Today I bring you a book review.
The book is: Into The Water by Paula Hawkins. It’s her second novel, and it’s published by Penguin Random House.
The story starts with Jules going back to her childhood hometown because of the recent death of her sister, which she ignored for many years. Now she had to take care of her teenage niece. People say that her sister jumped but she doesn’t believe that. Jules is afraid of the old Mill House, of the memories buried in Beckford and mostly she is afraid of the water and the Drowning Pool which is supposed to be a place to get rid of troublesome women.
I really enjoyed this book and the way it’s written.
What I would highlight about it are the plot twists, right when you least expect them. Also the coming and going from the present to the past is not as present as the first book of the author but it’s still there and I really appreciate it.
I love how much women power is in it, and how she made the youngest character (Lena) and the oldest (Nicki) as equally important, not caring about the age.
I found really interesting the way she makes you go into all the character minds, even the not so ethic ones.
The end took my breath away and left my mouth opened.
Maybe the only thing that I didn’t like that much was the lack of information about, the so many times mentioned town, Beckford.
Other than that this book is amazing, and I could feel the same creepy vibes that I had on the first novel by Hawkins.
10/10 book, definitely on my faves shelf.
Have a great Friday. I will come back with another post very soon.
