The Zurich Review says:

It's funny that you say you didn't like Anna's perspective so much, because I didn't either! To me she kind of was the most unlikable character and I really didn't even want to know what she was thinking. However I do think it was a necessary evil because it gave us the opportunity to see into Tom's character a bit more …

Great idea. but it felt contrived towards the end in order to create a further superflous twist or two.. .protaganist was oftimes irrational and paradoxical! Let the cozzers do the donkey work!!

I really disliked this book, actually!! I gave it 2/5 stars. The poems in the beginning had my hopes up for sure but I wish that the explanations were a bit less straightforward? The good about it was the prose and how fast paced it was. I liked how quickly I read through it. Beyond that, however, I didn't like any of it. The characters were unlikable, yes, but not just in the intended way. I just found them to be incredibly underdeveloped and sexist. I also guessed the twist way ahead of time so it just was a disappointment for me! I don't read a lot of psychological thrillers but because this was compared to Gone Girl, which I love, I picked it up.

This book was pretty generic imo

Can you do a review the movie vs the book? Or just a review on the movie adaptation?

Lazy win Mystical says:

I read Sharp Objects, Dark Places, and Gone Girl. That made me fall In love with the psychological thriller type of books. I'm just starting TGOTT. And going in with high expectations!

Michelle Palios-Ramsburg says:

I actually found Rachel very likeable. The two characters that I could not stand were "Jess" and Anna. Ughh. I agree with you on the writing style. I did like that the writing style was easy to read and didn't detract from the plot.

The Girl on the Train: A Novel, buy this book for the best price on Amazon:

Vincent Adultman says:

I couldn't put it down. I read it in less than 24 hours. Not as good as Gone Girl, but I would still highly recommend it. I can't wait for the film. Emily Blunt is one of my favorite actresses.

That said, she might be too beautiful for my mind's-eye view of Rachel Watson. Isn't Rachel supposed to be a bit overweight and isn't the alcohol supposed to really be taking an effect? I guess this is more movie conversation, and this is a book review, so it's neither here nor there.

I would give it an 8/10. I agree that the writing is nothing special, but the plot is so compelling. The hardback version I read had large type and room between the lines, making it a quick read, and not as daunting to readers put off by the 300+ page size. I would suggest anyone who likes thrillers give this novel a turn.

Thank You for this review !! Finally someone who understands the character and appreciates her for what she is – I like that we finally have a breath of fresh air with a bit of darker, more real, tangible, credible character – not your typical cookie cut perfect bimbo with the Mary Sue complex

Thanks for this review-I am a huge psychological thriller fan (I've written a few and I've made short films in the genre.)
I will pick this up, I don't read enough to be honest. 🙂 Gone Girl is a masterpiece of the genre in my mind.

shinniex says:

I know this video is old but if anyone hasn't recommended it yet, I would like to recommend The Kind Worth Killing. I think it's much better than Gone Girl and this book. I think you'll enjoy it! 🙂

Donna Panzardo says:

So far only in 80 some pages into this book have to read it for a challenge for one of my goodreads boards. I decided to come on you tube to see if I can get info on it because so far I'm not getting. Maybe it's because my sister didn't like the book and I go into it with knowing that. Your video has helped.

Eri says:

The book was very engaging but I don't think it was well written in terms of characterisation and writing style.

Sasha Polozova says:

Has anyone read The Widow?? By Fiona Barton?

Miriam E says:

I just finished it and I loved it!! I've never read a psychological thriller before, so reading The Girl On The Train was really refreshing. Unlike a lot people, I didn't see the ending coming at all, which I liked, seeing as most of the books I read (ya contemporary) are pretty predictable. I'm now kinda tempted to check out You by Caroline Kepnes, as I heard it was also a psychological thriller, and watching your review makes me want to buy it even more!
