G is for (The) Girl on the Train

Hi everyone! For my A to Z theme I've chosen to highlight popular books that I've read or want to read. Hope you enjoy!



About the Book (Taken from Amazon summary):

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?

Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

I've seen this book but never got past the name and cover.

This isn't the genre I usually read, but doggone, I am definitely intrigued now.
Thx.

Loved this book. I listened to the Audible. They used three readers for the three main characters, and they were all excellent.
