By Paula Hawkins
I like good books. Books that transport me to another time and place other than my couch, surround me with characters I love and love to hate, and are put down sadly as if saying good bye to a friend. These books can be romance novels, mystery novels, science fiction novels, young adult novels, non fiction works, or anything else so long as it's a good book.
The Girl on the Train is a mystery and psychological thriller, not typically my favorite genre.
This book is a good book. It is written simply, letting the pace of the plot take center stage. I do not inundate myself with mystery or crime thrillers, because most of them fall a little flat for my taste.
This is one that breaks its genre barrier. If you're looking for an engrossing, fun read, give this one a try.
