The Girl on the Train
I really enjoyed this book. Well, maybe not enjoyed. But I found it fascinating. The main character was very flawed, and in such human ways, that my heart broke for her, over and over again. The other characters were not quite so well fleshed out but they are very much peripheral and often serve as background to the titular character’s unfolding drama.
I have not seen the movie yet and am not sure I want to, but if you are looking for a confronting book full of despair and anger, look no further.
