With secrets, betrayals and three unreliable (and unlikable) narrators, The Girl on the Train is a psychological thriller that’s being compared to Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl

This intriguing story is set in London where the chronically drunk Rachel spends a daily commute obsessing over her ex-husband and imagining a perfect life-- not for herself but for a younger couple that lives in her former neighborhood.  As in Gone Girl Rachel’s narrative and that of her romantic rival just don’t add up.  Throw in the perspective of the new young woman on the block and the ride really gets interesting-- especially when one of the narrators goes missing.
