Let me first just talk about the cover, no matter how much someone will try to drill into a readers head that the cover doesn’t matter it still won’t happen. Humans are visual creatures and there isn’t much we can do to change that. The cover on The Women in Cabin Ten literally caught my eye, some kind of shiny material was used to add more detail to the rain and I loved the texture of the book. If you’re not really a nook person like I am the texture might also be something authors, and publishers should keep in mind. The shades of blue they used on the cover was good too, it had some dark shades to it, giving it an eerie feeling. I thought the window itself was also appealing, it makes the viewer think there’s something I’m looking into, maybe something I’m not supposed to be seeing, but I get to see it anyway.
Thrillers, crime, and mysteries are the types of books I’ve come to read more and more. The Women in Cabin Ten seemed like a little bit of all three, with burglary, a missing person, things going missing. The sub plots were intriguing, with the main character having a little romance going on and the backgrounds of the other characters were unique, each had their own personality, one I found to be quite funny. My head was spinning with theories, did so and so do this? If so and so did it then what about this? But they couldn’t have done because this other thing happened! It was hard to get everything to add up and eventually I ended up giving up on what I thought was going to happen and just let the book take me where it wanted me to go.
How did you feel about this book? If you’re thinking about reading it what questions do you have? Did you like the romantic subplots or did you think it was too much?
