BOOK CLUB: The Girl On The Train

epub file download: The Girl On The Train


Aside from the Memento blog series, I am also launching another series called the Book Club - wherein I'm going to write reviews on books I have read and approved. And in addition to this I am also challenging myself to read at least one book per month.



THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN - Paula Hawkins

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

A compulsively readable, emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller that draws comparisons to Gone GirlThe Silent Wife, or Before I Go to Sleep, this is an electrifying debut embraced by readers across markets and categories.
 It took me a week to finish this book not because it's long and boring but simply because I am too busy with so many things. One week is the fastest I can get - depends on my schedule and on the transition of the story. The Girl on the Train is surprisingly good.. to be honest, the synopsis didn't struck me but when I started reading the first chapter, I found myself looking for more.

I don't want to be a spoiler so I won't say any more details. I'll just give you the genre together with the questions/feelings I have while reading the book so that you'll have the hint if it is your type --

Genre: Mystery, Thriller

Questions on my mind while reading the book:
"Who did what?"
"Will Rachel end up in jail or in a mental hospital?"
"Is the girl dead or still alive?"

Highly recommended for those who loves guessing games.
