TEN GUESTS OF MR.OWEN

Guest

THIS IS A THRILLER I READ RECENTLY AND IT’S TRULY  AN AMAZING MASTERPIECE OF AGATHA CHRISTIE . NO WONDER SHE IS CALLED THE QUEEN OF THE CRIME.

THE SCENE STARTS WITH   10  DIFFERENT PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT PLACES AND POSITIONS BEEN INVITED BY CERTAIN MR. AND MRS. OWEN TO BE THEIR GUESTS IN THEIR ISLAND CALLED ” THE SOLDIERS ISLAND”.

AFTER REACHING THE ISLAND THEY REALISE THAT THERE IS NO PERSON BY NAME OWEN AND THAT THEY ARE TRAPPED IN A ISLAND WHERE THERE IS NO MEANS OF COMMUNICATION TO THE MAINLAND. THE STORY GETS ITS FIRST TWIST WHEN THERE IS THE RECORDING OF GRAMOPHONE STATING THE CRIMES DONE BY THE TEN PEOPLE AND THEY GOING TO GET TO GET THEIR PUNISHMENT ON THE ISLAND.THEN ONE BY ONE TEN PEOPLE ARE CONDEMNED TO  DEATH .

AGATHA CHRISTIE SUCCEEDED BY KEEPING THE NAME OF THE MURDERER UNDER DISGUISE TILL THE END . THE BEST THING ABOUT THE STORY LINE IS PUNISHING THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE BRUTAL MURDERS BUT WHERE THE LAW CANNOT TOUCH THEM. THE AUTHOR MAINTAINED A GOOD BALANCE WHERE TEN HAVE TO DIE WITHOUT BEING RIDICULOUS OR THE MURDERER BEING OBVIOUS .I CAN SAY THIS IS THE BEST THRILLER I HAVE READ SO FAR . AND THE BOOK IS “AND THEN THERE WERE NONE”
