Need to learn characters in Part 1 before it makes sense. Parts 3 and 4 are the best.

The book started out great but the last 100 pages became a little watered down. In my opinion i felt like there were too many character perspectives so that too felt muddled. It was a fast and easy read. Overall it was not the best but it wasn't the worst.

This book was ok but not anywhere near Girl On A Train. The characters all seemed to blend into each other. There was no "connection" to sny character.

The drowning pool has claimed many lives over the years, most assumed to be suicides. But are they? Part ghost story, part dysfunctional family saga and murder mystery, told in many voices this book keeps you guessing. A little hard keeping the characters straight early on, as all principles are introduced in the first 50 pages, but press on. And pay attention to those early scenes, they foreshadow the big reveal at the end.

This book is very intriguing and has many plot twists and turns. The story is told from many different points of view but is easy to follow. Great read.

Great read! Another amazing book that begs you to read it all in one sitting!

This is a twisting, turning, spooky, wonderfully atmospheric thriller. I liked it more than The Girl on the Train -- where Paula Hawkins's first book shows you the perspectives of several outsiders, this one allows you to become fully immersed in the lives of the people who live in Beckford, a strange town with stranger secrets. It actually reminded me quite a bit of Twin Peaks -- there's the outsider cop, lots of teenagers with secrets, people who are not what they seem, a town with a very spooky history, and a mysterious old woman who watches the goings-on from her window. If someone is looking for a duplicate of Girl on the Train, they might be disappointed, because this isn't quite as much of a straightforward thriller as Hawkins's first novel. Like the river that runs through the town, it's a bit slower-moving. But also like the river, it's full of secrets, surprises, and twists -- a patient reader will find it richly rewarding.

Kept me hooked from page one. Loved the various points of view and the lack of information given to the reader until the last possible second.

Although I did enjoy her last book, I found this one to be a bit tedious. Too many characters and too many story lines. It was hard to keep everyone straight. Sorry I spent the money on it.

As reading, i felt as if the author was running me around a dark, mystical village. I got tired of it, so the climax was a yawn.

I had such high hopes since I loved her other book... This was a major disappointment. I couldn't keep track of all the characters, stuck it out since. I paid 14.99

I struggled to get through this book! Had I not paid for it, I wouldn't¿ have finished reading it. It was so unrealistic and boring .

First thing: I haven’t read The Girl on the Train so I picked up this book and just went in because I felt like a good mystery. So was it any good? Yes and no. There were several story arcs going on in this novel which was alright and easy to follow. I’d rather enjoyed reading most of them. I didn’t enjoy reading about Julia though. It’s not because I don’t sympathize with what she went through, it must have been horrible. I just didn’t really like her much as a character. There were moments where she was completely weak and useless. However, I’m glad of her outcome and of her development. Of all the characters; Lena and Julia developed the most. In the beginning of the novel, I found it a little hard to follow at first. Each chapter is told in the point of view of another character and rotates all throughout the story. So you have to be aware of who’s who early in the story. There’s also flashbacks involved (those aren’t hard to follow though.) I’d have to say, the character I enjoyed reading the most was Lena because of her fiery personality and her attitude (typical teenage angst but it was well done.) The rest of the characters were all right to read but don’t really produce enough of a presence to make such a huge impact on the book. Patrick, Mark, and Sean make your teeth grind though. The three of them being odious spineless bastages who need to get their due. Unfortunately...well...one of them gets their due. (Won’t spoil it any further.) Plot wise, it’s a subtle slow moving mystery. The reader is kept guessing and although it may seem obvious as to who has done it, there’s more to just a whodunit. There’s a reasoning behind the deed that has taken place. There were few elements of some sort of supernatural characteristics in the plot but it’s nothing to be in awe about and it doesn’t really put any depth into the story or make the plot go further. It could be considered as just to fill in the blanks into the novel. Which I wasn’t too crazy about. I ended up finishing it because it wasn’t that bad, but it wasn’t the best I’ve read either. Would I recommend it? Not really. Worth the read? It’s all right. Some people may like this type of story some might not. (It has a feeling of a TV movie to it, in my opinion.) (less)

Enjoyed the read immensley! Could not wait to pick it up again when forced to stop. However I was expecting a twist and conclusion that would surprise me and tie everything together . Very disappointed in the rather expected ending that still left many loose ends. Henderson? Jeannie?

If you liked Girl on the Train or Gone Girl, you should like this.

Riveting , entertaining, a perfect way to pass time. But not the kind of book that sticks with u for years, not the type that u have to re-read, just so u can enter that spellbounding world again, not the book u have to re-read because it's so dense with a multiplicity of meanings that you know one pass through isn't enough, not the book that leaves a mark on you and becomes part of your identity .... but an enjoyable book...like a good movie ( and this book really would be) a good movie that u liked and thought was well done and satisfied the 2 hours u spent watching it, but not the type of movie that profoundly moved you .....but so few books can be that influential , most of the classics of corse, but it's rare to find a new one, but the hunt is always on, and this author has the potential to maybe just birth one of those master pieces sometime, perhaps if she can abandon this "person per chapter fourmula" .....all in all still worth the read, especially if all u r looking for is just quality entertainment...............

Definitely an interesting read. I was intrigued by the story, but to be completely honest - every time I started reading it was tough to keep on going. Too many character being introduced in the beginning. Even till the end of the book I had to take a second before starting a chapter to remember who that person was. I sympathize with Julia and what she went though, nightmare of a childhood, but again - to be completely honest - the book would still be good without her story in it. It brings nothing to the development of the story and explains nothing. Her character just keeps on remembering the past and does nothing all day. No use to the investigation or her niece. I personally think Julia's story about what she went through and how she lost her sister over it and finally coming face to face with her biggest fear can be a whole other book. And Into The Water will still be a good story with Julia just in the background as taking Lena in.

Lots of interesting characters , so initially the book can be a bit confusing . It's worth while to stay with it as the story gets better and better ! The ending is somewhat predictable , but still a well written novel.
