BOOK REVIEW - The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Have you ever been sat on the train, looked out the window and wondered about the lives of the people you see? Relatable, realistic and utterly thrilling, 'The Girl on the Train' by Paula Hawkins gives you an inside look into what happens on the other side of the tracks.

Just like my last book review, I am stepping outside my comfort zone with this particular read and considering that the film adaptation is out in Cinema's now I thought what better time to broaden my reading and find out why it is so popular.

Although it is not the best written book to come steaming into bookshops, there is something about it that makes you keep on reading. And although for the first half I was wasn't sure where the book was going, especially since it is written from three POV's that are a mixture of flashback's and present day, I'm so glad I persevered because all of a sudden it becomes clear and boy is it good.

And the ending - WOW!

Do not be tempted to just watch the film, read the book! I promise you it is worth every minute.
