The Girl on the Train: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Penguin Audio

Date: January 2015

Duration: 11 hours 1 minutes

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.

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?

    Too slow. Not my style.

    I enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator did a fantastic job bring all of the characters to life. While this story started off slow, it picks up speed and keeps your interest with a great twist at the end.

    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 absolutely loved this Audiobook. Took a 3.5 hr drive from Pittsburgh to West Virginia and then back home this past Sunday. I couldn't wait to get thru to the end of this book. Very well spoken and compelling. Terrific ending.

    My first audio book! It was great, have not seen the movie yet so it was very intense! I was getting very eager to find out what happened. I loved the change of characters. Helped stay focused on the book!

  • Katherine Robinson

    Enjoyed listening to the book and getting the different character perspectives. I didn't like the movie, but the book was excellent.

  • Brittany Walker

    A bit confusing to keep up with the different narratives in the beginning, but once in the thick on things, it was easier to understand each character. The author keeps you guessing on who killed Megan and why , until the very end. Truly enjoyed listening to this audiobook.

  • Jennifer Ferguson

    The book was so good that I don't think the movie could stand up to it. It's the type of book that you wish wasn't over.
