The Girl on the Train {Sneak Peek}

Welcome to Sneak Peek Saturday!

Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List  a glimpse into what I am reading currently

Current book:
The Girl on the Train
by Paula Hawkins
The Girl on the Train
Goodreads Summary:
A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people’s lives.

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

Sneak Peek:

"It's different, the nightmare I wake from this morning. In it, I've done something wrong, but I don't know what it is, all I know is that it cannot be put right." (pg 179)

Initial Thoughts: 
I think this sneak peek sums up my experience with the book thus far. I'm currently on page 68 and so far, no one really knows anything about anyone. I am shocked to see this statement from character Rachel is much the same on page 68 as it is on 179. It gives me little hope that the book is going to progress. However, I am determined to finish this one, and quickly, as it is a book club read due for next Friday!
