The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, Review

​”Hallowness: that I understand. I’m starting to believe that there isn’t anything you can do to fix it. That’s what I’ve taken from the therapy sessions: the holes in your life are permanent. You have to grow around them, like the roots around concrete; you mold yourself through the gaps.”

There are books you fall in love with so deeply, that you never want them to end, so you pace yourself..put the book down when you really don’t want to. I couldn’t do that this time. My hands would not listen to my brain in telling them slow down, take your time. No. Not with this book. An incredible amount of adrenaline mixed with heightend senses from beginning to end.

We all enjoy watching strangers lives or “people watching” picturing what their lives are like, painting the perfect picture of them, “they probably have it better than I do”..etc. It’s usually all fun and games until it turns dangerous & deadly. This is a story about just that. Truly heartbreaking circumstances leading each character to the choices they’ve ultimately decided to make, not only watching their lives unravel before them, but feeling it happen as well.

You will experience chills, you will see the white goose flesh rise on your skin, and you will watch every turn you take.

And you might just think twice about everyone you meet..
