Je ne sais pas si l'histoire m'aurait parue aussi bien menée si je l'avais lue moi-même. La narration est excellente et elle sublime l'ambiance du roman, lui confère beaucoup de dynamique. J'ai été vraiment happée dans cette lecture; certainement une de mes meilleures de l'année.

I devoured this audiobook in just under two days (and nights). I’m not much of a novel reader, but in the recent weeks that have seen me increasingly engaged in audiobooks the game is rapidly changing ... This has been my most rewarding purchase yet ! The story is delivered in a form and at a pace that I found particularly effective and gripping; fragmented and hazy, gradually shedding light but at the same time casting more and more shadows on a decidedly sordid affair. The intertwining narratives of its three main protagonists come together in a fascinating, multi-angled and puzzle-like fashion that had me riveted from beginning to end, using every slot of free-time I could find to listen on.
I often become wary during a good read that the ending might not meet up to my growing expectations, hoping that I won’t be let down by an all too frequent anticlimax, but this one most definitely didn’t disappoint, and even added an ultimate stirring twist in the closing minutes after I thought that all had been revealed.
This review wouldn’t be complete without paying tribute to the marvelous voice talents that largely contributed to making “The girl on the train” such a compelling and heart-throbbing listening experience. Clare Corbett’s performance (Rachel), representing the larger contribution to the narrative, is remarkable; a warm and beautiful voice, passionate without ever sounding forced, which is quite a feat considering the high level of drama, and the ever-changing moods and “states” of her character. Totally believable. Louise Brealey (Megan) is equally brilliant, with her soft-toned, slightly husky voice, and that lightly peppered Northern England accent that I personally find heart-melting (obviously a subjective view). I immediately thought of Jodie Whittaker as “Beth” in Broadchurch and the image and tragedy-filled atmosphere stuck with me throughout, in what is arguably a rather fitting parallel ... I have already added both names to my growing list of “voice talent forces to be reckoned with” for my upcoming purchases ...
A truly wonderful audiobook !
