Book Review: The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

GoodReads Synopsis:

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 Thoughts:

This book kept me enthralled from beginning to end! At first, you get annoyed with Rachel. You want to shake her and tell her to get her Sh*t together!!! Then, you start to feel sorry for her. This really reminded me a lot of Gone Girl. I loved how everyone was finally tied together at the end.

Have you read it? 
I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!
