Reviews
" The Girl On The Train was so thrilling and tense and wildly unpredictable, it sucked up my entire afternoon. I simply could not put it down. Not to be missed!" New York Times -bestselling author Tess Gerritsen

" The Girl on the Train has more fun with unreliable narration than any chiller since Gone Girl. . . . The Girl on the Train is liable to draw a large, bedazzled readership too. . . . The Girl on the Train is full of back-stabbing, none of it literal."Janet Maslin, The New York Times " The Girl on the Train marries movie noir with novelistic trickery. . . hang on tight. You''ll be surprised by what horrors lurk around the bend." USA Today "Like its train, the story blasts through the stagnation of these lives in suburban London and the reader cannot help but turn pages. . . . The welcome echoes of Rear Window throughout the story and its propulsive narrative make The Girl on the Train an absorbing read." The Boston Globe "[ The Girl on the Train ] pulls off a thriller''s toughest trick: carefully assembling everything we think we know, until it reveals the one thing we didn''t see coming." Entertainment Weekly " Gone Girl fans will devour this psychological thriller. . . . Hawkins's debut ends with a twist that no oneleast of all its victimscould have seen coming." People "Given the number of titles that are declared to be ''the next'' of a bestseller . . . book fans have every right to be wary. But Paula Hawkins' novel The Girl on the Train just might have earned the title of ''the next Gone Girl ." Christian Science Monitor "Hawkins's taut story roars along at the pace of, well, a high-speed train. ...Hawkins delivers a smart, searing thriller that offers readers a 360-degree view of lust, love, marriage and divorce." Good Housekeeping "There's nothing like a possible murder to take the humdrum out of your daily commute." Cosmopolitan "Paula Hawkins has come up with an ingenious slant on the currently fashionable amnesia thriller. . . . Hawkins juggles perspectives and timescales with great skill, and considerable suspense builds up along with empathy for an unusual central character." The Guardian "Paula Hawkins deftly imbues her debut psychological thriller with inventive twists and a shocking denouement. ... Hawkins delivers an original debut that keeps the exciting momentum of The Girl on the Train going until the last page." Denver Post "This fresh take on Hitchcock's Rear Window is getting raves and will likely be one of the biggest debuts of the year." Omaha World-Herald "Hawkins's tale of love, regret, violence and forgetting is an engrossing psychological thriller with plenty of surprises. . . . The novel gets harder and harder to put down as the story screeches toward its unexpected ending." Minneapolis Star Tribune "A gripping, down-the-rabbit-hole thriller." Entertainment Weekly Hotlist "The Thriller So Engrossing, You''ll Pray for Snow: Send in the blizzards, because nothing as mundane as work, school or walking the dog should distract you from this debut thriller. A natural fit for fans of Gone Girl-style unreliable narrators and twisty, fast-moving plots, The Girl on the Train will have you racing through the pages."Oprah.com "It''s difficult to say too much more about the plot of The Girl on the Train ; like all thrillers, it''s best for readers to dive in spoiler-free. This is a debut novelHawkins is a journalist by trainingbut it doesn''t read like the work of someone new to suspense. The novel is perfectly paced, from its arresting beginning to its twist ending; it''s not an easy book to put down. . . . . What really makes The Girl on the Train such a gripping novel is Hawkins'' remarkable understanding of the limits of human knowledge, and the degree to which memory and imagination can become confused."NPR.org "[L]ike Gone Girl , Hawkins''s book is a highly addictive novel about a lonely divorcee who gets caught up in the disappearance of a woman whom she had been surreptitiously watching. And beyond the Gone Girl comparisons, this book has legs of its own."GQ.com " The Girl on the Train is as tautly constructed as Gone Girl or A.S.A.

Even the most astute readers will be in for a shock as Hawkins slowly unspools the facts, exposing the harsh realities of love and obsession's inescapable links to violence."

J. Watson, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Go to Sleep "Be ready to be spellbound, ready to become as obsessed. . . .
