    Well here we are again I've been hit or miss with Ruth Ware's novels since she broke onto the scene and while I wasn't a huge fan of her first 3 books I really connected well with The Death of Mrs Westaway and The Turn of the Key Finding out that Ms Ware has a true calling in telling stories of modern gothic suspense I assumed she would stay this route at least for awhile but it seems she's come full circle back around to her roots I have no desire to be mean or personally attack the author so I'll keep this brief One by One reads like a debut locked room thriller with a large cast where I am expected to care about a made up social media app where followers can anonymously creep on what music their favorite celebrities are listening to 👀👀👀 Unfortunately I felt that the murderer was blatantly obvious from the moment that they were introduced which is a real shame and I didn't really find myself caring about any of the characters as we don't really get a chance to know any of them relatively well along the way and we are constantly fed information like how many followers they have At this point I would gladly read another gothic mystery from the author but I think this is where I part ways with the author's stories beyond that scope Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy

    Snoop is the app everyone is talking about With Snoop you can snoop on the music that celebrities your friends and even your crush is listening to in real time AnonymouslySo when the Snoop team visits a ski chalet in France to iron out some big decisions and they start dying one by one? Well I was all over it This is my favorite kind of bookAs much as I loved the first half I had two issues 1 There were five shareholders five company employees and two chalet employees to keep track of and they were all introduced nearly at once I had to take a photo of the introductions on my iPhone to keep them straight at first I never really have this problem it was a lot of peopleAnd 2 I felt everything pointed to the killer almost from the beginning I was waiting for a twist or for my suspicions to be a red herring but it was exactly who it seemed it would be although the why was really goodOverall this is definitely worth the minor frustrations but it's a 35 for me Thank you to Ruth Ware the publisher and Edelweiss for giving me a DRC in exchange for an honest review

    Bored to TearsOne by One is a thrillermystery about a corporate staff retreat at a ski chalet that goes horribly awry resulting in members of the group being killed off “one by one”A group of technology executives arrive at a French Ski Chalet but not all make it out alive They are fighting to decide whether or not to sell the company Alliances are formed and the atmosphere is rife with tension When a natural disaster occurs the group must fight to survive but there’s a murderer amongst them making it difficult to do soWarning Harsh review aheadI had a lot of issues with this book and was constantly uestioning if Ruth Ware actually wrote it I am going to limit my gripes to my top 5 issuesIssue #1 The number of characters and lack of development There are too many characters to keep track of none of whom I really cared enough about to pay much attention Some of the characters just fall off and are barely mentioned again while others play a prominent role Some are only distinguished by hair color others have no distinguishing ualities or features Most of the characters are whiny and entitled and I was hoping they would all die Erin and Liz are the only two characters who were developed but they both fell flat for meIssue #2 The narrative Liz and Erin are the narrators Liz a former Snoop employee now holds the power as her ownership of 2 shares in the company makes her the deciding vote on whether or not to sell Erin is the chalet hostess who is hiding from her past We don’t know much about either one except for their Snoop username and number of followers who cares I didn’t find either to be a compelling narrator but they had potential Both constantly tell what was happening versus allowing the reader to see what was happening which took away all the possibilities for tension and creepiness to develop Further nothing really happens The plot is dragged out andt even after the first major event it continues to dragIssue #3 The abundance of superfluous details Pages and pages are taken up with technological details about how Snoop functions as well as on avalanches and skiing These details don’t add much to the plot they just added to my boredomIssue #4 The killer It is way too obvious from the start who the killer is I was hoping I was wrong and that there would be a twist but no I thought about DNF’ing due to my boredom but the possibility of a twist kept me going I was sorely disappointed Issue #5 The ending The ski chase showdown between the killer and the protagonist had me laughing inappropriately After the killer has been identified and taken care of the book continues to drag on I didn’t get the final pages Was the introduction of Choon supposed to mean anything sinister? I get the significance but seriously this is how this book ends? PointlessI have loved several of Ware’s books and had high expectations for One By One but sadly this was a major disappointment I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    Predictably lame and boring A paint by numbers “suspense” novel that fails to offer any shock and awe Given my history with the author’s work not even the dud conclusion managed to evoke surprise Ruth Ware’s work—the few books I’ve dabbled in over the years—hasn’t left me with an overly positive impression My experiences with her work hit or miss most finding a home in the latter category Regardless some warped sense of missing out bred from the enthusiasm I’ve seen for her work continues to drag me down this tortuous rabbit hole No I refuse to sacrifice any additional time on her lackluster storytellingWare's sixth novel brings readers to the French Alps for a stay at a mountainside chalet hosting a Snoop corporate retreat A motley crew intent on bringing their tech startup public and relishing in the subseuent success Their claim to fame an app that allows users to stalk or Snoop the music others are listening to at any moment Who cares? But I digressI won’t get into the nitty gritty of the plot because there isn’t much nit or grit to be had I’ll also refrain from any introduction to the characters because the moment my eyes met one person in particular I just knew Knew this person would be responsible for the antics of the trip and for picking off fellow chalet guests one by one Ware phones this one in making for an uninspired and grating experienceThings in particular that tanked this novel for me the 1 obviousness of the killer’s identity from go 2 removal of almost the entire cast around the 60% mark 3 killer's hackneyed revelation 4 unsatisfying ease in which things are wrapped up and 5 incessant drivel strung across the final eight chapters offering nothing to the storylineNeedless to say this is not a book I enjoyed nor one I can recommend Ware's approach often involves taking an Agatha Christie novel and molding it into something of her own One by One an iteration of Christie’s And Then There Were None If you’re looking for a high stakes edge of your seat lost in the snowy wilderness plot that pays homage to And Then There Were None I highly recommend checking out Loreth Anne White’s latest novel In the Dark The characterization stunning backdrop and puzzling plot—catapulted by White’s compelling words—are sure to leave a lasting impression Thank you to Scout Press for the copy furnished in exchange for sharing my honest thoughts

    Because the world does not have enough social media apps Snoop is on the scene to allow you to anonymous listen to the music that your friends relatives favorite celebrities and social media influences are listening to People can snoop in on you as well It's a fun way to discover new music and be able to sit back and listen along with celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Beyoncé as they are listening to their favorite musicWhen the developers of Snoop and their staff arrive at a ski chalet in France staff members Erin and Danny think it will be business as usual Danny is there to Cook and Erin will keep the chalet and their rooms clean and ensure that the guest has a good timeWhen the staff at Snoop leave to go skiing before the impending storm arrives all seems to be as well as can be expected There is tension amongst the shareholders and they will be discussing their options but first they will ski blow off some steam and have some fun Soon their group of eight becomes seven when one member does not come back Then an avalanche hits and things really begin to go downhill from there Soon the tensions rise as the cold sets in Not only do they not know who they can trust but members of their group are also dying and not from the coldThis book is told through the POV of Erin the chalet employee and Liz the socially awkward minor shareholder in Snoop Both have distinct personalities and thought processes As the cold looms and they wait to be rescued suspicion and tension mounts I found this book to be an enjoyable read in a fabulous setting A ski chalet an avalanche no electricity thus no WIFI They are really left to their own devices while trying to determine who amongst them is a killer What should be a cozy and relaxing work getaway becomes a nightmareWill you guess the killer? Is anyone safe? Who has the most to gain from the murders? Who has the most to lose? This felt like a classic whodunit with a very apt title of One by One as the guests are dying one by one Some may guess the killer; some may be surprised Either way I found this one to be a fun whodunit in a great location I love it when there is no escape and no way of calling for help Where do you hide? How do you stay safe? Heck how do you stay warm? If the elements don't get you the killer certainly mightAnother enjoyable book by Ware Some things I found a little unrealistic such as having only two staff members on duty at a prestigious ski chalet Erin is twenty two and although she does come off as very mature it seemed unlikely that she would be put in charge of such a high end place But those are minor things that I was willing to overlooks and sit back and enjoyI received a copy of this book from the publisher and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions are my own

    Publication September 8th 2020One By One by Ruth Ware dumps twelve characters on you pretty uickly so you need a cheat sheet or a sharp mind to keep track of the characters I started the book when I was hungry and tired and had to uit reading to eat a meal and take a nap before I could keep the characters straight But once I got them into my head I kept a firm grip on who was who Erin and Danny are the staff at a fancy mountain chalet and this week they are hosting co workers and one ex co worker of a very successful new music related app called Snoop Four of the Snoop employees and the ex Snoop employee are the shareholders in the company and there is going to be a vote to decide whether to sell the companyshareholders are deeply divided on the issue and it's going to be up to Liz the minority shareholder ex co worker to break the impasse Before there can be a vote people are murdered or disappear and this all is intertwined with a massive avalanche stranding the entire group knowing that there is a murderer in their midst The story is told from the perspectives of Erin a member of the chalet staff and Liz the co workershareholder that left Snoop under mysterious circumstances The story seems to move along uickly in some ways but slowly in others There is a lot of reflection on Erin's part as she tries to understand the dynamics of the guests and how frumpy Liz even fits in with the rest of the company employees There is some action but then there is sitting around as people wonder if they are ever going to be rescued At some point we know who done it and have to see if they are going to do it again Thank you to Gallery BooksScout Press and NetGallery for this ARC

    Ruth Ware's latest offering is a terrific light and entertaining thrill of a ride a great opportunity to lose yourself for a few hours with a cuppa and forget the troubles of the world Set in the perfect atmospheric remote and isolated location of beautiful snowy mountains we have a locked room mystery with a number of classic golden age of crime tropes as an avalanche leaves a diverse set of characters without power and cut off from the outside world whilst a terrifying killer begins to murder them Ware gives us a modern twisted version of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None A tech corporate retreat is organised at a chalet in a exclusive ski resort Snoop an App that allows a person to see what music others are listening to the guests need to decide its future amidst conflict over a buyoutThe narrative is related primarily from the perspective of the outsider Erin an observant chalet girl there to clean and facilitate the visitors as a guide and instructor and the socially awkward key minority investor Liz In a tense and suspenseful story Eva disappears turning up dead and each of the guests look at each other with suspicion and distrust as one by one they are being killed by a murderer within their group whilst being trapped in the chalet by an avalanche Whilst much of the characterisation is on the sketchy side this is a wonderfully engaging read as the pace uickens considerably during the last third of the book Recommended for those who love the classic golden age of crime and Agatha Christie in particular Many thanks to Random House Vintage for an ARC

    BOOM SHAKALAKA said Ruth Ware when she finished writing this book OH HELL YES said myself and so will you after reading this book A fancy chalet atop a French mountain rented by a company for an employee retreat Things are moving along when the group heads out to ski Until not everyone returns to the chalet one of their party is missing As if that isn’t stressful enough how about adding in an avalanche that cuts off all communication and seals you inside the chalet Want ? How about finding one of the employees dead in their room Was this person killed? If so who killed this person? Why? Is there a killer amongst them?A whodunnit mystery turned thriller near the end This was my first time reading Ruth Ware She definitely made a new fan out of me with this one I was blown away This was absolutely so much fun to read satisfyingly intense and I did not want it to end I have always loved the stories where each character is slowly picked off until the big reveal at the end However I must admit that I generally find the ending to be disappointing compared to the rest of the book This was simply not the case in “One by One” I loved every part including the ending Ware's story telling skills really shined for me in this novel I cannot wait to pick up another book by this author Well done Thank you to Simon Schuster via Edelweiss for the digital review copy

    HAPPY PUBLICATION DAYI am a fan of Ms Ware’s writing and I was highly anticipating this novel What I have truly realized with this book is that Ms Ware always has “something” that will turn a novel around and make you second guess where you think the plot is going Most of the book points to a killer that is trying to make a profit through the outcome of the company but is that really what is motivating this killer? Think about this you will thank meTruthfully the beginning of this book drove me crazy This was a buddy read and my friends can tell you I wasn’t happy about the GIANT cast of characters that we have to keep track of I really had to take notes on each I think this is the weakest part of the book The co workers and stockholders are together to enjoy some time off but also to address the issue of whether they should allow a buy out of the company There has been a decline in subscribers to the app and money is running out Eva and Topher are the two major stockholders but there is an ex employee Liz who has a 2% share We aren’t sure whose vote she will follow Eva or Topher because they divided into two camps right off the batThe explanation of what the company SNOOP really was and did was a little hard to follow Each chapter began stating who the character was their Snoop ID what they were Listening To the #of snoopers and the # of Snoopscribers WHAT YOU SAY It took a while for that info to sink in I can tell you this don’t worry too much about the explanation of the company it isn’t really important which surprised me I thought there would be SNOOP interaction but the WI FI at the chalet is down because of incoming storms Dang that would have been interestingAt the chalet we meet Erin the “do it all” coordinator for this event and Danny an incredibly talented chef These two are the most interesting members of the cast of characters for me They were also probably the most well developedAfter the first morning of skiing there is a person missing This immediately begins to get the book going as to what happened Was it an accident are there witnesses as to where they last saw this person? We really only get to know and ultimately understand the narrators Erin and Liz Their characters are described in their personal and professional lives I enjoyed both narrators euallyThe last third of the novel is the strongest and this is what turned this from a 3 to a 4 book for me We have an avalanche a storm continuing and people turn up dead Some people decide they have to go for help still others are missing and someone has to stay at the chalet in case help finally comes This part of the book was the most fun and felt like a uick ride with a satisfying if somewhat unbelievable endingA strong point of this book is the location and the descriptions of the chalet the mountains the coziness of the fire I’m not a skier but can still relate to the beautiful setting I do admit that this was somewhat disappointing read for me The premise of the novel people stuck together in a house mansion chalet cottage whatever has been done too many times By the title and the blurb it’s pretty obvious that people will be dying ‘One by One”I did enjoy the book and will look forward to Ms Ware’s next novelI received an ARC of this novel from the publisher through Edelweiss
