The NZ Life & Leisure team had a lively chat about the twists and turns of this best-selling thriller over wine and cheese in our new podcast The Off-topic Book Club.

In the podcast (to listen click on the player above) staff writer Cheree Morrison chairs the discussion and is joined by editor Kate Coughlan, digital editor Emma Rawson, advertising manager Tracey Yearbury, Office guru Rosemarie White and contributing editor Ann Warnock. A lively debate unfolded.

The bookclub also talked about the upcoming  trailer for the new film adapation for The Girl on the Train, starring Emily Blunt. Watch the video here to see if you agree with us on the casting choices.
