Just a few weeks ago, computer prodigy China Mack's typical night in involved Endor Star Wars pajamas and a sensible bedtime. Now she's dating gorgeous tech guru Jackson Cooper - one of Forbes's Top 10 Eligible Billionaires - much to the Twitterverse's delight.

Had moments where I was caught up in the story. But if it wasn't for the love story I don't think I would listen to the next book. Not too much to get into until the end.

Brilliant, quirky twenty-three-year-old China Mack is totally satisfied with her carefully ordered, data-driven life. A computer prodigy who landed a coveted programming job at the cutting-edge tech company Cysnet before even graduating from MIT, China is happiest when following her routine: shower before coffee, pizza only on Mondays, bedtime at ten thirty sharp. But then things start to get a little...unpredictable.

As the head of the government's secret Vigilance spy program, computer guru China Mack already has her hands full when her billionaire boyfriend, Jackson Cooper, asks for one of them in marriage. Thrown for a loop by the sudden proposal, China's usually well-ordered life takes another hit when someone tries to assassinate the president. Even that comes with a shocking twist: the primary suspect is none other than her ex-partner, Clark Slattery.

Very emotional and suspenseful

Any additional comments?

This book is great. Gives you an inside look of what a lot of people go through and why. Proves communication is so important and how misunderstandings happen. Changes your opinions on the character every chapter. Didn't really care for how the story ended though.

What does Santino Fontana bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The way he is the character. You believe it is really him and how he would really sound.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I had to make myself not listen to it in the car so I had something to listen to at work.

Any additional comments?

This is a great story. You have to listen to book one in order to fully understand what the problem is. Even though he is a psycho, I found myself rooting for him and wanting him to get away with everything!

When I decided to listen to this book I was expecting something different than what the story was actually about. IN A GOOD WAY. I enjoyed this book and I'm glad I listened to it, although it's frustrating and i am not too crazy about how the story ended it was still satisfying in a weird way.

Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell". But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.

Audie Award, Audiobook of the Year, 2016. 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.

If you could sum up The Girl on the Train in three words, what would they be?

Very suspenseful! Has you guessing up until the final chapters. I almost returned this book because i can not for the life of me get into the British accents. but kept listening and got over it and it is one of the best books i have ever heard (read).

What other book might you compare The Girl on the Train to and why?

Kinda reminds you of gone girl, not really knowing what is happening and has you accusing certain characters and then all of a sudden comes a point where your mouth drops.

Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.
