I've never been a huge Agatha Christie fan, but I'd always liked her books, most of the time i only read her Poirot novels. Hercule Poirot is the greatest fictional detective everafter Sherlock Holmes, whose character isunparalleled. But this book does not feature Poirot, which is why I wasn't too enthusiastic for it, but after afriend of mine, Sundaram suggested it with a brief outlook of the plot i decided to give it a shot rightaway. As it turned out, this book is now on the list of my all-time favouritemysteries!

I suppose the plot is what draws most people to this book. There never has been a more elaborate mystery in the annals of fiction. Ten people gather on an island, supposedly invited by a host who isn't present. We learn quite quickly that all the people are murderers -- murderers that the law can't touch. And the mysterious host who calls himself U. N. Owen ('unknown') plans to execute his guests.

The murders take place in accordance with a little nursery rhyme that is framed in each guest's room. And as people begin to die one by one, and an extensive search reveals that there's no one else on the island, it soon becomes clear that U. N. Owen is someone among the original party. The book soon turns into a psychological thriller as each guest becomes paranoid and suspicious of the others.

The last few chapters are nerve-wrecking and the Epilogue is shocking. Some of the contexts of the book are really nerve recking and worth the horror. "Definitely worth reading" is a huge understatement. Go read it!

"When the sea goes down, there will come from the mainland boats and men. And they will find ten dead bodies and an unsolved problem on Indian Island."
