ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
Rather than doing questions for each book I want to make it a little easier. Below are the three things I’d like to know about each book.
Your general thoughts – This book was a little slower than I thought it would be, and kind of hard to follow with all the date jumping. I’m so glad I stuck with it though because the last few chapters were totally worth it.
Your favorite thing – Getting so many different character’s point of views. I found myself trying to stay a step ahead of everything and form some kind of an idea of who the killer was, but ended up being way off.
Your least favorite thing – All the date jumping. I listened to this book via Audible and it was hard to keep track of where things were at. It probably would have been easier to keep track if I had been actually reading the book. However, I don’t know if I would have stuck with it if I was reading it.
