☆ Into the Water ñ Download by ✓ Paula Hawkins congratulations, 2017 goodreads choice winner in best mystery thriller oooh, goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best mystery what will happen review posted at los angeles review of books here this for L.
A review of books and they sent me a finished book instead of an ARC these britches i have become too big for them This is not an easy book to get into Lots of diverse characters and you are left trying to suss out who s who and what is happening and why so many people don t seem to like Nel and are glad she s dead But the book does grab you You only see glimpses, back and forth, but they are fascinating, shimmering glimpses, like trying to determine what s underneath the water Hawkins excels at keeping the reader off balance There are twists throughout I liked the premise Nel is the latest death in the drowning pool Girls and women have either been put to death or killed themselves here for centuries Her death appears a suicide, as did the girl s before her her daughter s best friend So the police are trying to ascertain what actually happened They keep catching everyone in lies, so
5 stars rounded down after consideration It s almost inevitable that this book will be compared to The Girl on the Train, which is a pretty flattering testament to the magnitude of a book s success Into the Water, however, stands on its own and easily separates itself from its notable predecessor This story is unique and its large cast of characters are bold and distinguishable The only commonalities I found are ones I went into this book anticipating phenomenal writing and a wide spread of mystery The tone was a chilling blend of eery, dark, and haunting held steadily to the end, creating a world that was easy to get lost in However, even with these treasured factors at play, I didn t end up loving this one as much as I d imagined As compelling as the foundation was, after a whil When I first started reading this much awaited second novel by Paula Hawkins, I was so impressed by her ability to create such an eerie, chilling description of what I had hoped was a taste of what was to come reminiscent of old, black and white, British movies I remember wondering at the time she was writing, if she might have been imagining this book becoming another movie That s how it began to feel too much attention was given to the details of the surroundings.
The author gives a quick introduction to each of the 10 characters This is about five than I can comfortably keep track of In between these characters, chapters of a book being written by one of them is added in throughout the storyline on previous drowning victims, which also adds to the confusion Into the Water is about who drowned, when they drowned, and why they drowned After bouncing me around from one character to t Ummmmmm.
I wouldn t recommend listening to a book for the first time on audio with 6,695 POV s I may read the physical book and see if I like it I just can t like this book at this time It switched so many times between dates and people that I wanted to throw the book Well, audio on the tablet across the room I would never have gotten the audio if the summary would have said there are 1500 people in the book Sigh The group of narrators were good though Now that I think about it, I might not re read it I don t feel like reading about rapists and a bastard that drowns a cat Seems everyone and things get drowned or something I guess The Drowning Pool is a good name for the river, lake, water Whatever My friends seem to all be half n half There are 2 stars, 3 stars and 4 stars So, I guess it s whatever you like it don t Thank you to www.
uk for my ARC for which I have given an honest review Nel Abbot was found dead in the river, just a few short months after the death of her daughter s best friend Katie in similar circumstances Nel had lived in Mill House by the river her entire life, and most of her memories pretty much revolved around this dark and forbidding body of water, particularly The Drowning Pool It s a place of secrets, mysteries and witchcraft Nel was completely obsessed with stories of troublesome women who had lost their lives in the Drowning Pool including a 14 year old girl pronounced as a witch during the Witchfinder Trials in the seventeenth century.
Nel leaves behind a daughter, 15 year old Lena who appears to harbour secrets of her own, and she s just one of many in this small town of Beckford It s a small town with big secrets.
The tragedy brings Nel s sister Jules bac

From Witch ordeal trials, to blame girls women of men s infidelity.

And Forgiveness 10 Paula Hawkins did a great work this time, much better I guess from The Girl on the Train here s In The Last Days Before Her Death, Nel Called Her Sister Jules Didn T Pick Up The Phone, Ignoring Her Plea For Help Now Nel Is Dead They Say She Jumped And Jules Has Been Dragged Back To The One Place She Hoped She Had Escaped For Good, To Care For The Teenage Girl Her Sister Left Behind But Jules Is Afraid So Afraid Of Her Long Buried Memories, Of The Old Mill House, Of Knowing That Nel Would Never Have Jumped And Most Of All She S Afraid Of The Water, And The Place They Call The Drowning Pool Find my full review here book was, unfortunately, a disappointment to me Convoluted plotting, WAY too many characters to keep track of, and an overall lack of suspense made for a less than engaging read I m sure many readers will enjoy this one, but if you re looking for a psychological thriller with the addictive pacing shocking plot twists of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, I wouldn t recommend this one.
