The Woman in Cabin 10
The great plot brings this rating up... but the characters keep it from being higher. Pretty good overall. I do think it's reread-worthy.
Amazing!! I’m really starting to love this genre! I’ve come to realize that i just love anything mystery and this def wasn’t an exception. The situation in this book was laid out well and kept me guessing. I had many wild thoughts but def didn’t guess the true outcome. When Lo figured it out and explained it, it made sense, but it def wasn’t something i was going to actually guess on my own.
The writing, plot and pacing were great. The only real problem I had with the book was the characters. I found most of them unlikeable, even Lo. I thought Chloe was pretty nice and a few of the other less known guests, but the main people were almost repulsing. What was the ex’s name, Ben i think or Brad? Well he was horrible on the first night but grew on me more as the story went on. Lo however, didn’t really. She just seemed whiney and rude. I just don't see how anyone could get so drunk when they are suppose to be representing her work… she didn't make the best choices.
Overall, I really loved this book. Mystery is quickly becoming my new favorite genre. I've been looking into Ruth Ware and am excited to check out "In a Dark, Dark Wood" too, plus any other books she writes. I'd recommend this book to anyone wanting a good mystery-suspense story. If you like cruising, you'd probably love this too.
I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.
