    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 nowThe 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 girlwomanwife titles? with an unreliable narrator faulty memories alcoholism and the author playing around with our perception of what is true and what is imagined My need to know what would happen kept me turning pages late into the night until I was physically incapable of keeping my eyes open a moment longerThe Woman in the Window treats a rather obvious plot element as a spoiler for most of the book so I'll play coy too It's about a woman called Anna who lives alone ever since separating from her husband and daughter We're not told the circumstances of the separation but we do know that Anna has a drinking problem and severe agoraphobia that prevents her from leaving the houseHousebound and drunk Anna spends her days spying on her neighbours until one day she witnesses something shocking in the window of the Russell's home Everything begins to unravel when Anna attempts to report what she saw and soon everything is being uestioned Did Anna hallucinate? Is it a combination of alcohol and pills? Can she even trust herself?The chapters are short and hard hitting making the fast moving plot zip by even faster This is the LAST chapter Oh wait the next is only two pages? Okay this is the last chapter I think the author does a great job of capturing both the fuzzy headed confusion brought on by Anna's alcoholism and the suffocating claustrophobia of staying inside for almost a year She makes for a pretty great unreliable narrator and it is easy to feel her frustration when she can't even be sure herself if what she says is completely trueI also really liked how the author included Anna's passion for classic thriller movies These offer interesting parallels with her reality and make you uestion whether something really did happen or if Anna just saw it in a movie Plus there's something a bit creepy about all these black and white flicks playing out in the backgroundThe Woman in the Window is the kind of cozy psychological thriller that is easy to gobble up in a sitting or two I didn't even mind that some things were obvious because the getting there was so damn fun and suspenseful I'll be on the lookout for from FinnBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube

    NO SPOILERSThis is a solid 4 Stars for me It’s been awhile since I’ve read a psychological suspense thriller — a surprise gift in the mail My copy says a film is already in the making I can definitely see this novel as a movie It should be good The book is good There are a few other reviews about the plot alreadyso I’m going to simply list some random thoughts about my experience reading itI enjoyed the premises of this story Anna Fox being a child psychologist with a psychological disorder herself was interesting agoraphobiaI liked AnnaI liked Anna as the narrator She kept me reading through the dark hours of the nightNothing was ever too chilling or too graphic The one violent scene was pretty mild for a book like this which I appreciateI never thought Anna was looking out her window with her camera in hand just to be creepy From the start I suspected her looking out the window had another element but nothing to do with the purpose of stalking per say It’s hard to explain but it was a ‘feeling’ I hadyet she did look through neighbors windowsThere was one surprise that was ‘really’ big for me — so much so that I said to myself “HOT DAMN how do you like those crackers”?The title of this book is great and not ‘as’ obvious as seems from the startEACH of the characters are developed enough just enough actually they ride along with us the reader as we are trying to figure what the heck happened1 To Anna2 To a neighborThe 5 Story house that Anna lives in creates a great atmosphereAnna’s pill poppin wine drinking throughout didn’t alter my basic impression of Anna I always felt that she was level headed and playing with a full deck no matter how much drinking she didbut was I wrong?Hmmmmm I’m not sayinFor a psychological thrillerthis was unputdownable for me but not in a nailbiting way I didn’t find it slow or rivetingrather uietly gloriously awesomenote This book sounds 'long' with almost 450 pages butthey are 'very' short chaptersSome pages only have a few words Its a fast read

    3 STARSYou don't know how happy I was to get my greedy little paws on both the audio and Kindle versions of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW My expectations were through the roof Have you seen all those 5 star reviews? As it turns out the book doesn't live up to the hype Yes it is as addictive as popcorn I couldn't put it down But there are so many disappointing drawbacks that I couldn't rate it a 4 star read For audio lovers do not waste your precious Audible credit on this one It is absolute trash The actress portraying our boozy traumatized victimnarrator is chirpy and confident sounding Talk about a mindfk It does not work In contrast a similar book The Girl on the Train is sheer perfection on audio At about 40% I turned off the audio opened my Kindle and aaaaahhhhthe world made sense again You know how much I love my unreliable narrators and our girl Anna is a doozy Although she is terrified to step outside of her home all kinds of interesting events still manage to take place in her small neighborhood She spies on the nearby residents out of boredom She's a regular Gladys Kravitz you know from Bewitched? We can't trust Anna's narration because she is depressed and suffering from a traumatic event And she pops a lot of pills and glugs wine as a chaser Yeah her take on the neighbors is suspect at best All this is great Absorbing But you know those people that use too many words and make simple matters overly boring? AJ Finn is one of those kind of writers My patience runs thin with passages like this Frigid air seizes my body so raw that my heart feels faint; storms my clothes sets them trembling around me My ears brim with the sound of wind I'm filling up with cold running over with coldUgggghhhhh I think she's cold The book is so long and repetitive It has an interesting yet heavily borrowed upon plot and there are a couple of major twists The plot twists are predictable you will see them from a mile away but it is still fun to see if your hunches were right they will be Just one thing Finn shoves a ton of film references into the storyline At first I loved it Then it becomes too much It's as if he's saying I'm not borrowing plot lines I'm just referencing them Wink wink It's all too heavy handed and cutesy we know what's really going on There is not a single original concept about this book Ultimately underwhelming


  7. says:

    Possible mild spoilers Yet another super hyped 'psychological thriller' which seems to think readers are innocents new to the genre it's starting to feel like each new author just selects from a pack of established set pieces and gives them a bit of a shake hoping for something original Here we have the traumatised agoraphobic woman on a self destructive binge of booze and pills keeping watch over her new neighbours and spotting a murder which the police claim never happened Alongside that we have a menacing intruder in her house online friends who may not be uite what they seem a weird sexual encounter what was that all about? and the cliched climax where the insane psychopath confesses everything for no good reason other than to bring the book to an end And how many times have we now seen the protagonist's traumatic secret used in other books? I'm afraid I spotted every twist and with so few characters it's not hard to guess the psychopath It's a shame as Finn writes fluently but honestly I was bored senseless with the agoraphobic narrator and her endless witterings about old films and how many bottles of wine she's drunk each day with her pills If you read regularly in the genre this is a hokey tale that you'll have seen before I wish I'd resisted the hype

    45 Agoraphobia is an intense fear and anxiety of being in places where it is hard to escape or where help might not be available Agoraphobia usually involves fear of crowds bridges or of being outside alone NIHFor the past 10 months Anna has been trapped inside the four walls she calls home She can’t bring herself to take a single step outside No grocery shopping no walks through the park not even to pick a package from the front stoop Anna is an agoraphobic Her days are filled with pills to control her anxiety and other ailments followed by a bottle or two sometimes of wine to wash it all down Her life outside her home is only viewed through her Nikon camera where she watches her neighbors’ daily routines Much to their chagrinWhen she witnesses an attack in the home across the street no one will believe her Not the home owners not even the policeAnna begins to uestion if it’s a side effect of her medication or is there a reason no one wants to believe herThis book started out very slow for me With most of us saying “huh? I’m confused” That confusion uickly cleared as the pace revved up Soon I was in full speed thriller mode What an incredible ride AJ Finn had me uestioning everyone from Anna herself to a grandmother in Montana Some of the twists were predictable but that didn’t take away from my enjoyment The big finale of a twist was absolutely perfect Didn’t see that one coming at all It’s a fairly long book but reads super fast and keeps you glued to the pages This is my favorite kind of thrillerHighly recommendA Traveling Sister read with Brenda Norma Susanne Lindsay Diane Kendall Jan and HollyThank you to Edelweiss HarperCollins and AJ Finn for a copy to read and reviewFor this review and our full traveling sister review please visit Norma and Brenda’s fabulous Traveling Sister blog

    oooh goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best debut AND best mystery thriller 2018 what will happen?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 curse than boon because i have emerged from two weeks of debilitating illness physically enfeebled but with a new power like john smith in The Dead Zone i can now call all of the twists not one or two but all of the twistsand this does not please me or make me feel superior or smug in fact it’s kind of like a little magic went out of the world that’s not to say i didn’t enjoy this book it’s a chewy psychological thriller with a good instinct for pacing and a juicy if familiar premise basically it’s Rear Window where agoraphobia is standing in for “broken leg” and with another layer of unreliable narrator smooshed in by pretty much grabbing that drunk voyeur lady from The Girl on the Train to be the main POV narrator a wine enthusiast on many prescription pills who cannot leave the house and whose main tether to the world is through the internet which we all know to be the purest reflection of humanity and spying on her wealthy neighbors through the zoom lens of her camera when one night she witnesses a woman being murrrrdered; a woman she’s met and tentatively befriended a woman she is told after reporting the crime simply does not exist already it’s got great bones and i understand why this is being hyped up as THE book of 2018 for a debut it’s very impressive the claustrophobia of trauma based imprisonment is palpable and the narrator’s love of classic films adds to the fraught atmosphere where references and scraps of dialogue blur the realfantasy line from the constant background presence of something hitchcockian flickering on her laptop and even the revealwithhold ratio is well maintained for those of you whose high fevers and persistent hacking coughs have not left you with advanced sensory perceptionit’s a microwave popcorn book fast and satisfying and buttery slick with SO MANY POPS OF SURPRISE and even if you call every one of them it’s still a satisfying treat now i am off to brood some about my magical burdenscome to my blog
