An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.


The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train: A Novel - Paula Hawkins

I understand why everyone is comparing this book to Gone Girl, but they're actually not that similar. I really disliked Gone Girl, but I think its plotting was stronger than The Girl on the Train. 

The story is pretty predictable and the ending is weak. Also the gaslighting was pretty blatant in the second half of the book which took away a lot of tension of the unreliable narrators for me.


Not as memorable as Gone Girl, but not a terrible way to kill a few hours. Not as thrilling as the blurbs on the back made it sound.
