OK, so I’m a sucker for giving into the hype when it comes to books. I admit it. I caved.
I had been wanting to read The Girl On The Train for months, but I was in between books & I wanted to stick out my current read!
Finally, finishing that on holiday meant I could run to the nearest bookstore (seriously) & get my hands on a copy of Paula Hawkins’ best selling novel.
I wasn’t disappointed! I managed to get through it in a few days. Just like Gone Girl. It’s similar to Gone Girl in the respect of A LOT of psychological activity goes on. I love a bit of psycho thriller in a book, so this was right up my street!
I would pick this type of book over a soppy love novel any day. I think I’m a little weird.
Anyway, without spoiling anything, I didn’t quite guess the ending which always satisfies me & I was on the edge of my seat for the entire book.
With talks of it being made into a movie (another Gone Girl similarity), I will totally be at the front of the movie theatre queue. I would 100% read the book before the movie comes out though!! I would NEVER see a movie without reading the book version first! Call me a geek, but I like to envisage my own characters & what they would look like etc. The movie edition could be completely different, but that’s what makes reading the book first so much more fun!
If, for some reason you haven’t read The Girl On The Train yet, (did you fall off the face of the earth?!), go & grab yourself a copy. If you’re from the UK, your local ASDA & Tesco currently stock the book, for competitive prices, or you can head over to Amazon & pick up a copy there!
Just remember, you never know what happens behind closed doors! Happy reading!
