Review for Agatha Christie’s And then there were none

Hi, guys I’m back with another book. Madam Christie, the Queen of Crime. I decided to devote one of my post to her great book here it is.
Basically, 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. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none. And only the dead are above suspicion.
“Ten little Indian boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine.
Nine little Indian boys sat up very late; One overslept himself and then there were eight.
Eight little Indian boys travelling in 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 frizzled up and then there was one.
One little Indian boy left all alone; He went and hanged himself and then there were none.” — 464 likes
“In the midst of life, we are in death.”
As Madam Christie always had a poem for her book this is the one for this.
This book is a super thrilling and puzzling mystery. Here’s how it ranks
Plot: 5/5
Language: 5/5
Characters: 4/5
Madam Christie doesn’t lay emphasis on character appearance.

Agatha Christie also wrote romance novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott, and was occasionally published under the name Agatha Christie Mallowan.

Agatha Christie is the best-selling author of all time. She wrote eighty crime novels and story collections, fourteen plays, and several other books. Her books have sold roughly four billion copies and have been translated into 45 languages. She is the creator of the two most enduring figures in crime literature-Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple-and author of The Mousetrap, the longest-running play in the history of modern theatre.

Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller was born in Torquay, Devon, England, U.K., as the youngest of three. The Millers had two other children: Margaret Frary Miller (1879–1950), called Madge, who was eleven years Agatha’s senior, and Louis Montant Miller (1880–1929), called Monty, ten years older than Agatha.

During the First World War, she worked at a hospital as a nurse; later working at a hospital pharmacy, a job that influenced her work, as many of the murders in her books are carried out with poison.

On Christmas Eve 1914 Agatha married Archibald Christie, an aviator in the Royal Flying Corps. The couple had one daughter, Rosalind Hicks. They divorced in 1928, two years after Christie discovered her husband was having an affair.

Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, came out in 1920. During this marriage, Agatha published six novels, a collection of short stories, and a number of short stories in magazines.

In late 1926, Agatha’s husband, Archie, revealed that he was in love with another woman, Nancy Neele, and wanted a divorce. On 8 December 1926 the couple quarreled, and Archie Christie left their house Styles in Sunningdale, Berkshire, to spend the weekend with his mistress at Godalming, Surrey. That same evening Agatha disappeared from her home, leaving behind a letter for her secretary saying that she was going to Yorkshire. Her disappearance caused an outcry from the public, many of whom were admirers of her novels. Despite a massive manhunt, she was not found for eleven days.

In 1930, Christie married archaeologist Max Mallowan (Sir Max from 1968) after joining him in an archaeological dig. Their marriage was especially happy in the early years and remained so until Christie’s death in 1976. In 1977, Mallowan married his longtime associate, Barbara Parker.

Christie frequently used familiar settings for her stories. Christie’s travels with Mallowan contributed background to several of her novels set in the Middle East. Other novels (such as And Then There Were None) were set in and around Torquay, where she was born. Christie’s 1934 novel Murder on the Orient Express was written in the Hotel Pera Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, the southern terminus of the railway. The hotel maintains Christie’s room as a memorial to the author. The Greenway Estate in Devon, acquired by the couple as a summer residence in 1938, is now in the care of the National Trust.

Christie often stayed at Abney Hall in Cheshire, which was owned by her brother-in-law, James Watts. She based at least two of her stories on the hall: the short story The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, which is in the story collection of the same name, and the novel After the Funeral. “Abney became Agatha’s greatest inspiration for country-house life, with all the servants and grandeur which have been woven into her plots.

During the Second World War, Christie worked in the pharmacy at University College Hospital of University College, London, where she acquired a knowledge of poisons that she put to good use in her post-war crime novels.

To honour her many literary works, she was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 1956 New Year Honours. The next year, she became the President of the Detection Club. In the 1971 New Year Honours she was promoted Dame Commander o.

Halloween and Horror Books

Light your Jack o’lanterns for Halloween is coming. Don’t let the ghosts spot you.Get ready for Tricks and Treats. So, as Halloween is nearing I decided to do something special for you people on Halloween.
The books with most attracting horror, ghost and Halloween events are here.
5. The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde
Not that horror but good for a comfortable Halloween. It tells us that ghosts can be good. The story of a ghost who wants to be freed but the question is “how?”

4. The Harry Potter series
Remember Hagrid’s giant pumpkins. The live bats, Professor Flitwick’s marvelloues spells and the feeling when you pass through a ghost. The most vivid and great Halloween as we remember occurred in the Harry Potter series. Nearly Headless Nick’s Deathday. Remember the crackers with gifts.

3. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Mary Shelley monster that she made at 18, in her book. You will feel the chill and excitement of this story.
download (1)images
2. Dracula by Bram Stoker
“Welcome to my house. Come freely. Go safely. And leave something of the happiness you bring!”
These are pretty much the first words spoken to Jonathan Harker, one of the heroes of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, upon his arrival at Count Dracula’s castle in Transylvania, just minutes after a nightmare journey through the landscape of gothic horror: darkness, howling wolves, flames erupting out of the blue, frightened horses. Within a few days of his arrival, Harker will find himself talking of the Count’s ‘wickedly blazing eyes’ and ‘new schemes of villainy’ and have some hair-raising encounters with the man who is now the world’s most famous vampire: ‘The last I saw of Count Dracula was his kissing his hand to me, with a red light of triumph in his eyes, and with a smile that Judas in hell might be proud of.’ Several adventures involving sharp teeth, mirrors, garlic, crucifixes, bloody-mouthed corpses and big stakes will ensue.
The above quotations should make it abundantly clear what kind of book Dracula is. It’s sensation fiction, written nearly half a century after the heyday of that genre. It’s a cross between an epistolary novel, a detective novel and a save-my-wife story, and it’s full of scares, horror and disgust, all described in a lurid tone that befits the subject: the living dead. Or the Un-Dead, as the book’s other hero, my countryman Van Helsing, calls them

1. The Shining by Stephen King
Danny was only five years old but in the words of old Mr Halloran he was a ‘shiner’, aglow with psychic voltage. When his father became caretaker of the Overlook Hotel his visions grew frighteningly out of control.
As winter closed in and blizzards cut them off, the hotel seemed to develop a life of its own. It was meant to be empty, but who was the lady in Room 217, and who were the masked guests going up and down in the elevator? And why did the hedges shaped like animals seem so alive?
Somewhere, somehow there was an evil force in the hotel – and that too had begun to shine…

Not enough right? I’ll post some other soon. Till then, keep the zombies away.

What is a birthday to a Writer?????

Today is my birthday, Lucky me. On this day everyone of us thinks of themselves as someone special and sure we are, aren’t we. So I wish the rest of my friends whoever have their b’day today, ‘A very happy birthday’.
A writer expects some books and pens and diaries and surprisingly, that’s all I got. I received some wonderful books that I will read later but this evening is special for me.
‘Writers are boring people’ someone had once concluded in my new school before he met me. Now he thinks that they are cool. People think of writers as if they are the people who devote every free second of their life to writing and do nothing else. Sure we write but that doesn’t mean that we are trash. Many of my writer friends would agree with me. For example, take me I have a extremely large group of friends and my day was loaded with birthday wishes.
Now, let’s see ‘what do you give a writer?’ the question always arises. Today, I answer it, not just for me but for every writer.
A writer loves his creations and the best treat to them would be to read their work if not praise it. They would love it. Look at me, no one in my family and friends has time to read my stories and that’s why I started the blog, just to get a group of people who would listen to me.
A writer loves it when he has friends and that’s what you can gift a writer, be his friend.
Now, well I will give a treat to everyone who has their birthday today.
I will discuss all the important events that occurred today:
