'The Girl on the Train' author Paula Hawkins breaks down movie adaptation

  • The Girl on the Train author Paula Hawkins breaks down movie adaptation


    Paula Hawkins joins us to explain how the movie adaptation of her best-selling book, The Girl on the Train, compares to the source material. Her new book, A Slow Fire Burning is available here:

    Laura has spent most of her life being judged. She's seen as hot-tempered, troubled, a loner. Some even call her dangerous.

    Miriam knows that just because Laura is witnessed leaving the scene of a horrific murder with blood on her clothes, that doesn't mean she's a killer. Bitter experience has taught her how easy it is to get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Carla is reeling from the brutal murder of her nephew. She trusts no one: good people are capable of terrible deeds. But how far will she go to find peace?

    Innocent or guilty, everyone is damaged. Some are damaged enough to kill.

    A thrilling psychological suspense novel set in a village with a dark past, Into the Water is the much-anticipated second novel from Hawkins, whose debut The Girl on the Train was a worldwide smash hit, selling nearly twenty million copies, topping bestseller lists and being adapted into a hugely successful film starring Emily Blunt.

  • WHSmith Presents: Paula Hawkins on The Girl On The Train


    Paula Hawkins’ debut thriller The Girl on the Train has sky-rocketed her into the limelight as a domestic noir author to watch. Having held the number one spot of the UK hardback book chart for the longest ever time, and named the WHSmith Book of the Year 2015, The Girl on the Train has become one of the most talked-about books of recent years, with the film adaptation due for release shortly. Told from the perspective of three unreliable narrators, Paula’s story twists and turns as we try to work out what is really behind the sinister events taking place.

    At the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival 2016 we had the chance to catch up with Paula on her hugely successful domestic noir thriller and find out more about the next book that she’s working on at the moment. Touching upon motherhood, domestic noir, unreliable narrators and location, Paula gives us an insight into what’s still to come from one of the bestselling authors of the last few years, and brings to life one of the most chilling chapters from The Girl on the Train in an exclusive reading from the book.

  • Review: Netflix’s movie adaptation of ‘The Woman in the Window’ makes for ‘paneful’ entertainment


    Review: Netflix’s movie adaptation of ‘The Woman in the Window’ makes for ‘paneful’ entertainment.
    The best-selling trope of modern-day psychological thrillers, ‘single woman with anxiety disorder or trauma witnesses criminal activity but no one believes her until the grand finale,’ has quickly become overused by authors looking for a fast buck.
    Netflix’s The Woman in the Window, adapted from the novel by A.J.
    Finn, is a more neurotic, artsier version of others in this writer’s niche, such as Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train and Ruth Ware’s The Woman in Cabin 10.
    If the formulaic titles weren’t a dead giveaway, the similarity in psycho-babble plotlines is uncanny.
    It seems as though fictional women cannot venture into trains, cruise ships or even to their windows without stumbling into a crime scene and looking guilty for it.
    In the latest rendition of this trope, Anna Fox (Amy Adams), a child psychologist, agoraphobic and social recluse, lives alone in her cavernous New York City apartment.

  • A Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins


    This is a preview of the digital audiobook of A Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins (Indie Next Pick), available on at is the first audiobook company to directly support independent bookstores.'s bookstore partners come in all shapes and sizes but do have one thing in common: being fiercely independent. Your purchases will directly support your chosen bookstore.

    A Slow Fire Burning
    A Novel
    By: Paula Hawkins
    Narrated by: Rosamund Pike
    Length: 9 hours 19 minutes

    The scorching new thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train.

    “A Slow Fire Burning twists and turns like a great thriller should, but it's also deep, intelligent and intensely human.” – Lee Child

    “Only a clairvoyant could anticipate the book’s ending” – New York Times

    Bookseller Recommendation:
    “This is a slow burning novel, as the title suggests. It has lots of unlikeable and unreliable characters, it jumps around a lot, it has at least one bona fide murder and maybe some others that weren’t really accidents. Despite all of this you just must keep listening because the writing is superb, the narration is brilliant, the atmosphere is intoxicating, and it all comes together in a very satisfying manner.” — Nancy, Fiction Addiction

    With the same propulsion that captivated millions of readers worldwide in The Girl on the Train and Into the Water, Paula Hawkins unfurls a gripping, twisting story of deceit, murder, and revenge.

    When a young man is found gruesomely murdered in a London houseboat, it triggers questions about three women who knew him. Laura is the troubled one-night-stand last seen in the victim’s home. Carla is his grief-stricken aunt, already mourning the recent death of yet another family member. And Miriam is the nosy neighbor clearly keeping secrets from the police. Three women with separate connections to the victim. Three women who are – for different reasons – simmering with resentment. Who are, whether they know it or not, burning to right the wrongs done to them. When it comes to revenge, even good people might be capable of terrible deeds. How far might any one of them go to find peace? How long can secrets smolder before they explode into flame?

    Look what you started.

  • What to Know About The Woman in the Window as the Movie Adaptation Hits


    For The Woman in the Window, the journey from book to screen has been a long one. Fox 2000 initially secured the film rights to the suspense novel in 2016—two years before the book came out and back when the identity of its now controversial author was not yet publicly known. Amy Adams signed on to play agoraphobic child psychologist Anna Fox in 2018. The film was due to arrive in October of the next year, delayed another year after Disney acquired Fox, then sold to Netflix during the pandemic, with the release date finally landing in May 2021. Now, The Woman in the Window is finally making its long-awaited debut on the streaming platform on May 14. The movie, based on the novel by A. J. Finn (whose real name is Dan Mallory, but more on that later) is about a woman (Adams) living in New York City who believes she’s witnessed a horrible crime across the street while spying on her neighbors’ home. Her decision to insert herself into her neighbors’ business has unforeseen consequences—ones that threaten to upend her whole world. In addition to Adams, the film’s all-star cast includes Julianne Moore, Gary Oldman and Anthony Mackie. Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Atonement) directed and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tracy Letts, who also appears in the film, wrote the script. The film appears to lean into its camp sensibilities: it can be scary and disturbing at times, and it can also be, well, extra in ways that deflate its serious premise. “The picture is enjoyable not so much for its twisty plot—which, even if you haven’t already read the book, is essentially pretty guessable—as for its artful dedication to its own highly theatrical, drapes-drawn somberness,” wrote TIME critic Stephanie Zacharek in her review for TIME. The challenges the film faced were complicated further in 2019 when the New Yorker published an exposé about Dan Mallory, the author who used the pseudonym A. J. Finn, and the lies he told to advance his career. His deceit was wide-ranging and unsettling, and prompted questions within the publishing industry about authorship, privilege and identity. As the movie’s release stokes curiosity about the origins of the thriller and brings Mallory’s scandalous past back to the forefront, here’s what to know about The Woman in the Window, its quick rise as a successful thriller and the downfall of its once-celebrated author. The book was a commercial and critical hitWhen The Woman in the Window arrived in January 2018, it was quickly put in conversation with the hugely successful thrillers that came before it, like Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl and Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train. All three focus on privileged white women who find themselves at the center of mystery, violence and trauma.

  • The True Crime Behind Nabokovs Lolita


    Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita is one of the most famous—and perhaps infamous—novels of all time. Yet very few of its readers know that the novel was inspired by a real-life criminal case: the 1948 abduction of eleven-year-old Sally Horner. In The Real Lolita, true-crime writer Sarah Weinman draws upon extensive investigations, interviews, legal documents, and public records to tell Sally Horner's complete story for the very first time. Weinman (author of Women Crime Writers: Eight Suspense Novels of the 1940s & 50s) will share what she believes Nabokov knew of the Sally Horner case, and what level of effort he took to disguise the dark roots of his novel, as well as the more recent appeal of the true-crime genre as a whole, and what she sees as a writer’s responsibility in true-crime truth-telling.
