“The Girl On The Train” by Paula Hawkins

Genre: Mystery/Crime

Main Characters: Rahel, Megan, Scott, Tom, and Anna

Stars:  ★★★★​

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people’s lives.

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?


A friend of mine (Tracy) from work handed me this book and said that she really enjoyed this one sooo much! And since I love reading crime/mystery genre too, I told her I will give this a try.

I didn’t know what really to expect when I started reading this book. The narration is good, but could be quite confusing on some parts. The pacing of the story is quite slow, since the author decided that it would be fun if we suspect all the characters on these story as the killer. But nonetheless, it is really a good book written brilliantly.

I won’t say who’s the killer here because I don’t want to burst your imagination if you decided to grab this book too in your nearest bookstore. But I will definitely recommend this one, although don’t expect any thrilling effects like the one that you can get in reading John Grisham or Dan Brown book. But still, just the same, you won’t be able to put this book down until you know who’s the killer.

I can say that this one is really highly recommended! Grab one now!
