Girl on the Train

Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins is a must read for any mystery or psychological thriller fan. Rachel’s mornings are pretty routine. Everyday she gets up and takes the same train, watches the same couple have breakfast, and sees the same suburban homes out her window. But one morning she sees a glimpse of something that looks like criminal activity.  Was someone killed?  Rachel decides the best thing to do is to report her sighting to the police, but now she is tangled up in the mess and questioning if she has caused more problems.

I really enjoyed this book.  The story is told through flashbacks and alternate characters which has you trying to piece together all of the clues while building the suspense of not knowing.  The other aspect that adds to the suspense is that the narrators are unreliable. You never really know if you are being told the truth which leaves you questioning everything.  Needless to say, the story became quite addictive since I wanted to know what really happened.
