User reviews about this book
First off, we have to acknowledge the fact that this script was, in fact written long ago, and later recorded to books. This may be why it is confusing to the current generation, and it may have typos because, bear n mind, it had to be modified in order to suit us, and there is a very high possibility that the producers made the typo, not the author. I am dissatisfied with the ending, but then again, it is the own fault of the producers. I still am a huge fan of this book. Remember, beyond typos, grammatical errors, lack of detail and confusing entries, a mystery is hiding in the ink.
The story is gripping and clever, and the pacing is great as well. It had me so invested I finished it in one sitting. It was a bit hard to remember the characters' names at first, as there are 10, but they all become impressionable in next to no time. I was as confused as the characters in the story, which made it all the more satisfying to get to the end.
A review saying that this is an incomplete copy had me hesitant to purchase it, but all chapters and epilogues are present as of June 2020.
Beware: This version is incomplete!
I finished the story feeling confused and unsatisfied (it was great up until the ending in this version). I looked up the ending online for an explanation and it turns out that a very important part of the epilogue was missing from this version, that's why the ending didn't make sense to me. This copy ruined an otherwise gripping and page turning experience.
By Kayci Kim
Book was great, but the ending was a little disappointing. The buildup to the conclusion was riveting, but anticlimactic at the end.
It’s easy read and a definite page-turner. If you’re into detective/murder mysteries, then this book is one to try.
if you knew you didnt
The book was hard to not read, I finished it in 2 days. Amazing by one of my favorite authors. The ending rewards you even more.
By Riley Welker
There’s three mystery writers I recommend to everyone:
1. Agatha Christie
2. Arthur Conan Doyle
3. Edgar Allan Poe
This is my favorite Agatha Christie. It’s so intelligently written. A true page-turner.
Decent storyline but poor writing
By Pug Mama
I enjoyed the storyline and mystery of the book. Unfortunately the writing style was choppy and lacked imagery. A different author could have made this book come alive.
Old time masterpiece
Clever and slowly evolving mysterious happenings from the very first chapter. I read lots of new authors who are thoroughly enjoyable. Then, every once in a while, I remind myself to read a tried and true writing master like Agatha Christie. She rarely fails to keep the reader on the edge of excitement. AND THEN THEIR WERE NONE!
nice plot and very shocking ending, the backstory is well incorporated too
