The Girl on the Train
Book #16 Read in 2015
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
People have been comparing this book to Gone Girl and that comparison is pretty spot on as this thriller has not-so-likable characters and a plot that will keep you reading and unable to put the book down. Rachel has lost her job due to her drinking problem but in order to not have her roommate find out, she continues her daily train commute. This ride has her passing her old house, where her ex-husband now lives with his new wife and baby daughter, and a house nearby where a young couple lives. Rachel invents names and a storyline for this couple and feels as if she knows them. The wife then turns up missing and Rachel is drawn into trying to find out what happened. The plot has many twists and turns and will keep readers hooked from beginning to end. I highly recommend it.
