I can’t get through this book. It’s almost as bad as Girl on a Train, which I gave up on even earlier than this one. The title intrigued me, but the title character is such a loser! The writing just doesn’t feel right. I keep jumping ahead to see if my interest might be piqued, but, no, hasn’t happened. I don’t like giving up on a book, but this is a waste of time. I much prefer Andrea Camilleri, Ruth Randell, Louise Penny, Naomi Hirahara, etc. I MIGHT try Ware’s newest one (at a much later date) to give it another chance, but this one is not for me.

Very easy read. Slow build-up, not as much suspense and I'd expected, but a good book to get you by in the meantime,.

The cruise murder mystery idea caught my interest. The Woman in Cabin 10 had great build up, but it felt rushed at the end. I felt like the author was in a hurry to end the book as soon as possible.

Overall, it's a decent read!

This book is easy to read and I found it to be quite enjoyable.

As others have commented it does get a little dull about halfway through but by that point you're so committed to finding out what happens that you just accept it and keep going.

That being said the overall storyline and plot are well thought out. The story makes sense and is plausible.

Really did not care for this book and actually did not finish it. I disliked the crudeness and the language in it and it seemed to go nowhere. It is about a woman whose career in journalism and reporting takes her on a cabin cruiser owned by a very wealthy businessman. Cabin 10 is the cabin next to hers and a woman in that cabin. The reporter is constantly drunk it seems and always tired so I gave up after the first 100 pages. Too bad.

It was okay but I got tired of the main subject always being intoxicated.

Two stars only because it was a quick and easy read and the suspense kept me interested enough to stick with it to the end. But as others have said, the main character is miserable, even on the last page.

Ruth Ware may have hoped to be the successor to "Girl on the Train" frenzy, but fails with a pointless plot, wooden characters, and unbelievable situations.

I was very excited to read this novel after reading 'The Lying Game' but unfortunately the novel was full of what seemed like pointless events until about halfway through. After the halfway point the suspense began to pick up and it became much more interesting. Before that point though, it was slow and full of situations that presented the main character as unlikeable/ annoying.
Not a bad read if you're looking for something with slight suspense that you can get through relatively quickly.

"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
