The Girl on the Train
The Girl on the Train | The Girl on the Train
A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives. 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? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

My first audiobook EVER I‘m so excited! I chose Libby as I was looking for honestly the cheap option Till I at least see if I like it. Can‘t wait to listen !

Crazeedi I just recently started audiobooks on overdrive/ libby. Once you get used to listening, it's a great way of *reading *more books 1d
Macker11 @Crazeedi yeah I have only listened to a couple minutes and I can already tell my mind wanders! But I really like the idea of reading more books! I think I‘m going to use audiobooks as more of books I might be interested in, and still purchase the ones I want. 1d

This followed along pretty much like a standard mystery. I guessed early on who the killer was. I really enjoyed the premise of someone witnessing another person's life in snippets passing by on the train during their commute. But all the characters were pretty shallow and unlikeable. The only one I really felt for was Rachel. Overall I'd recommend for a quick weekend mystery read. #pop19 #popsugar2019

There‘s a man on the opposite side of the train, sandy blond hair veering towards ginger. He‘s smiling at me. I want to say something to him, but the words keep evaporating, vanishing off my tongue before I have the chance to say them. I can taste them, but I can‘t tell if they are #sweet or sour. Is he smiling at me, or is he sneering? I can‘t tell. #QuotsyMay19

Ever just stare at strangers and imagine their life and make up details and names and storylines... what if one day you see something that isn't quite right... and you aren't sure you can trust anyone, including yourself...

Quite a thriller. Very entertaining.
But all the gaslighting, lost memories, and constructed confusion was a little exhausting. I suppose that's what it takes to produce a good thriller.
Not my normal read for a reason, but a good way to detox from the heavier lit I have been reading.

All the characters are just messed up. I don't normally read psychological thrillers, so it's probably just not my bag.

I finally finished reading this book after 3 months of picking it up , getting bored and setting it down and forgetting about it. Then reminding myself I had to finish reading it. The main character took forever to get to the point, she was always whining about her husband . She was repetitive-constantly! It was predictable , the ending was ok . Character development took a while. 3 ⭐️

Suzze I read this as an advance before it came out and felt the same way. I was amazed when it came out and people went crazy for it! 6mo
Nevermore88 Did you watch the movie? I haven‘t yet, my plan was to read first then watch. This may be the first time the movie was better than books. 6mo

Obviously I am very late to having read this book club. I loved reading every moment of this book and it was actually not predictable. Everything I predicted was debunked in the book itself. I loved the twists and the narration. Rachel really surprised me by listing all her faults without glossing everything over. A movie that makes me yet again want to know how it has been adapted on the screen.

Rachel catches a train to London each morning and knows the train stops at a signal opposite a row of houses. She begins to feel like she can relate to the people who live in the houses that over look the railway. She witnesses the lives of Jess and Jason and to Rachel she sees their life as perfect and she envies them. Everything is beginning to change. Rachel has the chance to become part of their lives and not be known as the girl on the train.

A book with over 1 million ratings there isn‘t much I need to say. I loved this Deliciously sinister book. Told from the point of view of 3 women, Rachel the alcoholic, Meghan the liar and Anna the cheat, it was hard to know who I could trust. The twists kept me guessing right up to the end. The audio narration was really good. Really, really good!

I was honestly thinking this would be worse than it was. It was rather easily predictable, but a few things did surprise me! It shows one of the painful realities of alcoholism, and that was the hardest thing to grasp about this book personally. Overall, the writing wasn‘t as impressive as other similar novels, but it was a worthwhile read!

Rachel, a divorced, unemployed alcoholic, rides the commuter train every morning. One day, she sees something shocking from the window. And then she gets involved in what happened. The book overall was a pretty slow read, although it did keep me going until the end (even though I did consider dumping it about halfway through). The last 50 pages were the ones that actually had me hooked, and I wish the entirety of the book had been more gripping.

ColleenIsReading This was one of those books I had to re-read a few months later, because I had gulped down the whole thing in one or two sittings and could not remember any details! I did like it but boy did the main character make me cringe—often! 8mo

Even though Halloween is over and I didn‘t get my swapoween box I‘m not letting that ruin my enjoyment of some good creepy books! 😍😍😍 what are y‘all reading?!

AlaSkaat I read this a while back and didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped. Not much different from other thrillers. But I did enjoy the train part. I guess spying on people and imagining their life or your life as them is much fun 😂 9mo
Cjcerrillo @OleAnder it‘s okay so far, I agree on the train part. I love how nosey she is and how she makes up stories about the people she sees. But I do find her drinking problem very sad and a tad annoying. (edited) 9mo
AlaSkaat @Cjcerrillo Yes! I thought in some parts it was a little exaggerated. I liked the book though. It just wasn't the best. Not something I would re-read, but enjoyed it as I read it lol 9mo
