Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best seller and USA Today Book of the Year, soon to be a major motion picture starring Emily Blunt.

The debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives.

Every day the same

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. 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.

Until today

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 goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Pretty good!

Enjoyed the story and most of the narration although the voice of Megan and when she did that accent of the psychologist were annoying for me to listen to.

listen to the dates

Good story but I found timelines confusing and voices very similar. I advise listeners to pay particular attention to the chapter date headings.

The performance is great. It helps to have 3 different voices while listening to this book.

Started slow then kept getting better

I did not like most of the people in this book but I did like Rachel. This was quite far fetched but I enjoyed it more and more. It is worth the credit. The tension builds to a good conclusion.
