Review: The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rachel takes the commuter train every day and looks out of her window at a house with the perfect couple. She doesn’t go to work. She isn’t even sure what she sees, as her addled drunken mind fumbles to make sense of things. Somewhere in the depths of her unconsciousness she’s sure she has the clues to a murder investigation, if only she can stay sober long enough to grasp and analyse what she witnessed.

This is a great book where an unreliable witness sees a range of connected characters involved in a murder. The characters are unlikeable and all of them are sketchy. The plot and murderer are easy to guess. It the mental journey through the fogginess of Rachel’s hazy, drunken mind and how the book is written, that’s good.
