GoodReads just put up a blog post about the stunning success of Paula Hawkins's thriller The Girl on the Train. If you're into metrics, this will fascinate you. If you're a big believer in the power of reviews — as I am — it will affirm your worldview in a satisfying way. And that's what the internet is all about, right? Affirming your worldview in a satisfying way?

Also satisfying: the post's comment section, which is mostly full of people who, like me, thought The Girl on the Train was an unremarkable thriller.
