The Girl On The Train: Personal Review

It has been so long since my last book review, or even write any post for that matter.  My laptop got broken for the longest time and I find that I didn’t feel like typing up long sentences on a tab or mobile phone.  And although my laptop hasn’t been replaced yet, I decided to make do with the family’s desktop.

So on to my thoughts on The Girl On The Train, a book written by Paula Hawkins. I’ve read lots, and I mean, LOTS of fiction books that came out last year and even early this year, and so far, I haven’t read any book yet that surpasses this book as the best.  I like that the one who’s telling the story is from a flawed, and less than perfect person.  This very flaw–her state of drunkenness and blackouts– are what makes the unfolding of the story more suspenseful. There was a point while I was reading the book that I was like, oh I know who the killer is and only to find out later on that I was totally off-base. So I quit guessing and just let myself enjoy reading the book allowing the story to sweep me off according to its own pace.

The Girl On The Train is definitely one good book to read.  I just love it.  So two thumbs up for Ms. Paula Hawkins. 🙂
