The book «And Then There Were None» is one of the most popular bestsellers in the world. The author of the book is Agatha Christie. Now, almost ten strangers to each other people are on the island, without communication with the outside world. And the question is not who will die first, and who is the killer?
In my opinion something more terrible than this nursery rhyme, it is difficult to find. The book “And Then There Were None” written many reviews. Most of the reviews contain almost a brief retelling of the book.
What can we add to these reviews about the book “And Then There Were None” by Agatha Christie. This is the perfect detective. After reading I found that found a weak spot (not going to disclose what!). But back to the text, I was convinced that was not right, and Agatha Christie have created a text in which there is no defect and no superfluous words. The writing style is curious, and lighter than Dickens or Bronte, but honed and not clogged with unnecessary words, in contrast to modern texts. No endless adjectives and lengthy descriptions. Reading Agatha Christie was a pleasure! After reading I watched the new adaptation of BBC three series, and it gives the book for two reasons.
Sharp-eyed readers can see in the foreground of Tywin Lannister. In the show, added sex and drugs, which in the original version there. I think Christie would not have approved such an option. It looks vulgar. In the book all are reserved and go in costume, everyone says that befits the status and the situation, in short, support the tradition. And in the film adaptation of the first half of heroes is rude to the other half.
Also in the book felt the author’s desire to catch up with fear, while giving a perfectly logical explanation in the end (if the stupid reader did not know who the killer is (I guessed)). In the series there are certain inexplicable phenomena, in particular towards the end of the 3-series. The writers they have nothing to clarify and I was disappointed in the film adaptation. It’s like that take a detective to explain Holmes and hound of the Baskervilles not like in the book, and the appearance of the Cerberus in Albion. As always, the book is better than the movie.
