I’m always looking for the next book to add to my reading pile. It’s a pretty big pile!! I read a lot of fiction. Usually either a mystery novel or something more light hearted like the books by Emily Giffin. The Woman in Cabin 10 definitely falls into the former.
The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware is a enthralling mystery filled with twists and turns. It is one book that you won’t want to put down!!
Lo Blacklock is a journalist for a travel magazine who has been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise ship, the Aurora, travelling the North Sea. The trip starts out pleasant but during a dark and stormy night Lo witnesses a 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 prove that something has gone terribly wrong.
review: the woman in Cabin 10
As I said, I like a good mystery and The Woman in Cabin 10 definitely fits the bill!! I commute to my practicum so I usually read on the subway. I was so immersed in this book that I almost missed my transfer stop!! Thankfully I looked up just in time.
What I liked about this book is that it keeps you guessing. So many times you figure out the ending halfway through the book. I can honestly say that I did not figure out who Lo had seen being tossed overboard that night.
Lo is a complicated character who is struggling with her own issues after a traumatic incident at the start of the book. Ware does a good job of illustrating how easily dismissed a woman’s fears and beliefs are without demonize the other characters.
Is Lo to be believed? Did she really see a woman being thrown over board? And if she did who was she??
If you are looking for a good mystery, I definitely recommend picking up The Woman in Cabin 10. Have you read it already? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below
