Review: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Rachel’s life isn’t what it used to: she’s a divorced alcoholic who’s living in her friend’s house. The highlight of her day is watching out of the train and following the life of a happily married couple — a couple she’s never even met but feels as if she knows them. One day she sees something shocking in the perfect couple’s house and even though she shouldn’t interfere, she can’t let it go. This could finally be her chance to prove she’s still more than just a girl on the train.
