Rachel takes the same train to the same place everyday. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens.  Once there, her gaze starts searching for a particular house occupied by a couple whom she envisions as a perfect pair. She has even named them as “Jess and Jason”.


She desires to be a part of their life. If only she could, until one day she sees something shocking. Though just for a minute before her train jerks again, what Rachel has witnessed at that same signal is enough for her to get involved in the puddles of a dark mystery.


What happens next is a puzzle which when unfolds will dig out the deepest secrets of her own life.



My Words


I know I haven’t given a  detailed review of this book compared to my other reviews. This is because I loved this book so much that I didn’t want to exploit your excitement of reading it by sharing anything more than the core story line.


An amazing thriller, The Girl On The Train is  GRIPPING like anything. I loved the writing style, very creative yet subtle.


Highly recommended to fiction lovers. You will surely find it different from all the other thrillers.
