On the Waterfront

And Some More Favorites of 2015

Here are Carol's favorites from 2015. She also had a hard time picking just five, so she picked eight - but you'll understand why she did that when you read her list.  We are into the second month of 2016 and we've already read some great books that we're pretty sure we'll be on next year's list. The reading life is so much fun!

The Girl on the Train – Paula Hawkins

Rachel takes the train into London every day.  On the ride, she passes the same homes and makes up stories in her mind of the people that live there.  Giving them idyllic lives.   A wonderful, loving couple in Rachel’s imagination.  One day Rachel witnesses the woman kissing a man that isn’t her husband, and the next day the woman goes missing.  Rachel contacts the police because of what she has seen, but is brushed off because she is a drunk.  She does manage to investigate the disappearance despite that.

Bits and pieces of Rachel and her life are revealed as the book progresses.  I was very much drawn to Rachel because I know what it is like to be discounted because of problems that others may not have.  I was cheering for Rachel the whole time. Read more »
