Staff Reviews


What a wild ride! I would not have thought I would be so caught up in the entangled lives of a group of 30ish Londoners. Most reviews cite comparisons to Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn for its unpredictability and gripping narrative. However, Ms. Hawkins has upped the ante with a whole cast of unreliable characters and hidden agendas. Told from the point of view of three female narrators within a shifting timeline that brilliantly reveals their interconnectedness, The Girl on the Train is a fascinating and breath-taking psychological thriller that is both smart and magically engrossing.

“This is one of the most compelling thrillers I have read in years! With alternating perspectives ranging from the fantasies of a young woman who watches a couple from the window of her train commute every day, to the true story of the couple themselves, and a missing person case, the reader is plunged into a twisting, turning mystery of deception and misdirection. Rarely have there been so many shocking revelations in a single novel! Just when you believe you have a grasp on the entire mystery, Hawkins pulls the rug out from under you with yet another breathtaking plot revelation. An exceptional read!”
