I think I had a heart attack.
Christie really amped up the suspense in this book. From the title of the book, you know what's going to happen. And yet, a small part of me hoped
it wouldn't happen like in the nursery rhyme, Ten Little Indians
. It's like watching a slasher movie, or Sunshine
, where you know everybody's going to die, but you still keep on watching to see what happened. I had palpitations. Ugh, why do I do this to myself? Only for Agatha Christie, truly.
I really liked the suspense in this book, for a person who doesn't like suspense thrillers. But since I like me my twisty endings, I couldn't help but compare the ending to Cards on the Table
, which is the best roller-coaster ride of an ending by far, for me. (But then, I have a ton of A.C. to read yet).
