The Girl on the Train: A Novel

The Girl on the Train: A Novel - Paula Hawkins Rachel Watson has lost control of her life. She is drinking heavily, has gone through a divorce, and now has lost her job. She has continued to play the part of working to keep her land lady from figuring out what is going on, but she just rides the train to and from the place she used to work. She watches people from the window of the train she is on, and imagines what their lives must have been like. She pretends not to see what her old home looks like now, but she cant let it go.

Then it happens, a quick glimpse of something that she was not supposed to see, then a missing person report. She goes to the police, and from there cannot seem to stop entangling herself into the investigation. She begins looking for ways to stay involved, even contacting the husband of the woman who is missing, pretending to be a friend. But things are not always what they appear to be...

This book was one that I was not sure I was going to like or not. It had a rather slow start, but then it draws you in and you have hard time putting it down. I was trying to find a way to stop reading it, but I ended up finishing it within several hours of reading. There were several twists and turns within the book and one huge crash that I did not see coming.
