The Girl on the train by Paula Hawkins
I found this book at my local bookshop, I'd heard of it before but couldn't remember why. I took a quick look at the blurb and it sounded like my sort of book so I gave it a go.
Synopsis from Paula Hawkins website reads:
I read this book over 4 - 5 days around Christmas, it was a different style of read to what I'm used to but a comfortable read. Written in first person switching from different characters points of view, the three female characters Rachel, Anna and Megan in a diary entry sort of style. It got me after just a few pages and had me wanting to read on.
I particularly enjoyed Rachel's point a view. An alcoholic divorcee going through a rough time who watches out the window on her train journeys. She was an interesting character who I wanted to find out more about and I liked the character progression of.
The story rolled along well with some great twists and turns, I wasn't particularly a fan of the very end. I feel that could have been better, it does leave an opening for a follow up though.
I'd definitely recommend it and gave it a 4 star rating on Goodreads.
I realised after reading it that I own other books by this author, in fact she wrote one of the books I read and reviewed earlier this year. Find out more here.
