This is one unsettling little thriller and the best bit about it is that no one can be trusted , including the three female narrators who share the storytelling of this book. I literally read this entire novel in one sitting and I now need to find the words to convince you to go get your hands on it.
Between an alcoholic, a liar and a cheat, who can you trust? These are the three women at the centre of "Something bad happened. These are the three women at the centre of this book: Rachel, Anna and Megan. Have you ever sat on the train, glanced at the people around you or out of the window, and made up stories about them? Maybe you've even gone so far as to invent names for these people and imagine their perfect or not-so-perfect lives.
Rachel is that girl on the train who takes her mind off her own life by imagining the lives of others. Specifically the lives of "Jess and Jason" who live at the house outside her train window when the train stops at the same red signal every morning. But then one morning, things are not as they are supposed to be and Rachel sees something that completely shatters the "Jess and Jason" image which exists in her head.
Now she is pulled into their lives. Unsure exactly what she knows but certain she cannot rest until she finds out. This book is just full of secrets.
Everyone has them. It's about all the little mysteries that exist just outside of what we see on the surface. What goes on behind closed doors? How much can you ever really know a person?
What horrors exist in that black spot of your memory from Saturday night? It was fascinating, gripping and oh so very creepy.
Hawkins has been added to the small group of thriller authors on my "must download" list. Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr I read this book due to the fact that everyone else read it.
Yes, mom I would jump off the cliff right behind everyone else. These are some fucked up characters. I think the new trend in books where every one of the characters is an asshole may be the way to go if you are writing a book that you want to take the world by storm with.
The thing is It gets frigging boring. I wanted a bus to hit them all. May go sorta spoilery: You have Rachel. Rachel is a drunk, she gets on the 8: Pretending to go to work. She got fired for drinking and basically acting a damn fool.. Sometimes she can't wait to take a drink before she gets home.
She sees "Jess and Jason" everyday. Or that's what she calls them in her head. They live near her old home. Where she lived with her ex-husband who cheated on her. I think not. She sees Jess kissing a guy that isn't Jason. So her little mind starts to working. Then Jess aka Megan goes missing. Rachel then decides to go to the police with what she knows.
Then the police find out she is not the most reliable of witnesses and tell her to stay out of it. Of course, that's not happening. Now for the twist. That one I saw coming and kept thinking "no way" it can't be that easy. This book wouldn't be so popular. I need to stay away from super, duper popular books. Because, I'm just calling Bullshit. The writing is not bad in this book, so I'm not giving it the rating for that.
I'm giving it the rating because I personally hated it. Jan 01, Michelle rated it did not like it. I just sent a 3 page, 3, word email about why I didn't like this book to a friend, and I still feel the urge to express myself.
I suppose that tells you just how much I disliked it. This thing is a hot mess, the writing is clumsy, there are things that don't make any sense, the characters are pathetic and the opposite of complex.
The 'plot twist' is easy to guess not even halfway through the book, and the who-dun-it moment, where we find out who the bad guy is, while predictable, doesn't make any sense to me, considered how this book is written and what we know about the characters. Exposition, people. There isn't any. You might argue that it's because of the unreliable narrator, but I'm not downloading it.
Good writing works its way around it. Also, I didn't know 'thriller' translated to 'no character development'. And have I mentioned the clumsy writing? This book was, above all things that I honestly didn't care about , awkward. View all 99 comments. Jan 06, Wendy Darling rated it really liked it Shelves: It's also a well-written, precisely plotted psychological thriller, and deftly sketches one unreliable narrator after another.
I guessed the culprit not too far into the book, but that didn't spoil my reading experience at all, particularly because the author drops so many diverting and convincing red herrings into the story. I think it's also interesting that t 4. I think it's also interesting that the central character, Rachel, challenges readers to think about how much we assume about--and pre-judge--other people based on our limited knowledge of them.
To feel pity, disgust, frustration, compassion, and so much more for one character is a rare thing. View all 83 comments. Jan 12, Alexandra rated it did not like it. Depressing from start to finish. Most every single character was a hot mess.
I have literally no idea why there are so many 5 star ratings. It kind of scares me. If this kind of garbage is what the masses find appealing I mean.. I didn't care at all about the "mystery. It just felt like a tedious glimpse into the messed up lives of people I'd rather not know anything about. Feb 24, Regan rated it really liked it Shelves: Good read but the ending fell a little flat for me.

The concept sounded amazing, and it got off to a promising But it quickly turned into this messy, melodramatic story that was neither surprising, or original. Much like in Gone Girl, there was not a single likable character in the entire book. That wasn't the main problem for me, though.
I could see the ending coming from a mile away. Actually more like I figured out who the main villan was within the first 20 pages.
Never a ringing endorsement. View all 38 comments. I tried to enjoy it! I swear I did! The hype told me that I had to!
I wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. I never really cared about the story and ALL of the characters were unlikeable. Sometimes characters are unlikeable in a good way, but not this time. At no point was I excited to be reading this. It has to be intentional to ride the coattails of other successful titles. I noticed on my library site that there is I tried to enjoy it! I noticed on my library site that there is another popular checkout called Girl on a Train - I wonder how many people thought they were getting the other one!
Dec 23, Lisa rated it it was ok Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I am so disappointed in this one.
It started out promising enough, but the writing and the drama got old fast. There was really only one person who could have done it, and because of that I kept thinking it must be someone else. But it wasn't someone else. By the time the big reveal happened, I was so ready for the whole thing to just be over already. I started out thinking I had a 4 star book in my hands. Halfway through I was looking for an excuse to give it 3 stars.
Finall I am so disappointed in this one. Finally, with about 30 pages left, I knew that 2 stars was going to be a gift. Well I'm in a generous mood or kind of disappointed in myself for downloading into the hype and 2 stars is what I'm giving it. My advice which you probably shouldn't take because everyone else is loving it is to skip this one entirely.
A weak 2 stars. View all 80 comments. There might be some ranting ahead. This has frequently been called the next Gone Girl. And yes, that is to some extend why I wanted to read this. Out of these three things I got one — an unreliable narrator.
But one written so clumsily and shallow that I was annoyed, not intrigued, by her. The shift between narrative points of view and the two timelines seem like an artificial way of keeping the reader in the dark.
The alcohol-induced blackouts of the main character just add to that feeling. It was simply clumsy and trite. These aspects annoyed me to no end but the absolute worst thing about Rachel and the two other female narrators was how pathetic they were.
Throughout the book I got the feeling that Paula Hawkins must hate women; hate them with a passion. Women in this novel are portrayed as unstable going on batshit crazy , weak, dependent on men , and insecure. Every single woman mentioned defines her personality in relation to a man. They doubt themselves, their capabilities and decisions. The men, in contrast, are all mysterious but strong and sure of themselves.
They are there to give definition and meaning to their wives, girlfriends, mistresses, and sons. Even those women on the side-lines of the plot are only defined by their relationships to men. Still, even the supposedly reasonable character is defined by her boyfriend. And these are only the minor female characters in this novel.
Rachel, Anna, and Megan are all pathetic in their very own way. And every single thought they have is about how their decisions or actions might affect their husbands, ex-husbands, boyfriends, or lovers. I also know what Hawkins was trying to do. She wanted to show the dark side of domestic life — just like Gone Girl did. But in my opinion she has utterly failed to do so. View all 48 comments.

According to Riverhead, The Girl on the Train is, or was, the fastest-selling adult hardcover fiction debut ever. And that is a shame. With so many great books being published every year that do little or no business, for this one to have secured a first class ticket on the book-sales express can only be dispiriting to the good and great writers everywhere toiling away in third cla I read this one out of curiosity.
With so many great books being published every year that do little or no business, for this one to have secured a first class ticket on the book-sales express can only be dispiriting to the good and great writers everywhere toiling away in third class on the oft-delayed local.
I do not mean to say that The Girl… is a bad book. Although I believe it to be seriously flawed, it is most definitely entertaining and will no doubt help hundreds of thousands of readers while away a few hours of their our lives, getting from this station to that.
Paula Hawkins Rachel Watson has had a tough go of it. When her hopes of having a baby with hubby Tom did not work out, she landed in a trough of post-hope depression, and self-medicated with a steady flow of what seemed happier spirits. It did not work out. Now, divorced and unemployed as a result of her drinking, growing larger and pastier by the day, Rachel rides the commuter train to London on weekday mornings, pretending she is still working, pretending she still has a life.
The ride takes her past her old neighborhood, offering a nice, mood dampening view of a stretch of railroad-edge homes. She used to live in one of those, before her ex bought out her interest. A few places away from her former home there is a couple she sees most days. She imagines lives for them, nursing this fantasy for quite some time, until she learns that the woman has vanished, and the game is afoot.
The notion for the story occurred to Hawkins on her regular train ride in London some years back. I did idly wonder about what you would do if you saw an act of violence or something suspicious. We expect our investigators these days to be a bit down on their luck, and to throw back maybe more than their share of amber liquid. The tale is told in staggered chronology, from three perspectives.
Or she said, she said, and then she said. The timelines converge at the end. Most sections are divided into sub headings of morning, evening, afternoon, that sort. It makes for many short passages, good, appropriately, for reading on a train. This is an example of the S stock used on the District line Hawkins once rode The pace of the tale is quick, clickety-clacking along without exceeding posted limits, advancing nicely to the big climax.
Truthfulness comes in for some attention, as it seems everyone has something to hide. If you are looking for likeable characters, you might try the Hogwarts Express. The folks here tote enough baggage to merit their own cars.
I suppose Rachel is sympathetic, but seems almost as much an agent of her misery as a victim. Making her pathetic and annoying was, I expect, a way to make her real, make her sympathetic, and that works, to a point. Will Rachel find out what happened with the missing woman? Will her ex take out an order of protection against her, as she keeps calling and showing up at his place? Is the missing person merely missing? Can Rachel stay sober long enough to figure anything out?
You might very well care. Clearly, judging by sales, many do.
But, while I did, a little, I felt pushed away by this book. I felt cheated, as an actual audience member, as if riding on a disoriented express. I do understand that the unreliable narrator is simply a story-telling mechanism and that Rachel falls into the Madman classification within that, but when she changes her story about a significant piece of information the story went off the rails for me. So, while there is plenty to enjoy about The Girl on the Train , while there is plenty of tension-release-repeat, and while many readers are bound to be transported by the story, relating to or rooting for one or more characters at least some of the time, the one thing a reader demands from an author is honesty, and when trust is lost so is the benefit of the several hours we spend together.
The locomotive was transformed, for me, into a hand-car trapped in a siding. She got work writing chick-lit under the name Amy Silver, an experience that she says was great training.
Hawkins, born and raised in Zimbabwe, was 17 when her family moved to London. She had wanted to be a foreign correspondent like her father, but decided that war zones were just too scary.

View all 26 comments. May 21, Jeffrey Keeten rated it liked it Shelves: But my better angels lost again, defeated by drink, by the person I am when I drink. Drunk Rachel sees no consequences, she is either excessively expansive and optimistic or wrapped up in hate. She has no past, no future. She exists purely in the moment. Drunk Rachel Rachel rides the train into London every day to keep up the pretense that she has a job.
The truth is she lost her job months ago when she showed up to work inebriated, not just buzzed or mildly intoxicated, but sloppy drunk. It was around the time when she was trying to get pregnant with her now ex-husband Tom.
He impregnated his mistress instead. Rachel used to be attractive, curvy, and pretty, but now the curves have lost their buoyancy, and her face has become puffy. She is melting down into someone unrecognizable. The pain that used to be internalized is now manifesting itself into a grotesque mask. She drinks to escape. I pass out cold for an hour or two, then I wake, sick with fear, sick with myself. Sometimes she blacks out. The problem with THAT is she loses so much control over what she does or what she remembers.
When she blacks out she has to believe what others tell her. This is when she writes painfully embarrassing emails to her ex-husband. This is when she is capable of doing something that she would never consider doing sober. The train takes Rachel by her old life every day. The subdivision with the beautiful house that she thought would be hers forever is part of her daily view. She can look right into the backyards of the homes, and there she starts to notice a couple, a perfect couple who seem to love each other.
She projects a life onto them, even giving them names, and starts to look forward to any glimpse of them that will allow her to add to the fairy tale narrative that she has been assembling about them on her daily rides into work. Then one day she sees something that brings the whole house of cards tumbling down.
We can look at other people and think their lives are wonderful. They must be leading so much more successful and meaningful lives than we do.
The problem of course is that we know everything about our lives. Every failure is duly noted on a spooling list. Our successes are tempered by our own feelings of inadequacies.
Every debilitating slight to our self-esteem etches away at the foundation of our ability to see beyond the things that have went wrong. What we have to remind ourselves of is that, though people may seem to be leading perfect lives, everybody has problems. We are all doomed to be disappointed, to falter, to make mistakes, and sometimes destroy ourselves. Scott and Megan, as it turns out, are no different. Her mythical couple have names as it turns out, not the ones she chose for them.
When Megan disappears Rachel realizes that she saw something. The problem is she is an irresponsible drunk. This book is certainly an ode to one of my favorite films Rear Window. For those youngsters out there, you might be more familiar with the film Disturbia. Jimmy Stewart is incapacitated with a broken leg, but Rachel may actually be more incapacitated by her drinking. Rachel is the definition of an unreliable narrator. The characters in this book are not very endearing.
As we learn more about them we find less and less to like about them. Be warned about these characters if you are a reader that must like the people you read about. The plot certainly reminded me of an Agatha Christie. I often found myself munching down on a red herring served on a Ritz Cracker and washed down with a decent Merlot.
If that proves to be the case, I might even need to bump it one star. There is talk of Emily Blunt starring in the upcoming movie which could lend the project some extra attention. This book, with this plot, should translate well to screen. If you wish to see more of my most recent book and movie reviews, visit http: View all 58 comments.
