Into the Water

Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Publisher: Penguin Audio

Date: May 2017

Duration: 11 hours 33 minutes


The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller and global phenomenon The Girl on the Train returns with Into the Water, her addictive new novel of psychological suspense.

A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.

Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother's sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from a place to which she vowed she'd never return.

With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present.

Beware a calm surface you never know what lies beneath.

  • Jillian G

    It was a bit confusing keeping up with all the characters, but it still kept you on edge wondering what happens next. Twist of love, sadness, and friendships. I give it a thumbs up!

  • Sally M

    What a mess this book is! Too many characters, wandering disjointed storyline that tried too hard. Hawkins is a good writer but you wonder what got into her here. Unlikable characters and confusing narration made for a lo--ooonnng read

  • Nicole S

    Paula Hawkins is a great writer but her prose doesn't make up for the disappointing story-line & character development. It was difficult to keep up with all the characters especially via audiobook. Overall, too many weak characters with too little development. The mystery is lacking and the "plot twists" are predictable. The narration was great.

  • Ammara W

    Fantastic storyline, love the twists and turns. Really kept me guessing to the end.

  • Chelsea D

    Great book, kept me listening until the very end! The character of Jules is actually my favorite. Can't wait to see if they make this one into a film like her other novel

  • Ginger R

    This is a hard book to listen to. I prefer to listen while I drive and workout. The plot and writing were excellent. The character changes were difficult to keep up with during a long run.

  • Jeanne D

    Really loved the book. First time listening to an audio book on my road trip and it was amazing! Made the trip fly by. Helped that the book was so intriguing.

  • Doreen B

    It was difficult keeping track of the various characters, had I been reading this story myself it wouldn't have been an issue. Not sure if I really liked this story or not, it never "grabbed" me. I stayed with it though, to see if I I had figured things out right. All in all it was OK.

  • Sheila M

    A great novel that kept you guessing until the very end.

  • Anita B

    Difficult to follow. Hard to assimilate the cast of characters. I found it frustrating until the last 2 hours, when it finally came together.
