The Woman in Cabin 10

Twists right up to the last page, along with some really great turns of phrase, make The Woman in Cabin 10 a fun read. This early description of ball gown designers is just one example of humor in the midst of a thriller: “Apparently the majority of ball gowns were designed by five-year-old girls armed with glitter guns, but at least this one didn’t look entirely like an explosion in a Barbie factory.” And yes, there are some lighter moments in this scary story.

This book strikes me as a good addition to the “unreliable narrator” approach to thrillers that’s virtually become a fad recently. I think it may be the best I’ve read. Kudos to author Ruth Ware.
