Review: The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rachel Watson knows that there's something wrong--something she can't remember. Every day she watches the couple in the house along the train line, fantasizing about their perfect lives. Then the wife goes missing. For some reason, Rachel has an urgent need to help police and the woman's husband find the truth. But it's hard to provide credible information when you are seen as nothing more than a pathetic drunk.

The Girl on the Train is one of those thrilling mysteries that sucks you in. Although before you're introduced to the other characters points of view, Rachel does get to be a bit of a redundant mess. However, once someone goes missing, you'll probably have a hard time putting this down.

And although there's so much buzz about this book, it's really in line with most other books in this genre. It's not spectacular, but it will keep you wanting more until you reach the conclusion. With all this hype, I just hope that the inevitable movie version does this book justice.
