Hard to have put the book down. Finished in 3 days.
I enjoyed the book and read it within two days. Some parts became rather drawn out and that is why I could not give it 5 stars. The main character can be very frustrating but since I have a friend who struggled with agoraphobia and alcoholism I was able to be sympathetic and understand her. Otherwise I may have not continued because she is that frustrating. The book had one moment that stopped me dead in my tracks and I had to let it absorb a while. Something I have rarely experienced and for that reason I highly recommend taking the time to read it.
A book that keeps you on your toes from the very beginning until the end. Definitely one you don’t want to miss!
Just when you think you know what's happening and see what's coming, BAM! Plot twist and you actually had no idea. Suspenseful read, I don't recommend reading at night unless you want to get zero sleep.
I do not understand the good reviews or critical acclaim from other writers. It was obvious as soon as the narrator mentioned her estranged husband and daughter that they were dead. The other bizarre storyline with the neighbors rang so false and yet it was again obvious that there was someone messing with the narrator (otherwise EVERYTHING in the book would made up and therefore pointless). The “twist” that is was Ethan was lame- you knew it was someone from the family and it landed like a dud. Furthermore I could barely get through the book- it was just so slow and pointless. How many times can we watch the main character get drunk and take pills? I have read almost every psychological thriller out there and I can’t fathom why anyone thinks this is good, let alone enthralling. Don’t waste your money, no matter how discounted the price.
The ending was a great twist which is always my favorite part of the book. The main character Anna, has a trait of thinking many things at once. I get it, it’s a character trait that may be good for a movie but sometimes it was difficult to keep up with what exactly was going on because some thoughts are just so random and out of context. It took a longgggg time to get to the climax of the book and for that reason and the reason above, I give it 4 stars.
First off, I must say I read a lot of suspense, crime novels and am often disappointed by the predictable endings. However, that was not the case with the Woman in the Window. This book is a true psychological thriller that has surprises right through till the end. The only thing that would have made the book better would have been a longer, full circle ending.
The first couple. Halters were ok and then it went from predicable to curing my insomnia. I can’t believe so many people gave it high marks.
Haven’t read a book this great in years. Couldn’t put it down. Surprised me at every turn. Really terrific!!!
Loved this book. Twists and turns throughout!
The slow tease of what happened to Anna with what happened across the park, intertwine into a great, suspenseful read.
Great captivating read! Twist and turn thriller!
