Hey, I'm on a train! Taking a break from writing lectures (I hate the Seven Year War! I hate talking about the Deportation!) And looking out to a nice brisk day. #trainlife #academiclife

I didn't guess the ending, which was great! However, when I finished I was kinda just like "ohh okay" and not the "Omgeezy" I was expecting from all the hype ?? 3.5/5

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 also need to look at the campus bookstore to find where they keep the texts I assigned and look into library reserves. First class on 5 Sept. #academiclife #train

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!

No doubt this was a five star read for me! Rachel commutes to London every day passing by the same houses every morning and every evening. One day she sees something that might be useful for a police investigation... or maybe not ! #cozyinthesun #travelreads

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 2mo
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. 2mo

I can hear noises from the street: a police siren, young girls shouting and laughing, bass booming from a passing car. Normal life. But in here, the world is ending. For Scott, the world is ending, and I can't speak. I stand there, mute, helpless, useless

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

Demibom Train tracks give me the creeps. But the book looks promising 5mo

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.


Pretty decent quick read.

I am incredibly late to the party with this one, but glad to have finally latched on. Half way through and I've got my suspicions.

dalma_st_paul Very true. It's all about reader expectation and satisfaction. Which is why it is a great summer read, but I don't think I'll reread it. Not like 7mo

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I hated all the female characters in this book. I like to read about strong women, and I found these all to be weak and pathetic, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. I suppose the fact that they are flawed is what makes them relatable to some people. But not me. 8mo

violabrain The Hunger Games. I barely made it through book 1 and quit after about 15 pages of book 2. They were just so badly written I couldn‘t go on. And I agree about The Girl on the Train. 8mo
Megabooks @Crinoline_Laphroaig Yeah, definitely not the best. I did like it more than TGotT (edited) 8mo
Megabooks @Mynameisacolour I did like In a Dark Dark Wood. It was between a pick and a so-so for me. 8mo
Megabooks @mrsmarch Yeah, I‘m seeing a lot of us, which makes me wonder how she sold all those copies! 8mo
Megabooks @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego You took the review out of my mouth!!! The characters were helpless damsels. I don‘t mind an unreliable narrator, but I don‘t want a weak one!! 8mo
Megabooks @edennugget I do love Rainbow Rowell 🤭 If I Stay isn‘t a great book for me either! 8mo
Megabooks @violabrain I think if I read the Hunger Games now I would agree with you, but they were quick and engaging when I was in vet school, so I enjoyed them then. It was a right book, right time thing. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 8mo

REPollock I hated GotT too. Like, there were only two options for the killer from the beginning and one was eliminated so soon that I found it to be... the opposite of a thriller. Bleh, no thx. 8mo
Vexingcircumstance I hated the Bridget Jones books. I didn‘t really like the Twilight books but I did read them all (and I liked the last one best). I don‘t like any Nicholas Sparks books. I couldn‘t even get through Moby Dick or The Great Gatsby. I don‘t like Jane Austen. I don‘t like a lot of popular stuff lol. 8mo
Megabooks @REPollock Yes, I had it figured out early as well. Not much of a mystery! 8mo
Megabooks @Vexingcircumstance I only read the first Bridget book. I was 🙄🙄🙄 a lot at her vapid diary. I generally don‘t read romance or fantasy so I‘ve never attempted Twilight or Sparks. I keep trying to read classics, but most of them I don‘t like. 8mo
Hooked_on_books I didn‘t get the hype on this book. It was so meh. 8mo
Megabooks @Hooked_on_books Me either! And I love your profile pic!! 8mo
Vexingcircumstance Oh I thought of another lol. Freaking Fifty Shades of Grey. I had a friend who loved it so I gave it a shot. I made it about 1/4 of the way in before I wanted to punch every character in the face. It‘s so bad. 8mo
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. :/ 8mo
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. 8mo
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? 8mo
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! 8mo
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. 8mo
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! 😁 8mo

Why is it always about 'The Girl' - on the train, who played with fire, who takes an eye for an eye, who kicked the hornet's nest, with the dragon tattoo, with all the gifts, and 'the girl you left behind' . 😶

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I guess because we still aren‘t “good enough” to be a) women and b)called by our names yet in our own stories...still infantilized as just ‘the girl‘ nameless, easily interchangeable, her name doesn‘t really matter, girl. Boy, that‘s some depressing thoughts there, sorry 😐 10mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Ok, too depressing....maybe we‘ll spin it on its head and say the are reclaiming this diminutive title of just ‘the girl‘ and making that girl badass, kickbutt, nothing to be diminished or forgotten. (edited) 10mo

I couldn't finish this book the first time I read it. I reread it and had to finish it the second time. I still hated it lol

AnansiGirl I‘m sure it‘s a good story, but it was nails on chalkboard for me trying to read about the main character referring herself by her initials M.R. 11mo

By inspecting other reviews about this novel I quickly realized, due to its popularity, that they were definitely on either extremes. Readers either hated it or loved it. I fall under the latter.
I was hooked. I know many may not agree with my rating but to each their own.
I was invested in the resolution of the mystery on Blenheim Road and thoroughly enjoyed the way it was written.

I listened to the audiobook version. It was a great read. Though all the characters were flawed in big ways, I still cared about them as I read. Great writing.
