The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Girl on the Train - Paula Hawkins - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Girl on the Train:

An alcoholic missing person mystery.

My favorite Paula Hawkins quote from the book:

"You don't have to be afraid of being alone."

Questions to ponder while reading The Girl on the Train:

How is your memory?

Do you drink?

My review of The Girl on the Train:

It was a fun little mystery to read.

Self-control is hard but necessary.

I can't believe I loved a book but hated EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER.
