Into the Water by Paula Hawkins
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Paula Hawkins, I gave you a second chance after The Girl on the Train. But I think we are going to have to part ways here. Seriously, it's not you, it's your characters. They suck. Not a likable one in the whole bunch.
You see, I'm a HEA girl, in real life, and in my books. I want to be around likable people who I don't hate. Sadly, you write really terrible people in your books. There was not a single one who I didn't want to slap. And I hated Sean most of all. I couldn't muster up the slightest bit of empathy for these folks--I wanted all of them to go into the water and never come back.
So many people seem to love your books, and this means you will be able to continue to put food on the table. You just aren't the author for me. If I want to be around people I don't like, I will go to work. 1.5 stars, but rounding up to 2 because I'm sure I'm in the minority.
