We need to choose who we can confide andbelieve in. If the ten people on the island want to stay alive, they need to be awareof those who are truly loyal, but they need to choose wisely, for one out of the tenis a murderer. Everyone in the house has their suspicions. ?One of us.
. . one of us. . . one of us.
Three words, endlessly repeated, diningthemselves hour after hour into receptive brains. ? (chapter 13, page 239)No matter what the circumstances are, they remain immutable about not trustingeach other. Having no trust makes all of them a nervous wreck, making each ofthem more susceptible of being the next victim of murder. Having no trust onlydings us a deeper hole to the inevitable, and when we trust the wrong person, theinevitable happens sooner than expected.
Deceit, unfortunately, is also a part of life. Deceit inside And Then thereWere None, however, is a part of death. Lombard and Vera face the facts whenthey appear to be the last ones alive on the island. ?So we know where we are don’t we? . . .
This is the end. ? (chapter 16, page 297 ;298)Instead of being the nice man he seemed to be, he turned out to be a miscreant. Lombard fools a lot of people with his act of being paranoid of having the killerlooking over his shoulder. It is his self that he needs to guard, and he is not doinga good job of that, because Vera kills him instead. Death comes about in many ways. Murder is one of them.
This immoralityis the basis of the whole entire book. One by one, each one of the ten people dieby someone else’s immoral actions. Even at the end of the book when Vera shootsLumbard, she had committed a brutal crime. Yes, she was defending herself, butshe still chooses to use her hands to take someone else’s life. Immorality plaguessociety today deeply.
We have twisted morals so much that the may think themost wrong action is OK. And Then There Were None is a book that applies lives ways in forms thatcome to us unconsciously. Trust is something that is so valuable to life, that if wedon’t have it, we can fail in something that matters greatly to us. Deceit andimmorality are part of lives inauspicious human nature. These words intertwineeach chapter just as they intertwine some of our own lives.
We need to pick andchoose which ones we want to eliminate.Bibliographyand then there were none
