by Paul Hawkins


From Goodreads

A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people’s lives.

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

My Review

I gave this book 5 Stars

First off let me say the only reason I picked up this book to read is that it kept getting reviews of it being like the book Gone Girl. I did read Gone Girl and I really think this book was much better.

The story is told by three woman. Rachel, Megan and Ann. It also revolves around three different men. This book was a thrilling ride, keep you on the edge of your seat as you try to figure out the clues that are thrown at you. This is the first Paula Hawkins book that I have read. I'm going to search out and see what other books she has written and see if they are as good as this one.
