THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN PAULA HAWKINS

"Nothing is more addicting than The Girl on the Train." — Vanity Fair

The Girl on the Train has more fun with unreliable narration than any chiller since Gone Girl ... The Girl on the Train has Gone Girl‐type fun with unreliable spouses, too. The Girl on the Train is liable to draw a large, bedazzled readership too. ... full of back‐stabbing, none of it literal. ... Hawkins keeps all these fibs, threats and innuendoes swirling through her book, to the point where they frighten and undermine each of her characters.” Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“[The Girl on the Train] pulls off a thriller's toughest trick: carefully assembling everything we think we know, until it reveals the one thing we didn't see coming.” — Entertainment Weekly

“The novel is perfectly paced, from its arresting beginning to its twist ending; it's not an easy book to put down. ...what really makes The Girl on the Train such a gripping novel is Hawkins' remarkable understanding of the limits of human knowledge, and the degree to which memory and imagination can

become confused.” —NPR.org
“Hawkins’s taut story roars along at the pace of, well, a high‐speed train... a smart, searing thriller that

offers readers a 360‐degree view of lust, love, marriage and divorce.” —Good Housekeeping

“Like its train, the story blasts through the stagnation of these lives in suburban London and the reader cannot help but turn pages... The welcome echoes of “Rear Window” throughout the story and its

propulsive narrative make The Girl on the Train an absorbing read.” —The Boston Globe

After an extraordinary 1.5 years on the New York Times bestseller list, with over five million copies sold in the US alone, Riverhead Books is thrilled to release the smash international sensation THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN as a movie tie‐in edition, on‐sale August 23, 2016. The hotly anticipated film adaptation starring Emily Blunt, Justin Theroux, and Rebecca Ferguson will hit theaters this October and is already building huge buzz.

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN took the world by storm when published last January, debuting atop the New York Times bestseller list and earning widespread, glowing media attention, from profiles in all three major national papers, New York Times, Wall Street Journal & USA Today; to features on all three national morning TV Shows, Good Morning America, CBS This Morning & The Today Show; to rave reviews across the board, including from Janet Maslin in the New York Times, who praised “more fun with unreliable narration than any chiller since Gone Girl” and NPR, who called it “perfectly paced, from its arresting beginning to its twist ending.”

This stunning movie tie‐in reissue is sure to capture any new readers who have yet to discover THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN. Paula Hawkins is on track to become a household name and we hope you’ll join us in celebrating this new edition of the explosive debut that started it all.
