Once I started it, I enjoyed The Woman In Cabin 10 and listened to it over the course of a couple of days. I listened to the enjoyable English accent of Imogen Church out-loud as I don’t like to wear headphones, if I don’t have to.
There was a lot of cursing, which didn’t bother me as it added to the tension in the story. However, my husband, hearing nearby, expressed some shock!
The main character in the story, Lo Blacklock, suffers from anxiety. When she is thrown into a whodunit murder mystery, her anxiety intensifies. I thought the continual anxiety was a little overkill. On second thought, that is the nature of anxiety and the author, Ruth Ware, captured it well.
To the author and narrator’s credit, I was, in a way, glued to my seat until the end. While I didn’t feel it was a particularly clever plot, I rated it 5 Stars since it was entertaining.
