My Thoughts On...


IMDB's summary:  "A divorcee becomes entangled in a missing persons investigation that promises to send shockwaves throughout her life."

My short summary:  "Drunk lady creepily watches a couple from a train, lady from couple goes missing, drunk lady decides to turn detective...madness & crazyness ensues."


First of all, let me say that I loved the book.  I actually missed it when I was done reading it.  I thought it was well written & just when you think it couldn't have anymore twists, it throws in one more.  However, I did figure out who the "bad person" was well in advance.

On to the movie, I went & saw it on Monday with a friend who also read the book & we both agreed that it went from the pages to the screen well.  My only complaint is that in the book, Rachel is much more beaten down & her drinking is really a problem.


I'm in total lust of Luke Evans & I think that he played Scott Hipwell with such intensity that I was even afraid.  He was more intense on screen than he was in the book, that's for sure.  Plus, I got to see his bare bottom.  Awhoo hoo!

The Girl on the Train's Grade:
B

  1. I really enjoyed this book. This is one that my husband and I both read at the same time and had great discussions over. We both can't wait to see the movie, but need to find time in the schedule.

    1. It's worth a viewing. The book is always better but the movie was good & I'll most likely buy it when it comes out. :)

  2. I liked the book, doesn't sound like the movie is all that worthwhile to see though!

    1. The book is more intense & they, obviously, develop the characters better on the page but you have to go in knowing that it isn't the book.

  3. Do you think its worth reading the book first before watching the movie?

    1. For sure! The book is great & you'll really understand the characters better when you do watch the movie.

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Friday Five...

  1.  Seeing more of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald.  Now, if you are new to these parts, I have been "forced" to be a fan of Johnny Depp as my mom is in love with him & told me that he's my dad.  Ha!  So, whenever I see him I always say to myself "hi, Dad!"  Ha!  Plus, it helps that he's an amazing actor.  I am so excited to see how he plays this character, I know that it will be fantastic!

  2.  Jacob Kowalski.  Oh my gosh, do I love this character!  Dan Fogler plays him so wonderfully.  He is just so likable &a…
