The girl on the Train Novel. Paula Hawkins

Here is one book that I really wanted to read. I saw this book everywhere displayed, the reviews were glowing and the history sound interesting. To be honest I was a little disappointed, it took time before I was captivated and I never really felt any compassion for the main character, I found her to be a bit pathetic and annoying even.

This is not the thriller of the century, but this book hooked me enough to want to know the outcome of the story. I should also mention that as a first novel that is very promising for future publications.


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?
