Into the water by Paula Hawkins

The Girl in the Train made me long for this second stand alone novel by the acclaiming writer Paula Hawkins. I admit I had huge expectations, yet not prepared for the witchcraft part and the intricate development that made so many “troublesome women” drown/be drown Into the Water.

I was surprised I could actually make it to the end of the book. This confusing psychological thriller is full of riddles and muffled voices, poorly penned characters and two complex mysteries to solve. Now that is quite the tricky situation. Despite its boring style (slow narrative and many POVs) and the strangely disconnected links all over the place, despite the “wait a minute this guy said what previously?!” — this is still a page turner!
