    There is scarcely any comfort to be found in this book, only an ancient, arcane horror The story is a vast underwater cavern, where nothing flows and nothing ebbs and all is as dark and still as the grave Even my most harrowing nightmares would have never conjured such a soul fearing tale And Then There Were None was uncomfortable as it lodged itself in the darkest corner of my mind The questions it asks and the implications it conceals are still twining up my legs like a barbed vine I like There is scarcely any comfort to be found in this book, only an ancient, arcane horror The story is a vast underwater cavern, where nothing flows and nothing ebbs and all is as dark and still as the grave Even my most harrowing nightmares would have never conjured such a soul fearing tale And Then There Were None was uncomfortable as it lodged itself in the darkest corner of my mind The questions it asks and the implications it conceals are still twining up my legs like a barbed vine I liked this book but it honestly isn t an experience I m keen on revisiting So, what s this book about In And Then There Were None s nightmarish tableau, ten people are summoned as house guests to a remote island by a Mr and Mrs U.N Owe...
