Ruth Ware’s 3 Favorite Books
I have to pick an Agatha Christie I think as she was a huge inspiration for The Woman in Cabin 10, so maybe And Then There Were None, which is one of her best, certainly one of her darkest.
Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith has to be one of the best crime novels ever- it’s just beautifully constructed and written, with characters so real you can practically pluck them off the page, and the premise is one of those ideas that just inspires pure jealousy of the “why the hell didn’t I think of that?” type.
And to finish up, something completely different, Hons and Rebels by Jessica Mitford is one of my desert island books. It’s just so indescribably funny, and moving, and matter-of-fact- and it captures a moment in history with effortless lightness of touch, and painful precision.
