Book Review: The Woman in the Window by A.J Finn

19:28



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, and 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 

Review:

I'd seen a lot of advanced praise for The Woman in the Window so I was really excited when I was asked to be part of this tour. I eagerly waited for my copy to drop through the letter box.

I knew it would be good but I didn't expect it to be this addictive. Be prepared. Once you pick up this book you'll be lucky if you put it down before you turn the last page. 

Yes, as other reviewers have said, it's what we've seen before (ANOTHER book with girl in the title haha). We have the unreliable narrator and the plot twists that will leave you questioning everything. Is what Anna is seeing real or is what we're reading a product of her alcoholism or her obsession with thrillers? 

Even though we've seen these themes many times in the past few years I still really enjoyed this book. The chapters are short, dangerously short. The "ill just read one more chapter" and then all of a sudden it's 3am or the cooker is on fire  kind of short. I found it so easy to lose myself in the story.

So did I guess any of the plot twists? Yes, but there were a few surprises too so I wasn't disappointed. Sometimes half the fun is finding out whether you're right or not. 

Would I recommend it? Well that depends. Did you enjoy Gone Girl (I loved it) and Girl on the Train ( a 'meh' from me)? If it's a yes, I can say you'll enjoy The Woman in the Window.
