It was a good twisty page turner and I read it very quickly. I liked the ship setting, and the atmosphere of dread. The main character was sometimes aggravating. I agree there are similarities to "The Girl on the Train". If you liked that, you will probably like this too. It isn't ... Read More »

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 like Ruth Ware but this book was a BIG let down!!! Too boring for me and I thought it was going to be suspenseful, NOT!!!

I wanted to enjoy this book. I did not. It was boring and dragged on and on. Moving on.

It was an interesting reading. But the impression is that author was thinking about possible future movie which could be made based on this book. There are so many unrealistic actions that in my opinion "damaged" what could be a real psychological thriller. She used theme of Agatha Christie- who is a murderer in this group of people?

The book was very good. One of the best novels I have read in awhile. It was a good murder mystery and kept me turning the pages. I really thought the ending was well written. I will read books from Ruth Ware again the future and plan to read her other book "In a Dark Dark Wood" next. Would recommend Girl in Cabin 10!

I enjoyed this book. I thought the first few chapters grabbed my interest starting out as somewhat of a thriller. It was enough to keep me reading more and wanting to know who the people were and if what they said were true. It does have that nice twist in the plot at the end with suspense and I like the mystery of the story. I didn't think the character was the strongest person because she was struggling with problems of her own, but to have to go through what happened made her better.

Very easy read. Slow build-up, not as much suspense and I'd expected, but a good book to get you by in the meantime,.

"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
