Into The Water by Paula Hawkins touches a lot of serious, sensitive topics, and she handles them so well. Her portrayal of what secrets and misunderstandings bring about could be a warning to us all. Secrets do not stay buried.

I feel for all the lives forever changed.

I had some confusion switching to so many points of view, especially early on. My head was spinning, there is soooo much happening, so many angles, but Paula Hawkins wraps the story up nicely.

The slow fire burning of the title must surely be something that we all have within us to some degree. Those things that burn away at our very core over days, weeks, months, maybe years, and which threaten, with little warning, to ignite and take out all around them with their intense heat.

A Slow Fire Burning is a story of a tangled web of connections, some obvious and some not so. The map at the beginning shows where each major player lives and whilst there are men in this story, it's very much about the women. Laura, Miriam and Carla. Each with their own cross to bear. Laura and Miriam's traumas go back to their childhood, shocking events with far-reaching consequences. Carla's life imploded in adulthood in the worst of ways. My favourite character was actually Irene, a woman who seemingly has a supporting part but is actually central to the story. A series of butterfly effects links them all and I thought Hawkins did a fantastic job of bringing them all together and then unveiling them one by one as I read this book.

I had no expectations about what this book was going to be. It's not a fast-paced thriller, more of a gently simmering domestic noir which comes to the boil in quite unexpected ways. There's a cleverness to the writing, a literary theme running through the story which I particularly enjoyed, and some aspects of the conclusion that I thought ingenious on the part of the author. There is an underlying tension to this ultimately dark story and a murder mystery at its heart. Whilst undoubtedly a slow burner, it always kept my attention with its intriguing and multi-layered characters and its twisty storyline. ( )

Another compelling story from this author but lordy those people are horrible. Every single one was completely unlikable. And there were like 15 different characters and each one got their own point of view and it was simply too much to keep track of. I had to keep going back to the front of the book where she listed who they all were to figure out who the hell was talking this time, especially if they hadn't had a turn in a while. That kept throwing me completely out of the story, something I thought was a big no-no. How the hell this got onto the "100 books you must read" list is beyond me. Firmly solidifies my dislike of multiple POVs. ( )

The idea of the plot is quite interesting. I've already read a few books where so-called suicides were investigated. But the events enrolled really slowly, there were a lot of unnecessary passages IMHO, so it wasn't the kind of thriller I like.
The setting of the book is dull. The characters look so too. There is no happy character in the book, everybody has some secrets and painful memories. It was good only for misleading the reader, because to my mind, everybody could be a suspect.
The author mixes the main story with some legends about "troublesome women" who end up in the water. This adds some mystery to the atmosphere, but as it reveals at the end, the stories actually have nothing to do with the death of Nel Abbott (or Katie Whittaker's).
The author switches from past to present and that was a bit confusing for me. But such flashbacks also helped to see the story as a whole.
There are quite a lot of problems in the novel. Some of them:
- sibling rivalry
- rape
- parents and children relationship
- interfering in other people's personal matters
- love between a teacher and a student...
It wasn't a thriller I expected. But it wasn't really bad. So, having liked the book, I gave it 3 stars. ( )

We weten nu dat herinneringen niet onveranderlijk of bevroren zijn, zoals de potten met inmaak die Proust zich herinnerde, maar dat ze elke keer als ze naar boven worden gehaald, worden getransformeerd, uit elkaar getrokken, op nieuw in elkaar gezet en met een ander etiket erop opgeborgen.
