Recently tore through the thriller novel The Girl on the Train. It immediately struck me as a well-written, intriguing, mystery- thriller. I found mysefl trying to piece together these fragmented memories of the main character, Rachel. What did she see? What did she forget? How did she get involved?
The novel moves along briskly as you meet different characters and wonder if and how it’s all connected. Kind of like a puzzle you are desperately trying to put together, right along with the main character.
The film version is going to be released on October 7, 2016, limited. Starring Emily Blunt, it promises an interesting film along the lines of Gone Girl.
The themes of memory, loneliness, loss play throughout the story and lead to a dramtic climax.
