leave this island So creepy RTC Before I begin I would like to apologise for my use of the N word in this Damned (Witch Hunt review It is necessary I promiseThis book was originally published in UK under a charming title of Ten Little Niggers 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 still a highly uestionable choice 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 nurseryhyme which in this new version was called Ten Boy Soldiers I m glad this is version we get to The Bluebird Bet (Welcome to Tall Pines read now as it would make for an
