What is it about books with ‘Girl’ in the title? Gone Girl, The Girl with the dragon tattoo and now The Girl on the train, they have all been great reads.


This debut psychological thriller by Paula Hawkins is topping all the bestsellers lists worldwide and deservedly so in my opinion.

This is what the sleeve says: 

Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She’s even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. ‘Jess and Jason’, she calls them. Their life – as she sees it – is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Now Rachel has a chance to become a part of the lives she’s only watched from afar.

Now they’ll see she’s much more than just the girl on the train.

I really loved this book. The Girl on the train is gripping and full of suspense; a real page turner with great pace that keeps you engaged from beginning to end.  I  give this book a Dublin Mummy 5 star rating.*
