A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives.
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. 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.
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 offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

Slow and predictable
I never write reviews, but this time I felt I needed to in order to warn those who read the other amazing reviews on this book and think it will be a fast-paced thriller with a twist ending like I did. The story trudges along at a snail's pace, and you figure out the ending about halfway through it. Not a book I recommend. A lot of people are comparing it to Gone a girl, but I feel that Gone Girl is better.
Don't buy the book. It's too predictable with some of the most irritating characters ever developed.
A bit far fetched
This book will definitely have you turning pages because you want to find out "who did it". However, there really isn't enough character development to justify how this book ends. It seemed very far fetched to me. It also became very tedious at points and I had to skim through redundant story lines. I also thought the point of view changing with each chapter has been overdone. It's an ok read, but definitely wouldn't spend $28 on this one.
