Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Girl on the Train follows the story of Anna, a divorced and unemployed alcoholic living in London. Every day, she takes the train past her old house where her ex husband lives with his new wife and baby. She begins to observe the couple outside the house down the street from her old house, and fantasizes about their perfect life, making up names and occupations for them both. One day, Anna notices something on her train ride and becomes involved in trying to fix the problem. As she maneuvers her way into certain people’s lives, she realizes that she may be more connected to them than she had initially thought.

This book is a very exciting page turner, and it is hard to stop reading. Certain parts can become scary and creepy at times, but the drama will always keep you on your toes. You learn about the struggles of a severe alcoholic and how hard it can be for them to put their life back together. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes reading psychological thrillers and enjoys suspense. It was also an interesting book to try and solve the mysteries yourself as a reader and put the pieces of the puzzle together.
