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 know 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?
I’ve never read a book like The Girl on the Train before. I can’t stop thinking about it. I heard a lot of great things about it before I even got it, but it totally lived up to my expectations. This review will not contain spoilers, but it is a book I would go into knowing as little as possible.
