I just finished Into the Water by Paula Hawkins and man oh man I hate to say it but I wasn’t a huge fan! The word I want to use to describe the book is: BLAND
The book was okay but not nearly as good as Girl on a Train and I was honestly thankful when it was over. The jumping of the characters had me all confused and it just didn’t flow like it should. After reading, I went to the book forum on Goodread and I found that I wasn’t alone! Many people didn’t quite understand the ending and had loads of questions about who killed who, etc. I know it’s a big
no, no to compare an author’s previous book to a new one but this book was hyped up so much! Every bookstore I went to or book Pinterest board I visited showcased the book and stated it was a must read; therefore it is only right that the book lived up to its expectation lol!
Here are what a few people are saying on Goodread:
Therefore drum roll please! I give this book 3 STARS!
I gave it three only because the book did get pretty interesting towards the end which did cause me to finish it. Also, as you all know, I am a lover of characters and I became a fan of the toughness of the main character Lena.
I don’t want to give anything away (because I love yall so much!) so I won’t go into detail about certain things in the book since a lot of people have told me they plan to read it. HOWEVER if anyone has read this please provide your opinion, let’s talk about it!
