Who Really Did It All???

And Then There Were None
(Ten Little Indians) Author: Agatha Christie
BY: Fernanda Castro Hidalgo

The Ten little Indians is a story that through out the book never really gives you what you want- Who planned and executed this mass murder?

Facts on And Then There Were None:

1. 10 people are selected for this plan, including Edward George Armstrong, Emily Caroline Brent, William Henry Blore (who had in the beginning gone by the name Davis), Vera Elizabeth Claythorne, Phillip Lombard, John Gordon Macarthur, Anthony James Marston, Thomas Rogers and Ethel Rogers, Lawrence John Wargrave.

2. Each Person is killed by following an old nursery rhyme called the Ten Little Indians. The poem goes like this:

Ten Little Indian boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine.

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

Eight Little Indian boys travelling to Devon; One said he'd stay there and then there were seven.

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

Six Little Indian boys playing with a hive; a Bumblebee stung one and then there were five.

Five Little Indian boys going in for law; One got in Chancery and then there were four.

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

Three Little Indian boys walking in the Zoo; a Big Bear hugged one and then there were two.

Two Little Indian boys sitting in the sun; One got all frizzled up and then there was one.

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

3. The entire plan takes only one week to take place.

4. Each 'Guest' was sent a letter inviting them to Indian Island, but the weird thing is that each person saw the signature at the bottom of the letter as a different name, even though in truth the name was the same on every letter- U. N. Owen (Unknown)

5. The guest were going to Indian Island, the island where they were going to spend a  'vacation'.


1. This story keeps you guessing the entire time who was behind it all.

2. Once you have started this book, even thought the beginning isn't the best middle to the end makes it impossible for you to put it down.

3. This story is great for people who like mystery books or murder themed books.

4. Thrust me you will NOT see the ending coming.
