The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware book review
The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware was another online book club pick that honestly, I didn’t enjoy. I heard that it’s like The Girl on the Train, but if this is the case, I don’t know if I would be interested in the latter. I did however hear that the “Train” book is much better.
This book is supposed to be a suspenseful novel set at sea revolving around a tightly wound, Lo Blacklock. Lo is a journalist who writes for a travel magazine and has just been given the assignment of a lifetime (or so she thinks). She’s been giving the opportunity to spend a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. Think The Titanic, but on a much smaller scale. However, as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a nightmare. She’s 99% sure that she sees a woman being thrown overboard. But guess what, no one believes her! SHOCKING!! :) Also, all passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened. Clearly this excuse doesn’t stop Lo and she begins her desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly wrong.
The book follows plot twists and turns that the reader too starts to think that maybe Lo was imagining things…I guess you’ll have to find out if the event really took place or not by reading the book. Fair warning…there’s MANY F-bombs in this book…which kind of shocked me and I felt like was completely uncalled for.
While I didn’t exactly enjoy this book, maybe you will. It definitely is a quick read as I got through it in less than a week. It was after all, a New York Times best seller! :) ENJOY..hopefully?! :)
