Favourite Quote: “Ten little soldier boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were Nine.”
Review: My first plunge into the world of Agatha and certainly not a disappointment. A great story which is beautifully foreshadowed in the poem – a teaser of which is in the favourite quote above. Her ability to build suspense and keep you guessing right to the end have clearly had a strong influence on many successful crime novels and television shows. Well introduced characters with enough time spent with each to allow for character development that does not hinder the hastiness of the plot. Never before has the thought of going on holiday to a secluded island seemed so far from romanticised in my eyes.
