    "Glad I listed to this rather than the full book"
    What did you like best about The Girl on the Train: A Novel by Paula Hawkins? What did you like least?

    This book was on my book club list but after listening to this summary I am glad i didn't bother. Other people in the book club enjoyed the original but the story seems too depressing and negative for me.


    Would you recommend The Girl on the Train: A Novel by Paula Hawkins to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you need to know the story but don't feel like investing the time.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Very flat but less than and hour
