"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

Yeah, not a good book. A stretch to believe the situations, an unlikable protagonist and a dreary read. Life is short and full of great books. Give this one a miss.

i chose this novel expecting an Agatha Christie type read but was disappointed, mainly because the novel focused on the main character who was unlikeable and annoying.

I enjoyed the first 3/4 of this book, however the revelation and the ending of the story left me unsatisfied. But overall, enjoyable easy-thriller read.

I like Ruth Ware but this book was a BIG let down!!! Too boring for me and I thought it was going to be suspenseful, NOT!!!

I wanted to enjoy this book. I did not. It was boring and dragged on and on. Moving on.

It was an interesting reading. But the impression is that author was thinking about possible future movie which could be made based on this book. There are so many unrealistic actions that in my opinion "damaged" what could be a real psychological thriller. She used theme of Agatha Christie- who is a murderer in this group of people?

The book was very good. One of the best novels I have read in awhile. It was a good murder mystery and kept me turning the pages. I really thought the ending was well written. I will read books from Ruth Ware again the future and plan to read her other book "In a Dark Dark Wood" next. Would recommend Girl in Cabin 10!

I enjoyed this book. I thought the first few chapters grabbed my interest starting out as somewhat of a thriller. It was enough to keep me reading more and wanting to know who the people were and if what they said were true. It does have that nice twist in the plot at the end with suspense and I like the mystery of the story. I didn't think the character was the strongest person because she was struggling with problems of her own, but to have to go through what happened made her better.

"I love ports. I love the smell of tar and sea air, and the scream of the gulls. Maybe it's years of taking the ferry to France for summer holidays, but a harbor gives me a feeling of freedom in a way that an airport never does. Airports say work and security checks and delays. Ports say... I don't know. Something completely different. Escape, maybe.” - p. 34
