Nowadays, it doesn’t happen very often that I consciously make time during the day to finish a book, but with The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, it really was a case of being unable to put the book down.
I’m usually not the biggest fan of crime fiction, but I did tear through this story in mere hours. It’s engaging without being obvious about the plotline or the turnout and it’s not too gory either.
I won’t spoil anything for those of you who haven’t read it, but it’s a great read if you like a bit of psychology in your thrillers. I’ve seen this being compared to Gone Girl many times and it does present a somewhat similar set-up and style of writing, so it’s a great addition to the bookshelves of those who loved Gillian Flynn’s novels.
For a quick read that is really gripping and not too frightening, The Girl on the Train is perfect and totally worth the hype.
