I would give this book 4 for a review.
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.
I really enjoyed reading this book. The writing style was engaging and I liked reading about Anna Fox( the main character and only POV). She wasn’t always likable and made some poor decisions , but that just made her more realistic. There was a slow start, that took awhile to pick up, about 120 pages. I did see most of the twists before they happened. One of the major twists, I had figured out about fifty pages in. Overall that did not take away from my enjoyment of reading this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who like to read a good psychological thriller.
