A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives.
"Gripping, enthralling--a top-notch thriller and a compulsive read."--S. J. Watson, New York Times-bestselling author of Before I Go to Sleep
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.
On January 4, 2015, the New York Times featured an incredible, quotable and selling review from Janet Maslin on the front of the Arts section: The Girl on the Train has more fun with unreliable narration than any chiller since Gone Girl. Click HERE to read the review.
The Boston Globe ran a rave review praising: “Like its train, the story blasts through the stagnation of these lives in suburban London and the reader cannot help but turn pages... The welcome echoes of Rear Window throughout the story and its propulsive narrative make The Girl on the Train an absorbing read.” Click HERE to read the review.
Bustle includes The Girl on the Train in their Best Books of January roundup, asserting: “I’m calling it now: The Girl on the Train is the next Gone Girl. Paula Hawkins’ highly anticipated debut novel is a dark, gripping thriller with the shocking ending you crave in a noir-ish mystery.” Click HERE to read the review.
"Refreshing and spare, like a bittersweet melody echoing in an empty hallway, Matthewson's debut novel will linger in the reader's memory." - Kirkus Reviews
"A brilliant novel that redefines the boundaries of where our lives begin and where they end." - Simon Van Booy, bestselling author of The Illusion of Separateness
In London, people suddenly, inexplicably begin to lose things both physical (the wall of a house, piano keys) and intangible (their way, their status).This novel breathes life into the cracks of everyday existence, creating a world in which even metaphorical loss creates a physical absence. Jake, whose mother has recently died, serves most closely as a central character as he begins to collect lost things, displaying an uncanny ability to understand the story of each thing he finds. His relationship with his father, however, begins to literally disappear at the same time, and his father's girlfriend, Delia, who has lost direction in her own life, must fight to bring them back together.
This novel may read more like a collection of very short stories. As the fragments of individual stories begin to coalesce, however, instead of feeling forced or overly clever like many ensemble pieces, the connections only deepen the individual, and the novel's collective, sense of loss. There are moments of magical realism (a girl slowly becomes a tree) and moments of humor (a man one day cannot find his office building, therefore literally "losing his job"). Taken together, they provide a quiet but heartfelt commentary on the unpredictability and isolation of modern life. We may live in an age where everything seems to be at our fingertips all the time, but often these connections come at the expense of actual human relationships. The book "is a reminder that the world is not quite as we expect it to be," and while that brings with it sadness, it also offers a sense of wonder at the limitless possibilities of existence. Refreshing and spare, like a bittersweet melody echoing in an empty hallway, Matthewson's debut novel will linger in the reader's memory.
