The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the TrainThe Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Girl on the Train felt like reading a very long, prolonged car crash, the characters in the book sometimes grabbed my attention in a horrified, oh my god this is awful sort of way and other times it was the characters were so cringeworthy it was an actual effort to force myself to read on.

The book tells the tale of Rachel, a divorced, miserable, alcoholic who passes by a house every day on the train. She often sees the occupants in the garden and she creates a whole made up life for them. However this made up life clashes with reality when one of them goes missing.

The book was okay but I’m not quite sure what all the fuss was about.
