The Girl on the Train…Book Review

This book was the choice for Augusts Book Club group I follow on Facebook.
I had completed this book on August 5th…but am just getting a review done on it now…always behind, teehee.

This book is about a woman named Rachel who commutes to work daily on the train.
At a certain stop, she can see into a couple's window and into their life, and imagines what their life is like.
She even comes up with names for these two, whom she has never met.
As the story goes on, she finds out that one of them is missing.
She puts herself into the investigation to try and help the police with finding the missing person.
But as the story unfolds, we learn more about Rachel and her life and realize why this is so important for her.

It was a good read.
The characters were not very likeable, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the book, it kept me on my toes to find out what was going to happen next.
There are so many twists and turns, and goes so much deeper as the story unfolds.
It touches on alcoholism and abuse.

Would I recommend this book..yup.
It is a quick read and one that keeps you coming back for one more chapter ;)

Onto My Day:
Wayne got off of work a bit early and we headed to the cottage.
It was pretty chilly when we got here, so he put on a fire to warm it up.
On the way here, we stopped at Char's Fryer and picked up some french fries.
Now these are the best fries to eat…yummy.

I hope you all had a very creative day :)

  1. Oh my goodness, those fries look yummy!! Have a great evening :)

  2. I've heard both positive and negative things about that book, but I'm glad you enjoyed it, Tracy! mmm, fries...

  3. Sounds like an interesting book, It's very chilly here at the lake too and we are further south. It's still raining too and not much can be done outside. Really yummy looking fries too (so much for the healthy eating LOL)

  4. Does that book look good, yes. Do those fries look good, hell yes! Lol! It cooled off here too, down to the upper 40s over night. I even have on a sweatshirt! Might be time to bring out the fall decorations!

  5. I actually ended up liking Rachel more and more as the book progressed and the reasons for how her life had changed became clearer.
    Could not stand any of them in the beginning.

  6. Great review - will keep an eye out. Those fries look so yummy! TFS


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
