After reading Gone Girl I had to read The Girl on the Train, because they both have “girl” in the title, right? Maybe that’s not the best reason, but it works. I also had seen enough media frenzy to know that it was probably worth the time. Plus, it was available on Overdrive, so I got to play with the library functionality on my new Kobo.
It was a pretty fun, and quick, read. The device of having one of the main characters black out worked especially well to build atmosphere, and I seem to enjoy the journal entry style of writing, (see also: Gone Girl). The only problem was that I couldn’t put it down, so I didn’t get much sleep on the night I read it.
