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.

Paula Hawkins takes readers on a train ride (pun intended, you ride the train a lot in this book) of mystery and emotions, when you cannot quite remember what happened: She rides the train in to London every day, just to cover up that she has lost her job and is no longer working. While on the trai...
The Girl on the Train - Paula Hawkins So yeah, that happened. I don't even know where to begin with this one. Absolutely NO ONE in this book had any redeeming value. If you ask me they all deserved each other. I just can not believe this book. The beginning of the book dragged for me. Th...
NOTE: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS There are times when I read a book, I must not be bias based on my personal ideals and self opinions about a subject. There are times... I had to because it does get to my nerves. Whether it is a story, characters or the flow of the story. The Girl on the Train is...
