The Girl on the Train

Cover: 'The Girl on the Train'

Staff Review: "The Girl on the Train" by Paula Hawkins


If you are looking for a book like "Gone Girl", this debut psychological thriller is the book for you! Rachel takes the same commuter train every day, passing by the same houses and imaging the lives of the people inside. One day Rachel notices something is wrong in one of the houses and reports the incident to the police. She cannot get what she saw out of her mind. However, as the story unfolds, we realize that Rachel is not exactly who she seems and that nothing she says can be taken at face value. This book is highly recommended and impossible to put down!
