This book did a great job of getting you invested while also keeping you on your toes! I couldn’t put it down!!

Interesting ending....if you can get to it

The beginning of the book grabbed my attention. The middle of the book not only confused me but also lost my attention. I stuck it out, to see how it would end. Wasnt the twist I suspected and the ending was rather engaging as the beginning of the book was. If you can stick out the middle it is worth it.


It takes a while for the story to get interesting in my opinion.

Didnt live up to the hype.

Main character is extremely annoying which makes it difficult to get through. It's an easy read and conclusion was okay. Would not read again.

Great read

I really enjoyed this book. It was an easy read and had an unexpected turn! I look forward to reading more from this author.

Decent enough for killing time.

I found the lead character in this book impossible to like, as I did in the authors previous book. The story was OK but it was hard to 'care' if she lived or died. Oddly, the secondary characters were funner to read about. It wasn't a terrible book just hard to invest reader emotion into a character so bland.

What a fantastic read!!

Held my attention from the first couple of pages. The author's writing style is flawless and effective, without any unnecessary fillers. Loved the ending. Highly recommend!

Excellent mystery

Well done mystery on the high seas. Thoroughly enjoyable to the end.


It sounded interesting but didn't have the depth that I like, even in mystery novels. The plot was predictable and the characters were one-dimensional.

Ruth Ware is now a favorite author of mine.

This is the first book I read by Ruth Ware (but planning to read her other books). I found it to be very suspenseful and then couldn’t put it down until I finished it. If you like that kind of reading, you’ll definitely like this book! I highly recommend this author.

Very cool

Very cool story, with a very likable protagonist. I really enjoyed this story. Very compelling, interesting read. The prose moved quickly, and kept you guessing.


The book didn’t even get started until it was half way over or at least even get interesting. I wasn’t a huge fan of In a Dark, Dark Wood so I have this a chance. Neither one were good. I’m disappointed ☹️

Not what Expected

I read this book in two days. I did not expect it to turn out they way I had planed in my head. I thought they would find a dead woman and it would be your typical murder case. Nope, it wasn't your typical murder case. It's been awhile since I read this book and I think about the story from time to time. It is a book I will read again.

Plenty of better books to read...

I bought this book because I had just finished "In a Dark, Dark Wood" by Ruth Ware and loved it. This was a let down to say the least. It was quite boring for about the first half and I couldn't relate with the main character at all. She was useless and annoying, making it very hard to feel any sort of emotion while reading. The end also came very abruptly and I just think there could have been a lot more done to give this book some depth. Wouldn't recommend spending the time to read it.

Insipid, cliched and written on a fifth grade level. Lacks any suspense and is irritatingly boring. The protagonist is completely unlikable and only gets more so as the story progresses. A completely mindless read, and not in a good, escapist way. Don't bother.

💞 it.

This was another great book to read i read most of these books 📚 all in less than either a month or a week.that's how perfect the book was.

1⭐ The Woman in Cabin 10 Ruth Ware It was a struggle to give this book even 1 ⭐. I Thought this was one of the most poorly written books I have ever read. I should have read the reviews. How did this book get on the best sellers list? Is every heroine from the UK a drunken, whining, "unreliable" witness? The author even goes so far to tell us numerous times that her heroine is a drunken unreliable witness as if we couldn't figure this out by ourselves. There are so many things wrong with this book, One of the worst books of the year. Poorly written, ridiculous characters, contrived and uninteresting plot. Totally bogged down with the narcissistic lead character who was neither interesting nor compelling. Waste of time and money.I haven't read a book where I detested the main character more than I despised this one. She is a claustrophobic, alcoholic, neurotic insomniac. She’s also a total screwup at her job, and honestly, not very bright. Her house was just broken into so you’re trying to cut her a break, but her nonstop complaining— it’s too hot, it’s too cold, the ceilings are too low, the room’s too small, my clothes smell, I’m too sleepy, I’m too hungry, I’m not hungry, I’m hungover, etc.— is getting to you. Plus there’s the counting to herself (One, Two, Three…!) and the constant, random weeping. She’s a hot mess. It was such an Awful. Extremely slow, plodding story line with a completely unlikeable main character. Chapter 28 and I still can't figure out why there is such a myriad of characters that aren't contributing a thing to the story. I suggest saving yourself time and money and pass on this book. I wish i did. I found myself wishing fervently that someone would toss her overboard, I knew that this book was not going to be a favorite. She has been comped a luxury cruise, so that she can report on it for publication. Despite all the enviable perks received, she has written nothing, and is getting a reputation on the ship as a whack job. She is unendingly rude to passengers and staff alike. Her whining and constant neurotic view of everything and everyone she encounters is so prevalent that it is practically a character by itself. Discretion on any level is beyond her grasp, yet she wonders how everybody know intimate details of her pathetic private life. If I were her boss, I would fire her. If I were an ex-lover like Ben, I would be thanking my lucky stars that I was no longer involved with her. I really wanted to love this book, because the premise was so intriguing, but her entire life seems to be one long panic attack, and I got really exhausted after the tenth or eleventh round of hyperventilation and rubbery legs. By the middle of the book, I was praying that her panic would become so severe that she would need to be air-lifted to the closest looney bin. She has so many phobias that it is hard keeping track. I apologize to anyone who loved it, but the biggest improvement that could be made would have involved drowning, bludgeoning, or stabbing Lo to death with that GD borrowed mascara. The ending was ridiculous. I wish I could have my money back. This book really makes women look weak and stupid.

It's eh

At first I was pretty into it and then as it kept going I found myself feeling like maybe I had skipped pages. It goes from her being attacked in her home to being stuck on a boat being attacked. And then the news clippings talking about her being dead it made me completely lose interest. All of a sudden I didn't find myself panicking for her and telling myself that she will make it and the truth will come out, all because she's dead. I don't know, maybe it's just me.

I know I’m going to love this book. That’s why I gave it 5 stars. I know this is not the normal way

Dull and insulting, albeit unfinished

This review will be updated: I want to leave a review as currently I'm unable to carry on reading this book, and want to share why. In the first 15 pages, our female protagonist is painted as irresponsible, insecure, unsure, unqualified at work, contradictory, dense, inept, psychotic, repetitive, and somehow still completely flat. As a female, this is frustrating. As a reader, this is frustrating. She lucks into the Work Invitation that opens up the real plot of the book, and states she doesn't even know how she got it; I'm hard pressed to be interested as we're given a shallow few sentences about her work. In general, the writer has provided so little foundation, I can't bring myself to care about this woman's ramblings -- despite the frightful happening that occurs in the first chapter -- nor am I able to develop a well-rounded idea of her because all we're given is the aforementioned ridiculousness. The syntax is so dry and uniform I found myself skipping full paragraphs or pages, and when forcing myself to return and read them, confirmed they truly had no influence on the plot whatsoever. This novel seems like the very first draft -- no long term editing, no plot point editing, no character editing, no thematic editing. I'm sure when I lock myself in a room for a day and force myself to finish this, it could very well have some exciting points, but again as nothing has been developed appropriately, I just don't care. It's like starting a movie in the middle -- I see what's going on and it's mildly interesting, but I don't have the background to be engaged. If you're looking for a thriller that grabs you by the throat from the first chapter and doesn't let go, Behind Closed Doors or The Girl Before is a better place to start. Again, will update upon completion. Ye be warned!

A wonderful thriller!!

While reading, "The Women In Cabin 10" so many shocking twist and turns where happening, it was hard to put the book down! I definitely recommend reading this book, or any book by Ruth Ware. Ware's book "In a Dark Dark Wood" was also a wonderful book to read and she is clearly a great author.
