The Night Swim This book will haunt me for a long time.A tale of two rapes, 25 years apart, handled expertly and sensitively This book so captivated me that I am at loss to describe my feelings.I was bereft.I was furious.I was hopeless.I found vindication.I cannot recommend it enough.I need to go lay down.Thank you to the BRILLIANT Megan Goldin, St Martin s Press and NetGalley for sending me a widget for this book I am honored and grateful. Once again I m finding myself frustrated at the way that any book with a lick of mystery is automatically dubbed a nail biting thriller If this book had been marketed as general crime fiction, or a character driven mystery, then I would have saved it for the appropriate mood, but alas, I picked this up expecting a fast paced, twisty read, much like The Escape Room The Night Swim is an important read, one that delves into the heavy topic of rape culture and what that means for our generation ve Once again I m finding myself frustrated at the way that any book with a lick of mystery is automatically dubbed a nail biting thriller If this book had been marketed as general crime fiction, or a character driven mystery, then I would have saved it for the appropriate mood, but alas, I picked this up expecting a fast paced, twisty read, much like The Escape Room The Night Swim is an important read, one that delves into the heavy topic of rape culture and what that means for our generation versus previous ones It s a courtroom drama mixed with pod cast media which equals heavy emotions and disturbing content If rape is something that triggers you, then I would give this one a hard pass For me, I felt like the author handled the subject with care and really explored the subject in respectful form Overall, if you enjoy slow burning mysteries with dual POVs and timelines, and can handle graphic, disturbing content, give The Night Swim a try for yourselfMany thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy.

her sister, Jenny At the same time, Rachel begins attending the trial of a famous swimmer accused of raping a 16 year old girl The two cases converge, leading to a sickening and sad revelation The Night Swim isn t easy to read Goldin spends a good deal of time examining how a rape trial plays out in the courtroom, including jury games and victim shaming The rapes of two female characters are also shared It is heavy, dark, and emotional to read There were several times that I had to put this book down to take a mental health break At the same time, I was completely captivated and appalled by Jenny and Kelly s stories Goldin handles the harsh topic of rape with sensitivity and honesty While reading The Night Swim I had to keep reminding myself that this is the author who wrote The Escape Room this book is the complete opposite of that one For me, The Escape Roomwas pure entertainment whereas, The Night Swim serves as a strong message for how society treats rape victims There were a few flaws, but I am not going to get into them I was pleased with the ending and hope to see another installment of Rachel in the future.I received an ARC of this book from Edelweiss and the publisher in exchange for an honest review 4.5 StarsRachel Krall is known for her voice She has a true crime podcast with a wide following People know her voice not her face, so when she finds a note

wants the truth to be known Intrigued Rachel begins to ask some questions and learns that small towns have secrets, secrets and long memories, and there are still some around who would prefer that the past remain in the past.Whew Another solid book by Megan Goldin I loved the Author s previous book, The Escape Room and had to read this one right away It did not disappoint I was hooked from page one I loved how this book was about reputation how they are formed, how people can make them for you and the damaging consequences when people begin to become identified by their reputation This book also shows the divide between the haves and have nots, how money and influence also affect and can pre determine how you are viewed in society But in the end, this book comes down to the brutality of rape.There are two mysteries in this book and the Author blended their stories beautifully The transitions between the past and present were flawless Both stories were interesting, gut wrenching and intriguing There is a lot to discuss with this book rape, how blame is assigned, the treatment of rape survivors, court testimony, pod casts, reputations, guilt, silence, etc.I found this book to be captivating, hard to put down, intriguing and thought provoking Plus, I am really hoping that this will become a series don t know if it will but would love if it was Either way, this was a fabulous book and I look forward tobooks by this author in the future I received a copy of this book from St Martin s Press and Edelweiss in exchange for and honest review All the thoughts and opinions are my own the best thing about this book is its relevance it combines the current intrigue of popular true crime podcasts like serial and recent emotionally difficult court cases like people vs turner i have a feeling this story is going resonate with many readers because of that.i will admit i found the second half of the book when the trial begins to beinteresting, but thats just a personal preference which lead me to find hannahs chapters very boring, because they deal with a cold case that the best thing about this book is its relevance it combines the current intrigue of popular true
