read count: 7 (at least!)
This was the first Agatha Christie book that I ever read. I believe that it was in junior high, probably grade 8, and it opened my eyes to an entirely new world when it came to books. Already a voracious reader, I now had a focus for my instincts to lose myself in a book as well as to build my collection. Yipes!
This is not, by any means, a happy story, but it is wonderfully done and I was completely and totally baffled as to just who was killing all the members of the *party* on Indian Island.
Eerie, spooky and definitely an intellectual thriller... wow!
I really don't know how many times I've read it since, but I can still name characters, the order of the deaths, the hows-and-wherefores... and it's been over 15 years since I last immersed myself.
What more can you say about a book?
