5 starsThere s a reason why we keep thoughts inside our heads for the most part they re not safe to be let out in publicLaura Lo Blacklock just won the career lottery her pregnant boss can no longer attend the Aurora cruise Instead, her boss sends Lo as the magazine s representative to the maiden voyageFor a travel journalist I m worryingly bad at geographyThe ship is full of rich socialites, intrepid reporters and world renowned rich folks the perfect people to wine dine Lo can feel it in her bonesthis is her chanceRight before she sets off her apartment is broken into, and she feels fear like she s never felt it before.
The very first night, she borrows mascara from The Woman in Cabin 10 hey o it s the title Later that night, Lo hears a splash outside and sees what looks like a body sinking beneath the waves.
Only, when she raises the alarmeveryone on th Deep sixing this one read only 14% so not rating it Not feeling it and to be honest the dialogue just seems corny.
Thank you Netgalley for my copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I should start by saying I ended up not reading the author s first book, In a Dark, Dark Wood, because someone I know spoiled the whole big twist for me I also should say I wasn t very disappointed as I wouldn t have enjoyed spending all the time invested reading it for another Gone Girl wannabe I m getting a little tired of everyone wanting to write the next big hit in the genre, but writing THE EXACT same story with differently named characters I ll also say that, while comparing the plots of her two books, this one was loads improved and I was interested to see what she wrote next, as I felt it would be a show of her own work instead of trying to be the The Woman in Cabin 10 promised an intense read, but all I felt after reading this was intense anger Anger because I expected so much than what the author promised The premise is typical of a thriller novel, it depicts a rollercoaster ride This novel unfortunately is a huge disappointment for me So much time wasted.
I listened to this book because I had other books I was already reading, and I need to listen to a book while driving The narrator didn t have the most pleasing voice, but she still did a good job I believe that the character the author created, Lo, is the problem She s a rude, conceited, and honestly a bit stupid I hate thrillers with a good plot but has terrible characters This novel has terrible characters and a mediocre plot It all s I just realized I don t hate myself and therefore will not be completing this if you look up the word mediocre in the dictionary it s just a photo of this book maybe a photo of the opening page because the cover is the only thing about this that isn t shitListen, this is just about the most generic thriller ever written Let s talk about all the shitty ass ways this book copies The Girl on the Train, a 2015 novel that I have an immense distaste for They have the exact same plot.
Lead observes something But no one will believe her because she is Un Re Li Able.
You can read literally any one of these novels and there s an unreliable narrator Why is she unreliable Some unspecific mental condition that will play into her character I received a copy of The Woman in Cabin 10 from NetGalley for an honest review Thank you to NetGalley, Gallery Scout Press, and Ruth Ware for the opportunity This book will be published in July, 2016.
You know the feeling.
poised for sound and vigilant for any hint of the slightest evidence of movement You are alone At least that is what your mind tells you.
Lo Blacklock has barely an eye open after a night of some serious throwing em back drinking But there are sounds coming from the outer periphery of her tiny basement apartment And why is the door closed A turn of the doorknob reveals a man completely encased in a cocoon of black clothing and wearing latex gloves Shock finds Lo instantly and she is completely immobile The door slams and Lo is locked inside.
Later, Lo is able to break out
Plot holes bigger than the Grand Canyon Every character unlikable.
Glossed over sexual assault Took Forever to get going.
That ENDING, I hurt my eyes rolling them so hard.
Guess what Lo Blacklock I wouldn t have believed you either.
My reviews can also be seen at starsThis is my first book by Ruth Ware I have always wanted to take a luxury cruise and so the plot of this book intrigued me.
I was actually going to read Dark Dark Wood prior to reading this novel However, since I won a copy of this book from a Goodreads Giveaway, so I figured I could always go back and read Dark Dark Wood some other time Journalist, Laura Lo Blacklock is a writer for a travel magazine Lo suffers from anxiety and after a terrifying home invasion she doesn t feel safe anywhere any Maybe her new work assignment will help It is a free week long trip on a luxury cruise This assignment could also help with the promotion she s been wanting.
The Aurora is a beautiful brand new boat Luxurious but small and intimate with only ten cabins But the assignment of a lifetime soon turns into a nightmare when Lo is positive Was Meant To Be The Perfect TripThe Northern Lights A Luxury Press Launch On A Boutique Cruise ShipA Chance For Travel Journalist Lo Blackwood To Recover From A Traumatic Break In That Has Left Her On The Verge Of Collapse, And To Work Out What She Wants From Her RelationshipExcept Things Don T Go As PlannedWoken In The Night By Screams, Lo Rushes To Her Window To See A Body Thrown Overboard From The Next Door Cabin But The Records Show Trailer ë The Woman in Cabin 10 PDF by ë Ruth Ware That No One Ever Checked Into That Cabin, And No Passengers Are Missing From The BoatExhausted, Emotional And Increasingly Desperate, Lo Has To Face The Fact That Her Sleep Problems Might Be Driving Her Mad Or She Is Trapped On A Boat With A Murderer And She Is The Sole Witness I just knew I was going to love this book because I love the cover I know, that almost never happens Then I thought this was just going to be a lets all get drunk at all times and then say stupid things and yell at boyfriend and get drunk some and see a body on a ship, the end, goodbye Well, it was kinda like that What is it with everyone having to be drunk all of the time in these books When I first started the book last night, I couldn t put it down I wanted to get to the ship and see what was going on Then once we were on there, I wanted to keep going but sleep took me away The beginning of the story was bleh for me because I just wanted to get to the boat and I didn t see any reason for that beginning Then when you re on the boat and the beginning is used against the main character, Lo Blacklock, I began to understand Lo is a travel journalist and is finally get
