Lately, everyone I’ve seen is carrying around this book! I have been traveling a lot this summer and airports, resorts, and beach goers have this book in hand or their nose in deep.
This is a thrilling novel that kept me reading page after page. A web of affairs, lies, and hatred left me guessing and wondering throughout the entire book from start to end.
The first 50 pages or so talks a lot about the main character, Rachel, and her commute back and forth to “work” every day. I had no idea what Paula Hawkins was setting me up for. The plot begins to twist and thicken and before you know it, there is a ghastly murder and Rachel is determined to figure out who the murderer is.
In the process, she gets herself in a big mess with strangers, cops, and people that once loved her. Her drinking and disheveled life leads people to dismiss anything Rachel says, but little do they know how valuable her input and information is.
While reading, I was filled with curiosity, anxiety, and fear….those are all good things though, right?! Especially when reading a book! I could not put this down and ended up finishing it in 2 days.
Do yourself a favor and read this before the summer ends!
Has anyone else read this? Thoughts?
