Sometimes there’s a lot of hype surrounding a book, and you shouldn’t believe it.
Sometimes there’s a lot of hype around a book because the book is just that good.
It took me awhile to get interested in the story, and I never really liked or related to the main character, Rachel. But, I’m pretty sure I wasn’t suppose to like the drunken girl on the train she was.
Rachel’s daily commute on the train to London takes her past the house of a couple she nicknames “Jason and Jess.” Rachel begins to make up a happy life, much different from her own, for the couple. But her imaginary utopia is shattered when she sees “Jess” kissing another man, then never sees her again.
Whether I was supposed to like Rachel or not, I couldn’t stop reading as she attempted to find “Jess” and discovered that their real lives were intertwined.
The Girl on the Train was one of those books that kept me up late because I needed to know what happened next.
