Their life, as she sees it, is perfect ... until she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but now everything is changed.

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.

I find myself going through books like I go through clean underwear. This book was no exception. It was a fast paced novel that kept me swiping (iPad) through the pages until the very end. However, I found this book to be predictable. although I played the guessing game throughout the novel, somewhere in the middle I figured out the killer. I've only seen the movie adaptation of Gone Girl, so I have nothing to compare The Girl on the Train to in regards of writing style. I didn't like any of the characters, but sympathized with their situations at different times throughout the story. All in all I felt that the women in the story were very weak, always seeking some sort of validation or approval from men. This book definitely isn't the next Gone Girl, but the story is very familiar and fans of Gone Girl will either love this one, or... well you know. ( )

This one makes you anxious and worried and scared all at the same time, until the end when you realize what is going on. Then it becomes a matter of "I should have seen that." What makes you anxious is that the protagonist is not the best of people, yet she wants to be, and that causes more problems than if she just left things alone. Except, it doesn't.

Read it. Do it in one setting. ( )

Recommended: eh
For those who don't read many mysteries, for a slow-burn psychological drama, for a story you can read once and be done with forever after

Thoughts:
I finally got around to reading this book. And since I remember years ago that there was a lot of excitement around this book, including it being a Goodreads Choice winner (2015 I believe), and there was also a movie adaptation, I had really high expectations. Maybe that was part of it's downfall for me, really.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it while I was reading it and was usually interested to see what happened next. I wanted to know the answer to the mystery. I had my own suspicions and was really angling for a specific outcome that I thought would have been worthy of the intensity of hype around the book. Each character intrigued me in their own way, and the snippets I got from Anna and Megan drew me in each time. I didn't dislike any of them, and was never disappointed when it switched perspectives.

What left me feeling lukewarm is that overall, my compulsion to read this was still fairly tepid. It didn't truly grip me in the way that I want from a psychological mystery thriller kind of story. There were some unexpected plot elements thrown in that were a delicious surprise, but there were also some opportunities that I felt were missed out on. There isn't a lot of actual action within the story, as it focuses on interpersonal questioning and scheming. Now that I've finished it, I feel like I will probably not think of it much ever again.

In the end, the ending was decent and the weave of the three central women's lives was concluded well, if not exactly tidily. There's still some open-endedness to the story, as what happened would mess everyone up mentally for sure. The openness appeals to me, as I can further imagine what would happen with the characters after the final page. But still - overall, I find myself longing for something closer to [b:The Murder of Roger Ackroyd|16328|The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Hercule Poirot, #4)|Agatha Christie|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1389734015l/16328._SY75_.jpg|1073110].

KIRKUS REVIEWDesperate to find lives more fulfilling than her own, a lonely London commuter imagines the story of a couple she?s only glimpsed through the train window in Hawkins? chilling, assured debut, in which the line between truth and lie constantly shifts like the rocking of a train.Rachel Watsona divorced, miserable alcoholic who?s still desperately in love with her ex-husband, Tom¥rides the same train every day into London for her dead-end job, one she unsurprisingly loses after one too many drunken outbursts. Continuing her daily commute to keep up appearances with her roommate, Rachel always pays special attention to a couple, whom she dubs ?Jess and Jason,? who live a seemingly idyllic life in a house near her own former home. When she sees a momentary act of infidelity, followed soon after by news that Jess¥whose real name is Megan Hipwell¥has disappeared, Rachel is compelled to share her secret knowledge, becoming enmeshed in the police investigation, which centers on Megan?s husband, Scott. Further complicating matters is the fact that the night Megan vanished, Rachel has a hazy memory of drunkenly stumbling past the Hipwell home and seeing something she can?t quite recall. Hawkins seamlessly moves among Rachel?s present-day story as the investigation into Megan?s disappearance widens, Megan?s own life leading up to her disappearance, and snippets about Anna, the woman for whom Tom left Rachel.Even the most astute readers will be in for a shock as Hawkins slowly unspools the facts, exposing the harsh realities of love and obsession?s inescapable links to violence.

Quando comprei este livro, tinha finalmente saído do top depois de mais de um ano de enorme sucesso. Resolvi entrar no hype train (um bocado atrasado é certo), e ver por mim o motivo de tanto alarido.
Para começar, gostei do estilo de narrativa. Ao existirem 3 interlocutores com perspetivas diferentes sobre o desenrolar da história, permite ao leitor obter uma visão alargada e sentir-se mais integrado na história. Tratando-se de uma narração por parte de 3 personagens femininas sob a forma de diário, este estilo permite contar a história de uma forma extremamente pessoal, de situações aparentemente normais, como um dia ordinário numa rua perto da linha de comboio. A minha principal e única crítica a este estilo narrativo prende-se com o facto de que as 3 personagens representadas são bastante complicadas e problemáticas, tornando-se complicado simpatizar com elas. Digamos que a minha personagem preferida foi a alcoólica sem auto-estima.
Apesar de tudo, esta particularidade das personagens até acabou por se tornar interessante, pois nunca tinha lido um livro de mistério em que a história é contada por personagens pouco fiáveis. É impossível confiar nas palavras de uma alcoólica compulsiva, no entanto a história principal é contada por ela.
Esta inexistência de confiança faz com que a suspeita do leitor seja transferida consoante o desenrolar dos acontecimentos, sempre a formular hipóteses e teorias para tentar descobrir o que aconteceu e qual o personagem que é menos de confiança. Dito isto, achei que o final foi um bocado apressado e insatisfatório, não foi previsível mas também não foi surpreendente de todo e deixou algo a desejar no fim.
No geral, foi uma boa leitura e recomendo para quem gosta do género. Não é nenhuma obra prima literária e acho que não correspondeu às expectativas criadas, teve um grande trabalho de marketing por trás, mas tem as suas qualidades e como livro de mistério, cumpriu o objetivo, que foi prender-me à história e fazer-me querer continuar a ler até descobrir a solução para o mistério. 3.5/5.

"...a building, inescapable tension that Hawkins handles superbly, nibbling away at Rachel’s memories until we, like our sardonic, bitterly honest narrator, aren’t really sure we want to know what happened at all."
adicionada por fannyprice | editarThe Guardian, Alison Flood (Jan 19, 2015)
 
“The Girl on the Train” has more fun with unreliable narration than any chiller since “Gone Girl,” the book still entrenched on best-seller lists two and a half years after publication because nothing better has come along. “The Girl on the Train” has “Gone Girl”-type fun with unreliable spouses, too. Its author, Paula Hawkins, isn’t as clever or swift as Gillian Flynn, the author of “Gone Girl,” but she’s no slouch when it comes to trickery or malice. So “The Girl on the Train” is liable to draw a large, bedazzled readership too

Readers sometimes conflate the “likability” of characters with a compulsion to care about their fate, but with a protagonist so determined to behave illogically, self-destructively and frankly narcissistically (someone even refers to her as “Nancy Drew”), it’s tough to root for Rachel. She’s like the clueless heroine of a slasher film who opts to enter the decrepit, boarded-up house where all her friends have been murdered because she hears a mysterious sound through an upstairs window

The holes in your life are permanent. You have to grow around them, like tree roots around concrete; you mould yourself through the gaps.
All those plans I had—photography courses and cookery classes—when it comes down to it, they feel a bit pointless, as if I'm playing at real life instead of actually living it. I can't do this, I can't just be a wife. I don't understand how anyone does it—there is literally nothing to do but wait. Wait for a man to come home and love you. Either that or look around for something to distract you.
...let's be honest: women are still only valued for two things—their looks, and their role as mothers.
