I have read this novel with two sets of honors 8th graders, and it was a hit both times. For many of my students, this book was the favorite of the year, and for some, it became their favorite book of all time! The most exciting part about reading this novel with your class is the moment when one of your students realizes that a favorite movie or tv show that they have seen is based on or inspired by this classic novel of Agatha Christie’s. When my students were reading this novel last year, one student burst out with “wait! There is a psych episode about this story!” And as it sunk in, the classroom became abuzz with “oh yeah! And there’s a movie on Netflix that’s kinda like this, too!” Already a popular book with my students, And Then There Were None became an obsession as soon as my students realized the relevance of the story and the impact that this novel has had on the media and pop culture of today!
Enjoy watching your students read this thrilling novel as they experience the oh-so-addicting horror and suspense of this 75 year old classic as if it was written in the current year!
