Publisher Description

The #1 New York Times bestseller, USA Today Book of the Year and now a major motion picture starring Emily Blunt.
 
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple having breakfast on their deck. She's even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Great book. Enjoyed the different approach in writing. Rachel's struggles to regain control of her life very gripping and heartbreaking at times.

Slow and predictable

I never write reviews, but this time I felt I needed to in order to warn those who read the other amazing reviews on this book and think it will be a fast-paced thriller with a twist ending like I did. The story trudges along at a snail's pace, and you figure out the ending about halfway through it. Not a book I recommend. A lot of people are comparing it to Gone a girl, but I feel that Gone Girl is better.

Irritating Characters

Don't buy the book. It's too predictable with some of the most irritating characters ever developed.
