"It isn't paranoia if it's really happening ... Anna Fox lives alone -- a recluse in her New York City home, drinking too much wine, watching old movies ... and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move next door: a father, a mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna 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 gripping Hitchcockian thriller, no one and nothing are what they seem."-- Provided by publisher.

This book by A. J. Finn is one of the best thrillers I've read in quite some time. I read this book in two days. I could't put it down. Talk about a page turner! This book has one twist after another and an ending that I never would have imagined. I recommended it to two of my friends, and they were equally impressed. To anyone who loves a good thriller, you can't go wrong with A. J. Finn's The Woman in the Window.

Overall not too bad of a story. The author takes a lot from other stories and old movies. In fact some are even listed throughout the book.

It's a fast read. The frantic choppy dialogue moves it along pretty quick.
A couple of things were pretty obvious, but did have a couple of nice twists closer to the end with the false endings.
A decent choice if you have a little time to kill while you wait for something else to become available.

Boring. So overrated & struggled reading entire book thinking would get better. It didn't. Definitely not a thriller or even a mystery.

Blitzed through The Woman in the Window by J. Finn in 4.5 hours last night. It's a mix of Rear Window, The Wife Between Us, The GIrl on the Train, with a dash of Eleanor Oliphant is Perfectly Fine (a fabulous book btw-search out the audio version), and pinch of Sorry Wrong Number, which made this feel derivative. Don't think I've ever read a book where someone drinks so much. It's organized from Oct. 24 to Nov. 15, and she eats actual food once - the rest of the time, it's bottle after bottle of merlot, mentioned so often, it was completely annoying. WE GOT IT BY THE SECOND CHAPTER. SHE'S AN UNRELIABLE NARRATOR. It'll probably end up a movie because of the all references to classic noir films.
Three stars because it kept me going, even as I was rolling my eyes and being annoyed. I'd give it 2.5 if I could figure out how to do half stars.

This is a fast-paced psychological thriller with lots of suspense. Although I could see where the story was heading, it still kept me reading. It is great for a holiday read because it is chopped up into short chapters with lots of scene breaks.
