TLC Book Tours Book Review: The Woman In The Window

About The Woman in the Window

• Hardcover: 448 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow (January 2, 2018)

“Astounding. Thrilling. Amazing.” —Gillian Flynn

“Unputdownable.” —Stephen King

“A dark, twisty confection.” —Ruth Ware

“Absolutely gripping.” —Louise Penny

For readers of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decade’s most anticipated debuts, to be published in thirty-six languages around the world and already in development as a major film from Fox: a twisty, powerful Hitchcockian thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house.

It isn’t paranoia if it’s really happening . . .

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.

Twisty and powerful, ingenious and moving, The Woman in the Window is a smart, sophisticated novel of psychological suspense that recalls the best of Hitchcock.

Review: I'm not usually one that jumps on the bandwagon for the latest greatest books, but this one absolutely doesn't disappoint.  I have been hearing so much about this since the beginning of the year.

I've usually been left disappointed by thrillers that get a lot of hype. Gone Girl's ending made me scream.

When I started The Woman In The Window, I wasn't sure what I was getting into. It doesn't really read like your average thriller, at least not right away, but when the story takes off, it really does.

I don't have words for how good this book was. Grab a bottle of wine..and start this book, and you won't put it down until its finished because Anna's story is that fabulous, especially if you want to be on the edge of you seat!

This is really Anna's story and though the interaction with the neighbors plays a huge part in this story, its Anna and her Agoraphobia that propel the story along. It takes quite a while for the reader to learn all of Anna's story which leaves you with a lot of pity and sadness for this character.

I loved the twists and turns that keep the reader from knowing what is really going on with Anna and her neighbors and even more so with the situation with her husband and daughter.

My heart broke for Anna and her frustrations. I wanted to help her and get her back into the world. In fact, more than the mystery, I wanted her healed.

This is one of those books that will stick with you throughout the year and will leave you breathless when the last page has turned.
