And Then There Were None | [Agatha Christie]

And Then There Were None

Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, are lured to an island mansion off the coast of Devon by the mysterious U.N. Owen. Over dinner, a record begins to play, and the voice of an unseen host accuses each person of hiding a guilty secret. That evening, former reckless driver Tony Marston is found murdered by a deadly dose of cyanide. The tension escalates as the survivors realise the killer is not only among them but is preparing to strike again...and again.

    "I suppose I'm just not a fan"

    Okay, so take my review with a grain of salt, if you are a fan of Christie, this title is probably just fine. This was just one of several attempts to break into the author's collection that met with failure. I suppose I'm just not meant to be a fan.

    The narrator did a fine job, but I can't really rate the story much higher as I suppose it's just not my cup of tea, so to speak.

    "Classic Christie keeps you guessing"

    This is one of the Christie's I first read as a teenager in the 60s (when it had a less politically correct name). None of which detracts from the craft Christie employs to bring together a group of diverse characters, each with their own secrets from the past, to an isolated island, where they are 'bumped off' one by one. The mechanism to get them there is a little contrived, but that is forgotten as the sense of menace and suspicion which imbues what follows builds up and increasingly affects the party and their actions. The lack of sympathy for the 'serving classes' struck me, but this is probably representative of Christie's time and background. It doesn't stop the book being a 'cracking good who dunnit?' though and the characters come through the narrators voice as being distinct and believable. The perpetrator and his/her motives are somewhat a surprise... or at least they were to me!

    Story
    "Fantastic"
    What made the experience of listening to And Then There Were None the most enjoyable?

    The story is first rate and Hugh Frasers narration is top class


    What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His wonderful array of voices that brought the characters off the page, I cant praise him enough for this work


    Any additional comments?

    I first read this 20 years ago and several times since; this audio version adds so much to the story due to the fantastic narration. Well done Hugh Fraser

    "No detective but a fantastic story"
    Where does And Then There Were None rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is probably one of the best Christie books I have listened to. It isn't the typical detective story that I am used to from Christie but it was fantastic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Christie builds up the tension and confusion so well and there was a fantastic plot twist. It was genuinely frightening towards the end. It was a thoroughly good book.


    Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    As ever Hugh Fraser read it well and he is so good at performing the different voices.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to it!

    "The finest 'locked room' mystery written"

    This is my favorite Agatha Christie book, it is the best 'locked room' mystery ever written. Having all the characters stuck on an island with an unknown killer picking them off one by one is the perfect story. We get the back story of each character built up throughout the novel and understand why each person has been picked for this island trip. Particularly brilliant is the epilogue which explains the why's and how's of the murders. A gripping story from start to finish.

    "Fantastic Who Dun It!"

    Typical Agatha Christie with suspense, drama and twist and turns of a racing track! There is little wonder why this book is the biggest selling crime Novak of all time and Hugh Fraser delivers the story fantastically well that keeps your attention and mind puzzled from beginning to end. Well worth a listen over and over again.

    "Another side to Agatha Christie"
    Where does And Then There Were None rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not the usual Agatha Christie but still very enjoyable. Difficult to rate against other AC's as style has changed.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    no particular favorite


    What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    excellent reading manner just like his other audio performances

    "Christie at her best"

    A fantastic tale; just when you think you've got it, you haven't, until there can be only one possible solution and then comes the how.
