The Girl on the Train
by Paula Hawkins

PBR Review Don't miss this one! THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, a debut novel by Paula Hawkins, is fascinating. This mystery has three different narrators with distinct and clear voices. The story revolves around secrets, alcohol, cheating and lying. You're not sure who to trust or who believe, but you will keep turning the pages. It's entertaining, and I couldn't put it down.

This book leans toward the dark side. And the characters face difficult situations like alcoholism and infidelity to name a few. But they are well written and believable struggling with current issues in today's society. Hawkins cleverly reveals the timeline of a murder mystery. It was a little slow at the beginning but stay with it. It picks up speed and Hawkins delivers a dark and haunting tale. It would make a terrific Book Club book.Back.
Talking Points: This story is a psychological thriller and will get into your head. The flawed characters and the decisions they make will provide endless topics to discuss. Three different voices tell the story leaving plenty of room for interpretation.
