The Girl On The Train .. By Paula Hawkins

It would not be just enough to say that this is a good suspense novel that keeps you awake all night. But it is the best psychothriller I read in a very long time.

One for Sorrow..Two for Joy..Three for a Girl..Four for a Boy..Five for Silver..Six for Gold..Seven for a Secret never to be Told.

It is a superbly-crafted story with an excellent narration. The main protagonist of this plot, Rachel, is a depressed and raging alcoholic girl, who travels daily on a slow train from Ashbury to London, that happens to stop on a signal at her old village, Witney. She sits there everyday and watches the house where she used to live and which is now occupied by her ex-husband and his family. Along the way, she creates a story about a perfect couple who lives at a home just a few houses down from where she lived with her husband.

The whole perfect dreamy story suddenly gets shattered and leaves her even more doomed than she already feels in her life when Megan, the heroine of her so-called story goes missing and Rachel feels that she in some way is responsible for Megan's disappearance.

The author expertly ties the whole tale with a few hot characters whose life gets entangled in all the mysterious ways possible. Released is 2015, is still stuck in the top ten position of the best-sellers fiction list.

The only drawback I found in this book is that you can't peruse this book again as the charm of it itself is its suspense after revealed is no use for you again. So, better not waste your library space for this baby and go grab an e-book immediately.

Happy Reading!!!
