I liked this one so much better than In A Dark, Dark Wood. I would give it like 4.5 stars, it kept me guessing what was going on but then I felt the ending was very rushed.
It wasn't half bad, and I hadn't expected the twist when it came, but it certainly wasn't as “thriller“ as I had expected. I found Lo to not be a very enjoyable/likeable character. There was SUCH a heavy focus on her diagnosis and the believablility of her story because of her mental health condition that it drove me nuts. I feel like the author kind of used it as a crutch. And overall, she was a bit too nosy for my taste. Overall, decent, though.
This was such a great book. My first read by Ruth Ware and now I want to read all her books. I would highly recommend this book especially if you like thrillers. She is an excellent writer who makes sure that you will continue to question what you know or what you think you know until the final page.
Meh. I really wanted to like it but it just never came together for me. A journalist invited on a maiden voyage of a cruise ship thinks she sees a woman killed. Her pursuit of the truth creates enemies and more questions than answers. Seemed overwrought...but that could have been the narrator. On the line between a pick and so-so, but since I think my opinion could have been different if I read in print, I'm giving a pick.
I was definitely entertained, but the more I think about the plot, the more problems I have with it. It started to lose me towards the end.
1. I hate hearing people eat in any way.
2. I love to travel so anyone who wants to take me on a vacation for my birthday please let me know 🤣🤣🤣🤣
3. I‘m a therapist.....so success is measured by happiness to me. If you are happy then you have achieved success ♥️
I‘m new here so I‘m going to tag a couple people who I know are new like me!

In this thriller, the MC has a #WindowSeat to what she thinks is foul play - she witnesses a woman fall overboard. Yet, the MC is very unreliable, and no one believes her story. Is she telling the truth?
This has received mixed ratings on Litsy. I actually liked this one. The opening scene had my heart pumping, and I tend to gravitate toward unconventional main characters. #LilithJuly
That moment when you buy a book by its cover and it turned out to be dissapointing. The way the author writes is not that bad but...lord, does she have misconceptions. About fat people, about having a certain age. And she is so anxious and self-centred. Like the Earth spins around her. She seems to have no hobbies, because she observers everything. Every fucking detail.
And sometimes she is shameless. Like kissing a man's pubes. Cmmon.
All I can say is WOW. I personally don‘t believe Ware introduced this book properly as the beginning was horribly confusing. However after about 100 pages or so I was HOOKED. Wares plot reminded me of Agatha Christie‘s and I truly never saw the ending coming
This book was just okay for me. I started getting really frustrated with her situation and I was just ready for it to be resolved. I did really like the ending. After reading this and "In a Dark, Dark Wood" it's obvious that Ruth Ware followed a similar story arc. I wouldn't recommend to a friend or family member, but it wasn't a terrible read. Once the story picked up, I finished it in 3 days. But the first 150 pages really dragged.
I‘m on chapter 9 and not really feeling it. Just finished the Lying Game and it was really great. I had high hopes for this...hopefully it gets better!!!
Was hoping to read In a Dark, Dark Wood but my library didn't have it. This book, by the same author, still caught my eye. I'm diving right in!
A nasty bout of insomnia last night gave me a chance to finish book 48 for the year! According to my "system," I should read a non-fiction selection next, but I'm really in the mood for a thriller, so my system can wait for this one that has been lingering in my TBR for quite a while.
One of these books is not like the others 😂😂
At our local community theater, this volunteer opted to not watch the show for free & read her book instead.
Would you do the same?
