The Girl on the Train

book

My review: “This book is crazy sauce. Gone Girl epic.” And while I have some negative thoughts about Gillian Flynn it seems that Paula Hawkins is piggy backing on the new psychological thriller genre that’s plaguing the nation. Although it’s not super violent like some of Flynn’s books (aka cutting and pulling out people’s teeth). I think Hawkins has a good balance with the reader and the “main” character, Rachel, so you’re unsure of whether you like her or trust her. I say “main” character because the book jumps between three characters, the women in the story. I always enjoy books that flip back and forth between characters. Especially a book like this when you need multiple POVs in order to know what’s going on. I highly suggest this book to anyone who enjoyed Gone Girl or likes a good mystery. You don’t have to take my word for it, it is currently #1 everywhere (B&N, Amazon, etc.)
