My mother said that when she read it in school that was the title it was printed dz. Anyone know why they changed it? Azur The original title was actually “Ten little niggers”.
Since …more The original title was actually “Ten little niggers”. Since this is pretty offensive it was changed to “Ten little Indians”. This was deemed offensive too, so today they use the last line of the children’s rhyme as title and the little figures were changed to soldiers.
Information from my copy of the book. I have two versions of this book. One is the English version with the little soldiers. The other one is a German translation of the original version with the N word and a ton of apologies in the preface but also with the last line as title.

Before I begin I would like to apologise for my use of the N word in this review. It is necessary, I promise. When it came to the US version in the 40’s someone decided that ‘Ten Little Niggers’ is not the most marketable title for a book so they changed it to ‘Ten Little Indians’ as it was still ok to call Native Americans Indians then.
Only years after someone decided that neither ‘Niggers’, nor ‘Indians’ Before I begin I would like to apologise for my use of the N word in this review. Only years after someone decided that neither ‘Niggers’, nor ‘Indians’ is a fortunate choice of words for the title so it was changed to ‘And Then There Were None’ – the last line of the nursery rhyme which in this new version was called ‘Ten Boy Soldiers’.
This is the version that I read and I must say I am glad. I think I would be rather uncomfortable reading something called ‘The Little Niggers’, which takes place on ‘Nigger Island’ how did Christie want to pull this off?
The premise, I am sure you know, is this: One of them is a murderer and people keep dying as in the nursery rhyme. Every person on the island has a secret and is guilty of a murder. It’s the kind of murder where law is helpless. Nothing can be proven. This is why they found themselves on that island, at the mercy of a prototype ‘Jigsaw’ madman who decided justice must be done.
The premise requires the structure of the novel to be very organised and clean cut. I felt that it was only right for me to approach the reading of it in an equally disciplined way. I took five sheets of papers and divide each in half, thus ending up with ten cards, one for each character. And I continued to dilligently fill them out with all the details I learnt about the characters until about halfway through the book when I became too engrossed, frightened and nervous.
I already had an inkling as to who the murderer was and was petrified I would be murdered in my sleep as well. The situation was very serious and I had to invite all my teddy bears back to my bed, so they could protect me. I grew to like two of the characters – the sentiment, I think, I shared with Christie as she liked them so, she killed them last.
This was my second Christie, and the first proper one. The first one I read was a bit of a mishap spy novel, so Christie’s brilliance wasn’t as apparent as it was in ‘And Then There Were None’.
Now that I’ve read a couple more Christie’s books I realise that random casual racism and antisemitism was very much her trademark. It’s almost amazing she could sneak racism into books that have no black characters at all. Really off-putting and uncomfortable. View all 68 comments.

At least that’s what the mastermind behind it all believes. But the question is – who cqso the right to decide what justice is? And who is to decide what punishment serves the crime? And is perceived justice at all costs the ultimate goal, or is it the frequently pointless work of a maniac?

I think the story of this book the one that may win the contest for the most offensive original title, after all is familiar to most readers. It is a lovely and fascinating idea.
Ten people are lured onto a remote island under false pretenses just to realize that they are all about to be negronhos by death for the ‘crimes’ that they have committed in the past and have gotten away with. Killed in a manner predicted by a silly yet ominous children’s poem with the conclusion of ” What’s more, they come to realize that the mastermind – or maniac?

It’s an enjoyable read to say the least. But what made me unsettled both of the times I read it was the nagging question of justice, as I mentioned above. Yes, on one hand, it’s almost poetic justice to punish the criminals who thought they got away with it.
On the other hand, is eye-for-an-eye the best way to get even? And who’s to judge, anyway? Who is either conceited enough or deranged enough to assume that he has the right and the moral authority to determine guilt and the extent of punishment just like that?
And is arbitrarily and single-handedly determining their guilt and doling out punishments not just as much or even much worse or a crime than they have committed? Speaking of guilt – this novel has quite a bit to say on this subject. You see, many of the characters have already been judged and condemned by their own selves.
