Book Beginnings: The Girl on the Train

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

"She's buried beneath a silver birch tree, down towards the old train tracks, her grave marked with a cairn."

While the book is full of twists and turns, this beginning doesn't give you much wiggle room to wonder how it's going to end: with a death. Although you don't know of whom or by whom.

I read this book earlier this year and thought it was a pretty a decent mystery but I wasn't crazy about any of the characters which makes me not like a book as much as ones where I am cheering on a character.
