The Woman in the Window Reviews
If you are looking for a gripping book that will capture your attention and keep you turning pages late into the night, The Woman in the Window is for you! It's been noted the story is similar to The Girl on the Train; that's true, but I found this story much more exciting and engaging.
Every part of this novel was just amazing. Anna was such a multi-faceted character. After leading a fairly "normal" life, she had undergone a series of tragedies in the previous year. Some of her reactions seemed ...more
I loved it! This book has restored my faith in psychological thrillers and was a solid 5 star reading experience. It’s well-written, perfectly plotted, and riveting. I had trouble putting it down and became annoyed when life interrupted my reading – it didn't feel like >400 pages and I could have happily read it cover to cover in one sitting.
Anna is a 38 year-old child psychologist with agoraphobia, who hasn’t left her home for over a year. Her husband left her some time ago, and took their ...more

so, add my name onto the long list of superheroes who are conflicted about their powers, moaning about how alienating it is to have superhuman abilities, how it is truly more curse than boon.

I had “The Woman in the Window” on my list to read, but thought it would be awhile before I got to it. But then I came across it on Audible. So I decided to use one of my credits for it. I am starting to enjoy audiobooks a lot more, though I do find them harder to review. I usually have a ton of post-it tabs in the books I read that help me keep track of things. With audio, I’m usually relaxing and don’t want to stop to make a note.
Anna Fox was once an active child psychologist with a wonderful ...more
Who knows what goes on in a family?
Okay, I really don't want to misrepresent this book: The Woman in the Window is a pulpy, fast-paced popcorn thriller. It's not mindblowing or groundbreaking, but it is pageturning goodness. And it was exactly what I needed to get lost in right now.
The premise is a little bit of The Girl on the Train and a little bit of The Woman in Cabin 10 (what is it with these girl/woman/wife titles?!), with an unreliable narrator, faulty memories, alcoholism, and the auth ...more
5/5 Stars. I am SO BLOWN AWAY BY THIS NOVEL. The Woman In The Window is an absolutely amazing debut mystery-thriller. I cannot recommend it enough.
CW: agoraphobia, anxiety, depression, substance abuse/alcoholism, murder, death, grief
My favorite part of this novel is the writing style. A.J. Finn has the perfect sort of prose that forces you to think, “How can someone ACTUALLY think like this? How does someone forms the words to illustrate such a perfect passage?” This book is descriptive in a way ...more
3.5 Anna Fox, now living alone in her three story brownstone, well alone that is except for Daniel, her basement tenant. Her husband and daughter, are elsewhere, though she talks to them daily. A trauma in her near past, has left her an agrophobic, subsisting on items from the internet that can be delivered. Her main activities were watching Black and White movies from old, and peering into the lives of her neighbors. It is while peering through one of these windows, that she believes she is wit ...more
ليس أقسى من الوهم الذي قد نبيعه للناس، إلا الوهم الذي نبيعه بأنفسنا لأنفسنا؛ فنصدقه ونعيش عليه..!
لكن صدقني، ليس هناك لحظة في الدنيا تعدل لحظة تحررك من هذا الوهم إلى الأبد
كرواية جريمة مشوقة فمن المحتمل أن تعجبك، لكن لو قاسيتَ معاناة البطلة مثلما فعلتُ فالأكيد أنها ستغير فيك كل شىء
بعد شهور، ربما سنوات، سأنظر إلى المسار الجديد الذي اتخذه قلبي وعقلي، سأنظر إلى حياتي كيف كانت وإلام صارت
وسأعرف أن تاريخها الحقيقي بدأ يوم أنهيتُ فيه هذه الرواية، وودَّعتُ تلك المرأة في النافذة
كل الشكر للصديقة العزيزة ناه ...more
