Book Review for THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW by A.J. Finn
THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW by A.J. Finn
☕ ☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
My Highly Caffeinated Thought: An irresistible dark tale that manipulates perception all with a Hitchcockian flare.
In THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, Finn weaves together a story that leads you in one direction and then completely turns you around causing the reader to constantly question everything they think they know.
What is real? This question is the one constant of the book and is propelled by the evolution of Anna's character. The way that the author gradually reveals bits and pieces of the characters' lives adds both to the tension and the way that the story moves forward. By incorporating Anna's mental illness and possible delusions, Finn expertly creates a narrative that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. Oh the twists and turns this book takes!
This book is one of those that you finish and think "Wow". I loved every single page, twist, and moment spent reading this. I cannot recommend it more.

About the Book:
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.
About the Author: A.J. Finn has written for numerous publications, including the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, and the Times Literary Supplement (UK). A native of New York, Finn lived in England for ten years before returning to New York City.
