The Woman in the Window Reviews
5/5 Stars. I am SO BLOWN AWAY BY THIS NOVEL. The Woman In The Window is an absolutely amazing debut mystery-thriller. I cannot recommend it enough.
CW: agoraphobia, anxiety, depression, substance abuse/alcoholism, murder, death, grief
My favorite part of this novel is the writing style. A.J. Finn has the perfect sort of prose that forces you to think, “How can someone ACTUALLY think like this? How does someone forms the words to illustrate such a perfect passage?” This book is descriptive in a way ...more
Traveling Sisters Read by Brenda and Norma with Holly, Kaceey, Susanne, Lindsay, Jan, Kendall, and Diane
I really enjoyed the premise of this book and found the agoraphobia aspect of this novel quite fascinating. Even though this book was a little lengthy it read really fast for me because of the short chapters and I was really intrigued by the woman in the window. I did end up in the craters of the dry coulee though as there were a few aspects of this novel that I found didn't quite make sense t ...more
If you are looking for a gripping book that will capture your attention and keep you turning pages late into the night, The Woman in the Window is for you! It's been noted the story is similar to The Girl on the Train; that's true, but I found this story much more exciting and engaging.
Every part of this novel was just amazing. Anna was such a multi-faceted character. After leading a fairly "normal" life, she had undergone a series of tragedies in the previous year. Some of her reactions seemed ...more

I loved it! This book has restored my faith in psychological thrillers and was a solid 5 star reading experience. It’s well-written, perfectly plotted, and riveting. I had trouble putting it down and became annoyed when life interrupted my reading – it didn't feel like >400 pages and I could have happily read it cover to cover in one sitting.
Anna is a 38 year-old child psychologist with agoraphobia, who hasn’t left her home for over a year. Her husband left her some time ago, and took their ...more
I had “The Woman in the Window” on my list to read, but thought it would be awhile before I got to it. But then I came across it on Audible. So I decided to use one of my credits for it. I am starting to enjoy audiobooks a lot more, though I do find them harder to review. I usually have a ton of post-it tabs in the books I read that help me keep track of things. With audio, I’m usually relaxing and don’t want to stop to make a note.
Anna Fox was once an active child psychologist with a wonderful ...more
3.25 Stars* (rounded down).
Anna Fox is home bound. She hasn’t left her home in almost a year. She has groceries delivered and keeps all the windows closed. She watches old black and white movies, takes anti-depressants and mixes them with alcohol, lots of alcohol - which her doctor has strongly advised against. Besides watching old movies, her only other source of entertainment is watching what goes on outside of her windows. Sneaking peaks of her neighbors activities. One day, what Anna sees ou ...more
