The Woman in Cabin 10

The woman in Cabin 10  is Ruth Ware‘s second novel. It, just like In a Dark Dark Wood, is a psychological thriller. I was not as impressed with this book as I was with In a Dark Dark Wood. In some ways it was more suspenseful, but there are certain parts of the story that I wish had connected to the ending (I won’t spoil anything here).

The main character, Lo Blacklock, is a journalist for a travel magazine. Honestly though, I don’t see how. She’s the most socially awkward person in the book. I seriously cringed at some of the things she said or some of the ways she acted. Lo’s boss must have really liked her, or else she wouldn’t have been in the business for ten years.

The majority of the story takes place on a luxury cruise with other journalist and business people, one of whom happens to be Lo’s ex boyfriend. During most of the book, you’re listening to Lo freak out (internally and externally) about almost everything. I’m pretty sure if someone dropped a pen near this woman, she’d lose her shit.

I won’t say much more, because I don’t want spoil the book. I honestly only finished it because it was an audio book and I had already paid for it. This book was decent, but it wasn’t a stand out to me.
Happy reading!
