The Girl On The Train


Paula Hawkins brought us on the world of complicated circumstances, so vivid that you feel like a close friend of yours is sharing her life story. I have a hint that the author is a commuter – must’d sparked the idea during her daily commute.

The story of crime, failed marriage, battle of deppression, financial struggle due to recently lost job, alcohol addiction, and paranoia are being projected throughout the novel so real that you will have a feel for the characters.

What I appreciate reading this novel is the privilege of finishing this book before I watch its movie adaptation in a widescreen. Details that can be easily missed are explained into details in the book. I’m happy that the storyline in the movie is exactly the same as in the book. Seldom do I encounter that. As far as I can remember, with the books I read to date, the movie plot with the same storyline in the book is Will Smith’s “Wild, Wild West.” I was 14 then if I’m not mistaken. Happy days.

Looking forward reading more of this kind of novel.
