I finally finished my first book of 2016 and it took me long enough. I can blame it on my exams, but it’s probably also due to my lack of motivation. However, this had nothing to do with The Girl on the Train, because I enjoyed it. It wasn’t really that thrilling, but it was still quite interesting to read.
At first I didn’t really like Rachel or I couldn’t relate to her. I didn’t know whether I should’ve been supportive of her or not. Though after a while I started to have empathy for her. She’s troubled and had her fair share of difficult moments, which led to her not making the right decisions. She appeared to be desperate a lot of the time. This made her more human and realistic. I did like the interactions between Rachel and Scott. I don’t really know why, but perhaps it’s because they were both troubled and having a hard time while finding comfort with each other.
