And Then There Were None Essay

In the novel and then there were none by Agatha Christie I don’t think she favors one social class or another. but think that she is trying to tell people that they should try their best at life and what you do as a person can and will come back to haunt you in your future.

But General MacArthur who was lower class had sent his wife lover on an impossible mission during World War 1 in which the general knew he would not return so he also paid for his deed.

The rich people in the novel like Anthony Marston is poisoned and dies in his sleep somewhat peaceful but not brutal like Vera claythorne because she supposedly hung herself but the judge who is the serial killer killed her and Anthony both.
