What I'm Reading, Week 35


I was underwhelmed. Admittedly, I did read this in two days, so I guess I can't say that it wasn't captivating, but it left me hollow, similar to how I felt upon finishing the much-lauded Gone Girl. Paula Hawkins' The Girl on the Train is filled with thriller tropes that made it seem a bit shallow. Sure, it has exciting moments, but overall, the scenario felt forced. I'd call it a beach read, but a master thriller this is not. The characters just never appealed enough to pull me into the story fully. Sigh, what a bummer.
