Into the Water Paula Hawkins

51e2K1OZKXL._AC_US218_.jpgPub: Black Swan

Just days before her sister plunged to her death, Jules ignored her call.

Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules must return to her sister’s house to care for her daughter, and to face the mystery of Nel’s death.

But Jules is afraid. Of her long-buried memories, of the old Mill House, of this small town that is drowning in secrecy . . .

And of knowing that Nel would never have jumped.

 

This has to be my  favourite read of the year so far.

I literally did not want it to end and I would love to read more of Libby, Nickie and the generations of witches that have lived and passed since.

This novel is a joy. it is filled with suspense and with characters I genuinely cared about, I was hooked by every page.

I loved ‘Girl on the Train’ but this novel is so much better, and Paula Hawkins has written another hit, I loved how each character each had something to add to the tale. I loved the slow pace and I especially loved how the tale unfolded and deftly delivered it’s secrets about the deaths of the ‘troublesome women’.

Louise’s grief as a mother is beautifully portrayed and I truly felt for her, her bitterness and triumph were also fairly placed.

Written in four parts,which are all very different, you really get a lot of story for your money.  The first part was centered very much on the ‘Drowning Pool and it’s purpose and the second part is a why and wherefore.

The sadness and tragedy is portrayed in this half and honestly I could wax lyrical about this book forever. It is a book that the author made me think about, and I totally related both personally and as a reader. Needless to say I loved ‘Into The Water’ it is the novel I will be recommending to everyone.
