Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

No picture for this one! My reviews are becoming dull without them!

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins; 389 pages


Nel Abbot has always been fascinated by the victims of the Bedford Drowning Pool. And then she became one herself. Now her family is forced to deal with a daunting question. Did she jump herself or was she pushed to her death?

My thoughts:

What an odd book.

I was super confused at the start of the book. There were tons of different storylines and characters and references to the past. Towards the middle it definitely got easier to follow.

The end is what made the book good though. There were some things I totally saw coming but there were others that were a total surprise. Especially the reveal at the end! This book is why you need to read until the very last page!

The characters were okay. Some grew on me as the story went on, some didn’t. I liked them better in this book than her last one.

After reading this I’m still not totally wowed by her writing but I would still read another of her books in the future.
