THE RUNAWAY SUNDAY TIMES NO.1 BESTSELLER AND THRILLER OF THE YEAR
YOU DON'T KNOW HER. BUT SHE KNOWS YOU.
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…

This book was recommend to me by my best friend and I first was a bit hesitant when I started to read about a struggling alcoholic. But after about 20 pages, I could not put this down. It was captivating until the end, and everything that happened was more than surprising. I love how the puzzle pieces come together at the end but keep you guessing throughout the whole book. I have recommended it to multiple friends.
Great read and got you caught up in the charactors
enjoyed the book and would recommend to friends
This story jumps from one female narrator the next, not in such a way as to be annoying, but in a way that enables the reader to obtain another piece of the puzzle. Paula Hawkins has written this book in a way that gives you all this information but not enough ties to piece the entire puzzle together. Interlaced with twists and turns throughout the plot of the story, "The girl on the train" will leave you feeling as if there's always one piece of information just out of reach, an absolutely amazing read. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone that will listen.
A great read.
A really good suspense novel.
Couldn't put it down
Loved it, can't wait to see the film
perfect for train rides ^_^
Sometimes it would be difficult to follow but overall it was enjoyable
I love reading but this book was a challenge to finish it.
I saw the movie, but the book was better
I really enjoyed this book
Not my favourite book
Characters were flawed, unlikable people. Couldn't wait to get to the end of the book so that it was done. Will not bother with the film. Would be an ok holiday/beach read at best.
Loved this book, would definitely recommend
Great book to read, purchased it after seeing the trailer for the movie - shame the movie wasn't as good.
The Girl on the Train

The alcoholic narrator is dead perfect." * STEPHEN KING * "My vote for unreliable narrator of the year" * The Times * "The thriller scene will have to up its game if it's to match Hawkins this year" * Observer * "Hawkins's taut story roars along at the pace of, well, a high-speed train . . . a smart, searing thriller'" * Good Housekeeping (US) * "The Girl On The Train was so thrilling and tense and wildly unpredictable, it sucked up my entire afternoon. I simply could not put it down. Not to be missed!" * Tess Gerritsen *
