Book Review: The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

The back of this book describes it as a “twisty-mystery” and I think that is such an accurate description of the genre of this book.  Very much in line with books like: Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, and The Couple Next Door, this book keeps you guessing until the end.

The idea of truly empathizing with a character has never been more prominent to me than with Lo and her never ending exhaustion.  Honestly, I just wanted to take a nap reading her story.  Just when you think she’s going to get some relief, BOOM, something else happens and you just know the satisfaction of a little shut eye is being taken from her.  I don’t know if the author was going for that, but, there you have it.  I was exhausted reading this book – but only in a really good way.

There are a lot of characters in this book that you have to follow, and that can sometimes get a little confusing, but based on the setting of the book it is accurate.  Lo is a passenger on a small cruise boat where she is meant to be writing for a travel magazine; however, some unfortunate circumstances on her first night on the boat change her priorities fairly quickly.

I think there are definitely some plot holes in this book, but it’s just overall so entertaining that you can look past them.  If you’re looking for intrigue and drama, this is certainly a book that will keep you turning the pages!
