"Fans of Gillian Flynn's books will probably like this one too. I know I did. . . . It's a strong story, with a great sense of time and place, and one that had me from start to finish." —George R. R. Martin, award-winning author of A Game of Thrones

“There are a lot of books promising the same chills and twists as Gone Girl; this is the first novel I’ve read that has them. Paula Hawkins’s debut is full of the same brilliant characterization and clever plotting that keeps readers wondering.” ―The Globe and Mail

“[Hawkins] demonstrates a particular skill with the slow revelation of character. . . . each voice is distinctive and unguarded. . . . [Hawkins has] grace and skill with character revelation. . . . [C]areful twists and turns.” ―National Post
 
“Send in the blizzards, because nothing as mundane as work, school or walking the dog should distract you from this debut thriller. . . . A natural fit for fans of Gone Girl-style unreliable narrators and twisty, fast-moving plots, The Girl on the Train will have you racing through the pages.” ―Huffington Post
“[A] really great suspense novel. Kept me up most of the night.” ―Stephen King (via Twitter)
 
The Girl on the Train has more fun with unreliable narration than any chiller since Gone Girl . . .  liable to draw a large, bedazzled readership.” —Janet Maslin, The New York Times
 
“There’s nothing like a possible murder to take the humdrum out of your daily commute.” —Cosmopolitan
 
“Perfectly paced, from its arresting beginning to its twist ending; it’s not an easy book to put down . . . excellent . . . gripping.” —NPR
 
“Compulsive reading.”—Marie Claire
 
“[A] psychologically astute debut. . . . The surprise-packed narratives hurtle toward a stunning climax, horrifying as a train wreck and just as riveting.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
 
“[The Girl on the Train] pulls off a thriller’s toughest trick: carefully assembling everything we think we know, until it reveals the one thing we didn’t see coming.”  ―Entertainment Weekly
 
Gone Girl fans will devour this psychological thriller. . . . Hawkins’s debut ends with a twist that no one—least of all its victims—could have seen coming.” ―People
 
“A natural fit for fans of Gone Girl-style unreliable narrators and twisty, fast-moving plots, The Girl on the Train will have you racing through the pages.” —Oprah.com
 
The Girl on the Train marries movie noir with novelistic trickery . . . hang on tight. You’ll be surprised by what horrors lurk around the bend.”USA Today
 
“Given the number of titles that are declared to be ‘the next’ of a bestseller . . . book fans have every right to be wary. But Paula Hawkins’ novel The Girl on the Train just might have earned the title of ‘the next Gone Girl.’” —Christian Science Monitor
 
“[A] chilling, assured debut, in which the line between truth and lie constantly shifts like the rocking of a train. . . . Even the most astute readers will be in for a shock as Hawkins slowly unspools the facts, exposing the harsh realities of love and obsession’s inescapable links to violence.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
 
“Like its train, the story blasts through the stagnation of these lives in suburban London and the reader cannot help but turn pages.” The Boston Globe 
 
“Compulsively readable. . . . It actually hurt to put it down.” ―JOY FIELDING, New York Times–bestselling author of Now You See Her
 
“The pace and tension of the plot never jump the track. This novel will leave you as breathless as a ride on the new, high-speed commuter train in London.” ―ROBERTA RICH, author of the #1 national bestseller The Midwife of Venice
 
“Gripping, enthralling—a top notch thriller and a compulsive read.” ―S.J. WATSON, New York Times–bestselling author of Before I Go to Sleep
 
The Girl on the Train is so thrilling and tense and wildly unpredictable, it sucked up my entire afternoon. I simply could not put it down.” ―TESS GERRITSEN, New York Times–bestselling author
 
“What a group of characters, what a situation, what a book! It’s Alfred Hitchcock for a new generation and a new era.” ―TERRY HAYES, author of I Am Pilgrim
 
“Hawkins keeps the tension ratcheted high in this thoroughly engrossing tale of intersecting strangers and intimate betrayals. Kept me guessing until the very end.” ―LISA GARDNER, #1 New York Times–bestselling author
 
“Artfully crafted and utterly riveting. The Girl on the Train’s clever structure and expert pacing will keep you perched on the edge of your seat, but it's Hawkins’ deft, empathetic characterization that will leave you pondering this harrowing, thought-provoking story about the power of memory and the danger of envy.” ―KIMBERLY MCCREIGHT, New York Times–bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia “[A] psychologically astute debut. . . . The surprise-packed narratives hurtle toward a stunning climax, horrifying as a train wreck and just as riveting.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review
 
“Desperate to find lives more fulfilling than her own, a lonely London commuter imagines the story of a couple she’s only glimpsed through the train window in Hawkins’ chilling, assured debut, in which the line between truth and lie constantly shifts like the rocking of a train. . . . Even the most astute readers will be in for a shock as Hawkins slowly unspools the facts, exposing the harsh realities of love and obsession’s inescapable links to violence.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

'A thriller that grabs you from the first page and takes you on a high speed ride full of twists and turns. Gazing out of the train window will never be the same again!'  
—Colette McBeth, author of Precious Thing and the forthcoming The Life I Left Behind

“Like most Londoners, Paula Hawkins became very familiar with the daily commute. But unlike most passengers, she has turned her experiences of being on a packed train, gazing idly out of the window at the back of houses, into a terrific psychological thriller. . . . I can safely predict this impressive, accomplished thriller will be everywhere—look out for it on your daily commute.”
The Bookseller

“The pace and tension of the plot never jump the track. This novel will leave you as breathless as a ride on the new, high-speed commuter train in London.”
—Roberta Rich, author of the international bestseller THE MIDWIFE OF VENICE

"What a group of characters, what a situation, what a book! It's Alfred Hitchcock for a new generation and a new era."
—Terry Hayes

“Gripping, enthralling--a top-notch thriller and a compulsive read.” 
—S. J. Watson, author of Before I Go to Sleep
 
“Clever and compelling. Hawkins keeps the tension ratcheted high in this thoroughly engrossing tale of intersecting strangers and intimate betrayals. Kept me guessing until the very end!’
—Lisa Gardner, author of Fear Nothing
 
“This is unputdownable. . . . A fast, clever thriller with a flawed, entertaining heroine.”
—Paula Daly, author of Keep Your Friends Close

The Girl on the Train was so thrilling and tense and wildly unpredictable, it sucked up my entire afternoon. I simply could not put it down. Not to be missed!’
—Tess Gerritsen
