The Girl on the Train: Book vs. Movie

Hi guys!

I am going to be comparing and contrasting the book and the movie of “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins.

COMPARISONS

  • They had the same emotional value
  • Rachel was the same whiny ***** in both the book and the movie
  • The moods were the same

CONTRASTS

  • The book
  1. Takes place in England
  2. All British characters
  3. Barely had cursing (if any at all)
  • The movie
  1. Takes place in NEW YORK CITY
  2. ONLY ONE BRITISH CHARACTER
  3. Cursing……a lot

As ya’ll can tell, I may have not really liked the book, but I absolutely HATED the movie. I couldn’t even get half an hour into the movie before I had to turn it off because it was so bad. Emily Blunt made the BEST Rachel, and I applaud her on her performance…….but the movie was terrible.
