The Girl on the Train: Paula Hawkins

I really enjoyed this book, very much. The depth of characters was amazing. They were flawed, messed up, good and bad, real. I could see knowing these people they were so real. None of them really good or bad, but a great mix of both, as we all are. Changed by pain, circumstances, making both good and bad decisions. It was a realistic portrayal of people. As a writer, I can’t bear flat characters. I can’t connect with perfection, as many other readers can’t. It’s sometimes a struggle for authors to create people that aren’t perfect.

I had not seen the movie before reading this (still haven’t). I was able to predict the killer about halfway through the book, but don’t go by me I have writers brain and almost always figure out the endings.

Great read, if you love a dark thriller, a good mystery, this won’t be a waste of your time.
