2.5 stars maybe slightly lower. I didn't like it so I can't give it three stars.

I found this to be a pretty dull book. I didn't find this thrilling at all. Essentially, this is a story about three women and their relationship to men. However, this book never really dove in on that theme. Of course, not every book has to be some grand statement about the state of the world but this book just isn't interesting as a reflection just on these women's lives. So much of this book is a less that interesting view at how Rachel's life has been messed up because of her drinking. I never felt the sympathy for the characters that I think this author was trying to provoke. There was a lot of stuff about motherhood in here that I just couldn't relate to. Rachel is "desperate" for a child but seems to never consider adopting which I will never be able to understand. Just because a child isn't genetically related to you doesn't make the child any less yours. I'm not going to be mad at this book for exploring the topic of motherhood. That can be a very compelling topic to explore. It just made the story less interesting to me and I felt like there was a more interesting way to approach the topic. The conclusion was completely believable but very quick and not particularly satisfying to me. It wrapped up so fast and didn't give me a good sense of where everyone's lives were going. I think this book could be a favorite for some people but because of the style of this book and the theme's it explored didn't make it interesting for me. ( )

Rachel has ridden the train every morning for two years to a nonexistent job in order to perpetrate the fantasy that she is still working. While on the train, she passes the house where she used to live with her husband Tom who is now her ex and living in the same house with his new wife and young daughter. Rachel also sees a young woman who sits outside drinking her coffee every day often with her husband near by and daydreams about the wonderful, happy life they must have. When she finds out that the young wife has gone missing, she inserts herself into the investigation, knowing that she was there the night of the disappearance, but she can't remember what happened because she was drunk once again.

The Girl on the Train is a twisty mystery with numerous suspects and an abundance of clues, a number of which are red herrings. The book reads very quickly because there is so much suspense that the pages turn quickly. However, to have so many turns in the story, it becomes very contrived until it is beyond belief. In addition, none of the characters are truly happy, leaving a feeling of depression and hopelessness. Overall, The Girl on the Train is a well-written mystery and should satisfy most mystery buffs, but there is very little in it that makes it enjoyable to read. ( )

Pretty solid, sharply written suspense novel. The twist was not quite as shocking as I wanted to be. But an above average, page-turning, psychologically sharp thriller. I'm wavering on giving it four stars, I was engaged throughout, but didn't find it raised my pulse like a great thriller will do. ( )
  usuallee | Oct 7, 2021 |
Creeeeeeepy and really surprising towards the end. 4.5 stars to be exact as it feels just a little detached from reality, not because it's unbelievable to have characters with these issues, but more of how they are ALL connected to one another somehow.

For the most part of the book, I couldn't put it down because it was thrilling. ( )

It was truly unexpected! So intense until the ending a little twisted but duh 🤔

"...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.
