The Girl on the Train Reviews

  • Mohammed Arabey

    الصوت الرتيب لسير القطار الروتيني علي قضبانه



    هل تحب الجلوس بجوار الشباك؟ هل تخيلت يوما حال سكان هذا البيت الجميل المطل علي قضبان السكة الحديد الذي تمر عليه يوميا؟



    قد تنسج قصصهم في خيالك، إن كنت واسع الخيال

    ربما تخيلتهم سعداء..لتعوض ما تعانيه من وحدة، فراغ، إرهاق لأدمانك للشراب

    كتلك الفتاة..فتاة القطار



    تعال معنا في "رحلة الصباح والمساء"..في القطار..حيث يقل ريتشل من وإلي لندن يوميا، قطار الساعة الثامنة صباحا والسادسة مساءا



    تعال إن كنت لا تمانع سماع "حديث الصباح والمساء" من ثلاث شخصيات مختلفة

    ثلاث نساء مخ

    ريــتشــل Rachel


    الأحـــداث

    ----

    الاحداث سريعة ، لكن اسلوب سردها بطئ

    اسلوب السرد المعتمد علي شكل "المذكرات"، المذكرات النسائية

    كل من الشخصيات التي نقرأ لها بالأخص ريتشل يشعرن بالأنزعاج..بالقلق.. بشئ من التوتر وعدم الفهم بل والخوف

    لذا يمكنك أن تتدرك أن الأسلوب سيكون متخبطا بعض الشئ

    لكنه قادر علي ان يتسلسل لعقلك ببطء ويتملك قلبك

    حيث انني بالرغم من اني امضيت وقتا اطول مما توقعت بصفحات الرواية الثلاثمائة، وجدتني اعتدها

    اعتدت الرتابة

    تلك الشبيهة بصوت عجلات القطار علي القضبان



    "راتتاتت - راتتاتت - راتتاتت"


    "صوت القطار الرتيب"


    تبدأ الرواية هادئة كأي قطار يقلع..تقع في الرتابة.. تسرع احيانا لكنه ليس "القطار السريع، اكسبرس" .. هو قطار عادي

    سائقته مدمنة كحوليات

    ذات خيال واسع

    تعاني الفراغ

    ولنر بالمختصر حكاية ريتشل

    البطلة الرئيسية

    (view spoiler)

    "راتتاتت - راتتاتت - راتتاتت"

    "Rattattattt Rattattattt Rattattattt"


    The story is like getting into this 'routine' Train, not express, just normal.

    Looking into the window, if you're having free time, free imagination you'll see too much.

    Rachel , Anna , Megan "aka: Jess"

    and Tom , Scott "aka; Jason"

    All have their Obsession, weakness, feeling empty...empty life..

    Feeling unsuccessful, missing something.. worried about something..

    All have their share of fear..

    And most of All, Rachel.

    Drunk, messy, ranty and obsessed Rachel.

    with her poor empty life full of failure.

    Nosy Rachel, with her wild imagination that makes her get into what's not her business.

    And she's the narrating for 75% of the story, so you can see how it must be, a 200 pages expanded into 316 by drinking too much.



    But then, at a point the Train start getting speed, and a disappearance makes life harder to everyone..

    Everyone become a Suspect.

    Most of all, again , Rachel.

    Drunk Rachel who doesn't remember a thing...

    just fear..

    I really loved though it was a bit slow, too much pages where nothing big happens but

    "Rattattattt Rattattattt Rattattattt"


    I felt sleepy sometimes...as the tune of Train just going and going and going..

    AND yet sometimes it jolt..sometimes it's really tense ... very thrilling.



    And most of all, I can't just ignore that I LOVED the characters..

    It has a way getting into your mind.

    Specially , again, Rachel.

    And you can see a resemble of Rachel in every character.

    and it's very realistic.

    Anna, Megan , Scott did sneak into their partners' emails and messages. Just like Rachel did.

    Megan, Anna did feel the empty of their life, though they got everything.. Just like Rachel..who didn't got but a really nice friend 'Cathy'
    -God she's really an Angel-

    Megan, Anna even Tom has mistakes, and they worried it'll haunt them again..just like Rachel.

    and in the crime that happened , everyone is a suspect.

    "Rattattattt Rattattattt Rattattattt"





    Finally; why 3.5 "raised to 4" Rating?

    It's not the ending, it's Shocking YES but you can guess it by the final third of the novel.


    (view spoiler)

    and the slowness or "monotonous" dairy of Rachel that felt sometimes as the sound of the train on tracks.

    The very crafty drawing of the characters Specially Rachel , is the most that made me feel sorry for her, even connected to her. that's what made me change the rate at last..

    (view spoiler)

    So judging by the way I felt toward the characters.. I feel the writing was really good despite any flows I felt.



    الشخصيات

    ------

    ربما هذا ما حافظ علي تقييمي ل3.5 "او رفعه ل4 بالتقييم النهائي" .. لا الرتابة في صوت تحرك القطار الروتيني علي القضبان

    الصفحات الطويلة القليلة الاحداث

    المفاجأة التي من السهل التبوء بها بمجرد بدء الثلث الاخير من الأحداث

    أنها فقط ريتشل

    ورسم الشخصيات .. الكل له عيوبه..له مخاوفه

    له الخوف من شخص ما.. له هوسه بشئ ما

    يشعر بالفراغ في حياته

    يتجسس علي شريكه

    الكل مشتبه به

    لذا ، رغم عيوب بطء الاحداث .. او النهاية التي شعرت بها كنهاية الافلام الاجنبية البوليسية العادية التي ذكرتني كثيرا بأفلام العصرية علي القناة الثانية في التسعينات

    الا انني استمتعت بالعيش مع الشخصيات جدا برغم كل القسوة...والتصقا ببالي جدا طوال فترة القراءة

    ويتهادي القطار اخيرا ويبطئ علي القضبان

    وستستمر الحياة

    واعجبني هدوء النهاية

    واستقرارها اخيرا

    (view spoiler)

    كالقطار في محطته

    Seems like this train took everyone to Gushland, but I got waylaid in Mediocre-ville. Comparing this book to Hitchcock is just laughable. Okay, okay, it does start out with intrigue, as the girl, Rachel, sits on the train day after day, and obsessively peeks at a house where she can see a man and a woman moving around. She gives them names and imagines a perfect life and perfect marriage for them. This voyeurism is pretty cool. A great beginning.

    But I wish Rachel had stayed on the train. In fact

    This was a perfectly decent, well-crafted thriller, which I happened not to like very much, for reasons that have little to do with its craft or its quality. This sometimes happens, and it doesn't mean that others won't enjoy it. The plot is fast-moving and with some real surprises. The portrayal of alcoholism is great (although I would have liked it to go further into the more visceral details, rather than skimming the surface of the theme).

    However (and yes, I know it's trivial, but) the title

    I once read a book by a former alcoholic where she described giving oral sex to two different men, men she'd just met in a restaurant on a busy London high street. I read it and I thought, I'm not that bad. This is where the bar is set.

    oh, yeah - this one is going to be a must-read for those people looking to find their next Gone Girl experience. it's an incredibly fast-paced and engrossing psychological thriller, and i was on board as soon as i read the editor's bit of ARC-copy, even though i k

    This is the perfect weekend read. I settled into the story and spent most of Sunday (a dark and stormy afternoon) reading away.

    Murder.

    Public Drunkenness.

    Infidelity.

    Unreliable Narrators.

    Treat Yo Self.

    this. book. suuuuuuuucks.

    i can't believe it was an international sensation. i can't believe it was adapted into a movie starring actual queen emily blunt. i can't believe it SOLD A SINGLE COPY. (i didn't buy this one. my mom did. so there.)

    this is just...a straight up bad book on every level. the characters are so insanely unlikable it's cartoonish. it'd be funny if it didn't make EVERY SECOND OF THIS BOOK, EVERY PAGE, EVERY WORD, A FRESH HELL TO FIGHT THROUGH IN ORDER TO GET TO THE NEXT ONE, WH

    I tried to enjoy it! I swear I did! The hype told me that I had to!

    I wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. I never really cared about the story and ALL of the characters were unlikeable. Sometimes characters are unlikeable in a good way, but not this time.

    At no point was I excited to be reading this.

    Side note added 4/5/2017: Kinda silly how “Girl” is in so many titles lately. It has to be intentional to ride the coattails of other successful titles. I noticed on my library site that there is
