The experience of reading this book is akin to walking through a nightmare; I could not orient myself, did not know north from south. My heart was a fistful of thunder, my mind a whirl pool of possibilities—each more terrible than the last.
The not knowing was like a splinter in my mind. And as I was tracing the implications of every new revelation, my small, sickly faith was eroding.
And Then There Were None is not a light read—it is, in fact, unrelentingly harrowing. The hermetic, creepy atmosphere of Soldier Island makes a thriving black petri dish of foreboding and distortion.
And as each of the characters' haunting pasts come to light and as their secrets swell to bursting, the book becomes more and more page-turning. But what appears to be a thriller is something far more perilous. Christie imbues the story with a well-observed psychological depth that holds its own fascination. The surface, of course, is arresting, but the harder you think the further you go, and it keeps on getting more productive. The mind is an imperfect engine that does what it will with the information it receives.
