The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins has been talked about quite a bit as “this year’s Gone Girl”. I don’t think that’s quite true, but there are some similarities.
I enjoyed reading it partly because I used to have a long commute and so understood the feeling of being on the train looking at the backs of houses.Cans of gin and tonic on the train are definitely very familiar!
I raced through it pretty quickly and enjoyed the multiple points of view.
I found it more like Before I Go To Sleep than it was like Gone Girl – even saying that might be too much. Reviewing “twist books” is hard.
