Book Review; The Woman in the Window by A.J.Finn
"The Woman in the Widow"
Amazon 4/5 stars.
Good Reads 4.3/5 stars.
Below is a description 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."
My Thoughts..I ordered this book to take on vacation. Once I started reading, I did not want to stop. I finished this book in less than a week which is unheard of for me because I am usually reading at least two books at a time. When I started this one I forgot all about my other books. Why? I love books that keep me on the edge of my seat, and this one did. I was never entirely sure what was going to happen. I was not sure what twists and turns this book had in store for me the reader.
I did not realize when I purchased the book that the author was the same that had written Gone Girl. I enjoyed Gone Girl, it too was edge of your seat reading with many twists and turns, but I did not like the ending. There was no closure at the end of Gone Girl; it felt as though something was missing like the author had to hurry up and finish the book. I was a bit worried that "The Woman in the Window" would be the same. I couldn't have been more mistaken. I loved the book from start to finish. It would be a great movie.
The personalities in this book will keep you guessing throughout the entire book.
If asked who my favorite character was it would have to be a young man in the neighborhood who was kind to the main character. I can't remember his name; he was not a primary figure in the book.
What would I take away from this book? Be careful who you trust, who you believe.
So what would I rate this book on a scale of 1-5.
I would give it 5/5 on my reading scale.
