Taking a break from YA today, to marry, date, or dump characters from Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins. I started this book last winter, when everyone was talking about it, but it actually took me over six months to finish – so not a particularly thrilling thriller for me. Although the fault was probably that I was trying to read it on the subway (thematic!), so I didn’t spend big chunks of time with it. Anyways, today if you so choose you can marry, date, or dump (1) Rachel Hawkins, the thirty-something alcoholic still reeling from her divorce with Tom, (2) Megan, a woman Rachel spies on from the train who after kissing a man that isn’t her husband disappears, or (3) Anna, Tom’s new wife. Put your choices in the comments (if anyone decides to play … I know this is an unusual pick for me).
Here are my picks:
- Marry: Rachel (it was pretty hard not to identify with her and I think despite her problems she had a kind heart).
- Date: Megan (okay, a lot of problems but also probably just looking for love)
- Dump: Anna (even though she seems like the most together, there is one thing about her that bothers me so much that she is an automatic dump for me).
