THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN BY PAULA HAWKINS

YOU DON’T KNOW HER BUT SHE KNOWS YOU.

To everyone else in this carriage I must look normal, I’m doing exactly what they do. Commuting to work, making appointments,ticking things of list.

Just goes to show.

EVERY DAY THE SAME

Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens.

She’s even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. ‘Jess and Jason’ she calls them. Their live as she sees it is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy.

UNTIL TODAY

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough.

Now everything’s changed.  Now Rachel has a chance to become part of their lives she’s only watched from afar.

Now they’ll see she’s much more than just the girl on the train.

 

MY REVIEW

It is unbelievable that this is Paula Hawkins first novel. What stands out about this clever story is how the author has told the story from all characters with an exceptional high impressive standard for suspense. I really think we are looking at one the new finest female thriller writers for the future. I absolutely adored every page. I would encourage any thriller fan to buy The Girl On The Train as it gives a good mix of characters each with a story to tell and not knowing who is telling the truth or lies. The story is about married Rachel  who goes from being a drinker to being drunk that drove her husband away. Through black outs during her being drunk she can’t remember if she said or have done terrible things. During her train ride to work she gazes out of the window when she starts to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. Jess and Jason she calls them. One day on the train she something shocking ,now she has her chance to become involved in Jess and Jason’s lives. Chilling things happen, with a gut punching ending. Call me a fan I am ready to get every novel that Paula Hawkins writes.
