The Woman in Cabin 10 Review

Updated: Jul 16

After a disappointing read of The Turn of the Key, The Woman in Cabin 10 was a much better read.


Rating: 4/5

As thrillers go, I think this one is another good one. It reminded me again of Lock Every Door (I find myself constantly comparing thrillers to this) as it's got a very similar timeline. The Woman in Cabin 10 has a timeline of about a week. But what I liked more in this one was it would jump ahead in the timeline to throw you off. In the end, every loose end is tied or explained even if you have to make a few assumptions.


I can't say I enjoyed this more than I enjoyed Lock Every Door. I'd say it was about the same. As their overall concepts were wildly different. The only similarity was the quick timeline as I mentioned before.

Overall, I thought it was great read. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good Whodunit novel. This one will definitely throw you through the hoops. I was definitely off the trail, but once I found out the truth, all my other guesses were correct.

This book also redeemed my thoughts on Ruth Ware's books. After a disappointing read of The Turn of the Key, The Woman in Cabin 10 was a much better read and I can't wait to read other books by Ruth Ware. My next Ruth Ware book will be The Lying Game.
