And Then There Were None
by Agatha Christie

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


10 people are invited on an island called Indian Island either for a vacation or for employment. When they arrived they found out that their host U.N. Owen (which they don't know personally) is not on the island.

Each of the bedroom of the guests has a copy of a nursery rhyme on their walls:

Ten little Indian boys went out to dine;
One choked his little self and then there were nine.
Nine little Indian boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were eight.
Eight little Indian boys traveling in Devon;
One said he'd stay there and then there were seven.
Seven little Indian boys chopping up sticks;
One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.
Six little Indian boys playing with a hive;
A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.
Five little Indian boys going in for law;
One got into Chancery and then there were four.
Four little Indian boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.
Three little Indian boys walking in the zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were two.
Two Little Indian boys sitting in the sun;
One got frizzled up and then there was one.
One little Indian boy left all alone;
He went out and hanged himself and then there were none.

During a large dinner, the guests notice ten little figurines of Indians on the dining room table. Later, while they are having a dinner, a gramophone record is played, informing the ten that all of them are guilty of murder. All of the guests acknowledge their awareness and, in some cases, involvement in the deaths of the persons mentioned, while denying any malice or legal culpability:

-Dr. Edward Armstrong operated and accidentally killed his patient, Louisa Clees, while drunk.

-Emily Brent dismissed her maid Beatrice Taylor after she became pregnant, and the maid consequently committed suicide by drowning herself.

-William Blore committed perjury during the trial of an accused bank robber Stephen Landor, who died in the prison.

-Vera Claythorne allowed Cyril Hamilton, a small boy in her care, to swim out to sea and drown. Cyril was first in line to inherit a vast legacy; the second was Vera's lover.

-Phillip Lombard abandoned a party of twenty-one native retainers to die in the African bush in order to himself survive.

-General John Macarthur deliberately sent his wife's lover and his subordinate, Arthur Richmond, on a suicidal mission during World War I.

-Anthony Marston accidentally ran over and killed two children, John and Lucy Combes, while driving recklessly.

-Thomas and Ethel Rogers let their invalid employer Jennifer Brady die by withholding her medication in order to claim a large inheritance.

-Justice Lawrence Wargrave gave the death penalty to accused murderer Edward Seton despite evidence supporting his innocence.

The guests realize they have all been tricked into coming to the island, but now have no way to get back to the mainland, as the boat which regularly delivers supplies stops arriving. They are then murdered, one by one, with each murder paralleling a verse of the nursery rhyme, and one of the ten soldier figurines being removed after each murder.

WARNING: to those who are interested to read this book... wag nyo muna basahin ung link sa baba... nandyan ung sagot sa who is the real murderer... lol!

The Historian
by Elizabeth Kostova

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


The story was narrated by the daughter of a historian na hindi naman ata nabanggit ang pangalan ng babaing ito.

Anyway... nag-start ang kwento when she discovered an old book na may nakaukit na dragon sa cover nito sa office library ng father nya. and she also saw letters address to "my dear and unfortunate successor"

ng kausapin nya father nya about this he told his daughter about how he got that book and later on found out about his friend Rossi acquiring a similar book like the one he has and his friend's quest to finiding the owner and later on about Vlad the Impaler, also known as Vlad Dracula... but things had gone wrong... there were odd events that were hard to explain like missing clues and people dying. Rossi stops his research. years later it was Paul (the father of the narrator) who had found (or rather it was the book who found him, like Rossi) the book. Rossi gave all his copies of his research to Paul... and now Paul a historian like Rossi is telling his daughter his story and of his friend.



grabe mga kapatid...

i was on the part (this morning) dun sa binabasa ko ung last letter ni Rossi about dun sa time na pina-laboratory test nya ung book, it might help him when it was made etc.

alam nyo ba nagkamalas-malas ako katulad ni Rossi... dumaan ung FX sa ma-trapik na route... tapos bigla na lang namatay ung makina nung sasakyan... ilang beses nag-try ung driver na buhayin ung makina pero ayaw. i closed the book and started praying na sana umandar na ung sasakya... and biglang nabuhay ung makina... affraid

hay grabe talaga... Shocked

love ko ang mga vampire novels pero wag naman ganun lol!

Mahirap mag kumpleto ng JR ward book... I have e-books courtesy of aims and DL's... but I like the book better...

Pasintabi sa mga fans ni Kenyon... mas medyo gusto ko ito compare sa Dark series... Siguro nauna ko lang basahin ang JR ward kesa Kenyon. So usually mas nagugustuhan mo yung first...

may unusual touch kasi si Ward sa mga characters niya... Mas may kaunting realism ang mga decisions at actions ng mga characters niya. Hindi masyadong EMO....

Yung kay Kenyon andami ko nabasa, pero si acheron lang natatandaan ko sa dami nila... kasi from the beginning iyon ang paulit-ulit niyang mine-mention halos kada episode...

LOL

Bad ba ako? scratch scratch

my ebooks lists are more from Harlequin and this time I will try to read yung makakapal naman.

so I've started with this one....

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


A Royal Pain...

The illegitimate daughter of a prince and a notorious courtesan, Lucia has been confined to schools and convents for most of her life. But that hasn't stopped her from causing one scandal after another. Exasperated, her royal father decides that his exquisite hellion of a daughter must be married immediately. And Sir Ian Moore, Britain's most proper diplomat, is the perfect man to choose her a groom.

Diplomacy, not matchmaker, is Ian's forte, but he vows to get Lucia married off as soon as possible so that he may return to his real duties. Yet, despite an abundance of very eager, worthwhile candidates, none is a match for Lucia's spirit and fire. And the more time Ian spends with the infuriating beauty, the more reluctant he is to marry her off. Could it be that he has already found Lucia the perfect husband...and it is Ian himself?


so far enjoy pa naman ang pagbabasa! flower study
