    Do you know anything about Jack and Jill? Of course you know. Both the boys meet tragedy falling down the hill. Most of us don't even empasize on its meaning, we just enjoy the rhyme. It's fun reciting it. And afterall that's what nursery rhymes are meant for.

    But can a nursery rhyme be horrible? Could it take a different path, a serious path? If you say no, then I recommend you to read Agatha Christie's ‘And then There Were None’. Ten strangers are invited to an island. But when they reach there, they find out that the host himself is absent. And the only sign of him, they find, is a record of murders, each of the ten are accused to have committed. The matter heats up when deaths start to occus one by one. Having no escape, they get stuck. Will anyone be able to escape? And moreover, who is behind all this?

    Agatha Christie has framed this mystery cum thriller novel in such a way that not only those ten people but the reader too gets trapped. She is an expert of her genre. The plot is tricky and amazing.

    What I liked the most is the different shades of death on each character, the attitude they possess towards their death. Be it Blore, overconfident of escaping alive, Miss Brent faithful to God believing she will be saved, Vera Claythorne, too afraid of dying or Maccarthur who submitted too early. We are very protective towards our life and don't want that complete shut down. We fear. We fear death even more than committing crime. And many of us could perform it if our lives would be at stake. When it comes to our sins, some acknowledge, some reject. But does it matter? Does it saves us? Does it refuse us being the cause of a crime. Read to know what the cause did to the ten people and most importantly what is the cause?
