Girl on the Train
Girl on the Train | Paula Hawkins
The #1"New York Times"Bestseller, "USA Today"Book of the Year, soon to be a major motion picture. The debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives. Nothing is more addicting than"The Girl on the Train." "Vanity Fair " "The Girl on the Train"has more fun with unreliable narration than any chiller since"Gone Girl." . . . [It] is liable to draw a large, bedazzled readership. "The New York Times " Marries movie noir with novelistic trickery. . . hang on tight. You'll be surprised by what horrors lurk around the bend. "USA Today " Like its train, the story blasts through the stagnation of these lives in suburban London and the reader cannot help but turn pages. "The Boston Globe " "Gone Girl"fans will devour this psychological thriller. "People" EVERY DAY THE SAME Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. 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. UNTIL TODAY 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 goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? "

Sadly, on a train again. What I can tell you is that 1) I've not read anything fictional in 8 days, and 2) Not going to read fiction any time soon, because course writing, and 3) Not going to finish Inktober in actual October.

Please tell me fun bookish things!

Gloomy traveler on a gloomy train day. Forgot my lunch bag at home. Heading to uni for a full teaching day, then taking another train to Toronto, where I have a specialist appointment tomorrow morning. After which, I'm going to the Muji store to buy All. The. Stationary!!! Then another train home. Too much marking and lecture writing to do for getting any reading done. We'll see. *sigh*

Going to uni, for the dreaded MA defence and hopefully for checking if my machines work in the bigger auditorium I'm assigned. It's been in use every time I was on campus this last six months.

I recently read the book 📖 and watched the movie 🎥 as well. A skilful memory loss thriller! This thriller is atmospheric and suspenseful. Coming to the movie, although various timelines do make it somewhat confusing, plots being disjointed but all the three women hold it all together, especially Emily Blunt for her stunning portrayal of forsakeness!

Even though there is only one girl on the train, Hawkins flicks back and forth between the perspectives of three female characters. It was a nice change reading the stories of fictional women that were actually written by a woman. Don't get me wrong, this one is hardly at the forefront of feminist literature, but it was still a reasonable twisty thriller.

An enjoyable read. Rachel is a wonderfully unreliable narrator and as a regular train commuter it is easy to recognize the fascination with the houses you pass. Also: I thought the description of Rachel‘s alcoholism was both realistic and depressing. Not everything is believable, but it kept me on my toes and that is what a thriller should do.

rather_be_reading one of my all time favs 4mo
Henrik_Madsen @rather_be_reading I wouldn‘t go that far but it was a good book and an original take. I‘m glad I have finally read it. 4mo

Another disappointment, even worse than Into the Water. The culprit super obvious, way too many voices trying to add their superflous perspectives, and yet again the motto of "All men are basterds, all women meant well but fucked up". As average TV-mystery this might work, but holds no more content than a 90min flick. #dontbelievethehype

#AnglophileApril Day 2: This pageturner has a lot of #RumorHasIt vibe. Most reviewers tend to liken the plot to that of Gone Girl – and I can see the parallels, particularly with the unreliable narrators whose memories are dubious at best. I naturally accompanied my review with traintrack photos while I was in Birmingham and London in 2015. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-axE

A wardrobe basic; an easy, diary style, holiday read. I read it in a day, it served that purpose. It's a pudding book. Not main course. The premise is relevant - on point - the prose is unsophisticated. That said, I enjoyed the drunkenness of Rachel. So many women are that. I have been. Hence, it's on point. About Rachel, on a train that sees into houses - invents the lives of occupants - then becomes embroiled.

Vexingcircumstance @Megabooks I only read the first and I think one chapter of the second Bridget book (on the hope that it would be better). I don‘t really like sappy romances either now but I had limited access to books as a pre-teen and Nicholas Sparks was one author that was easy to find places like Walmart or even grocery stores. :/ 10mo
Megabooks @Vexingcircumstance I read the 50 shades trilogy 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ It was bad, but for some reason, I have a soft spot for bad erotica. Totally understand re: Sparks. 10mo
Vexingcircumstance @Megabooks I just couldn‘t stand the writing and the characters and the improper depiction of S&M. I had a lot of issues with Fifty Shades lol. I DO like some erotica though. Any recommendations for some actually good ones? 10mo
Megabooks @Vexingcircumstance I wish! For some reason I only enjoy bad or awkwardly written ones! 😂 I also have a soft spot for rereading 3⭐️ so-so fiction. I‘m weird! 10mo
Vexingcircumstance Eh I mean I love those cheesy cozy mysteries that are kiiiiiiinda all the exact same story and I love urban fantasy like Laurel K Hamilton and Charmaine Harris. And I have often re-read my favorite series by them. So no judgment from me. Lol. 10mo
Megabooks @Vexingcircumstance I just totally spammed your feed with replies! 😂😂 Sorry. I have trouble seeing everyone I follow because I follow close to 10k people. I‘ll definitely be looking in on you, though, if you don‘t mind! 😁 10mo
REPollock It was maddening bc I kept thinking that if the MC weren‘t blackout drunk all the time, she would have known from the get-go what happened. 10mo
Megabooks @REPollock Exactly!!! 10mo
Reviewsbylola I remember as I read this I kept wondering why people were so excited about this one. I found it boring. 10mo
Megabooks @Reviewsbylola Yeah, it just stunk! 🤷🏻‍♀️ 10mo

Adventures in passenger trains continue! My train home is already 1/2 h late! Yoohoo!

Itchyfeetreader There was a time when I was commuting in and out of London daily when I was pleased of if was only a half an hour delays. The trains are why we ended up actually moving to London (edited) 10mo
tournevis @Itchyfeetreader I love trains, I really do, but I'd rather be home right now. It's cold and I'm tired. 10mo
Itchyfeetreader Oh nothing no red than a lovely train journey when the sun is shining and refreshments of plentiful - but cold and tired is the worst. Safe travels 10mo
