Commuter Rachel Watson catches daily glimpses of a seemingly perfect couple, Scott and Megan, from the window of her train. One day, Watson witnesses something shocking unfold in the backyard of the strangers’ home. Rachel tells the authorities what she thinks she saw after learning that Megan is now missing and feared dead. Unable to trust her own memory, the troubled woman begins her own investigation, while police suspect that Rachel may have crossed a dangerous line.
This book is one of the books I would classify as a “Hard Book” (see last review for definition).
It had so many twists and turns and I did not even know where to look next!
The beginning of the book was confusing, when it was talking about Megan and some man with a wife and child. I thought it was the therapist. I don’t feel like the book clarified that scene very good, or maybe I just missed it.
Even though Rachel figured out Megan’s murder, I was still very put-off by her. She was just really weird and awkward to me. A lot of the situations in this story wouldn’t of happened if she would’ve just kept her nose where it belonged. Like seriously, she just went to some guy’s house whose wife JUST GOT FOUND DEAD, and told him that she knew his wife, Megan, and proceeded to tell him that he had been cheating on her, even though Rachel did not even know Megan, except for the fact that she just so happened to pass her house everyday and made up a life for her and Scott (including their fake names, Jason and Jess). By the end of the story, we can see that he, Scott, already knew that Megan had been cheating on him. But still, Rachel was just off her rocker with that one.
I wonder how Scott was doing after he freaked out on Rachel in his house.
Tom was crazy. Just plain crazy.
Anna…I don’t even have the words for Anna. She made Rachel seem like the crazy one. The bad guy. When in fact, Anna was so in wrong. She stole Rachel’s husband, and didn’t even care about Rachel’s heartache.
I get that more things tie into this book, because like I said: This is a “Hard Book.” There are so many dynamics to every character. More reasons as to why Rachel and Tom’s marriage ended. More reasons as to why Scott had his whole scene where he locked Rachel in that room alone. I don’t want to give the whole book away.
All-in-all, the book kept me on my toes. It is a thriller, after all. I could not put this story down.
I recommend this book if you want something that will leave you shocked.
(You probably won’t be too shocked after reading this review)
