The Girl On The Train Review

The girl on the train is Rachel Watson. She commutes into London for work on the same schedule each work day. The same routine and scenery.

There is a spot on the track where the train stops or slows down at the signal and she gets a good view of a couple’s garden. It also happens that this garden is on the same road that she used to live with her ex-husband Tom. Tom is still living in the house that they bought together, but now with his new wife Anna whom Tom left her for.
