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

A much better read than GONE GIRL with a more satisfying ending. Rachel is as untrustworthy a narrator as Poe’s from “Tell-Tale Heart”. The alternating narrators lend even more instability to the plot. Secrets are revealed from all three women that keep readers guessing as to which of the women ISN’T lying. This book has all of the elements that made me stop reading books written for adults: depression, failed relationships, addiction, and death. The main difference with this book is that Hawkins somehow manages to infuse hope and redemption into a dark story. If, like me, you felt betrayed by GONE GIRL’s ending, Hawkins’s book will begin to heal that wound.
