The Girl On The Train – Reviewed by SD

The Girl On The Train follows the story from the eyes of three women. Particularly Rachel; an alcoholic who is obsessed with her ex-husband; Tom. She calls him regularly and is spotted outside his house on several occasions but Tom and his wife Anna could be less interested. Despite this, Rachel is a lovely and understandable character who we would hope will get their happy ending.


Rachel takes the train every day and it stops at a red signal where she watches a wife and husband who she doesn’t know. She becomes obsessed with their lives, she calls them Jess and Jason. They have the life she wishes she had, perhaps the life she once had. But the story is thrown straight into action when Megan Hipwell, A.K.A Jess, goes missing. Rachel tries so desperately to play a part in this case. Slowly but surely, the case unravels. Where is Megan? Who is she?

The book is fast-moving and gripping from start to finish. The Girl On The Train is a page-turner and it will have the reader eager to see what’s next, always on the edge of suspense. The mystery unravels beautifully and delicately with many likeable characters. There are so many twists and turns that will have the reader guessing the whole way through and gasping after some chapters, it is the type of story that will stick with you for some time. I highly recommend this book and I would love to read more from the author after having read this book.
