Book Review: “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins

Book review of “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins.

Overall Thoughts

This book was entertaining, face paced and left me questioning my fair judgment when it comes to evaluating characters.

I am amazed that this is Paula Hawkins first novel, it honestly does not read like one. I decided not to see the movie first because you know the old saying, the books are always better than the movies so my only first impression of “The Girl on the Train” is from the novel.

Nitty Gritty

The first couple of chapters were a little bit slow, but they had the feeling like they would lead to something more. By page 100, I was hooked. The chapters rolled by and as the narrative voice changed from Rachel to Anna then to Megan, Β each chapter counting down the days till it is revealed who killed Megan.

Ratings Score

I’d give this book an 8/10 it was an excellent read but some parts were a tad slow.
