And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie 4.5 stars

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).
