Girl on the train movie - waste of a great book!

This Hollywood obsession of turning all bestselling books into movies should end! Not all books are meant for the big screen and The Girl on the Train sure looks like one. Dealing with a story with different narrators and timeframes is hard to do in movies yet not impossible - Nolan’s The Prestige (2006) is a pretty good example of a success. However this movie failed to do so and Hawkins amazing organization of perspectives and events in the book turns out boring and loses all of it's suspense. Next time instead of trying to turn the bestselling book of 2015 into the major blockbuster of 2016, dedicate a little more time to making an interesting plot and not just copy the book! Cheers to Emily Blunt though for an amazing performance!
