The Girl on the Train Reviews
Pfffiou... I feel like I've been holding my breath for 325 pages and only now finally exhaled.
Good read but the ending fell a little flat for me
What a huge disappointment.
The concept sounded amazing, and it got off to a promising...if slow...start. But it quickly turned into this messy, melodramatic story that was neither surprising, or original. Much like in Gone Girl, there was not a single likable character in the entire book. That wasn't the main problem for me, though. I could see the ending coming from a mile away. Actually more like I figured out who the main villan was within the first 20 pages. Never a ringing endorsement.
This was a perfectly decent, well-crafted thriller, which I happened not to like very much, for reasons that have little to do with its craft or its quality. This sometimes happens, and it doesn't mean that others won't enjoy it. The plot is fast-moving and with some real surprises. The portrayal of alcoholism is great (although I would have liked it to go further into the more visceral details, rather than skimming the surface of the theme).
However (and yes, I know it's trivial, but) the title ...more
"Something bad happened."
Are you ready for a faster-paced, creepier Gone Girl?
Woah. This is one unsettling little thriller and the best bit about it is that no one can be trusted, including the three female narrators who share the storytelling of this book. I literally read this entire novel in one sitting and I now need to find the words to convince you to go get your hands on it. RIGHT NOW.
Between an alcoholic, a liar and a cheat, who can you trust? These are the three women at the centre of ...more
"Υπάρχουν άνθρωποι που ζουν μονάχοι..."
Αυτό ακριβώς μου ηρθε στο μυαλό μόλις τελειωσα το "κορίτσι του τρένου",ακομη και
ο τίτλος παραπέμπει σε κατι αόριστο,ανώνυμο και παγερά αδιάφορο για τους άλλους.
Το κορίτσι του τρένου ειναι μια γυναίκα πληγωμένη,φοβισμένη,αυτοκαταστροφική,εμμονική και απίστευτα μόνη.
Διαβάζοντας το βίωσα απο κοντα τις σκέψεις και τις εμπειρίες μεσα απο το μυαλό εκείνης που καθημερινά προσπαθεί να επιβιώσει ενώ αισθάνεται πως ουσιαστικά κάποια προσωπικά της γεγονότα την έχουν ...more
Seems like this train took everyone to Gushland, but I got waylaid in Mediocre-ville. Comparing this book to Hitchcock is just laughable. Okay, okay, it does start out with intrigue, as the girl, Rachel, sits on the train day after day, and obsessively peeks at a house where she can see a man and a woman moving around. She gives them names and imagines a perfect life and perfect marriage for them. This voyeurism is pretty cool. A great beginning.
But I wish Rachel had stayed on the train. In fact ...more
Depressing from start to finish. Most every single character was a hot mess. I have literally no idea why there are so many 5 star ratings. It kind of scares me. If this kind of garbage is what the masses find appealing...I mean..
I didn't care at all about the "mystery." It didn't even feel like there was one. It just felt like a tedious glimpse into the messed up lives of people I'd rather not know anything about.
