  1. U.N Owen is Lawrence Wargrave. I think that his confession seems fitting to the story because he says he had the urge to kill but not innocent people. So he found people who committed crimes that couldn't be touched by law. U.N Owen or Lawrence Wargrave created this plot because he always wants justice for every crime committed. This is supported because in the story it says " from an early age I knew very strongly the lust to kill , but side by side with this went a contradictory trait- a strong sense of justice " . this goes along with the plot because all of the people who were guests on the island committed a crime that could not be touched by the law.

  2. Mr. U.N. Owen is an unknown person who in beginning of the novel sends invitations to ten strangers inviting them to Soldier Island. The reader ultimately finds out Mr. U. N. Owen is Mr. Lawrence Wargrave. Mr. Wargrave is a retired judge who seems to be a leader of sorts throughout the novel until he is "killed" but later confesses to be the murderer in a letter. The murderer's "confession" seemed fitting because the other house guests suspected him of the murders until he was "killed" so they did not suspect him anymore giving him the motive and chance to kill undetected. He did not want to get caught so he left the letter to be discovered at a later time by an unknown person. In my opinion, Mr. U.N Owen created this plot because he was sadistic, murder oriented, and felt justified in executing punishments for non-convicted crimes. In this novel, it stated "from an early age I knew very strongly the lust to kill" and that he then fantasied about murdering without detection. I never saw this plot twist coming.

    2. I agree with Taylor 100%. I didn't suspect this big of a plot twist at the end either. She has very good detail in her response and it's understandable.

    3. I agree with you when you talked about how Wargrave felt the need to bring justice to those people that are out of the reach of the law and should be punished for their crimes. What I don’t agree with is why he wrote the letter. I think he wrote the letter because he wanted to explain the murder that has happened on Soldier Island and he was also guilty of killing someone so he committed suicide by shooting himself in the forehead. I agree with everything else Taylor has said in her response.
