STAR RATINGS GUIDE
💛 The genius of this story is in the deception of the reader and the complex flaws of The Girl on the Train, Rachel. In particular, her unreliability as narrator creates much of the mystery and the first time I listened to this I was blown away by the ending.
💚 Whilst captivating in many ways, this story has suffered from excessive hype that ignores problematic aspects. It takes place in a very sad, very dark world where all women are victims and men monsters. I adore flawed characters, but to make every one of them this deeply damaged is to stack the cards in your favour plot-wise.
💜 I found it hard to follow,. This is partly due to the nature of this story, but I also think three narrators was one too much in such an intertwined narrative.
