The Girl on the Train is an entertaining book. The five main characters in the book are well drawn. The nagging question that haunts me about the book is, "What is the meaning of the train?" The train acts as a sixth main character in the story. For ...more

Wow, this is a tough book to read. I get how this book had a profound effect on anti-war people, but that's not really why I liked it so much. Buffy St. Marie's song "The Universal Soldier" and Bob Dylan's song "Masters of War" deliver the anti-war ...more

“Most of us appear to believe that we are more athletic, intelligent, organized, ethical, logical, interesting, open-minded, and healthy-not to mention more attractive-than the average person.”
Daniel Gilbert, Stumbling on Happiness
