Title:      Girl On The Train, The
Authors:      Hawkins, Paula
Genre:      Fiction
Pages:      316
Year:      2015
Language:      English
Description:      Another day, another train journey along the same stretch of track looking into the same old London backyards. But one morning, something is different and for Rachel Watson and her overactive imagination, there's no going back. And for the couples she observes in those houses in Blenheim Rd, including her ex-husband Tom, there's no going back for them either.

Unreliable narrators, clever plot and frequent reminders that appearances can be misleading create an engrossing and compelling thriller.

Comments from BDS Reviewers:

"I couldn't put the book down. A gripping story with all sorts of twists and turns."

"It is interesting that the main character is so unattractive - both physically and in her behaviour - and yet the reader still relates to her."

"I enjoyed this book very much and I think group members will enjoy it as an easy read which still makes you think."

"A lively and pacy read - not great literature but a clever plot and one that holds the interest."

"This is a very well written and descriptive book set in modern times - a great read, I couldn't put it down."

"This is a slow, evolving crime thriller that readers of this genre, both men and women, will enjoy."

"The themes are a little shocking, but the language isn't."

"The characters are well-developed, their traits and personalities very believable."
