Agree that the ending was a bit rushed. The protagonist, a young journalist, is not an appealing character, I found her neurosis tiresome and her interactions with her boyfriends were peevish. Nevertheless, great plot and a great book to take on a cruise.

Loved it! This is the second book I have read by Ruth Ware, and it was an excellent book that kept me on the edge of my seat.

A woman begins to doubt her sanity because the story she is trying to tell does not seem believable, until she realizes it did happen, and she is afraid for her life.

A great read but I found the ending to be a bit rushed. Would definitely recommend.

Old fashioned Alfred Hitchcock style murder mystery with painful and emotional psychological second-guessing who is really who they say they are and who can be trusted all while being contained on a luxury cruise boat with no quick destination for help or support. The excellent narrator (audiobook) helped create a real page-turning feel.

"The Woman in Cabin 10" by Ruth Ware is a locked-room mystery: the first two-thirds of the novel is quite readable. The solution though is way too complicated. I'm reminded of one locked-room mystery where the solution had the bad guy building exact duplicate mansions. In this novel, the explanation also depends on something being duplicated. The sleuth, here, is a first-time amateur and seemingly unreliable: the plot does make good use of both her naïveté and confusion. All in all a fun mystery with a disappointing solution.

Oh, my gosh, It took me a while to figure out why this book has had such positive reviews. Then I GOT IT! Wow, it turned into a murder mystery with an original plot and lots of danger. At the end, all I could say was I am glad I am not rich enough to afford one of those swanky yacht cruises.

It was interesting who-dun-it novel. The whole concept of who the woman in cabin 10 was very interesting.

"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
