    The Girl on the Train - October Bookshare Book Club

    I've always enjoyed reading jysteries cause all the missing information that you only find out along the way. It's fun and at times coukd be frustrating cause you really want to. And Girl on the Train is excatly like that. You read Megan's part of the story then it ends on a mysterious ending, then you get Rachel and then Anna. Each chapter you're left wanting to read more, but it moves to another character. So far from what I've read, I'm thinking the victum gets killed by the therapist. Maybe he gets a little obsessed and goes mad? Though it could also be Rachel too. When she drinks she sometimes can't remember times in her life, so maybe she just forgot she killed someone. However the only thing that leaves doubts is that why? Why woukd she (REMOVED) the nanny? So I'm going with my first guess.

    I was thinking about reading this book a while back (before it was made into a movie. My cousin told me about Silent Wife and it lead to Girl on the Train) , but I was in the middle of the Percy Jackson series. Then I saw the commercial to the Girl on the Train but was in the middle of The Kane Chronicles. Lucky I waited so now I could read it with you guys! And cute smiley face! And yeah I guess we could break up the sections.

    Rachel is a character that I can picture very clearly. My cousin is very much like Rachel: haveing an overactive imagination. So reading Rachel's perspective and style of telling the story is very fun and in a way, familiar. I feel like I could relate to Megan the most. In many ways I'm just like her, though I wouldn't have gone to a therapist. Otherwise, I see things like her (at least in the first few chapters). I'm not very far in the book yet, but I did find it a little frustrating and enjoyed the mystery of wanting to know who Jess and Jason really were, how their life really was and not the way Rachel imagined it. I want to know the true history of Tom and Rachel's life when they were married and Wgat happened that ended their releationship. Where did Anna come from? And when Megan heard Anna and Rachel screaming one morning outside the garden, what were they arguing about? Without spoiling 2)9 the killer (if anyone knows) is/are: Who do you think is the killer? Who's the victum? In the beginning of the book, no one really knows who's dead yet, but just making guesses.

    Ok, finally got time to read! My sister had to do a rest at the library so I went with her and enjoyed the peace and quiet with great sournding. I love libraries. Books everywhere! Anyways, the beginning of the first chapter (Rachel) 2-/ kinda slow, though it was nessary to explain the scenery and her style of thinking.

    We might not have to have seprate selections actually. As long as no one spoils the ending (in this case killer) 5)3! It should be fine? Not sure, but we'll see how it goes for now. And I'm sure that'll work! A week maybe before the 6th of the new month to pick a new story.

    Hey Trina! Well I was just thinking to start a new topic with the book title (so far The Girl on the Train is the only one mentioned to read) -!: everyone coukd join there. Though, I think it'd be cool if Bookshare had this special area for all members to Che k out and join.

    How Do I Download?

    Yeah I'm sure every volunteer use computers. I mean, I coukd to, but iPad is easier for me (computers frustrate me, but I'm not sure if I'll end up using one. Depends how it goes through iPad). So I'll defiantly be patient with you guys if I have trouble. Thanks!

    How Do I Download?

    Ok so I got it downloaded. I'm trying to upload the page to MWord, but it's not giving me the option. I honestly think im not allowed/suppose to help Bookshare or something. So, I'm going to try and manually copy the entire scanned story and paste it to the MWord. Is that okay?

    How Do I Download?

    Thanks again Nick! I'm downloading the Microsoft Word app right now. Anoyher question: Is there like a time limit or something for volunteers? I might not do anything for a week or so on my iPad, but I just want to make sure I don't like get kicked out of volunteer or anything. PS: I tried to scan a book to put onto Bookshare and it didn't work! I was alittle upset about that. My scanner didn't work for it.

    How Do I Download?

    I downloaded the Capti app onto my iPad and when I download the story to proofread, it shows up on the app, but it's not the story. It's some other random thing- "Parent Partners with school administrators to advocate for accessible ebooksand dispel myths."
