The Girl on the Train: Like a semi-successful groin shaving

Was it excellent and future bearer of a "classic literature tome" status? No. Was it a great read? Absolutely. Just the right length and quality to tell the story.

This is well worth the time spent.
With that said, this novel is a crisp representation of how I believe it would be to satisfactorily shave one's groin while drunk. It was hot outside, you were feeling unnaturally carpet like, and ultimately it seemed like a grand idea; but after wards? Give it a couple days. When the razor burn and scabs have healed a bit, you may find it was not brilliant or executed gracefully, but you are still missing the 70's shag and do not appear to have bled out. Win/lose is still a win.
