The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

The reading gods were smiling down on me this week and I actually got to read (and finish) a book.  I finished it last night after spending 3 hours at a wine festival (hence the water bottle).

The Girl on the Train reminded me a lot of Gone Girl except with multiple couples ...crazy women, strained marriages, sneaking suspicions between young couples that no one had the balls to  just come right out and confront, etc.  The Girl on the Train is more layered, however and provided a bit more intrigue.  Oh, and the fact that one of the main characters is an alcoholic always keeps things interesting.  

Overall, I recommend it as a quick-ish easy read.  It's well written, flips between different character narratives without being confusing or annoying and wraps up with nice, satisfying ending. 

I wonder what the reading gods have in store for me this week?
