Random House presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Into the Water by Paula Hawkins, read by Imogen Church, Sophie Aldred, Daniel Weyman, Rachel Bavidge and Laura Aikman. The addictive new psychological thriller from the author of The Girl on the Train, the runaway Sunday Times Number One best seller and global phenomenon. In the last days before her death, Nel called her sister. Jules didn't pick up the phone, ignoring her plea for help.

What disappointed you about Into the Water?

Way too many characters, every chapters i listened to i was scrabbling to remember if i had already been introduced to this character and what part they played in the story

What was most disappointing about Paula Hawkins’s story?

The jump from how riveting Girl on the train was compared to how confusing Into the water is

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

The narrators were not the issue

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Into the Water?

Honestly i would of just told the story from two point of views rather than giving everyone in the town a voice

Any additional comments?

I can see how the story would of been interesting but as mentioned i think it could of been conveyed just as well from less characters
