    FIVE STARS So, here's the thing. You can't really compare Ruth Ware to any contemporary writers. The pure "old-fashioned-ness" of her writing style is so refreshing that it comes across as modern. Weird, huh? You gotta go way back to find Ware's influences. Yep, that's Daphne Du Mau...

    First and foremost, I'm happy to say that RUTH WARE IS BACK! I've been a fan of Ruth Ware since Day 1. In a Dark, Dark Wood was such a good debut light-mystery novel and The Woman in Cabin 10 was one of my favorite mystery novels of all time. After my disappointment with The Lying Game...

    I love the bleakness in Ware's novels. I love her independent female protagonists, they don't need a man to rely on, or solve their problems, a lot different than the usual damsel in distress. The Death of Mrs Westaway was an exceptionally well-written book. We follow the story of ...

    *4+ stars. Twenty-one year old Harriet ?Hal? Westaway is desperately trying to hold her life together. Three years before, her mother was killed by a hit-and-run driver and Hal took over her tarot reading kiosk on the pier in Brighton to support herself. But during a hard financ...

    Ruth Ware has definitely proven her talent with The Death of Mrs. Westaway. Thoroughly developed characters, complex family dynamics, a gothic setting with plenty of engaging foreboding, and a mystery worthy of seasoned readers...it was excellent. I love Ruth Ware's storytelling and Th...

    DNF I am so happy that so many people really love this book. I did not. I've mentioned before that Ruth Ware is a hit or miss author for me. This one is a huge miss. I am so bored at 20% in that I could not care less what happens to Hal. All we know at this point in the book is ...
