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?

    This was a pretty good book. Extremely slow in the beginning, well almost midway, but it really kicked up speed in the last 3 or so hours of the last part of the book. As long as you don’t mind a slow start it’s a great read.

    I really enjoyed listening to my first audio book in a very long time. Very exciting listen. I just couldn’t stop and finished in 2 days!

    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!
