    “And Then There Were None” Vs. “Ten Little Indians” The movie Ten Little Indians is based on the novel And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. However, there is a great range of differences between the two. In fact, very few things from the book were kept in the movie. From the names of characters to the end of the murder mystery story, many things were changed. In both the novel and the movie, ten guests are invited to a secluded house by a mysterious Mr. U. N. Owen. Between the book and the movie, however, the names, ages, and backstories of certain characters are changed. In the book, Vera Claythorne is a governess who lets a boy drown, but in the movie she is changed to Ann Clyde, who kills her sister’s fiance, or covers for her sister who killed her fiance. The book character Philip Lombard allows twenty natives to die, while his alternate movie version Hugh Lombard isn’t actually Hugh Lombard at all. He is Charles Morley. The book character John Wargrave was changed to Arthur Cannon in the movie. In the book, Emily Brent refuses to care for a pregnant girl,…

    At the beginning 8 wrongdoers were each given letters from supposedly different people, when in a twist of dramatic irony, it is known that all of these letters came from the same person; the “Unknown” person who creates the entire mystery to this story. In reality, there were 10 people condemned to their fate, because a couple had served as attendants to the 8 guests given the letters to arrive on Indian Island. The couple along with the other 8 guests had directly or inadvertently led to the…

    In Alexie Sherman’s book “Ten Little Indians”, each short story was about multiple sides of living here in America through the eyes of Indian Americans. There were multiple characters within this book that had different lives and scenarios but they all had some correlation to the main point of this book which was to show the struggles, pain, and heartbreak that happens in each of their stories. Two characters that I was intrigued by were in the first two stories in the book. Corliss is a…

    comes to an end with a picture of Columbus lying on his deathbed, sick, and surrounded by friends, family, and priests. This ending makes readers sympathize for Columbus. It is sad and emotional to see a man being depicted as a national hero to die. The way Zinn ends his first chapter is also in a benevolent way, but with a dark undertone. Zinn discusses how Indian society worked and interacted with each other before the introduction of Europeans. Zinn tells how the Indian people were peaceful…

No one was prepared for the Old diseases that the Europeans brought with them. Disease swept across the continent in the years of European settlement, paving the way for the European dream of controlling the…

    This picture of the Indians presents one aspect of their culture in which they might recognize themselves. This is a way of shaping identity or reputation, a good way but there is also a bad way. This happens when Indians confess that: “We didn’t begin that way. We haven’t always been entertainment” but due to the lies and deceit and their effects on the Indian people “we ceased being people and somehow became performers in an Aboriginal minstrel show for whites in North America” (King 68). In…
