The Girl On The Train ★★★

Okay, where do I start with this book?? I had read so many reviews on this book and it was a winner for Best Mystery or Thriller on Goodreads, so of course I wanted to read it. I found it on an Instagram bookshop and bought it. Thank You @nightowlbookshop!! You can check out her shop, she has a pretty good selection of books.

So I finally got around to reading this book and I was so disappointed. I wanted to love this book, I really really did! I just couldn't get over how much of a mess Rachel was. Like I had mentioned earlier in a previous post, when I get into a book I really get into it so as I continued to read this book I found myself actually getting mad at Rachel and actually yelling at her (not even joking).

I gave this book a 3 on my scale. The story was good but for me (and this is just my opinion) it was not Best Mystery or Thriller worthy. I'm sorry. I did like that it is written in somewhat of a daily journal entry or recap of the day. There were 3 points of view going on at the same time and I would think that it would be a bit challenging to keep up but it wasn't. Without getting much into it, Rachel takes the train everyday and everyday she passes by a house that she loves. It is owned by a couple "Jess and Jason" and she watches every morning that they have breakfast out on the terrace and eventually feels like she knows their whole life. One day everything changes when she sees something and she eventually decides to tell the police. The next thing she knows she's very much involved in an investigation. Rachel has some serious issues she needs to deal with but (dear Lord) she doesn't seem to want to get herself together. Overall, I liked the book but I did not Love it like I wanted to.

Would I recommend it? I would only because it was an interesting story and if you could get over the fact that Rachel is a (very) Hot Mess then this could be a good book for you.
