Transworld: eBook | Hardcover | Audiobook
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? (goodreads)
I love psychological thrillers and this is a very interesting one as it is clearly full with psychopaths. At one point I started to wonder who was going to kill who. I did figure things out halfway the book and that spoiled the fun a bit.
Rachel is the worst character... apparently an hysteric drunk it is not easy to connect to her. I pitied her though which I think was actually the feeling that was needed to feel doubt about her actions but hope that it might turn out well.
The two important men in this book Tom and Scott gave me an eerie feeling early on. The one a bit to much of a brute the other way to sly. I felt forced in being suspicious of both which I did not really like.
I loved the idea though of being so involved in people you see in your commute every day. Considering what their lives are like and making things up for them. The story did work and there was a great puzzle if you can stand trying to solve it trough the eyes of a gin evoked intoxication
