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."

    Great book! I watched the movie afterward. I have to say the book was better! I commute a lot for work and listened to it every minute of my commute.

    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.

  • Mayda T.

    Excellent story. It kept my attention and I looked for quiet times to listen to this “ who done it “ novel.

  • Carmen R.

    Great book! Well narrated!

  • David J.

    Loved listening to this book.

    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.

  • Diane R

    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!
