“That’s what I’ve taken from the therapy sessions: the holes in your life are permanent. You have to grow around them, like tree roots around concrete; you mold yourself through the gaps”.
The Girl on the Train is gripping.. fast-paced.. mysterious.. and I loved the concept. The imagination can be a powerful thing. Like others have said, it’s quite similar to Gillian Flynn with our protagonist the struggling and flawed female, and Rachel is definitely that, but (spoiler!) her husband didn’t really help now did he? All the females are a little dark in this one but they’re also quite strong. When they need to be. I liked that. I also really enjoyed that the story was told from so many different points of views. It changed it up a bit, and influenced your opinions on the characters. Bottom line? The book is definitely worth a read. But be warned – once you start, you can’t stop.
