Publisher's Summary

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of a classic Agatha Christie mystery, starring Lyndsey Marshal, Geoffrey Whitehead, and John Rowe.

Ten guests travel to an island at the invitation of someone named U. N. Owen. All are strangers, but they have two things in common: they have all been responsible for someone's death, and none will leave the island alive. Over the next two days and nights, each of the guests is killed off in a different manner in keeping with the nursery rhyme, 'Ten Little Soldier Boys'. As they are picked off one by one, who could possibly be responsible?

The killers are forced to turn detective so they can find the unknown murderer, but one by one they become victims.

Billed as 'the famous detective story without a detective', And Then There Were None is one of Agatha Christie's darkest and most enduring tales.

Loved this book Version!

I have never been a book reading person because I’m quite slow at reading, but I absolutely loved this book because I love everything murder mystery related!!! I really enjoyed the dramatised part of it too, the acting was great and I could really picture it all in my head. My favourite part was that I could listen to it while in my car and feel like I’m watching a TV show! Highly recommend :)

They Re-wrote the book!

I understand that some abridgement was to be expected in the interest of saving time, but to completely re-write important sections of the book? If I had wanted to purchase a different story, I wouldn't have purchased this one. Reader beware, some liberties have been taken which may or may not be appreciated.
I own the unabridged narration of this story, and thought that a dramatized version would be nice, but this is a totally different story altogether. Ten Little Soldiers? They were Indians, but I guess political correctness got in the way. And there was no conversation between Vera and the Judge at the end of the book. There are other references to the Judge wondering if there is a God. I don't recall seeing that in the book, so that must be part of someone's agenda. And the same company has released a ton of these Agatha Christie books! Shame on the publisher, and shame on Audible for putting this "book" out. If I could get my money back, I would. With interest. I only gave it one star because Audible made me. With interest, Audible!

didn't realize it was so short.

used a credit and instead of the book, it's a radio adaptation and was over in one or two days driving to work. it's my own fault, but would have preferred the full version. I expect books to be at least 4+ hours. was rather shocked when this was over

One Little Soldier...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would. It was an enjoyable book and a nice piece of pure Christie escapism.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I rather liked Vera, perhaps because the actress who performed her was so skilled.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

This is yet another fine radio adaptation with a full cast, like an old-time radio show.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Moved, no, but I loved the end.

And Then There Were None

This is a dramatisation of Agatha Christie's novel, and it's very effective and enjoyable. The characters are well portrayed by the actors and it's easy to tell all of them apart. The incidental music and background effects (seagulls, the sea) add to the tension and build up the suspense. The audio creates a claustrophobic atmosphere that really complements the story.

Her masterpiece, too short

As this is well documented as one of AC’s masterpieces, I would have expected a longer, more drawn out play to echo its importance. It was very well done but I would have hoped for more development and felt the ‘fear factor’ never arrived as it did so atmospherically in the book.

Wonderful adaptation

Like so many of us, I have read the book and watched the film and Television adaptations. I confess to being slightly underwhelmed by them all. This audio version, however, brings the whole story to life, and takes it to a much higher level. The voices are easy to distinguish, the acting is excellent, and the background sound effects are well chosen and add depth to the drama. Highly highly recommended

Brilliant production of Agathas best.

Fantastic performance of this great story- perfect for car drives etc and easy to follow. Fast development of plot etc as radio play, but but loses none of the tension and drama.
Enjoy Dame Agathas finest work !

Glorious! I

An unusual Christie in that it features none of her usual sleuths. Neverless, the story grips from the outset and never lets up, as each character is picked off one by one.... The dramatisation is a another tour-de-force by the BBC. Wonderfully atmospheric, the story is skilfully abridged and adapted. Highly recommended.
