Hello people. How are you doing??? How is life??? I have been reading books a lot as I am super bored at home all alone. I have nothing to do. I just finished the Asylum book in 1 day. Just 24 hours and 350 pages are done. I don’t know what to do at home. I have college starting soon so I guess, I will be busy then but for now, I am free and I am reading a lot of books. So on that note let’s start this review, shall we???
So I read this book for the Omnilegent Bookclub before 2 months. I really loved the book and I always wanted to read Agatha Christie’s books so it was like a happy package for me. I am just glad I tried this book. It makes me wonder how Agatha Christie paved the way for mystery novels written in this century. She taught people the basic rules to writing a mystery book through her writing styles (WOMEN EMPOWERMENT AT ITS PEAK!!!).

The book that topped the international online poll held in Agatha Christie’s 125th birthday year to discover which of her 80 crime books was the world’s favourite.
1939. Europe teeters on the brink of war. Ten strangers are invited to Soldier Island, an isolated rock near the Devon coast. Cut off from the mainland, with their generous hosts Mr and Mrs U.N. Owen mysteriously absent, they are each accused of a terrible crime. When one of the party dies suddenly they realise they may be harbouring a murderer among their number.
The 10 strangers include a reckless playboy, a troubled Harley Street doctor, a formidable judge, an uncouth detective, an unscrupulous mercenary, a God-fearing spinster, two restless servants, a highly decorated general and an anxious secretary. One by one they are picked off. Who will survive? And who is the killer? Copies of an ominous nursery rhyme hang in each room, the murders mimicking the awful fates of its ‘Ten Little Soldier Boys’.
Amazon: 🌟4.5/5 Stars🌟.
Goodreads: 🌟4.3/5 Stars🌟.

I am a crazy mystery and thriller addict and have read a gazillion books but this book was just beyond my imagination. I loved how each of the characters was perfectly described. Although I did get confused about their names and who they were at the start but as I got a hang of the book, I understood everything clearly. The book was clean and it definitely left no clue as to who the killer was and why they were killing people. The kills were done almost perfectly but I couldn’t guess the killer until the end. I did get a bit confused in the ending but still, this book stole my heart. Wonderful novel and definitely a must-read.
So that’s it for today. I hope you loved this review. I will be back soon with one more review and hope you all are safe and sound. Take care and see you soon, until then…
