The Girl on the Train…

As part of my Reading Challenge this year, I am attempting to read one book a week in order to hit my target of fifty-two books this year. This weeks’ book was The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, which was a birthday gift from the hubby! There is so much love bouncing around the universe regarding this book, which can either be a really good thing, or a really bad thing. Thankfully, this book is absolutely marvellous and definitely lives up to the hype. From the moment I picked it up I was hooked. It’s incredibly well written and my interest only escalated as the story evolved. Paula takes you on a journey where you will cringe, worry, ponder and become completely committed to the characters (although by the end the only one I liked was Evie!). The way that they are developed is brilliant and there is a part of me that won’t accept that they are fictional. I pretty much read anything from romantic novels to biographies and this thriller had me talking myself into reading ‘one more page’ every time I picked it up.

Read it if:

  • You love a thriller
  • You enjoy drama
  • You like to be taken on a journey 

Best bits:

  • The development of the characters
  • The twisting storyline
  • The flow

Worst bits:

  • I did find Rachel a bit annoying at times (although it’s all part of her character)

I’ve heard on the grapevine that there will be a film based on this book that is out later this year. I can’t wait to see it!

Have you read anything that’s excited you recently?
