And Then There Were None is a mystery novel by English writer Agatha Christie, her best selling novel and described by her as the most difficult of her books to write. It was first published in the United Kingdom on 6 November 1939, as Ten Little N*****s, after the British blackface song, which serves as a major plot point.
The US edition was released in January 1940 with the title And Then There Were None, which is taken from the last five words of the song. All successive American reprints and adaptations use that title, except for the Pocket Books paperbacks published between 1964 and 1986, which appeared under the title Ten Little Indians.
The book is the world's best-selling mystery, and with over 100 million copies sold is one of the best-selling books of all time. Publications International lists the novel as the sixth best-selling title.
The worst edition ever of this work: full of spelling/mechanical errors.
Too many typos
I realize it’s a cheaply priced edition, but the spelling errors, typos, grammar & punctuation issues are seriously annoying! Did no one bother to edit this? Even a spellcheck program would have caught most of these. I’d spend more money to get a better edition if I were you. 🤦🏻♀️
If you’re a stickler for grammar this is not for you
The errors here are atrocious. It is quite annoying but not so much that the story gets lost in it, you can still follow. So for .99 it’s fine. You just get what you pay for.
