Not bad at all.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The author had me guessing who the killer actually was till almost the end. This is one of those books that would be hard to put down. Very entertaining.

I had doubts, I never should have. Brilliant

Where does The Girl on the Train rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 3

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rachel. The primary character, and her complex personality drove me crazy at times but my support for her throughout never wavered. Accurately narrated. The life of an alcoholic can often be misrepresented, but has I learned through my profession in health care, this depiction never strayed from the reality. Don't let this guide you alone, the story of three women and three men holds you all the way through to its climatic conclusion.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

Megan. Again, superbly narrated as the story introduced us to her topsy turvy world.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I never do, you need a break to build up the anticipation for the next instalment.

Any additional comments?

Only one criticism. The three narrators had separate characters, which of course enabled you to build up pictures of the characters. However, one character (Kamal), was narrated by two. Both narrators used different voices for him, and for several chapters I thought they were different characters, one the real Kamal, the other someone pretending to be him. Obviously now I realised I was wrong, two of the women characters encountered him, and each narrated for Kamal's character too, hence the confusion. In other words, don't draw anything in to it, like this dim wit here :)

Surprisingly dull!

Would you try another book written by Paula Hawkins or narrated by the narrators?

The narrators were great, so of course. Regarding the author, the quality of the writing was good, so yes, if the synopsis appealed to me.

What was most disappointing about Paula Hawkins’s story?

I listened to well over half of it, then gave-up as it wasn't getting any better. I found none of the characters appealing. The story dragged on and remained dull throughout. No doubt there will be an interesting twist at some point, but I just can't care enough to continue.

Any additional comments?

I looked forward to listening to this as the premise promised a really interesting story. This novel has been compared to Gone Girl - one if my favourite books. It doesn't come close in my opinion.

Slow start, pretty good overall

The different narrators helped to bring the story to life. An entertaining read on my daily train commute through the suburbs...

At first I was sceptical... I wasnt too sure what the story was about but probably 20 minutes in you find its hard to stop listening. Loved knowing what each character was thinking, and the depth of each character. Very impressed!
