Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
For VERY good reason there is huge hype surrounding this book once I picked it up it was very hard for me to put down.
The Story is told from 3 points of view Rachel, Megan and Anna which works perfectly as it gave totally different aspects to the story. The story kept me on my toes throughout and I did not work out the major twist which occurs. Some Characters were not likable but this did not spoil by enjoyment of the book.
A fantastic debut from Paula Hawkins.
