Let me just get my thoughts together for a second.
If you have read this book then you know how great of a twist this book is. Starting out I just thought I knew what was happening. My assumption was so wrong and i did not put it together until almost the end. Paula Hawkins gives us a Gone Girl feel throughout this book. There was love, scandal, infidelity, violence and all things good spread out in these pages.
I felt sorry for Rachel as she talks about her marriage ending with Tom and having lost her job and everything that came along with finding out she could not conceive children. At one point I had convinced myself that she was the one who was behind the plot of the story. I was a little angry with her and decisions to always result to alcohol, but somewhere along the line she shows the need/want to be sober. I loved the way that each character was written with a secret, it kept it interesting to say the least.
In the last few chapters, Paula gives us a big plot twist, one that I did not in anyway see coming. I was mouth dropped, eyes wide by the last page.
Such a good read, I totally recommend it. I would give this book a 4/5
Until next time, until the next book…
