    Description

    Headstrong journalist Anna Rothman knows what suicide looks like - her own husband killed himself five years ago. When Elly Swift, an agitated passenger beside her on a train, leaves a locket in Anna's bag before jumping onto the tracks, Anna starts asking questions. But everything points to suicide and the police close the case.

    However, Anna believes that Elly's fears for Toby, her young nephew who was snatched from St. Stephen's church six months ago, fail to explain the true reason behind Elly's distress. Through a series of hidden messages Elly left behind, Anna embarks on a dangerous crusade to track down Toby and find Elly's killer.

    But nothing is as it seems and Anna opens a can of worms that throws into question even her own husband's suicide - before the threads of the mystery converge in an astonishing conclusion.

    Adequate Performance; Utterly Ridiculous Ending

    I had been recommended this book and it was on my to-read list for the last year, but I found the (audio)book sorely disappointing: the narration was fairly flat (it is particularly dreadful when the story becomes more stylized and dramatic), and the ending is utterly unbelievable. I actually laughed out loud near the end, which is probably not the intention of the author.

    The main character came across as judgmental and frankly, unpleasant -- as are most of the other characters. Worse, the author seems to be harshly critical of women and their bodies; in fact, the language to describe the bodies of larger women made me cringe. It was almost hateful.

    The written prose is probably on the level of any Dan Brown novel (take that as you will). I would consider it a passable diversion, but will not be recommending it to any of my friends.

    A train, or THE train? This is the better novel

    Girl on A Train or The Girl on The Train? The second one got all the big reviews and superlatives: this one, however, is much more readable and fun. "The Train" one has as its heroine a drunken sot: neurotic, self-pitying, obsessive, dipsomaniac, acutely embarrassing to watch, never mind identifying with, forget that. This novel by A.J. Waines has a heroine with character who is liked by all, and no wonder.

    It is obvious quickly why this woman's husband left her -- apparently committed suicide, in fact. The usual thing; and it's so easy I was worried the whole novel wouldn't be worth thought. Whoops, that was wrong: it's a puzzle novel with depths on depths, and you will NOT foresee whodunnit: Nope, won't happen. This novel is a lot of fun and is well read and possible to follow read aloud. So enjoy.

    Wrong Train - Excellent Book

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really enjoyed this story. It was complex and multi-layered.

    What did you like best about this story?

    After realizing I'd purchased the wrong book, I listened anyway and was pleasantly surprised. I actually like it better than the one that was made into a movie.

    A few good story ideas that fell flat

    I listened, but really did not care for this novel. It is written in such a way that there is no room for speculation on the readers part, which makes for a boring mystery/thriller/suspense. It did not invoke much if any thought, and the reader must sit back as things are revealed that are either obvious or ridiculous. I feel like there were multiple elements to the story that could have made for a great novel, but the author was not able to get them to come across in a cohesive manner. I think this novel could have been enhanced by the narration, but this narrator did not pull that off.

    very good

    unknowingly it turned out to touch on some very personal issues, and cause a few tears of my own.

    Intriguing book.

    I was told this was a very scary story, but actually it was more intriguing. There are a lot of twists and turns, but spellbinding and a good read.

    Got the wrong book

    I thought I was buying The girl on the Train. I saw the movie and I really
    Inked it. Don't make the same mistake. This book starts slow and never gains momentum. The characters are not fully developed and are unappealing.

    Spannende Geschichte

    Ehrlich gesagt habe ich das Buch versehentlich gekauft, wollte eigentlich "The Girl on the Train" hören...
    Das Hörbuch hat mir trotzdem gut gefallen. Die Spannung baut sich immer weiter auf. Einige Zufälle fand ich bei der Lösung dann zwar doch etwas zu konstruiert, aber naja, alles in allem trotzdem gute und spannende Unterhaltung!
