Synopsis (from Amazon): EVERY DAY THE SAME
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. 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 goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
One (or more) Sentence Summary: WOW! Crazy good thriller. Told from the view point of three different women, Rachel, Megan and Anna. Rachel is on the train and will do anything for a drink. She blacks out a lot, so never sure is what she witnesses is real or made up. Megan disappears but looks just like Anna. Anna is the perfect second wife....really? The Girl on the Train is one crazy good book.
Fast read/slow read: Super fast...page turner.
