The Woman in Cabin 10
The Woman in Cabin 10 | Ruth Ware
This was meant to be the perfect trip. The Northern Lights. A luxury press launch on a boutique cruise ship. A chance for travel journalist Lo Blackwood to recover from a traumatic break-in that has left her on the verge of collapse, and to work out what she wants from her relationship. Except things dont go as planned. Woken in the night by screams, Lo rushes to her window to see a body thrown overboard from the next door cabin. But the records show that no-one ever checked into that cabin, and no passengers are missing from the boat. Exhausted, emotional and increasingly desperate, Lo has to face the fact that her sleep problems might be driving her mad or she is trapped on a boat with a murderer and she is the sole witness...

This was frankly better than I expected. For one thing, I always thought it was like a cabin in the woods 😂😂😂😂

My only gripe, because I don't drink, is that I'm so sick of the narrators of thrillers drinking constantly and the whole book taking place in an alcoholic haze.

I can't lie to myself anymore. I have a cold 😭

My children are with their dad so it's me and these babies and bed, I guess. I'm trying Cabin 10 after reading about the millionth review of it on Litsy this morning - I really hope I like it!

It‘s a shame because this book was something I looked forward to reading. However, the book ran far too heavily into the realm of unbelievable and I felt myself disconnect from it. It had many holes and sadly just left me unsatisfied. I would love to give a Ruth Ware book another chance and hope to feel differently!

⭐️⭐️ This variation on a locked room mystery, and its unreliable narrator, Lo, didn‘t do it for me. I didn‘t care about her, the “woman,” or how the story unfolded. The requisite twist was okay, but the whole story felt totally pointless. I just can‘t suspend that much logic. My first, and last, Ruth Ware. #bookclub

I read one book previously by this author and wasn‘t in love with her writing but decided to give her another shot. I was much happier with this book compared to the last so I‘ll probably give more of her books a try. I actually really enjoyed this suspenseful thriller. The “who did it” really shocked me but made perfect sense and I really enjoyed the ending. Well written and methodical. This book will remain in my little library. 📚

I absolutely snarfed this book.

The first half was perfection - creepy, tense, shady characters on a luxury cruiseship, Agatha-Christie-meets-Gillian-Flynn energy... I was hooked from the start.

The latter half was OK. Without spoilers, the story became more... contained? And moved more toward domestic noir than whodunit.

A fab thriller.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 stars

I made it to 25% and there is still no hint of what the mystery is. A mediocre travel journalist with a messy personal life has her apartment robbed while she is in it, which gives her panic attacks. She is then stuck on the first voyage of a fancy cruise ship for work, full of other desperate journalists and rich boring people. The repartee is not witty. Just not enough here to hold my interest.

quote
LitStephanie

"They did that sort of manly half hug thing, where you're too metrosexual for a handshake and not hip enough for a fist bump." I am not sure about this book, but I like the author's funny commentary.

I really enjoyed this mystery/thriller.
Lo is one of the 10 invited guest on the Aurora. While the guest should be enjoy the cruise, one night, Lo heard a scream and a splash, as if a body was thrown in the ocean. Lo decides to investigate but she was warned to 'stop digging'.

Woman in Cabin Ten | Ruth Ware

I read 3 books by this author this month for #AuthorAMonth @Soubhiville This book was published in 2016 but I have read a couple of recent thrillers and they are very similar in topics.
Lo works for a travel magazine and she will substitute someone from her job to go in this luxury cruise. Lo has drinking problems and when she reported what she saw, probably a missing person, no one believes her. She is an unreliable witness. ⬇️

Gissy The situation gets complicated. Can‘t say more without spoiling the story. What I like: very atmospheric, how characters are described, the story has some twists. What I didn‘t like much: I think the author drag/extends the story too much, too wordy. Some actions are a little unrealistic, maybe? But still, there is something about her writing style that I like, I think is how she describes the atmosphere, I can picture it very well 3.5⭐️ 1y

Laura, a travel journalist, is on the maiden voyage of a luxury cruise ship, when she hears a scream, a splash, and a bloody smear on the balcony of the neighboring cabin. No one is in that cabin or reported missing and Laura is an unreliable witness with her excessive drinking and sleep deprivation. I generally like “closed room” mysteries, but I found the protagonist annoying. Good use of emails/news clips interspersed, but only a so-so story.

👍
-fast read, suspenseful.
-unreliable narrator with anxiety problem (whom I found exasperating later in the story).
-use of social media to heighten suspense.
-uncertainty over what happens after the final pages.
👎
-long list of names made difficult to follow (weak characterisation).
-cliche after cliche.

Overall, a fun (& forgettable) diversion from my stress of moving house. I think her later novels are better.

Lo Blacklock is a travel journalist who goes on the maiden voyage of the AURORA BOREALIS, a luxury cruise chip, for an assignment in the Norwegian fjords. Lo witnesses what she believes is a woman being thrown overboard, yet all passengers remain accounted for, and no one believes her. A fast-paced thriller and page turner--and a very easy read. A fun, watery romp. #claustrophicinwater

Even though the trip is a work related, she quickly finds herself in an awkward then dangerous position. The reader is lead through an intriguing yet unpredictable week long journey filled with astute observations from the first person POV. Pay close attention or end up rereading passages!

I had high hopes for this locked room mystery, but it ended up being pretty average. I sped through the end to find out what happened, but I didn‘t feel very invested in the main character. If I had read this before The Woman in the Window, I think I would have liked it more, but it fell a little flat for me in comparison. Book 3 for #kicktheslump! I met my goal, woohoo!
