The Girl On The Train

My mom recommend The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins to me several times before I actually read it. She told me that it reminded her of Gone Girl and she thought I would love it.

The Girl On The Train is told from the perspective of Rachel. Rachel rides the train every day into London and we quickly learn that she is an alcoholic, recently divorced and is in every way an unreliable narrator. Soon into the novel we learn that she watches a particular couple every day during her train ride and makes up a story about them. Then one day, she finds that the information she has about the couple is pertinent to a crime that has been committed. 

As readers we have to figure out who is telling the truth and if we can trust Rachel in anything that she says. In that sense, The Girl On The Train is very similar to Gone Girl- we never know as readers who we can trust!

I would 100% recommend this novel to anyone looking for something great to read. I have also heard that this is going to be turned into a movie so get reading it before the movie comes out!
