Book Review / The Woman in the Window by AJ Finn

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.

I was so excited to pick this up as I had seen this book everywhere!  I am still in a bit of a thriller reading kick, so knew immediately that this was something that I needed to pick up and read straight away!  

I have to be honest here and said that although the first part of the story was very interesting,  by the time I got to the middle and headed towards the end I found myself getting bored.  Maybe this says more about me and my reading experience with this novel, I am not sure.  By the time I had read a bit of this novel I had figured out basically everything that was happening and going to happen, including the big reveal nearer the end.  Had I not figured that out near the beginning, this definitely would have been a 4 or 5 star book.  

Sad about this one but I did enjoy the writing style and will certainly be looking out for more from this author.
