The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

The Girl on the Train
by Paula Hawkins

Rachel takes the same train to work every morning. She can see into the backyards of some of the houses the train passes. She likes to imagine what the lives of the people who live there are like, particularly a couple she has named “Jason” and “Jess.” One day, Rachel sees something from her usual spot on the train which is very unordinary, and causes her to become involved in Jason and Jess’ lives. This is told from the viewpoints and dates of three different women, so it can be a little confusing if the reader is not paying careful attention. It also seems a bit like a chose to keep the storylines straight. Once they come together, the story really picks up, and is hard to put down. Suspenseful and exciting, readers will be caught up in the story. When reading this myself, I finished the last half of the book in a matter of hours, and would not continue on my day until I had. -- recommended by Marie P. -- Bennett Martin Public Library
