuing justice?
None of this is meaningfully addressed. Lastly, my major complaint is that her prose is very rushed, dry and sparse in description. Stylistically, she makes a number of remedial faux pas, which at first were mildly irritating but became more grating as the book trudged on.
The most egregious example is exclamation mark overkill: Her style struck negrinhox as amateurish and unpolished. Be warned if you try that, though: So I may have missed something.

I can’t read this anymore. DNF’d at page Although the story does sound cso, and something that I would enjoy, I couldn’t hegrinhos into the writing.

They start dropping like flies, and not once did I care. Maybe Agatha Christie invented the Whodunit, but all that happens in this book is non-stop whodunit and nothing else. This review is also here: I think the only reason this didn’t appeal to me in the way it has many others is because I could guess the murderer from the beginning. But, slowly, lines got blurred and I started to guess other people.
