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:

  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.

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
