We will be discussing And then there were none by Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie

Dame Agatha Christie, a British novelist, short story writer, suffered from dyslexia in her childhood. She is widely remembered for her famous 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, she is the best-selling novelist of all time with 4 billion copies sold all over the word.

She herself admitted, “I, myself, was always recognized . . . as the “slow one” in the family. It was quite true, and I knew it and accepted it. Writing and spelling were always terribly difficult for me. My letters were without originality. I was . . . an extraordinarily bad speller and have remained so until this day.”
Today she is known as the most successful mystery writer of all time.
