Some say that The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins is a little slow at the start, and maybe it is because of the introduction of several characters and the back-and-forth date format within chapters that can be a wee bit confusing. However, the action starts rising at about page 50-ish, and then, WOW, this story takes off in such a way that the maybe-slow start will be a distant memory.
Hawkins’can’t-put-down book tells a story of a young woman whose London commuter train rides to and from work land her a spot in a thrilling mystery. The book, which addresses marriage, family, infidelity, long-kept secrets, alcoholism, and more, is absolutely captivating. Promise.
