Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She's even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. 'Jess and Jason', she calls them. Their life - as she sees it - is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy. And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed. Now Rachel has a chance to become a part of the lives she's only watched from afar. Now they'll see; she's much more than just the girl on the train.… (mais)

Not what I expected, most of the characters were red herrings, the author knew to keep me on my toes. I was infuriated with these characters but kept reading waiting for the other shoe to fall. An awesome thriller!! ( )

Fast paced read but due to the way it's written (from different characters perspective) it can be put down at regular intervals. I didn't like any of the characters but kept reading because it was fast paced and there was enough mystery to it to keep going. It was intriguing and enjoyable. Read some of the other reviews for more information. I've never liked writing book reports! ( )

This book was excellent. It took a while to get into it but then I couldn't put it down. Finished it within 24 hours. ( )

This book was hyped as the next Gone Girl. Let me begin by saying that it's not, and if read with those expectations, it's going to be a disappointment. I had to readjust my approach and read this book with no assumptions in mind. After that, I enjoyed it. (I suspect that most authors cringe when their book is compared to another. Every reader wants to recreate the feeling of reading a book they love. But unless it's the same book, it's going to disappoint. Read each book as the unique creation that it is :-) )

This is a good book. It's suspenseful and well-written, with well developed characters, a strong plot and some twists and turns along the way. But does it have that big jaw-dropping moment where you look at the book in your hand with amazement and say, "Wow. Didn't see that coming?" Not really. I think the comparisons to Gone Girl stem from Hawkins' superb grip on the psychology of her characters.

Don't get me wrong, the book isn't predictable, it's just plausible. There are certain directions that the plot can go, and it goes one of them. There may be a little blindsiding, but I did suspect what ended up happening rather early in the book - although I usually do. That said, the book is enjoyable. It's a quick, fun read. I liked it. And, considering that it's a debut novel, bravo! 4.5 stars. ( )

"...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
adicionada por rybie2 | editarNew York Times, Janet Maslin (Jan 4, 2015)
 
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.
