Winner of the 2016 Audie Award for Audiobook of the Year.

Includes an exclusive extract from Paula Hawkins' scorching new thriller A Slow Fire Burning, read by Rosamund Pike.

Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She's even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. 'Jess and Jason', she calls them. Their life - as she sees it - is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy.

And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough.

Now everything's changed. Now Rachel has a chance to become a part of the lives she's only watched from afar.

Now they'll see; she's much more than just the girl on the train...

'Gripping, enthralling - a top-notch thriller and a compulsive read.' SJ Watson, bestselling author of BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP

  • Natasha K.

    I really liked this book. it was well written and was an interesting story. I liked how each character had their stories told . And how relevant they were to each other.

  • Patryk K

    Interesting sorry, but narrators destroy all the fun...

  • Lana G

    Struggled to get into the book. But eventually the pace increased enough for me to listen till the end.

  • Alexis E

    This was quite a slow paced book and one of the narrators sounded like the voiceover lady from Masterchef, but it was fairly enjoyable. I wasn't that bowled over by the plot but the writing was clever and insightful.

  • Janet T

    I really enjoyed the mystery!

  • jodi k

    I found this book slow , the story line was good , but just dragged out.

  • Nicola C

    Loved it! I'm such a slow reader and knew I'd never read it so decided to listen to it and finished it in 2 days I was so hooked!

  • Helen Coglan

    I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery thriller. Sometimes I fell asleep (only because it was at the end of a long day). I would wake, flick back a chapter or two and try to work out where I was up to. I would have liked to more easily see the name of the narrator (when the topic and narrator changed). This would have enabled me to find my place a little more easily! I didn't want to sleep; I just wanted to know what was going to happen next!.

  • Barbara Kisting

    It was enjoyable just listening to something than reading for a change.

  • Hayat Askar

    What an amazing book that you could not feel the time when reading it. It makes you feel everyone is a murderer, until you are surprised about who the real murderers are. I feel like I am on the train with Rachel. I felt sorry for Megan, loved Rachel and ultimately loved Anna. Such a one-of-the kind story. First experience with audiobooks, and not the last i think.

  • Elizabeth van Wyk

    The narration was done well, but I found too many repetitions in the story.

  • Vicky Bolding

    Really enjoyed. Easy to listen to and follow. Narrated at a nice easy to listen to pace.

  • Rachel Oliver

    I did enjoy it and could feel the characters just not great but good.

  • john ballesteros

    Although I like the twist at the end, the story progressed too slow for me (I kept waiting for something to happen). Narration was alright.

  • Carmen Ward

    Kept me guessing. A good story and very well read.

  • Caroline Murray

    Fairly good story but I found it a bit slow going. Good insight into alcoholism Narrator did a good job.

  • Anna Merenkova

    Liked the narrating. Guessed the ending quite early but enjoyed listening to it still to the very end.

  • Melissa Hislop

    This book keeps you guessing.

  • Flavia Mendes

    Good story. Lots of drama, mystery and twists. Worth the read/ listen!

  • Cornelia Van der Bank

    The narrators were brilliant! And the book was well written.

  • Catalina Gamble

    Great read! Kept me wondering all the time, didn't want it to end. Loved it!

  • Amy Winton

    Loved it! Such a great story, didn't want to stop listening, leaves you guessing until the end.

  • Phillipa Fraser

    Excellent, exciting and thought provoking book . Narration make it clearer with more impact. Thank you audiobooks for getting it right.

  • Amanda Heeazo

    Awesome book! It keeps me focused as I drive 14 hours. Good twists!

  • Grant Cooper Sims

    the voices were what did it for me ... story was ok ... but could listen to them voices all day :-)

  • Greshim Kesari

    An excellent Read. The narrators make an excellent book even better.

  • Kim Healy

    This was a little slow to begin with. It did improve and was particularly captivating in the final third. This was my first audio book and I found the narration quite annoying.

  • Sophie Ransom

    Really great narration, having multiple female voices really helped the story line, otherwise it would have been a bit confusing. I don't think I'll bother seeing the movie as I don't think they'll do it justice.

  • Jay Z

    The narrators were brilliant! And the book was well written. This was my first audiobook and I truly enjoyed it. Good job!

  • Samantha Dunn Ladegourdie

    So good! Very well written. Great story line

  • Marinda Palmer

    Brilliant story!

  • Jess Mitchell


  • Maia Silverthorne

    Great book. Really enjoyed it! Narration very good also.

  • Ian Ritchi

    First audio book and will definitely be listening to more. Riveting narrative and a great story.

  • Kim Fredrik T. Rognerudengen

    Awsome!!! So thrilling. My favorite audiobook so far. Recommended this for friends. And the narrators are incredibly talented!

  • Jane Butler

    I really enjoyed the story. Very easy to listen to and well narrated.

  • Terry Chirgwin

    I could not stop listening. The narrators were brilliant!

  • Estelle Philp

    Excellent. Riveting. Anna's narrator didn't suit her character.

  • Naomi Greaves

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and my first audio-book experience. A gripping story which was narrated beautifully.

  • Raju George

    Enjoyed the book. Couldn't stop listening to it. First audio book and now I'm hooked to audio books

  • sean kelly

    I had been looking at the book in shops for awhile and finally decided to give it a go, and was NOT disappointed. It was a worrying description of how easy it would be to play with peoples emotions and an insight into how scared people can be after a break up. Has made me start to look at drinking in a different way. Great read.

  • Rebecca Thomas

    Went a bit slow in the begining but by the middle of the book its full of suspense . Two out of the three narrators were good but the third was very boring, and annoying. Sounded like a robot with a British accent.

  • Sarah Laverick

    Loved it disappointed It has ended! Yet I raced to get to the end.

  • Sharron Colton

    Excellent First attempt at Audio books Gripping and unrelenting

  • Leeanne O\'Connor

    WOW! a great drama! Very enjoyable. I listened to half an hour each night - really intriguing.

  • Mirjana Glavonjic

    Really enjoyed it. It starts as a relaxing read, but turns into difficult life story.

  • Barbara Simpson

    This was the first audio book I have listened to and I really enjoyed it.

  • Susan Brown

    Book was enjoyable. Narration good, although the count duckula impression got a bit much at times! Other then that, really good.

  • Caronwen Gourlay

    This book was about an 8/10. Narration was really good but the story went on too long for my liking and the end was predictable from quite early on. The main character I found very likable. Good just not great.

  • Sophie Colvine

    Great thriller we enjoyed listening to on a long drive.

  • Gary Bowman

    Didn't get the hype this book has received. An OK suspense read although rather slow at times. Struggled to warm to any of the characters which made listening a bit of a drag.

  • Kylie Lauster

    Great book and narration was fantastic / engaging.

  • Gideon Van Zyl

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I normally just listen to audiobooks on my way to and from work, but this one gripped me so that I stayed up until late night listening - 'just one more chapter!'. I thought it was very well written from the different perspectives and this was expertly captured by the different narrators. I'll definitely recommend this one!

  • Michael Jones

    Great suspenseful thriller, great story, great perspective, well written with excellent acting/narrating. Recommended reading this

  • Sif Bodvarsdottir

    Good book overall. A bit slow at times.

  • Helena Kim

    First book on Compelling plot and sympathetic characters. The narrator is excellent. Listening to it while on stationary bike and it's helping me stay on longer. Unrelated to the book: chapters can be easier to navigate or to plan listening time if each chapter had its own time tracker instead of cumulative/scaled time track.

  • Jocelyn Baldwin

    Very easy listening, good suspence, couldnt stop listening. This was my first book.

  • Emma Pocock

    Enthralling, great to listen to during the commute. My first audio book and what a choice.

  • Harjeet Singh

    very absorbing. a good suspense. . But. some times slow moving.

  • Alison Casey

    Fantastic first audiobook..gripping!!! Loved it !!!

  • Shalese Hertzke

    Gripping story. Great use of emotions and perceptons to create a twisting plot.

  • Jaynie Court

    Loved every bit of it! Easy to follow and hard to stop listening gripping stuff!

  • Brett Rogers

    Very engaging story. This was my first audiobook and I am a complete convert to the format. The narration was excellent and was the reason I got through the book so quickly.

  • Paula Balchin

    Very descriptive story & very well read. Really felt like I knew the characters & was on their emotional roller coaster throughout the story.

  • Gemma Black

    The Girl on the Train was an excellent book, the proverbial page turner. The narration was superb and I couldn't wait to continue listening at every turn. I even did more exercise just to finish listening to the book. Great job all 'round.

  • clare palmer

    It was great while I was walking. Very thrilling.

  • Emma Louttit

    Great book. Couldn't stop listening to it. Would highly recommend this.

  • Penny Hare

    omg what a story kept me enthralled till the end. After a slow and sad start it unfolded into a wonderfully gripping tale.

  • Monique Bachtis

    Very well written book great twist at the end and kept me interested the whole way through. A must read to all suspense lovers.

  • Ed Napiorkowski

    Chose this particular story as it was listed as one of the best audiobooks for 2015. Quite honestly I found snippets of it to be very tough to wade through and other sections brilliantly enthralling. The story is told in the first person by the main characters of the book, flipping forward and backward in time and ultimately drawing all their threads to a conclusion in the end. The majority is told from the perspective of the girl on the train and you get to know here and all her problems very well. I think the concept of the story (the girl on the train who sees something) is terrific, however I eventually found the back and forth approach between the characters telling the story a but tedious and at times rather frustrating. The characters are very different from each other and on the positive side the way their lives overlap as the story unfolds is the brilliant part. No spoilers from me but in my view the "who done it?" is not who you expect. Glad to get to the end and rate it as three stars.
