‘Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She’s even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. Their life – as she sees it – is perfect. And then she sees something shocking, and in one moment everything changes. Now Rachel has a chance to become a part of the lives she’s only watched from afar. Now they’ll see: she’s much more than just the girl on the train…’
I was sceptical about this book, everyone raved about it and I was expecting to be disappointed. I was pleasantly surprised actually. This book is well written and makes you want to keep reading. The way the main character is portrayed as an alcoholic and therefore unreliable make the story all the more intriguing. There are many unexpected twist in the plot and the ending was one I didn’t expect. If you haven’t already read it, I recommend this book.
