The Girl on the Train By Paula Hawkins

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

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. 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 goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?


My Thoughts: This book was kind of hard to get into; I won’t lie. It wasn’t horrible, but just started slow. It did pick up, amazon recommended it to me after reading something else. Jess and Jason are made up names of people that Rachel watches every day on the train to work. Rachel isn’t the best person in the world, she doesn’t tell anyone about her watching them, about her drinking, or truly anything. You start to feel bad for Rachel she truly has nothing going on in her life, besides watching these people she doesn’t even know. It is a little hard to follow sometimes as it changes from one person to another and back again, stick with it; it is worth it.
