Overview

From New York Times bestselling author, Ruth Ware comes The Woman in Cabin 10, a suspenseful and haunting novel—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, but as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the desk, 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.

Great read aside from my mild dislike for Lo who tended to annoy me, making it really difficult to connect with her character. However, the story and the plot had me guessing up until the end. The narrator is by far one of my favorites ever since The Death of Mrs. Westaway. Her voice and her ability to make each character sound different is fantastic. Recommended read indeed!

I agree with other readers, I didn’t like the main character until her empathy toward the end of the book, before that she seemed to whine a bit too much and not able too cope too well, but you do learn a bit about that later in the book. Good suspense, that was enjoyed.

The narrator did a fine job reading. I only disliked her “Judah” voice. This was so well written. I was engaged the entire way through. I especially enjoyed the clever twist at the very end. Well done Ms. Ware. Looking forward to reading more of her work.

Not a very likeable main character, rather than feeling empathy I was exasperated with her. Excellent narrator.

I prefer a more likeable main character, but it was still suspenseful.

Kevin A. I agree, the first chapters of the book dragged on way too long, but as the story developed it had all the Agatha Christie suspense. The details of the characters and the Norway scenery were great...Make sure you listen to the last five minutes of the book. Great Summer Read!
