Adaptation #79: And Then There Were No More Biscuits

header079This time around, the Adaptation girls discuss Agatha Christie’s novel And Then There Were None in which ten people are lured to an island and then killed off one by one. There’s also a creepy nursery rhyme with a racist history and some rather disturbing character backstories. The hosts talk about theories they had while reading, alternate endings that could have been and the unexpected and infuriating ending.

EDIT: You can now listen to our episode on the film Sabotage, which was loosely based on this book.
