"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

I thought it was pretty meh.
Maybe I should start writing murder mysteries and get on the new york times best seller list?

Boring. The narrator’s New York accent is horrendous.

I've never heard the word "stupid" used so many times in one book...

Poorly constructed, redundant vocabulary, and obvious cues to "whodunnit" early on if you're paying attention. Would not suggest.

The plot is cinematic and full of twists and turns that keep you in suspense until the protagonist gets to the next cliffhanger. A very clever twist on the "murder in a locked room" genre.

So Stupid!

The reader is easy on the ears and does well to vary the voices of the characters. The story itself is pretty dull. It is advertised as a thriller but the writing doesn't convince the reader that the narrator is in danger at any point. There is not enough variation in the descriptions; every loud noise sounds like a gunshot, apparently. Lo is easily the least interesting character in the novel. There are several factors that should make her an unreliable narrator: she drinks too much, she takes anxiety medication (with the alcohol), and she doesn't sleep. Yet, her account of the events turns out to be totally accurate? Around disc seven the story starts to become interesting, but it doesn't last. The climax is a little too ridiculous. The most interesting part of the book is the third person news reports which periodically break up the story.

I read this after a glowing recommendation from a friend. I was disappointed that I didn't enjoy it as much as he did.

Found some of the parts seems to drag on , and the ending was rather disappointing in leaving so much to speculation after investing so much in getting through the book . found the heroine annoying so it was a bit difficult to root for her

Imogen Church 's performance as a narrator is excellent . I can still hear her deep voice in my head when I think about the book . She made its slow moments very bearable!

Fans of "Girl on the Train" will enjoy this second psychological thriller by Ruth Ware. Both novels feature an unreliable female narrator who witnesses something tradgic but even to themselves doubt if what they saw actually happened. This is a somewhat fast paced novel that will have the reader guessing "whodunit "as well as featuring plot twists and turns. Personally I preferred Wares' debut novel "In a Dark Dark Wood" of her two novels.
