Summary
The #1 New York Times Bestseller, USA Today Book of the Year, now a major motion picture.
 
The debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives.
 
“Nothing is more addicting than The Girl on the Train.”—Vanity Fair

“The Girl on the Train has more fun with unreliable narration than any chiller since Gone Girl. . . . [It] is liable to draw a large, bedazzled readership.”—The New York Times
 
“Marries movie noir with novelistic trickery. . . hang on tight. You'll be surprised by what horrors lurk around the bend.”—USA Today
 
“Like its train, the story blasts through the stagnation of these lives in suburban London and the reader cannot help but turn pages.”—The Boston Globe

“Gone Girl fans will devour this psychological thriller.”—People 
 
 
EVERY DAY THE SAME
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. 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.

UNTIL TODAY
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 goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

The story was slow-moving. The more I got to know the main character, the less I liked her. This was true for all the characters, really. I only finished it because I wanted to know "who dunnit."

The narrators were phenomenal and were the only part that made the book interesting. If it weren't for the reviews saying the ending was amazing, I would have never finished the book. It dragged on forever! If you want a great twist with far better writing, read some of Harlan Coben's work.

Girl on the train is: a riveting experience to listeniers;!draws you in where you can't put the book down or, stop listening; should I say. It's awesome! Can you guess who the Killer is?I thought it was someone quite different, not the obvious suspect but someone else other than the person who actually did the killing. Nonetheless it's real, it's a ride, and it has a surprise mid drift an awesome ending.

Frustrated. pretty much sums up how I felt about this book. I really wanted to like it. there was so much potential but ugh I kept finding myself fussing at the main character, annoyed by the people in her life who just let her decline. The narration was the bright spot in the book for me.

When you start "The Girl on the Train" you are not sure where the book is going but it hooks you fast. When you are deep into the book, its tone reminds me of "Deadly Partnership: Murder, Blackmail and Voices from the Spirit World" by Richard Gardner.* It was creepy and haunting and there was lots of alcohol. When you get to the end. Oh, oh, so satisfying. Homework: Look for the number three in "The Girl on the Train" because it pops up a lot. Look for its significance.

I can't say that I liked this book. It's quite dark,particularly for me as I am a psychiatric nurse. But I found the story so compelling that I had a hard time putting it down. The twists and turns weren't unexpected, but the ending was. This is a well written story, and well narrated. I recommend it!

So this was my second audiobook to listen to. The narrator was okay. It was a hard listen at first because the story kept jumping to different character but as you continue to listen you pick that up and it keeps you guessing what the heck is going on until the very end!! SMH. How in the world did I miss the crazy character in the beginning!! They seemed so normal. I'm glad that I kept listening. Be ready to really listen so that you can keep up otherwise you could get lost quickly!!

I normally read Tom Clancy (so I am clearly not the audience here) But I came in with an open mind due to all the hype. It was an ok story but just kind of boring until the very end and the 3 main female characters were just so pathetic and weak (once again until the very end) it was hard to like them or anyone else in the book. Did not really enjoy it at all and was a pretty big let down.

Fantastic read...I loved the slow start as we get to know Rachel..once the other characters were introduced, the pace quickened and the details gripped...and by the time the climax of the story arrives it's as if you've been on your own train ride..slowly picking up speed with each plot twist and eventually pulling back into the station. The movie was inferior in every way to the book. Highly recommended read!

I thought the book was pretty good. Slow at first. For much of the first half the change in dates narratives was hard to follow but by midway through I understood the importance of this and saw why it was needed. I liked the three narrators but in some cases was distracted by the choppy-ness of the voices during the storytelling. It was suspenseful in some areas but only a 4 because it was a bit predictable. However, it was short, so it was worth the listen.

Dull, dull, dull. The book could have been 90% shorter and still have had the same character development. I never liked alcoholics, who drink to blackout, as the protagonist anyway. And, no, people don't get those memories back. They are not repressed; they are never created. Too much female angst, too much alcoholic self-loathing, and too much unlikely interference in an active police investigation. It was really rather awful. The narration was silly with Clare Corbett and Louise Brealey trying to sound like a man.

Great book! The narrative was a 5 and wonderful for Rachel and Meghan, but Anna was not good, which is why I gave it a 3 all together. I honestly wanted her to stop telling me the story it was so bad. She talks like she is reporting me the news, like a news anchor saying everything in a monotoned voice. I don't get how they let her talk like that, just odd. Besides that, this book is a 5 and I can't wait to see the movie!

This book has been consistently compared to "Gone Girl" but Hawkins is a much better writer than Gillian Flynn abd her characters are far more interesting. This book had me gripped from the first sentence to the last, it's a murder mystery, a tragedy and at times a bittersweet comedy, all rolled into one, with protagonists you will root for even when they exasperate you. Really well done. If you want a cannot-put-down thriller without the ugliness of Flynn's book this us for you. Outstanding narration breathes the story into life.

If you are looking for the anatomy of an alcoholic and the story of three depressed, and I mean depressed girls, this is the book for you. I was looking for a murder mystery, and this was not it until the very end of the book. Approximately 10 hours of the story were terrible, unbearable. I have a pact with myself to finish any book I start; this one almost made me break that pact. The last 30 minutes or so were good, mainly because it was finally about the murder. The rest of the book was, thinly, the murder plot, but was mostly just depression pouring out from three pitiful human beings. It was so terrible and depressing that I quit listing while I would run; it was too depressing and boring. Seriously, it was awful. On the other hand, the narrator did a great job, especially given the awful story she was required to narrate.

A poor man's "Gone Girl" - Girl on the Train has a very unlikable protagonist that somehow bumbles her way through a murder mystery. Somewhat entertaining, somewhat annoying, this book finds the perfect balance of pity and heroism to keep the reader interested, but that's about it. Would not recommend.

I enjoyed the story- it gave me an excuse to take long walks with my dog as I listened and conjectured about the plot line.. The book is a typical whodunnit, nothing particularly special about it to be honest but still addicting enough to listen to that I finished it in about 3-4 days. The narrators for Rachel and Megan were great but I found the narrator for Anna's character to be overbearing and sounding like a newscaster.

A very good book that I would recommend. It is written in first person but chapters alternate between characters - therefore you get the perspective of the same event from different points of view. I found this writing style to be very interesting. From an audio point of view, I would love to hear more distinguishable voices for the different characters.

It's possible the audio narration improved the story line. I was weary when this book was compared to Gone Girl, by G Flynn (which, for the record I enjoyed, but it's a bit "cast typing" for suspense fiction), however the story and characters are more realistic and relate able, while maintaining fluid and intriguing plot. I really enjoyed.

This is a really good choice in the suspense/thriller genre, and I would have given it 4 stars, but I really feel the story is better actually read than listened-to.

This book is an investment - it starts off feeling insipid but picks up steam the longer it goes on. Hawkins succeeds in creating a truly despicable villain, but the journey on which she takes us to get there feels less natural than it does like a magician relishing an audience's perplexity over where the surprise trick will come into play. The twist is something that you *may see coming early on, especially if you've read any novels by Tana French or Gillian Flynn lately. This is definitely a psychological thriller, that fits in with the generic obsession with sociopaths that has gripped popular literature since Hannibal Lecter first came on page. This is a good treatment of that subject, definitely worth the press and at least one read - but I'd be lying if I said I didn't think there were better ones out there.

The three readers who brought this story to life were awesome! That said, Paula Hawkins' sordid tale of murder and hatred had but one redeeming feature: it got us from Point A to Point B on a long road trip home. While the descriptions of daily life in the London suburbs may have had a semblance of reality, the plot was so thin it could have been Substituted for Seran Wrap . Half way through the this meaningless saga, both of us listeners nailed the culprit. Oh, there were insights into the alcoholic mind and some questions about who might have done it early on, but quite frankly, had we not been traveling and only had this audiotape on the iPhone, I doubt either one of us would have read to page three. Overall, we'd gave it one star. Sorry Ms. Hawkin's, your audience deserves better.

Very repetitive with respect to several characters. We grasped the depth of Rachel's problem immediately, we didn't have to hear about it over and over and over. My husband and I thought the story was about one hour too long (out of 11+ hours.) Nonetheless, it was a good plot and ending and, despite the over-descriptive narrative, we enjoyed it. The narrator did a great job. However, both my husband and I looked at each other at the end and thought that these were three very stupid women who should have known better.

Wonderful story, I want to forget it and listen again! My only complaint is the narration. Rachel's voice is good, but Megan and Anna are sooooooo annoying. Megan's is way too dramatic/whiney, and Anna's is kind of trashy sounding. They announce their name before beginning narration and the way she says "Anna" makes my skin crawl.

I did not find the ending predictable at all and the twists and character development were first rate. The story is not a happy one, so I gave it 4 stars for that reason. I prefer a little more light-heartedness in my books, but I still recommend it.

Well written, balanced, in all the right ways, a real treat. Narration was wonderful. I found it a perfect listen for long commutes and difficult to stop until I had finished the book!

Loved this book from the start. The narration was wonderful! Not like some others I've heard which were completely annoying. Couldn't stop listening. Now I'm looking for another book, that will grip me like this one.

I had to power through the this book due to it being completely depressing and frustrating. The characters are stupid, weak, and pathetic. The ending was predictable and welcomed. At the end, I just wanted everyone to die. I have no idea how this book got such high ratings. I'm completely disappointed. The narrators did a great job though!

I'm so glad I finally buckled down and gave this book a chance. It was the perfect psychological thriller! Definitely didn't see the ending coming and it was great.

I won't lie - the beginning hour of the book bored me somewhat. However, the story line kept me wondering more and more. So I kept listening and found myself lost in the story. Stayed up late just to finish the audiobook, and the two nights that I didn't stay up, I could hardly sleep!!! Wonderful narrators and the story line keeps you grinding your teeth, trying to guess who the killer is. It's like a puzzle! I love this book.

interesting book/storyhis was definitely a "psychological" thriller as described, seeing as every single character had their own issues and you could see how their experiences affected their crazy actions. I found myself shaking my head at the main character on several occasions as if to ask her, "Really girl? Are you sure you want to do that?? Come on now... Don't be stupid." It was a bit of a slow start, some pages seemed to go on and on about nothing really, except how drunk the character was. At least it made me feel good about myself, like, " Wow... Thankfully I have never hit that bad of rock bottom before." The last 1/4 of the book was definitely the best part, and when the plot twist unfolded, it all made sense. It wasn't as big of a surprise as I was expecting though.

This book is the perfect example of a murder mystery thriller. A relatable alcoholic rides a train and turns out to be a Nancy Drew type character. Very easy read and very enjoyable to anyone who enjoys trying to solve the crime and read the clues. Different narrators and perspectives also make it quite enjoyable.

I wasn't impressed with the story. I don't know if it was written before or after gone girl but the "twists" didn't excite me like they did in Gone Girl. I pretty much had the big picture of the plot figured out and I wanted to to just end but then when it did just end, I wasn't thrilled with how the ending felt flat. It's like all the creativity was used up by the time it came to "wrap it up". I think it would have been better to read this book then to listen to it. I was a little confused at first because I couldn't keep up to which character was talking until I finally started to recognize the narrators voices. I just gave up trying to figure out the timeline . The narrators were excellent although sometimes difficult to hear their words when they were talking in a lower voice or whispering . It seemed muffled at those points. It also seemed a little sad and depressing the entire time but that's because I let books effect my mood.

I have been having difficulty sitting down to read a book for the last year and a half and I love to read. I found audiobooks and began listening to "The Girl on the Train". I became captured immediately by the book. The storyline sucks the reader in immediately. You see I have tinnitus quite badly which is a ringing in my ears. I become distracted quite easily. The book itself kept my attention as well as the app! Having someone read to me without a monotonous voice was great. I have payed this book forward to others by recommendation! No wonder it is on the best seller list! Now for my next read! I believe my journey into reading all types of literature will continue!

I found it very difficult and unexciting to get through 3/4s of the book. The last 1/4 was better. I would probably not have chosen to read this book, it was assigned through my book club. The narration however was one of the best. It definitely helped get me through the book.

This was one of the most tedious books I've ever listened to. Admittedly, given the central character's issues, tedium and self-absorbancy should be expected, but I almost didn't finish the story. Glad i did though, because the finale was well done.

This was a decent book, but a little slow. If you're looking for a non-stopped action book, this probably isn't for you. The narration is very good, and the storyline did have me hooked by the end, but there is a lot of set up. The character development, as some other listeners pointed out, is excellent. Your feelings toward the protagonist(s) ebb and flow as the plot develops. Worth a listen.
