Product Description

THE RUNAWAY SUNDAY TIMES NO.1 BESTSELLER AND THRILLER OF THE YEAR, NOW A MAJOR FILM STARRING EMILY BLUNT

'Really great suspense novel. Kept me up most of the night. The alcoholic narrator is dead perfect' STEPHEN KING

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 life – as she sees it – is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy.

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 a part of the lives she’s only watched from afar.

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

A tense and twisty thriller, The Girl on the Train is garnering plenty of well deserved attention for debut author, Paula Hawkins.

After a slightly bewildering start I was gripped by this chilling, tangled tale of love, hate and betrayal. Revealing much more than the back cover hints at risks spoilers that will ruin the surprises in store for the reader. I think it's important to unravel the secrets and lies as the author intended and to allow yourself to become caught up in the twists and turns of the plot.

Astute readers may solve the mystery before the final pages but its unraveling is compelling. The conclusion may be a little neat but should also satisfy.

Clever and disturbing in equal measure The Girl on the Train is an engrossing read, don’t be fooled by the brevity of this review – I just don’t want to spoil anything for you!

I did enjoy 'The Girl On The Train". It's the first book I've read by Paula Hawkins. Its a good sign when I actually look forward to my time to read my current book and am reluctant to stop when I need to sleep. I would have rated the book higher but for one thing, and that was the confusion I had between the female characters and their relationships with their husbands. They were similar and on occasion,I had to check which one I was following. Of course in the overall story it was perfectly clear who was who, it was during the read that I experienced the confusion. Still that could me my fault. It's a terrific story, clever and sharp and full of twists. I recommend it to those that like to read good thrillers.... it certainly is that!

The girl on the train is a woman who has become usual now ; an edgy, 30-something and divorced. This one has additional strife in pining for her ex and is a lush, as well, with a fantasy about true love, seen through the train window - a perfect couple, together in a London back garden. The perfect woman disappears . Our girl gets involved in what becomes murder. Everyone from her ex to police deride her unto mental breakdown - almost. Finally, she sorts it out. As a who dunnit ? I think about two thirds of the way through most readers would say < Stop the train, I want to get off. It was--------- >. Left at that, the trip is enjoyable enough for incidents along the way.

This book is a fast paced, suspenseful thriller. Although I suspected the eventual outcome half way through, I was impressed at the writer being able to maintain the edge of the seat excitement through to the end. The reason I couldn't score it higher was that all the characters were depressing and personality-disordered (including the police officers). I finally developed some sympathy for the main character, but mostly I wanted to shake her and all of her ne'er do well associates. The only one who was normal was her flaky flat mate, but she really needed to learn about boundaries. In the end I just wanted to be rid of all of them.

Sorry but I did not get past the first chapter. I have no doubt that it would have improved, and it is surely a good read for those who like this type of book, but a full chapter of girly regrets with the story going nowhere is just not for me.

I cannot see what all the hype is about. This is the most grammatically incorrect book I have ever read. Every paragraph contains errors in grammar which any school child would know are incorrect. Obviously some people are happy with this style but I find it extremely childish and in poor taste. I did not warm to any of the characters who I found to be very weak and in need of a good shake. One has a drinking problem and then towards the end another character starts drinking too. There is not one strong character to hold this together. The ending was predictable too.

it is a good read there is no doubt about that BUT i find the author repeats herself often and I don't believe that there could be anyone so stupid as the The Girl On the Train. Her behavior is unreal which makes the story unbelievable for me. I would not want to read anything else that this author
has written. I am near the end of the book and I must say I am intrigued as to who has committed the crime: probably a little too long, too much drinking: can people really drink that much and stay sane? It makes me feel grubby. Hawkins does a great job of creating another side of life and it is one I don't want to be a part of. lets hope it has a happy ending for someone.

I really enjoyed this book, it was gripping, slightly stressful and a real page turner. I bought this book as I had heard about the movie and had an idea about the story line. The characters were extremely well defined, believable and I was drawn in to their lives. Got to see the movie now!
