Agatha Christie’s: And Then There Were None

This is one of my fav novel. Untuk terbitan dalam Bahasa Indonesia, judulnya adalah “10 Anak Negro”. Berkisah tentang delapan orang dari berbagai sastra sosial yang diundang ke sebuah pulau oleh seseorang yang bernama U. N. Owen. Pulau itu disebut dengan Pulau Negro lantaran bentuknya menyerupai kepala anak negro.

Dua orang pelayan mengatakan pada kedelapan tamu bahwa tuan rumah sedang tidak ada di tempat. Kemudian terjadi serangkaian pembunuhan di pulau tersebut. Dan? Kesepuluh orang itu mati!

Pembunuhan terjadi berdasarkan isi pantun berjudul “Sepuluh Anak Negro” -Ten Little Niggers- yang digantung pada dinding penginapan di pulau itu. I like this story because I can’t guess the ending! Hanya ada 10 orang di satu pulau terpencil dan semuanya mati? Siapa pelakunya?

Clue: there’s no 11th person..😀

This is the nursery rhyme, Ten Little Niggers:

Ten little niggers went out to dine;
One choked his little self and then there were nine.

Nine little niggers sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were eight.

Eight little niggers traveling in Devon;
One said he’d stay there and then there were seven.

Seven little niggers chopping up sticks;
One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.

Six little niggers playing with a hive;
A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.

Five little niggers going in for law;
One got into Chancery and then there were four.

Four little niggers going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.

Three little niggers walking in the zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were two.

Two little niggers sitting in the sun;
One got frizzled up and then there was one.

One little nigger left all alone;
He went out and hanged himself and then there were none.

    I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
