Publisher's Summary

This was meant to be the perfect trip. The northern lights. A press launch on a luxury cruise ship. A 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 relationship.
Except things don't go as planned. Woken 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 that no one ever checked in to that cabin, and no passengers are missing from the boat.
Exhausted, 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....

Poorly Written

I disliked all the characters in this book. Too long. Boring. Don't waste your time or money.

I love a novel that holds your interest so tight that you can't turn it off. Even better when you don't guess what is coming around the corner. Perhaps their will be a sequel??

Don't bother

I had pretty high hopes for this book, audible seem to be pushing it quite a lot but I found it very frustrating. The main character is so pathetic I ended up willing her not to get out of trouble! If I heard the sentence "I was soooo tired" one more time I though I might scream.

I did get to the end, pulled through by the great performance of the narrator, but it was not a brilliant listen at all.

found the lead character infuriating

This plot had the potential for so much more development with other characters and I found myself just getting annoyed with the lead character and almost giving up with the book on several occasions. the last quarter of the book is probably the best bit

Good story but awful narration

What did you like best about The Woman in Cabin 10? What did you like least?

I enjoyed this book overall, even though the main protagonist, Lo Blacklock, was unbelievably annoying at times. I found myself screaming at her when she did yet another inept thing. There was a good twist at the end, although I had worked it out and was not surprised. This book was let down by the narration. Imogen Church overdid the dramatic bit, increasing my irritation. I suspect that I would have enjoyed this book more if I had read it rather than listening to it. The book begins with Lo Blacklock waking up one night with an intruder in her home. This is not particularly relevant to the plot, other than underlining that she is neurotic, although one should not be dismissive of mental illness and she does take medication for an anxiety disorder. This is partly why no one believes her when she thinks that someone has been murdered in the eponymous cabin 10, the cabin next to hers on an exclusive small cruise ship. Lo has been invited in the maiden voyage in her capacity as a travel writer. The rest of the guests are also from the press, and they are all awful. The only vaguely likable character is Lo's boyfriend Judah, but his is a bit-part only.

What could Ruth Ware have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I think the book could have been shortened and more tightly edited. Some of the dramatization was over done.

Which character – as performed by Imogen Church – was your favourite?

None. I did not like her reading at all.

Did The Woman in Cabin 10 inspire you to do anything?

It was lacking something

I couldn't finish this. I felt that the author missed something. She went from hearing a splash in the water to immediately concluding there had been a murder. That was odd. Where was the build up of suspician or evidence. Really disappointed.
