Ten Little Indians

 Ten Little Indians
Ten Little Indians going out to dine;
One went and choked his little self and then there were nine.
Nine Little Indian Boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were eight.
Eight Little Indian Boys traveling to Devon;
One got left behind and then there were seven.
Seven Little Indian boys playing with a hive;
A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.
Five Little Indian boys going in for law;
One got in chancery and then there were four.
Four Little Indian boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.
Three Little Indian boys walking to the zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were two.
Two Little Indian boys playing with a gun;
One shot the other and then there was one.
One little Indian boy left all alone;
He went and hanged himself
…and then there were none.

So Im in Utah now, just to get that out of the way! While driving to Utah (among going through 20 qts of oil, aka car problems) I listened to a book on tape.....yes on tape, luckily my car is old enough to have a tape player. I went to the library and browsed the book on tape section because its a long drive and I might as well do something other than look like a fool singing in my car for 10 hours! I found a Jodi Picoult book who I love (she wrote My Sisters Keeper, but I love Harvesting the Heart way more!), and a Nicholas Sparks book (you all should know him, he wrote The Notebook, Dear John, and The Last Song among others). So I was about to go check out because I was content with what I had found, I saw And Then There Were None. I read this book in 7th grade and it was the first book that I actually read the whole thing with out using spark notes haha! I thoroughly enjoyed it, that is the book that got be into reading. I never was much of a reader before. So when I saw it I knew I had to get it.
So I listened to the whole book (though I definitely did some crazy singing in my car also)! I love it, it is now my ALL TIME favorite book. I forgot how good it is. Even though I knew how it ultimately ended, there were still little (but very important) details I had forgotten.
The short synopsis is a group of ten people are invited to an island, no one knows each other nor does anyone really know who invited them. Then someone dies and the story just gets better from there.
There is a movie called Ten Little Indians, but does not do the book justice by any means. Mostly because the movie ends way differently and I think the ending is what makes the book so great. Oh did I mention Agatha Christie wrote it? Ill have to read some more of her murder mysteries!
I totally recommend this book, from what I remember its a decently easy read! So read it/listen to it. Funny thing is ive been planning on writing a blog about it ever since the 3rd chapter of the book, and one of my best friends just posted about one of her new favorite books. So now I feel like im copying her/we're starting a new trend haha! You all should now blog about your favorite book or one youve read recently. Im totally going to read the book she recommended it sounds intense!

  1. You should rent the movie too! It's great. It does wander from the book a bit, but it's good in its own rite.
