30 Day Book Challenge (Day 13) - Your Favorite Author

And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie

  Agatha Christie Portrait

 

So, like everyone doing this challenge, I'm finding it awfully hard to reduce this to just one author.  I've chosen Agatha Christie.  I'm featuring a book each day, and I don't want to duplicate any this month, so I'm featuring one of my two favorite Christies, And Then There Were None (you'll see the other one later this month).  

 

Agatha Christie's book are like a soft and comfortable pair of pajamas.  I can slide into one any time and the reading is soothing and delightful.  I get sucked in right away, and I always enjoy the characters and scenery.  I'm so grateful she wrote so many, I don't know what I'll do when I've read her entire oeuvre.  

 

And Then There Were None is really a delight of rising suspense, spooky atmosphere, and surprise endings.
