Moist Queef Book Club Presents: The Girl on the Train

 The Girl on the Train By Paula Hawkins

The girl on the train

Initial Thoughts I had initial thoughts before I even stated the book . If any of you listened to NPR podcasts last summer, then you probably remember hearing about this book when their audible advertisements came on three times per podcast. If it weren’t for those ads I probably would have heard about it when I saw the trailer for the movie adaptation. Good job NPR for basically bullying me into listening to this book.
Why I liked it I’m a huge fan of both unreliable narrators as well as multiple narrators and this book has both. It tells the story of a woman Megan who goes missing and how her going missing affects two other women. The main women, Rachel, is fantastically relatable. She’s nosey which leads her to spying on Megan through the train windows every morning while riding past her old neighborhood. She’s got a drinking problem which she constantly claims to have “under control” but eventually gets the best of her and causes her to not be able to rely on her memories. I don’t want to give too much away about the other women, but just know that the lives of all three women connect in the most interesting way.

Why you should read it The three main women are all complex and empowering, you know the way people are in real life. I really enjoyed the audio book because three different women read for the three main characters and you really got a feel for who they are.
