Film of the month: And then there were none (by Agatha Christie)

Hello, nice to see you!
I’m sorry it’s not literally a “film” but TV series again. However I watched 3 episodes (1 hour each) with no breaks, so it was kind of the “film show” for me 😀 There is nothing better in the cosy evening than a blanket, your dog next to you, a hot cup of tea, and a good crime:)  And then there were none was based on one of the best and the most popular stories by Agatha Christie.
I’m a great fan of her books, despite the fact it’s not the most ambitious type of literature. They are relaxing me, I just can’t help it.  I’ve read about 36 of Christie’s novels so far and I had only guessed few times who the murderer was. No, it’s not a great success. Well, I don’t really try to play detective while reading because I love to be surprised by the Master of Crime. Or maybe it’s an excuse and I’m just not clever enough! 😀
And then there were none also known as Ten Little Indians or Ten Little Soldier Boys was my first Agatha Christie book. I had read it ages ago and I fell in love with the mysterious mood that is present in her novels. I know they are a little bit old-fashioned, but it doesn’t really bother me.

Can you believe that I missed And then there were none on TV? I didn’t even know it’s been released!  And I’ll be honest with you: I haven’t seen something so good for a very long time.
What  I really loved about the serial were: great music, amazing actors and nice costumes. But there was something even more important for me: the film is faithfully reflecting the book, on the contrary to the previous adaptations!
The atmosphere of the mystery starts from the beginning. 10 people (who apparently have nothing in common, but is true?), isolated island, nursery rhyme, murders, and a perfect, oneiric mood.
In my opinion, that was the best adaptation of any book by Agatha Christie. Well done BBC! And Aidan Turner even in Poldark hasn’t looked so sexy.

    I’ll have to look into this because I actually like mysteries but have somehow managed to never read Agatha Christie. My teen loves mysteries too though, so now I’m wondering – what’s the age range on these books? Are they kid-appropriate, or have they got lots of language and romance/sexual stuff in them?

    I’ve never heard of this show before. I do like shows that take you back in time though. I would love to see an episode and check if it’s something I would like.

    This sounds like a kind of book I would love to read! I am now interested in finding that book before watching the series 🙂
