This was gifted from my brother to me.
The Woman in Cabin 10
Summary: 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…
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
Everyone and their mama loves Ruth Ware books. But I had not read any!
One day I was skimming through my Kindle trying to figure out what to read next and I saw this book and I was like “Let’s give it a try!” My brother had gifted it to me some time earlier and it was time to see if he knew my literary taste 😉
I’m going to be painfully honest: The whole paranoid and likes the drink a bit too much thing almost grated my nerves. I know this book is a bit older and that is what seemed to be selling books a bit at the time (hello, Girl on the Train) so I almost quit reading for that. Then, the first part was slow. Maybe not as slow as molasses- but I put down the damn book for like 2 weeks because I was unsure if I would finish it.
Then I tweeted about it and a blogger friend encouraged me to keep with it. And I did. And it got better. Then I got intensely curious. It did take a turn into crazy town and it stretched my believability, and then I loved the ending.
What I liked:
The cover. Creep-tastic!
When things start clicking in the book. The mystery gave me good chills.
The ending. If you don’t chuckle at it, I can’t be friends with you.
Bottom line: Ruth Ware kept me entertained enough in The Woman in Cabin 10 to check out some of her other books.
