Примечание редактора

A modern-day Agatha Christie…

A chilling tale of a corporate retreat gone wrong from mystery maven Ruth Ware (“The Woman in Cabin 10”, “The Turn of the Key,” “In a Dark Dark Wood”). When an avalanche leaves employees of a tech startup snowed in at a resort in the French Alps, terror takes over, wiping out any chance of bonding. One by one, each member of the group must fight to survive in what Booklist calls “[Agatha Christie’s] ‘And Then There Were None’ rendered for the twenty-first century.”

Описание

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
A claustrophobic spine-tingler.” —People
Not only do Ware’s novels wink at [Agatha] Christie in a saucy way, but Ware herself is turning out to be as ingenious and indefatigable as the Queen of Crime.” —The Washington Post

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Turn of the Key and In a Dark, Dark Wood returns with another suspenseful thriller set on a snow-covered mountain.

Getting snowed in at a luxurious, rustic ski chalet high in the French Alps doesn’t sound like the worst problem in the world. Especially when there’s a breathtaking vista, a full-service chef and housekeeper, a cozy fire to keep you warm, and others to keep you company. Unless that company happens to be eight coworkers…each with something to gain, something to lose, and something to hide.

When the cofounder of Snoop, a trendy London-based tech start-up, organizes a weeklong trip for the team in the French Alps, it starts out as a corporate retreat like any other: PowerPoint presentations and strategy sessions broken up by mandatory bonding on the slopes. But as soon as one shareholder upends the agenda by pushing a lucrative but contentious buyout offer, tensions simmer and loyalties are tested. The storm brewing inside the chalet is no match for the one outside, however, and a devastating avalanche leaves the group cut off from all access to the outside world. Even worse, one Snooper hadn’t made it back from the slopes when the avalanche hit.

As each hour passes without any sign of rescue, panic mounts, the chalet grows colder, and the group dwindles further…one by one.

    The story seems like it might be fine. I could not listen to the audiobook. The narrator's voices were very annoying.
  • (4/5)
    Classic Ruth Ware! Atmospheric, slow build that really took off mid tale and kept me on the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed this story and Imogen Church is a fantastic narrator
  • (4/5)
    A good psychological thriller by Ruth Ware written in the voices of two women. Narrator Imogen Church does a great job enacting the characters and their emotions. My main criticism is Ware ‘s ad nauseam usage of the word f—-k to express strong emotions. It is as though no other word exists but this one. While the author deftly builds suspense and psychological tension, her writing and usage of words at times remain quite archaic and wanting.

    It was drawn out a lot honestly it could have been shorter. But overall I enjoyed the ending.
  • (5/5)
    This book was a little slower in the beginning but once it got going, it kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn't read fast enough!

    I'm sure you could figure out who the murderer is if you wanted to, but I enjoyed learning as all the pieces were put together.

    Perfect book for a cold winter day, especially with snow falling outside and a fire crackling in the fireplace!
  • (5/5)
    I would listen to anything read by Imogen Church. Also, the book was great. Thanks, Ruth Ware, for another killer whodunnit.
  • (5/5)
    I always enjoy a good Ruth ware book. Except the potty words. This was really good. Had me hooked from the get go!
  • (3/5)
    First 2/3 of the book were great. The last 1/3 was a real slog.
  • (5/5)
    This was very good and interesting. Unsure of the murderer until the end.
  • (3/5)
    Confusing. I expected it to be more of a who done it!
  • (5/5)
    This book has the claustrophobic feel of a country house mystery with the added drama of an avalanche and a fairly surprising murderer. The narrator is absolutely fantastic on the audiobook.
  • (3/5)
    I enjoyed this book until the end. That is, until that point after the bad guy is discovered, contained and brought to justice, when the author does a brief “after the party” recollections and rest of the story resolution of the characters’ situations. It was more editorial preaching than story telling and extremely boring. My suggestion is that you read until you find the bad guys properly dispatched and then close the book. I doubt I will follow this author.
  • (2/5)
    A simplistic yet absurd plot, coupled with melodramatic narration (by a good narrator given poor direction) make it a long yawn.
  • (5/5)
    Good old fashioned mystery. I Liked the thought provoking plot.
  • (3/5)
    The book is ritten from the point of view of 2 characters and they alternate between chapters, so I liked that here. The landscape and atmosphere (mountains, avalanche, isolation) are also well described in this book. In the beginning, I wasn’t so hooked with the story. I feel it took some time to get to the first disappearance/murder. But from there, the story became more interesting and intriguing. At one point, I could no longer manage the anxiety I felt. And although I read it in broad daylight, I still felt a lot of unease and my nerves were on edge (everything made me freak out) and I like it when a book does that. Anyway, in my opinion, the excitement went a bit down at the end of the story and it was somewhat too long.

    Positive side: Imogen Church is by far the best audiobook narrator. This is not one of Ware’s best. It is reminiscent of an Agatha Christie but with the “spin” of a music app start-up company. The conceit of “Snoop I.d. blah blah blah” at the beginning of EVERY chapter gets very tedious. It’s a bit over written, with characters talking A LOT about their feelings, and especially after the killer is revealed and the situation is resolved, without giving away too much here. I think Ward’s other books are more engaging and successful.

    And Then There Were None + The Guest List

    10 current/former employees of a booming UK music app startup (for those of you from the States, think Silicon Valley yuppies) decide to take a holiday at a French chalet to make the biggest decision of their lives. When an avalanche hits, they and the two workers start to see what lies in the heart of (wo)men..

    I enjoyed this book. It’s my first Ruth Ware (and won’t be my last). What would have made it a 5-star for me was structuring the book a bit differently so that it wasn’t obvious from before the halfway point “whodunit.” I don’t want to say much more than that for spoilers, but I think you’ll see when you get there. I did love the way she fleshed out the characters, and the way she opened each chapters.

    Buy this for yourself or someone looking for a no -so-cozy mystery. If you’re twisted, get it for someone about to go on their first ski trip.

    Such a good book! Very suspenseful and easy to read!
  • (4/5)
    Not her best book by far but still good. Couldn’t put it down.
  • (4/5)
    I've always enjoyed Ruth Ware's writing. This book has a good twist in it and a good ending but it did feel a little long in the end after the major climax. Overall I would recommended this book to friends.
  • (5/5)
    Great, fantastic build up, an unexpected twist and a satisfying ending. Definitely one of my favorite authors
  • (4/5)
    I enjoyed this audiobook. I wish it had not repeatedly announced each person’s social media name and number of followers. Except for that, great book.
  • (3/5)
    It's just ok, not that interesting and very much like The Guest List.
  • (4/5)
    Not my favorite by Ruth Ware, but I did enjoy the story. I guess my biggest issue was that isn’t way all that much of a mystery who the killer was. I wanted more of a plot twist as was the case in the other novels. Still a good book and the narrator is wonderful.
  • (5/5)
    A little slow at first but it picked up quickly. Very good!
  • (3/5)
    It wasn’t bad but I figured it out very quickly. The fact that she only tells the story from the perspective of two characters basically gives it away.
  • (5/5)
    I loved this book because of the mystery and intrigue. I loved the characters and their roles in the story. I loved the attention to relevance of the times we live in. I loved that even the insignificant things mattered.

    I couldn’t put the book down until I finished it completely. A fascinating listen. The woman who read the book is one of the best I have listened to. Recommend this book whole heartedly.

    well written, an old theme w/ a modern twist; but with all the fantastic hi-tech, the resort has not any "low tech" provisions (2-way radio, power generator, gas, water?) Not very realistic. All mountain resorts that i know have their own provisions way before the internet era. But literary license, i guess.
    (Also i guessed who the murderer is in the middle; was pretty obvious to me who has the most opportunity;
    still it plays out \kept me interested till the end.)

    Sorry, not one of my favorites from Ruth Ware, whom I love. I found it pretty predicable and I wanted more details on the characters backstories. Looking forward to the next one. Love the narrator, who always does a good job.
