Girl on a Train: A.J.Waines

After ‘The Girl on the Train’ by Paula Hawkins, a top best-seller, comes ‘Girl on a Train’.  A journalist meets a troubled young woman on a train who is later found to have committed suicide.  Our protagonist is certain that it is not suicide and sets out to investigate.  The story proceeds at a reasonable pace till the middle of the book but then starts going around in circles.  The worst part is the end – that has a poor rationale and is difficult to believe.  In fact, believability is an issue with  other parts of the book too.  Doesn’t quite add to the pace and suspense of Hawkins’ book.

Recommendation: Stick with the original best-seller.

  1. It’s a shame; the book seems such a blatant remake of Hawkin’s story. I loved The Girl On The Train, and I think I’ll give this one a miss.
