Today’s well laid out review is by 14 year old Rishabh Fuke from Nagpur, is of one a book by the most renowned authors of crime fiction, Agatha Christie.
14 years old Rishabh goes to Centre Point School Dabha and is a student of Young Orators. His hobbies include writing, reading, programming, and playing drums.
Book- And then there were none
Author- Agatha Christie
Published in – 1939
This is a fascinating book with several twists and turns in it, because of which the reader is left hanging at the edge of his seat the whole time.
It is a masterpiece written by Agatha Christie, one of the most renowned authors of crime fiction. At 100 million, it is one of the most sold books in the world. The title of the book comes from the nursery rhyme, ‘Ten little soldier boys,’ in which there are ten soldiers, who are killed one by one in most peculiar ways, till there are none left. After reading the poem, one might guess what happens in the book, but that doesn’t make it any less interesting. On the contrary, it makes it all the more thrilling to read.
Movie adaptation of the book- René Clair, French film maker
Released in – 1945
The movie is quite similar to the book. The sequence of events jibes very well with the book, and the visual imagery created by the book is extremely similar to what happens in the movie. Justice Wargrave looked almost exactly the way I had pictured him.
Every single one of the twists have been brought about elegantly, and there is a sense of growing anticipation as you reach the climax.
The revelation that one of the eight stranded people on the island is U.N. Owen is one of the turning points of the film. There are initially ten people who go there for a vacation, but two are already dead before the others realize this.
The best part is the murderer’s confession, which is when the curtains fall and the mystery unravels, right at the end.
The movie has been directed perfectly, and the special effects are superb, considering that the movie was made in 1945. The movie definitely does justice to the book, as both are simply mind-boggling.
