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 brilliant idea for a book let down slightly in execution. Slow in parts and full of characters that have problems or personality disorders. I think Rachel’s landlady is the only “normal” person in the book. The plot twists and narration were enough to keep me listening to the end (I got my copy from Audible) but unfortunately I predicted the ending about three quarters of the way through the book (pretty obvious as you know the author is constructing a plot twist with a limited number of options or characters). I still enjoyed the book – and I’m glad I don’t have nearly as many problems as the characters in the book!
