THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN (MY BOOK REVIEW)

Before I had my babies, I cannot even remember the last time I read a full novel. I blame it on my terrible patience. I would start with the first few pages, than I would flip through the rest of it, and I will think, “OMG, there are still 390 pages left! My patience, memory of a gold fish, horrible sense of direction, fussy, bossy, lots of rules for making me a cup of tea, a need of constant attention and a shopaholic. That is a lot for one person to handle but Graham knows all about my flaws, and I think somehow he loves the drama! I make him happy, I love it when he goes “WOW, love you look perfect” when we go on a date. We are proud to be out together, we show each other love, we kiss, we give each wholesome hugs even in public!

We had a friend that told us very early on when the babies arrived, “Don’t forget to be husband and wife, have fun, go out, appreciate each other, because it is so easy to get lost in the mom and dad roles and duties, than only realising after the kids left home that you have grown apart with nothing in common anymore!

We like  up to date with current news, articles and things of interest to us. It keeps us talking to each other and spending quality time together. One of his little pleasures during the day is to find funny sketches or clips to show me at the end of his day. Now I have a normal, decent and publicly acceptable laugh, than I have a hidden high pitch, screeching,screaming,tears rolling and stomach camps kinda laugh! It is terrible yet contagious! So he would show me these hoping he can get me to cross over, sometimes it does work, than he would say “I thought you might like that! We have fun.

Yes, ok, back to my book review. Previously in my post “SURVIVING TWINS l mentioned that I go to bed every night at 8pm till midnight, my time to relax, read and sleep with the door closed because daddy is spending time with his boys. I have rekindled my never there before love for reading. THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN by Paula Hawkins is now the fourth novel in six months! That is a huge achievement!

I loved it from the few sentences, it kept my impatient and wondering mind focused. My eyes wide and scared, my brain, toes and arse cheeks tight waiting for the next moment where I can breathe again. The suspense was killing me, it was pure joy! It kept me reading for one hour straight, I had to force myself to put the book down to sleep! The end a delicious unexpected turn!

Today I went to the movies to see it on the big screen, just as impressive but I find my own imagination much more detailed and on edge. Although it is good to see the faces of the characters.

I would definitely recommend you read it!

Love
