Woman in Cabin 10 (Library)
Woman in Cabin 10 (Library) | Ruth Ware
INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER FROM THE AUTHOR OF IN A DARK, DARK WOOD Featured in TheSkimm An Entertainment Weekly Summer Must List Pick A New York Post Summer Must-Read Pick Included in Summer Book Guides from Bustle, Oprah.com, PureWow, and USA TODAY From New York Times bestselling author of the twisty-mystery (Vulture) novel In a Dark, Dark Wood, comes The Woman in Cabin 10, an equally suspenseful and haunting novel from Ruth Ware this time, set at sea. In this tightly wound, enthralling story reminiscent of Agatha Christie s works, Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. At first, Lo s stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a dark and terrifying nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong With surprising twists, spine-tingling turns, and a setting that proves as uncomfortably claustrophobic as it is eerily beautiful, Ruth Ware offers up another taut and intense read in The Woman in Cabin 10 one that will leave even the most sure-footed reader restlessly uneasy long after the last page is turned."

I think the twist came early in this one, and last little bit on the ending was a little confusing. Worth a read. #46 #2019

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.

jb72 Yeah I wasn‘t thrilled with this book either. I felt like the MC could‘ve and should‘ve known better about many things in the book (like taking meds and drinking). 2w
LogiKitty @jb72 agreed! Which is funny because she rationalizes it and tries to make a good argument for why it's fine for her (since she's done it for so long) 2w

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.

MelissaSue81 yeah.. I had many questions at the end of this one. I liked it.. but I wanted more answers.
4w
Rachel_nyc This one didn‘t quite work for me either. Half the decisions the MC made seemed to be to move the plot along rather than be something the character would actually do. 4w
cathysaid @MelissaSue81 Given the general direction of the book, I think any “answers“ would have been rather implausible anyway. Huge gaps in many areas and exhausting detail in others. 🙄 3w
cathysaid @Rachel_nyc Exactly. I think it could have been interesting but the MC and the other major female player simply annoyed me! 3w
BookNAround I didn‘t like this one. I‘m over the unreliable narrator with a drinking or drug problem which causes others to discount their observations. 3w

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.

marleed That happens to me sometimes too! When I finished Little Fires Everywhere I thought I liked it. The more I thought about the author having a slant toward Maya‘s character the more it bugged me. Now I have to remind myself that I did like it upon finishing! 1mo

This book missed the mark for me. It just didn‘t keep my attention like I had hoped. I almost did not finish but pushed through and was disappointed with the ending as well. This book had a lot of hype and I just didn‘t feel it.

Booktastic Your answer to #1 made me think of how Dax Shepard is always talking about Misophonia on his podcast - often regarding not eating while they record because of people having such negative reactions to hearing that. Luckily unless someone is a real lip smacker or makes sex noises while they eat, lol, I'm good. 1mo

"The Woman in Cabin 10" started strong and was full of suspense but I began to lose interest in the last third as things took as slightly strange turn. It's 3 stars from 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

I wasn't a fan of this one. It started out strong but the pacing of the book seemed off. And I really didn't like the main character.
This was my first book by Ruth Ware. Maybe I'll give her another chance but this isn't a book I would recommend.

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.
