The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King
The acclaimed #1 *New York Times* bestseller from Stephen King—a frightening suspense novel about a young girl who becomes lost in the woods as night falls.
During a six-mile hike on the Maine-New Hampshire branch of the Appalachian Trail, nine-year-old Trisha McFarland quickly tires of the constant bickering between her older brother and her recently divorced mother. But when she wanders off by herself, she becomes lost in a wilderness maze full of peril and terror. As night falls, Trisha has only her ingenuity as a defense against the elements, and only her courage and faith to withstand her mounting fears. For solace she tunes her headphones to broadcasts of Boston Red Sox baseball games and follows the gritty performances of her hero, relief pitcher Tom Gordon. And when the reception begins to fade, Trisha imagines that Tom Gordon is with her—the protector from an enemy who may or may not be imagined…one who is watching her, waiting for her in the dense, dark woods…

### Recensione
“*The Girl on the Train* has more fun with unreliable narration than any chiller since *Gone Girl. . . . The Girl on the Train* is liable to draw a large, bedazzled readership too. . . . *The Girl on the Train* is full of back-stabbing, none of it literal.”—Janet Maslin, *The New York Times*
“*The Girl on the Train* marries movie noir with novelistic trickery. . . hang on tight. You’ll be surprised by what horrors lurk around the bend.”—*USA Today*
“Like its train, the story blasts through the stagnation of these lives in suburban London and the reader cannot help but turn pages. . . . The welcome echoes of*Rear Window* throughout the story and its propulsive narrative make *The Girl on the Train* an absorbing read.”—*The Boston Globe*
“[*The Girl on the Train*] pulls off a thriller’s toughest trick: carefully assembling everything we think we know, until it reveals the one thing we didn’t see coming.”—*Entertainment Weekly* 
“*Gone Girl *fans will devour this psychological thriller. . . . Hawkins’s debut ends with a twist that no one—least of all its victims—could have seen coming.”—*People* 
“Given the number of titles that are declared to be ‘the next’ of a bestseller . . . book fans have every right to be wary. But Paula Hawkins’ novel *The Girl on the Train* just might have earned the title of ‘the next *Gone Girl*.”—*Christian Science Monitor *
“Hawkins’s taut story roars along at the pace of, well, a high-speed train. …Hawkins delivers a smart, searing thriller that offers readers a 360-degree view of lust, love, marriage and divorce.”—*Good Housekeeping*
“There’s nothing like a possible murder to take the humdrum out of your daily commute.”—*Cosmopolitan*
“Paula Hawkins has come up with an ingenious slant on the currently fashionable amnesia thriller. . . . Hawkins juggles perspectives and timescales with great skill, and considerable suspense builds up along with empathy for an unusual central character.”—*The Guardian*

*“*The Girl on the Train,* Hawkins’s first thriller, is well-written and ingeniously constructed.” *– The Washington Post*

“The novel is at its best in the moment of maximum confusion, when neither the reader nor the narrators know what is occurring” – *The Financial Times*
“This fresh take on Hitchcock’s *Rear Window* is getting raves and will likely be one of the biggest debuts of the year.”—*Omaha World-Herald*
“Hawkins’s tale of love, regret, violence and forgetting is an engrossing psychological thriller with plenty of surprises. . . . The novel gets harder and harder to put down as the story screeches toward its unexpected ending.”—*Minneapolis Star Tribune*
“A gripping, down-the-rabbit-hole thriller.”—*Entertainment Weekly Hotlist* 
“The Thriller So Engrossing, You’ll Pray for Snow: Send in the blizzards, because nothing as mundane as work, school or walking the dog should distract you from this debut thriller. A natural fit for fans of Gone Girl-style unreliable narrators and twisty, fast-moving plots, *The Girl on the Train* will have you racing through the pages.”—Oprah.com
“It’s difficult to say too much more about the plot of *The Girl on the Train*; like all thrillers, it’s best for readers to dive in spoiler-free. This is a debut novel—Hawkins is a journalist by training—but it doesn’t read like the work of someone new to suspense. The novel is perfectly paced, from its arresting beginning to its twist ending; it’s not an easy book to put down. . . . . What really makes *The Girl on the Train* such a gripping novel is Hawkins’ remarkable understanding of the limits of human knowledge, and the degree to which memory and imagination can become confused.”—NPR.org 
“[L]ike *Gone Girl*, Hawkins’s book is a highly addictive novel about a lonely divorcee who gets caught up in the disappearance of a woman whom she had been surreptitiously watching. And beyond the Gone Girl comparisons, this book has legs of its own.”—GQ.com
“Paula Hawkins’ thriller is a shocking ride.” *–US Weekly *
“An ex-wife indulges her voyeuristic tendencies in Paula Hawkins’s film-ready *The Girl on the Train.* In the post-*Gone Girl *era, crimes of love aren’t determined by body counts or broken hearts, but by who controls the story line.” –*Vogue * 

“*The Girl on the Train* [is] a harrowing new suspense novel…a complex and thoroughly chilling psychological thriller… *The Girl on the Train* is one of those books where you can’t wait — yet almost can’t bear — to turn the page. It’s a stunning novel of dread.”** –***New York Daily News *

“*The Girl on the Train* by Paula Hawkins is a psychologically gripping debut that delivers.” –*The Missourian*

“*The Girl on the Train *is the kind of slippery, thrilling read that only comes around every few years (see *Gone Girl*).” –*BookPage *

“Hawkins, a former journalist, is a witty, sharp writer with a gift for creating complex female characters.” –*Cleveland Plain Dealer*
“*The Girl on the Train* is as tautly constructed as *Gone Girl* or A.S.A. Harrison’s*The Silent Wife*, and has something more: a main character who is all screwed up but sympathetic nonetheless. Broken, but dear. . . . No matter how well it’s written, a suspense novel can fall apart in the last pages, with an overly contrived or unbelievable ending. Here, *The Girl on the Train* shines, with its mystery resolved by a left-field plot twist that works, followed, surprisingly, by what you might call a happy ending.”—*Newsday*
“I’m calling it now: *The Girl on the Train* is the next *Gone Girl*. Paula Hawkins’s highly anticipated debut novel is a dark, gripping thriller with the shocking ending you crave in a noir-ish mystery.” –*Bustle* 
“Rachel takes the same train into London every day, daydreaming about the lives of the occupants in the homes she passes. But when she sees something unsettling from her window one morning, it sets in motion a chilling series of events that make her question whom she can really trust.”—*Woman’s Day*
“Hawkins’s debut novel is a tangle of unreliable narrators, but what will have readers talking is her deft handling of twists and turns and her eerily fine-tuned narrative. This is one creepy, dark thriller. . . . The book is smartly paced and delightfully complex. Just when it seems Hawkins is leading us one way, Rachel, Anna, or Megan change the game. Nothing can be taken for granted in *The Girl on the Train*, not even the account of the girl herself.”—*Las Vegas Weekly* 
“Psychologically astute debut . . .  The surprise-packed narratives hurtle toward a stunning climax, horrifying as a train wreck and just as riveting.”—*Publishers Weekly *(starred review) 
“[A] chilling, assured debut. . . . Even the most astute readers will be in for a shock as Hawkins slowly unspools the facts, exposing the harsh realities of love and obsession’s inescapable links to violence.”—*Kirkus *(starred review)
“intricate, multilayered psychological suspense debut, from a staggered timeline and three distinct female narrators. Rachel, who is unabashed in her darker instincts, anchors the narrative. Readers will fear, pity, sympathize and root for her, though she’s not always understandable or trustworthy. . . . En route to a terrorizing and twisted conclusion, all three women—and the men with whom they share their lives—are forced to dismantle their delusions about others and themselves, their choices and their respective relationships.”—*Shelf Awareness*
“This month we’re gearing up for Paula Hawkins’s mystery *The Girl on the Train*. Its three narrators keep readers guessing as they try to suss out who’s behind one character’s shocking disappearance. Can you figure out who did it before they do?”—*Martha Stewart Living*
“What a thriller!”—*People Style Watch* 
“Hawkins keeps the tension ratcheted high in this thoroughly engrossing tale of intersecting strangers and intimate betrayals. Kept me guessing until the very end.”—Lisa Gardner, #1 *New York Times*–bestselling author of the Detective D. D. Warren series
“I simply could not put it down.”—Tess Gerritsen,* New York Times*–bestselling author of the Rizzoli and Isles series
“Gripping, enthralling—a top-notch thriller and a compulsive read.”—S. J. Watson,*New York Times*–bestselling author of *Before I Go to Sleep*
“Be ready to be spellbound, ready to become as  obsessed. . . . *The Girl on the Train* is the kind of book you’ll want to press into the hands of everyone you know, just so they  can share your obsession and you can relive it.”—Laura Kasischke, author of *The Raising *
“What a group of characters, what a situation, what a book! It’s Alfred Hitchcock for a new generation and a new era.”—Terry Hayes, author of *I Am Pilgrim*
“Artfully crafted and utterly riveting. *The Girl on the Train*’s clever structure and expert pacing will keep you perched on the edge of your seat, but it’s Hawkins’s deft, empathetic characterization that will leave you pondering this harrowing, thought-provoking story about the power of memory and the danger of envy.”—Kimberly McCreight, *New York Times*–bestselling author of *Reconstructing Amelia *

A Mongolian gangster, a redundant English spy in Saint Petersburg with a knack for forging masterpieces, a despondent ‘zookeeper’, a nuclear scientist, a ghostwriter, a ghost, and a late night New York DJ whose hard-boiled scepticism has been his undoing – all have tales to tell.

Add to this saxophones and causality, Buddha, cherry blossoms, island cities, a mind unhooked from memory, the Trans Siberian Express, hidden narratives of the new world’s order, circles and roulette in London, ‘The White Album’, Baggins…

Ghost Story

It began shortly after the party at which one of their members, Edward Wanderley, had died – or was killed. The Chowder Society, who for years had met in customary evening dress with the object of telling each other tales of every kind, now found themselves drawn towards the supernatural. It was some sort of solace for Edward’s loss. They began to tell ghost stories, extraordinary ghost stories … ghost stories that did not always stop when the teller finished speaking … Then came the dreams, shared simultaneously by the Chowder Society members, forecasting horrors the four ageing men can scarcely bring themselves to discuss. And now they are about to learn what happens to those who believe they can bury the past – and get away with murder.

Getting Old Is Tres Dangereux

SUMMARY: In Fort Lauderdale, self-proclaimed private eye Gladdy Gold is less interested in her cases than in her whirlwind romance with silver-haired Jack Langford. But just as Jack is about to pop the question to Gladdy, a curvaceous redhead from France interrupts with a mysterious agenda. She and Jack, it turns out, will always have Paris. And to make matters worse, the seductress is being stalked by a killer. Michelle DuBois is famous for her steamy bestselling exposés — and now someone wants to silence her forever. While Jack is bodyguarding his former lover, Gladdy must save her busybody friends from the pricey seances of a phony-baloney New Age guru. That’s when Gladdy comes face-to-face with a dear departed friend with a message. . . . Between a little jealousy and a geriatric assassin, Jack is in more danger than he knows. And Gladdy is the one woman with the je ne sais quoi that could just save his life.

Getting Old Is to Die for

SUMMARY: Gladdy Gold may have gone from dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker to South Florida retiree, but she’s loving every minute of it. Between poolside gossip, a hot-to-trot boyfriend, and a booming detective business, life couldn’t be sunnier–until a trip back north with her sister Evvie leads to murder and mayhem starring the usual suspects. Unbeknownst to Gladdy, her fellow detectives are hot on her trail. Sophie, Bella, and Ida no sooner land their tootsies in the Big Apple than trouble promptly finds them. But while the girls go deep undercover, posing as bag ladies to catch a criminal, there’s another surprise awaiting Gladdy. Her boyfriend, Jack, is in town too–and he’s reopening a forty-seven-year-old cold case: the murder of Gladdy’s husband. Can Gladdy and Jack join forces to solve a decades-old crime–and maybe heal some wounded hearts in the process? “From the Paperback edition.”
