Audio Book 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. . . . [It] is liable to draw a large, bedazzled readership.”—The New York Times
“Marries movie noir with novelistic trickery. . . hang on tight. You'll be surprised by what horrors lurk around the bend.”—USA Today
“Like its train, the story blasts through the stagnation of these lives in suburban London and the reader cannot help but turn pages.”—The Boston Globe

“Gone Girl fans will devour this psychological thriller.”—People 
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.

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?

    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.

    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."

    I consider myself pretty good at guessing the ending of almost everything. I have to admit this one got me, I didn\'t know whodunit until just before the big reveal. Kudos, great listen. Hard to put down, so to speak.

    Girl on the train is: a riveting experience to listeniers;!draws you in where you can't put the book down or, stop listening; should I say. It's awesome! Can you guess who the Killer is?I thought it was someone quite different, not the obvious suspect but someone else other than the person who actually did the killing. Nonetheless it's real, it's a ride, and it has a surprise mid drift an awesome ending.

    Great book! I watched the movie as well and it didn’t do justice for the book.

    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.
