Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She's even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life - as she sees it - is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy.
And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed. Now Rachel has a chance to become a part of the lives she's only watched from afar. Now they'll see - she's much more than just the girl on the train....

Started off really interesting. Couldn't stop listening. Got bored midway through and was sick of the constant referrals to the train.
Thought the ending was poor. Really disappointed:-(

I had doubts, I never should have. Brilliant
Where does The Girl on the Train rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Who was your favorite character and why?
Rachel. The primary character, and her complex personality drove me crazy at times but my support for her throughout never wavered. Accurately narrated. The life of an alcoholic can often be misrepresented, but has I learned through my profession in health care, this depiction never strayed from the reality. Don't let this guide you alone, the story of three women and three men holds you all the way through to its climatic conclusion.
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?
Megan. Again, superbly narrated as the story introduced us to her topsy turvy world.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. I never do, you need a break to build up the anticipation for the next instalment.
Any additional comments?
Only one criticism. The three narrators had separate characters, which of course enabled you to build up pictures of the characters. However, one character (Kamal), was narrated by two. Both narrators used different voices for him, and for several chapters I thought they were different characters, one the real Kamal, the other someone pretending to be him. Obviously now I realised I was wrong, two of the women characters encountered him, and each narrated for Kamal's character too, hence the confusion. In other words, don't draw anything in to it, like this dim wit here :)

Not bad at all.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The author had me guessing who the killer actually was till almost the end. This is one of those books that would be hard to put down. Very entertaining.
