Old fashioned Alfred Hitchcock style murder mystery with painful and emotional psychological second-guessing who is really who they say they are and who can be trusted all while being contained on a luxury cruise boat with no quick destination for help or support. The excellent narrator (audiobook) helped create a real page-turning feel.

"The Woman in Cabin 10" by Ruth Ware is a locked-room mystery: the first two-thirds of the novel is quite readable. The solution though is way too complicated. I'm reminded of one locked-room mystery where the solution had the bad guy building exact duplicate mansions. In this novel, the explanation also depends on something being duplicated. The sleuth, here, is a first-time amateur and seemingly unreliable: the plot does make good use of both her naïveté and confusion. All in all a fun mystery with a disappointing solution.

Oh, my gosh, It took me a while to figure out why this book has had such positive reviews. Then I GOT IT! Wow, it turned into a murder mystery with an original plot and lots of danger. At the end, all I could say was I am glad I am not rich enough to afford one of those swanky yacht cruises.

It was interesting who-dun-it novel. The whole concept of who the woman in cabin 10 was very interesting.

This was a good read. Not too complex, suspenseful and interesting- not the best thriller I have read but I found it enjoyable. Sometimes a book like this is exactly what you need. Not too heavy or complicated.

I gave this book a four-star review, simply for the fact that it is a fast-paced easy read, which is exactly what I was looking for at the time. It was captivating enough that I wanted to keep reading and see it through until the end.

Yeah, not a good book. A stretch to believe the situations, an unlikable protagonist and a dreary read. Life is short and full of great books. Give this one a miss.

i chose this novel expecting an Agatha Christie type read but was disappointed, mainly because the novel focused on the main character who was unlikeable and annoying.

I enjoyed the first 3/4 of this book, however the revelation and the ending of the story left me unsatisfied. But overall, enjoyable easy-thriller read.

"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
