Book of the Week
Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
This book is what I’d refer to as an addictive page turner! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Many are comparing it to Gone Girl
and I definitely see the similarities. Being inside Rachel’s mind is heart breaking but I found myself desperately flipping the pages to figure out what the heck was going on!
Here’s a good description from Amazon:
“The “girl on the train” is Rachel, who commutes into London and back each day, rolling past the backyard of a happy-looking couple she names Jess and Jason. Then one day Rachel sees “Jess” kissing another man. The day after that, Jess goes missing. The story is told from three character’s not-to-be-trusted perspectives: Rachel, who mourns the loss of her former life with the help of canned gin and tonics; Megan (aka Jess); and Anna, Rachel’s ex-husband’s wife, who happens to be Jess/Megan’s neighbor. Rachel’s voyeuristic yearning for the seemingly idyllic life of Jess and Jason lures her closer and closer to the investigation into Jess/Megan’s disappearance, and closer to a deeper understanding of who she really is. And who she isn’t. This is a book to be devoured.“
