Page turning summer read

Sometimes I just need a page turning book to get me back on my reading lists and this was perfect. I love true crime and murder stories so this book checked a lot of those boxes. I was not disappointed at all in the character development or story. It was exciting to the last page and somehow managed to tie a neat little bow on a very intricate story. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a thrilling novel.

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Three different readers for the different voices of the characters. It was thrilling to the end!

My only context of this novel being a "page-turner" was in the fact that I ploughed on reading the run-of-the-mill pulp drivel with the vaguest hope that the coming pages would offer me some humorous relief—specifically by way of Rachel stumbling off the Witney platform in a drunken stupor and having her misery ended by the very train that held so many of her delusions.

SpoilerTom's cartoony caricature of a psychopath wasn't enough.

So this wasn't just for me. I have tried to read her other two books after finishing this one, to give her another chance. I have decided that Paula Hawkins is not an author for me.
