Author: Paula Hawkins
This is fantastic! Absolutely brilliant!
If you have read The Girl On the Train then I am pretty sure you will enjoy this one too. I have enjoyed it more than The Girl On the Train. I don't know whether this is because I understand Paula Hawkins writing style or if it is just better, but found the writing of this one brilliant.
When I first started to read Into the Water I thought maybe I would have needed a notebook to keep track of all the characters. No need. It wasn't long and I was so into the plot that I knew every character and where they belonged. I had to know what each character was up to. Where Paula Hawkins was leading me with them. Who did what. It seemed like the whole community had lost the plot, literally! By the end, the outcome was totally different from whom I thought. Having made that statement, I think at times I had blamed nearly every character for some part of some event.
Right down to the very end, this book took me on a roller coaster ride of guessing. All I can say is this is a brilliant piece of literary work and I can't wait to see what Paula Hawkins come up with next.
