Book Review: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

The Girl on the TrainOne of my favorite bloggers, Caitlin from Healthy Tipping Point, read this book for her own Book a Week challenge and reviewed it on her blog. I love suspenseful page-turners with plot twists, so this seemed like a great book for me. When I saw it at Costco, I knew I had to read it. I didn’t read it from start to finish like Caitlin did, but it was definitely a book that I didn’t want to put down.

This is another one of those books where I don’t want to reveal too much summary because it is full of plot twists from beginning to end. However, this book tells the story of three women and focuses on the connections they have with one another, as well as their broken and current relationships. Here’s a quote:

“Who’s to say that once I run, I’ll find that isn’t enough? Who’s to say I won’t end up feeling exactly the way I do right now-not safe, but stifled? Maybe I’ll want to run again, and again, and eventually I’ll end up back on those old tracks, because there’s nowhere left to go. Maybe. Maybe not. You have to take the risk, don’t you.”

My rating: 5/5 stars. Like I said, I love suspenseful page-turners, and this book was just that. I enjoyed the process of reading this book, and I also enjoyed the ending. This has been said a million times before, but I would recommend this book to fans of Gone Girl or just thriller mysteries in general.
