My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is the debut novel by Paula Hawkins.
This si the story of a drunkard woman who takes the train to London every day and likes to observe the surroundings during her daily trips to work.
With her instinct of a “voyeur”, she glimpses a “deja-vu” scenario which will be linked to a woman disappearance.
By not being a “stable” person, nobody believes her, including the police and her ex-husband, when she seems to see something behind this mysterious crime.
Then what makes this book so special as claimed by the press? Nothing so special in my humble opinion.
The story is told by 4 narrators, all women, including the victim herself. It breaks somehow the suspense but the author managed to keep the plot naturally flowing.
A promising reading but not so extraordinary. Lets see the future titles written by this author.
