      Something bad happened Are you ready for a faster paced, creepier Gone Girl Woah This is one unsettling little thriller and the best bit about it is that no one can be trusted, including the three female narrators who share the storytelling of this book I literally read this entire novel in one sitting and I now need to find the words to convince you to go get your hands on it RIGHT NOW.Between an alcoholic, a liar and a cheat, who can you trust These are the three women at the centre of this bo [...]

      I read this book due to the fact that everyone else read it Yes, mom I would jump off the cliff right behind everyone else.These are some fucked up characters I think the new trend in books where every one of the characters is an asshole may be the way to go if you are writing a book that you want to take the world by storm with The thing isIt gets frigging boring I wanted a bus to hit them all Repeatedly.May go sorta spoilery You have Rachel Rachel is a drunk, she gets on the 8 04 train every m [...]

      I just sent a 3 page, 3,000 word email about why I didn t like this book to a friend, and I still feel the urge to express myself I suppose that tells you just how much I disliked it.This thing is a hot mess, the writing is clumsy, there are things that don t make any sense, the characters are pathetic and the opposite of complex The women in this book are either defined by the men they are dating married to, or by how they feel about being a mother and by that I mean, do they already have a chi [...]

    4. Wendy Darling says:

      4.5 stars Everyone in this book is absolutely terrible, and as a result, this book is a masterpiece in character study and development It s also a well written, precisely plotted psychological thriller, and deftly sketches one unreliable narrator after another I guessed the culprit not too far into the book, but that didn t spoil my reading experience at all, particularly because the author drops so many diverting and convincing red herrings into the story I think it s also interesting that the [...]

    5. Alexandra says:

      Depressing from start to finish Most every single character was a hot mess I have literally no idea why there are so many 5 star ratings It kind of scares me If this kind of garbage is what the masses find appealingI meanI didn t care at all about the mystery It didn t even feel like there was one It just felt like a tedious glimpse into the messed up lives of people I d rather not know anything about.

    6. Regan says:

      Good read but the ending fell a little flat for me

    7. karen says:

      I once read a book by a former alcoholic where she described giving oral sex to two different men, men she d just met in a restaurant on a busy London high street I read it and I thought, I m not that bad This is where the bar is set.oh, yeah this one is going to be a must read for those people looking to find their next Gone Girl experience it s an incredibly fast paced and engrossing psychological thriller, and i was on board as soon as i read the editor s bit of ARC copy, even though i know t [...]

      What a huge disappointment The concept sounded amazing, and it got off to a promisingif slowart But it quickly turned into this messy, melodramatic story that was neither surprising, or original Much like in Gone Girl, there was not a single likable character in the entire book That wasn t the main problem for me, though I could see the ending coming from a mile away Actually like I figured out who the main villan was within the first 20 pages Never a ringing endorsement.

    10. Lisa says:

      I am so disappointed in this one It started out promising enough, but the writing and the drama got old fast There was really only one person who could have done it, and because of that I kept thinking it must be someone else But it wasn t someone else It was THAT PERSON By the time the big reveal happened, I was so ready for the whole thing to just be over already I started out thinking I had a 4 star book in my hands Halfway through I was looking for an excuse to give it 3 stars Finally, with [...]

    11. Steffi ~mereadingbooks~ says:

      this review and on my blog mereadingbooksCaution There might be some ranting ahead.This has frequently been called the next Gone Girl And yes, that is to some extend why I wanted to read this I wanted something suspenseful an unreliable narrator and lots of what the hell moments Out of these three things I got one an unreliable narrator But one written so clumsily and shallow that I was annoyed, not intrigued, by her The plot s mystery falls flat because it is done in such a heavy handed way Th [...]

      Pfffiou I feel like I ve been holding my breath for 325 pages and only now finally exhaled.

    13. Will Byrnes says:

      I read this one out of curiosity Aware that it had been a huge market success, I wondered if it merited the sales According to Riverhead, The Girl on the Train is, or was, the fastest selling adult hardcover fiction debut ever And that is a shame With so many great books being published every year that do little or no business, for this one to have secured a first class ticket on the book sales express can only be dispiriting to the good and great writers everywhere toiling away in third class o [...]

    14. Matthew says:

      I tried to enjoy it I swear I did The hype told me that I had to I wasn t bad, but it was just so so I never really cared about the story and ALL of the characters were unlikeable Sometimes characters are unlikeable in a good way, but not this time.I never found myself disinterested in reading this, but I was never all that excited either.Side note added 4 5 2017 Kinda silly how Girl is in so many titles lately It has to be intentional to ride the coattails of other successful titles I noticed o [...]

      All aboard TRUST NO ONEI have lost control over everything, even the places in my head.What Trust No One Why is that sign on the railroad of this review Is this a The X Files story Oh, no, but certainly the motto of that iconic TV series is a good advice to anyone who dares to aboard this train of thought in this very particular journey to the minds of three women that you may think that they are quite different, butybe notor maybe they dohmember about trust no one we ll even you should not trus [...]

    18. Joanne Harris says:

      This was a perfectly decent, well crafted thriller, which I happened not to like very much, for reasons that have little to do with its craft or its quality This sometimes happens, and it doesn t mean that others won t enjoy it The plot is fast moving and with some real surprises The portrayal of alcoholism is great although I would have liked it to go further into the visceral details, rather than skimming the surface of the theme However and yes, I know it s trivial, but the title I m getting [...]

      This is the perfect weekend read I settled into the story and spent most of Sunday a dark and stormy afternoon reading away Murder.Public Drunkenness.Infidelity Unreliable Narrators.Treat Yo Self.

    21. Jeffrey Keeten says:

      Yesterday sensible, clearheaded, right thinking I decided I must accept that my part in this story was over But my better angels lost again, defeated by drink, by the person I am when I drink Drunk Rachel sees no consequences, she is either excessively expansive and optimistic or wrapped up in hate She has no past, no future She exists purely in the moment Drunk Racheles There are certainly worse ways to spend your day than riding an S stock train into London.Rachel rides the train into London e [...]

      this book suuuuuuuucks.i can t believe it was an international sensation i can t believe it was adapted into a movie starring actual queen emily blunt i can t believe it SOLD A SINGLE COPY i didn t buy this one my mom did so there this is justa straight up bad book on every level the characters are so insanely unlikable it s cartoonish it d be funny if it didn t make EVERY SECOND OF THIS BOOK, EVERY PAGE, EVERY WORD, A FRESH HELL TO FIGHT THROUGH IN ORDER TO GET TO THE NEXT ONE, WHICH IS, GUESS [...]

    23. Raeleen Lemay says:

      3.5 I feel like the main reason I didn t love this book was because of my expectations being way too high I had heard that it was the next Gone Girl , and I can completely understand where that comparison comes from Later in the book, a couple of the characters actually reminded me very strongly of Nick and Amy, which kind of just seemed like too much I wanted to read something along the same vein as Gone Girl, but not an exact replica This wasn t an exact replica, but there were enough similari [...]

    24. Kai says:

      I have lost control over everything, even the places in my head The Girl on the Train captivated me from the first to the last page Everybody was so messed up the alcoholic main character, the promiscous victim, the desperate houswive And don t even get me started on their husbands.The unreliable narrator made this book so spectacularly intruiging Everybody could ve done it Everybody had a motive None of them an alibi I figured it out at some point, but kept telling myself that the author was ju [...]

    25. Debbie says:

      Seems like this train took everyone to Gushland, but I got waylaid in Mediocre ville Comparing this book to Hitchcock is just laughable Okay, okay, it does start out with intrigue, as the girl, Rachel, sits on the train day after day, and obsessively peeks at a house where she can see a man and a woman moving around She gives them names and imagines a perfect life and perfect marriage for them This voyeurism is pretty cool A great beginning.But I wish Rachel had stayed on the train In fact, I wi [...]

    26. Emma Giordano says:

      This book was INTOXICATING I loved every single second of it While I had gone into this story thinking it was going to be packed with suspenseful scenes, the mystery was really in the storytelling It was unexpected but executed SOOOO well A use of an unreliable narrator that propelled the story way beyond what I had originally anticipated Not only was it extremely thrilling and kept me intrigued the entire time, but I seriously appreciated how accurate the representation of alcoholism was While [...]

    27. FrancoSantos says:

      El hijo idiota de Gone Girl Una decepci n enorme El libro empezaba bien, con personajes bien desarrollados y una trama que promet a mucho Sin embargo, conforme iba leyendo se iba volviendo lento y pesado Daba vueltas alrededor de lo mismo y no avanzaba Tambi n era cansino la mentira como herramienta para mantener el misterio Si ese recurso se usa algunas veces, no hay problema, pero en La chica del tren se usa siempre La autora no sab a qu hacer para mantener al lector enganchado y utiliz eso un [...]
