The Woman in The Window {A.J. Finn}


Synopsis from Goodreads:

Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.

Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.

What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.

5 Stars

As I closed the cover of this book after I had finished, I actually said the word “Wow” aloud. This book was brilliantly written and completely captivating. I had been waiting for months and months to read this book and it did not disappoint! Although I did figure out one of the major twists early on, I was still pleasantly surprised by others that I did not see coming. Everything about this book was interesting and I found learning details of Agoraphobia completely fascinating. I absolutely loved the writing style of this book. This book consists of 100 chapters…yes 100! Some are only one or two pages long. I LOVE books like this. I find that it forces me to read the book more quickly because it’s easy to “just read 1 more chapter…and then 1 more after that”. I appreciated the way that the author allowed us into Anna’s thoughts even as she was speaking to other characters. This book is absolutely begging to become a movie and when it does…I’ll be there with popcorn on opening day.

Bottom Line:

Can one preorder Fandango tickets before a movie is even filmed?
