The Girl on the Train Book Summary


A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives.

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. 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 breakfasting 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 offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

  • A Predictable Mess

    This Book Was ALL OVER the place!!! Kept having to go back to Chapters, & figure out what Day I was On!!?? Didn't mind, the different characters perspective!! However, would've been a MUCH SMOTHER & BETTER READ, if the storyline was told, chronologically by each individual!!
  • Best book ever!!!

    The main character is the worst. It was hard to get through because she was so annoying. I think you're supposed to sympathize with her but it's impossible to do so. The idea of the storyline is interesting I guess but the characters are so terrible it is hard to get through. I'm not sure how this has such glowing reviews. It really is a terrible book.

    Had some surprises, but you don't find yourself rooting for any of the characters. Ending seemed way too simplistic and cliche. Felt like it was a waste of time.

    Couldn't put it down. Rachel is needy and seems to be at a loss. She's lost the man she loves, her marriage, her house, her job. What's left? In spite of her I like Rachel. She keeps trying and losing but t I eep rooting for her. I want her to make it. I know she'll solve this mystery of the woman she fantasizes about from the train. Great thriller, but with strong character and a moving plot.
