about

From New York Times bestselling author of the “twisty-mystery” (Vulture) novel In a Dark, Dark Wood, comes The Woman in Cabin 10, an equally suspenseful and haunting novel from Ruth Ware—this time, set at sea.

In this tightly wound, enthralling story reminiscent of Agatha Christie’s works, Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea.

At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant, but as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the desk, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a dark and terrifying nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong...

With surprising twists, spine-tingling turns, and a setting that proves as uncomfortably claustrophobic as it is eerily beautiful, Ruth Ware offers up another taut and intense read in The Woman in Cabin 10—one that will leave even the most sure-footed reader restlessly uneasy long after the last page is turned.
Ruth Ware grew up in Lewes, in Sussex. After graduating from Manchester University she moved to Paris, before settling in North London. She has worked as a waitress, a bookseller, a teacher of English as a foreign language and a press officer. In a Dark, Dark Wood is her début thriller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Unexpected Twist I loved In a Dark Dark Wood and am finding myself becoming a big fan of Ruth Ware. Must read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from That Ending Though... Unfortunately, I can't help but compare the bulk of this story to "The Girl on the Train." But where I saw TGOTT ending coming a mile away, this one... just read it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fun read This was a fun read. I kept hearing such great things about it so when I went to read it I thought I had an idea what it was about. I did not. And I was so glad I didn't. It was a new, fun, thrilling story told in a way that kept you turning page after page, sometimes thinking, what the heck is going on?!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An okay read. Didn't love it, didn't hate it either. It was an okay to read. Not a fan of this genre and every time I give it a chance and pick up a book, it always confirms my opinion. It is a fast read and recommended to those who can't figure out what they want to pick up next. A book to cleanse your palette as you won't be emotionally attached to any of the characters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Red Herring... Such a brilliant read! The book came highly recommend by co-workers, and it was not a disappointment. If you are interested in reading all Wares books, I would suggest saving the Woman in Cabin 10 for last as the others will not live up to this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Twists! This book just keeps going. It is good right away because it skips between the before and after, but you have no idea what is going on right until the last and just when you think it can't get any weirder and ther can't be any more twists, BAM!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Intriguing at first - but ending was very abrupt I really enjoyed Ruth Ware's 2 other books, The Lying Game and Dark Dark Wood, and this one started off well and I couldn't put it down, but then the ending was so abrupt, it was like she just couldn't figure out how to end the story so just stopped.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard time to read I struggled with this book. I bought it because "In a dark dark wood" had been so good I thought this one would be just as good but I was wrong. I found myself having to force myself to finish it.. struggled to get through it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gets better towards the end I heard a lot of talk about this book prior to reading it. I found the main character to be really unlikable and it ruined the book for me a bit. The middle to end were more interesting as there was more happening in the story.

I found myself more engaged than the dark wood book, but didn't feel the need to continue reading when it was getting late. Too bad. Lots of positive reviews, sorry this isn't one of them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth staying up way too late to finish it! I bought Lying Game first and devoured it, so I bought The Girl in Cabin 10. I thoroughly enjoyed spending my Saturday night with this book. It kept me guessing as to who was this mysterious girl in Cabin 10 and who was responsible for her disappearance. I did find it difficult to sympathize with the main character, though. Now I need to get my hands on In the Dark, Dark Wood.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from hard to get into I picked up this book multiple times to read in the last few months. The first half of the book was hard to get into - the story just dragged on. I also don't feel like I was able to really connect with any of the characters. By the last quarter of the book, I just needed to know what the ending was and wanted to skip to the last 15 pages (which I didn't...as much as I wanted to). The ending wasn't impressive.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I saw this book everywhere and thought it would be as good as, say, "The Girl on the Train," but it was really disappointing. The writing was not very suspenseful and did not demonstrate a great mastery of the genre. Everything that happened seemed out of place and did not really make sense in the way a suspense novel ought to. The main character further was not very likable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Takes a while to get interesting I read many great reviews of this book and expected it to be amazing. To be fair, it does get interesting and it is very suspenseful, but only in the last third of the novel. I thought the ending was kind of weak as well.
Date published: 2017-11-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my favourite book I enjoyed that this book was a mystery, but the story was disjointed from the beginning, and the character development was poor. The main character was not likable, and sometimes I still cheer for those types of characters, but not this one. I couldn't understand why she was motivated to behave as she did. The way the book ended wasn't plausible. I wouldn't recommend this to others.
Date published: 2017-11-20
Rated 2 out of 5 by from The weakest of her offerings I had previously read In a Dark Dark Wood and loved it. This book, however, was much weaker. The ending felt rushed and contrived. And, quite frankly, I didn't care what happened to this dim-witted protagonist.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good read not as exciting as other mystery thrillers I wasn't super impressed with this story. I do like the way we have a depth of understanding of the emotional state of the main character, however, the other characters are not developed well. Still a good mystery thriller but not as engaging and thrilling as "In a dark, dark wood". I wasn't left with the uneasy feeling that you should get when you are reading a mystery thriller.
Date published: 2017-11-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Definitely kept me reading, but not as good as other books like this While reading this I couldn't help but think of the resemblances between this and books like The Girl on the Train (even the titles are similar!). Was hoping for something a little bit more original. The story was a bit far-fetched. However, this book was certainly a page turner so if you are looking for a quick read with some interesting plot twists, this is a great story!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Character The storyline was interesting and by the end I very much enjoyed it, but it took quite a while for it to pick up. While the emotional drudgery was justified, I increasingly wished there were fewer crying scenes and more development of the character before we reached the end of the book. Nevertheless, a great twist in the story and an easy read.
Date published: 2017-11-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from kept my attention I certainly didn't figure out the "who" in the mystery, but enjoyed getting there. Author good at creating claustrophobic atmosphere. I did find myself getting exasperated with the protagonist; I kept silently telling her to stop drinking; she was only making things worse for herself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just No I straight up hated this book. It started out ok I guess but there seemed to be so many nonsensical elements thrown in that one would assume would be explained later but never actually were. The main character was trying to investigate an alleged murder and feared for her life but seemed to almost always be either half corked or so tired she was barely able to function because she just seemed to never sleep for some reason that was never clear? And the ending? Don't get me started. Hard pass on this book. I gave it one star because it is in fact a readable book. That's it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Confused for Awhile Not sure why, but when I read the title of this book I assumed the storyline would take place in a dark cabin in the woods, not a cabin on a boat! I was admittedly quite confused for the first few chapters of this book and wondering when the story was going to start and what it had to do with Lo boarding a cruise ship.. then it hit me. From that point onwards I was completely drawn in. Excellent read! Very suspenseful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full of suspense and drama! A definite must read! This was such a great read. I've heard many things about this novel however, I never go the chance to read it and make an opinion of my own until now. I can say that I am very glad that I read this novel. It was very interesting and full of suspense and mystery that gives you the chance to try to solve the crimes before the book unfold them to you. It is not predictable as you expect some novels to be. I was not able to relate to the main character that much because she seemed to be a bit vain to me, however, this was a book about crime, therefore I did not find that the relate able part mattered much in that sense. However, it did make me like her character less which was not a bad thing, I still adored the book, it just gave me a different view point on the story that was going on around her. It seemed that as soon as a plot twist happens, another one is right behind it. I loved the twists and turns of this novel so much because it always gave you something extra to add to the story and the crime scenes. It made reading this book so much more interesting because there was never a dull moment. The ending of the book had me in awe as well. I will not go in detail about that because I do not want to give away any spoilers, however, I highly recommend that you read it for yourselves to figure out!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was okay. I was recommended this book by a coworker. I thought I would try it out. Took me quite a bit longer to finish the book then normal. I enjoyed the beginning of the book , but I kind of got lost during it and it seemed to drag, which is unfortunate. This isn't one that I would think of and say "I should reread that".

Rated 3 out of 5 by from mehh I felt this book was a bit over rated. There's a trend going on to replicate Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train. This, I feel didn't really make the cut. I'm giving this book 3 stars because it had some good parts, but overall it was just okay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just okay This one started off okay and continued with a fairly quick pace that is common with this type of genre. However, I feel like the middle was a bit drawn out and the ending was a little sloppy. I would still recommend it, as its a good vacation read, but it wasn't particularly memorable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good and quick read! Despite a week full of midterms and studying, I found the time to read and finish this book in less than three days. Once you get over the kind of slow beginning (the pace picks up towards the 2/3 of the book), you will find that you cannot put it down!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gripping It's one of those books where you just think to yourself "What the heck is going on" and get annoyed but them it hooks you back in and keep reading because you want to know what happens. Sort of like any horror movie where you think the protaganist is such an idiot for following the footsteps but you want to know what happens.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed Unfortunately I found this novel to be very frustrating to read. The main character isn't terribly sympathetic and I found the book slow moving and quite boring. Didn't even want to finish it but made myself do it in case it got better near the end...it didn't. Not as powerful as her previous work, which I enjoyed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Edge of My Seat This is by far my favourite Ruth Ware book. As others have said, it can get anecdotal at points, but I honestly didn't mind because it gave in sight into the main character that was valuable later. I ended up staying up until midnight trying to finish it because I just wanted to see what happened.

However I found the story was a bit too rushed in places, and Ruth aware wasn't quite able to embody the same macabre creepiness of her first novel. Still a good read, but not as good as her first.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A page-turner right up until the last 1/4 of the book The book starts off really well, taught and tense presenting an interesting setting even though the main character is kind of a mess ala "Girl on the Train". Everything sort falls apart in the last bit where the setting stays the same for far too long. And the final reveal of the mystery is just that much too far fetched.

Read from the Book

The Woman in Cabin 10 - CHAPTER 1 - FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 The first inkling that something was wrong was waking in darkness to find the cat pawing at my face. I must have forgotten to shut the kitchen door last night. Punishment for coming home drunk. “Go away,” I groaned. Delilah mewed and butted me with her head. I tried to bury my face in the pillow but she continued rubbing herself against my ear, and eventually I rolled over and heartlessly pushed her off the bed. She thumped to the floor with an indignant little meep and I pulled the duvet over my head, but even through the covers I could hear her scratching at the bottom of the door, rattling it in its frame. The door was closed. I sat up, my heart suddenly thumping, and Delilah leaped onto my bed with a glad little chirrup, but I snatched her to my chest, stilling her movements, listening. I might well have forgotten to shut the kitchen door, or I could even have knocked it to without closing it properly. But my bedroom door opened outward—a quirk of the weird layout of my flat. There was no way Delilah could have shut herself inside. Someone must have closed it. I sat, frozen, holding Delilah’s warm, panting body against my chest and trying to listen. Nothing. And then, with a gush of relief, it occurred to me—she’d probably been hiding under my bed and I’d shut her inside with me when I came home. I didn’t remember closing my bedroom door, but I might have swung it absently shut behind me when I came in. To be honest, everything from the tube station onwards was a bit of a blur. The headache had started to set in on the journey home, and now that my panic was wearing off, I could feel it starting up again in the base of my skull. I really needed to stop drinking midweek. It had been okay in my twenties, but I just couldn’t shake off the hangovers like I used to. Delilah began squirming uneasily in my arms, digging her claws into my forearm, and I let her go while I reached for my dressing gown and belted it around myself. Then I scooped her up, ready to sling her out into the kitchen. But when I opened the bedroom door, there was a man standing there. There’s no point in wondering what he looked like, because, believe me, I went over it about twenty-five times with the police. “Not even a bit of skin around his wrists?” they kept saying. No, no, and no. He had a hoodie on, and a bandanna around his nose and mouth, and everything else was in shadow. Except for his hands. On these he was wearing latex gloves. It was that detail that scared the shit out of me. Those gloves said, “I know what I’m doing.” They said, “I’ve come prepared.” They said, “I might be after more than your money.” We stood there for a long second, facing each other, his shining eyes locked on to mine. About a thousand thoughts raced through my mind: Where the hell is my phone? Why did I drink so much last night? I would have heard him come in if I’d been sober. Oh Christ, I wish Judah was here. And most of all—those gloves. Oh my God, those gloves. They were so professional. So clinical. I didn’t speak. I didn’t move. I just stood there, my ratty dressing gown gaping, and I shook. Delilah wriggled out of my unresisting hands and shot away up the hallway to the kitchen, and I just stood there, shaking. Please, I thought. Please don’t hurt me. Oh God, where was my phone? Then I saw something in the man’s hands. My handbag—my new Burberry handbag, although that detail seemed monumentally unimportant. There was only one thing that mattered about that bag. My mobile was inside. His eyes crinkled in a way that made me think he might be smiling beneath the bandanna, and I felt the blood drain from my head and my fingers, pooling in the core of my body, ready to fight or flee, whichever it had to be. He took a step forwards. “No . . .” I said. I wanted it to sound like a command, but it came out like a plea—my voice small and squeaky and quavering pathetically with fear. “N—” But I didn’t even get to finish. He slammed the bedroom door in my face, hitting my cheek. For a long moment I stood, frozen, holding my hand to my face, speechless with the shock and pain. My fingers felt ice-cold, but there was something warm and wet on my face, and it took a moment for me to realize it was blood, that the molding on the door had cut my cheek. I wanted to run back to bed, to shove my head under the pillows and cry and cry. But a small, ugly voice in my skull kept saying, He’s still out there. What if he comes back? What if he comes back for you? There was a sound from out in the hall, something falling, and I felt a rush of fear that should have galvanized me but instead paralyzed me. Don’t come back. Don’t come back. I realized I was holding my breath, and I made myself exhale, long and shuddering, and then slowly, slowly, I forced my hand out towards the door. There was another crash in the hallway outside, breaking glass, and with a rush I grabbed the knob and braced myself, my bare toes dug into the old, gappy floorboards, ready to hold the door closed as long as I could. I crouched there, against the door, hunched over with my knees to my chest, and I tried to muffle my sobs with my dressing gown while I listened to him ransacking the flat and hoped to God that Delilah had run out into the garden, out of harm’s way. At last, after a long time, I heard the front door open and shut, and I sat there, crying into my knees and unable to believe he’d really gone. That he wasn’t coming back to hurt me. My hands felt numb and painfully stiff, but I didn’t dare let go of the handle. I saw again those strong hands in the pale latex gloves. I don’t know what would have happened next. Maybe I would have stayed there all night, unable to move. But then I heard Delilah outside, mewing and scratching at the other side of the door. “Delilah,” I said hoarsely. My voice was trembling so much I hardly sounded like myself. “Oh, Delilah.” Through the door I heard her purr, the familiar, deep, chainsaw rasp, and it was like a spell had been broken. I let my cramped fingers loosen from the doorknob, flexing them painfully, and then stood up, trying to steady my trembling legs, and turned the door handle. It turned. In fact it turned too easily, twisting without resistance under my hand, without moving the latch an inch. He’d removed the spindle from the other side. Fuck. Fuck, fuck, fuck. I was trapped.
