Pequena biografia
Ruth Ware (born 1977), alias for Ruth Warburton, is a British psychological crime thriller author. Her novels include In a Dark, Dark Wood (2015), The Woman in Cabin 10 (2016), The Lying Game (2017) and The Death of Mrs Westaway (2018). Both In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 were on the U.K.'s Sunday Times and The New York Times top ten bestseller lists. She is represented by Eve White of the Eve White Literary Agency. She switched to Ruth Ware to distinguish her crime novels from the young adult fantasy novels published under her name, Ruth Warburton.

Ruth Ware was born in 1977 and grew up in Lewes. She studied English at Manchester University, where she developed a fascination with Old English and Middle English texts.

Before her writing career, Ware worked as a waitress, a bookseller and a publicist. She also spent time in Paris, teaching English as a foreign language.

Ware now lives near Brighton.



A quasi homage to Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, with a modern twist on the story. Lyla is asked by Nico, her boyfriend, to go on a reality TV show, One Perfect Couple. Since her post-doc research is a bust, she plans to go for just 2 weeks, and figure a way to get booted from the show.
The couples are taken to a tropical island, but Nico fails on the first night's task and the staff take him away on a boat. The remaining couples are left on the island with one staff member. A terrible storm hits the island, and the 4 couples: Bayer and Angel, Dan and Santana, Joel and Romi, and Conor and Zana, plus Lyla must deal with the aftermath. They are stranded, and food and water is limited. People start dying, and there is something sinister at play.
A tense story.

Love Island meets Lord of the Flies in this intense thriller. Five couples head to an island in Indonesia to compete in a reality TV show. After a storm they find themselves stranded. Tension starts to build as food and water becomes scarce and when the contestants begin to die, it becomes a matter of survival. This is a compelling read where I didn’t know who to trust at first. The claustrophobic feeling of the island is really well depicted as is the paranoia. When the villain of the piece starts to be revealed, the suspense increases, the characters’ anxieties ratchet up and the pace escalates. It’s not my favourite book by Ruth Ware so far, but I still very much enjoyed it. It kept me turning the pages.… (mais)

Really good

this was a fun, fast paced ride. i figured the culprit pretty early on, which was unusual and disappointing but mostly didn't take away from the enjoyment. there is a bit of 'not a chance she could have done that' but no more than usual in a book like this, i guess. i felt a bit wary when i realized this was going to be as techy as it was, but she taught me all i needed to know to understand the stakes, and really made it work. she did use many of the same cliched phrases over and over again, so the writing could have been better, but this was still pretty fun.

it's been decades since i've seen it, but i think this is the same premise as the movie ghost? but updated for tech stuff and without the supernatural stuff.
