There’s a new girl in town. The Girl on the Train is a riveting new thriller by first time novelist Paula Hawkins.
With alternating points of view, plenty of twists and turns, and the sense that things are not quite what they seem, this Girl bears some resemblance to the blockbuster best seller Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.
The story centers on a lonely woman who peers into the life of a young couple she sees from the train she takes each day to and from her home on the outskirts of London.
Is her interest in these strangers just a way to pass the time, or is it an obsession that will lead to harm?
Reminiscent of a Hitchcock thriller, The Girl on the Train takes the reader into the lives of seemingly ordinary people and asks:
How well do you really know someone?
Be forewarned. Once you pick up this novel, you won’t be able to put it down.
