Read Review
Into The Water
by Paula Hawkins
From The Jacket:A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged. Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother’s sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she’d never return. With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present. Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath.
The strength of this story is with the dynamic relationships the author develops; she has an amazing grasp of the human condition and presents a lot of detail on the psychology of suicide and how it affects different people. The premise of the story will also grab readers; why do so many women end up dead in a local river? The main problem with this book is the outstanding success of Paula Hawkin’s first book “ A Girl On The Train.” This is not the psychological, thriller, sequel, which unfortunately what most people are expecting. I know couldn’t wait to read it for this very reason. In fact, there is very little suspense in this story. It’s good, but if you are seeking a thriller, best skip this book.
