So good. I was glued to this book and read it in 4 hours. It was that gripping. If you are a fan of Gone Girl or Hitchcockian thrillers, this is a must read.
The Girl on the Train is written from a few different perspectives, but focuses mostly on Rachel. To put it delicately, Rachel is having a tough time sorting out her life. Every day, Rachel’s commuter train stops at a signal, which gives Rachel the perfect view of a seemingly happy suburban couple, who she names “Jess and Jason.” Rachel dreams up a magical life for this unsuspecting couple, imagining them as a perfect couple, with a perfect life. However, one day Rachel sees something that shatters the illusion and cannot keep it to herself. Soon, Rachel becomes entwined in the life of this couple in dangerous and thrilling ways.
If I haven’t made it clear above, you should definitely read this book. It is enthralling, engaging, and intriguing. It’s not a happy, fluffy novel, so don’t read it expecting any of that. But it is well-written and full of mystery.
