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?

    Loved loved loved this book! Excellent story and fantastic narration. I liked it far better than the movie, I couldn't stop listening.

  • Krista D

    This was a pretty good book. Slow at times but not overly dramatic like some books. The writer did a great job representing the mental health and addiction aspects of the storyline. The narrators were excellent.

  • Carolyn C

    I was disappointed in the story and in the sad characters. There was little to like in any character. Nothing to celebrate; little to like. It took me ages to make my way through. A chore- I wanted to finish what I had paid for and started.

    Excellent read. Good story line with a unexpected ending. It's easy to relate to the characters.

    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!!

    Loved it! I thought the narrator was terrific. I listened in my car during two long trips I had and I was riveted. Couldn't wait for the next car ride so I finished listening at home with my headphones on!

    I love this book, I couldn't stop listening once I started. The narrator was perfect!
