Hello, friends! Welcome back to the blog. In today’s post, we have another book review.
The Woman in the Window follows Anna Fox, a woman who has struggled with agoraphobia for the past ten months. She has not been able to leave her home and instead fills her day with copious amounts of wine, anti-anxiety medication, and old thriller movies.
One day she witnesses an attack in the home across the way from her, but when she calls the police, nobody believes that she saw anything.
What follows is Anna’s quest to find out not only what happened that fateful night, but also leads her to wonder if she can trust her own mind.
I will admit that it took me awhile to become fully invested in this story, but once I hit the 200 page mark, I was committed! The writer does a really fantastic job of creating an atmosphere of claustrophobia, paranoia, and isolation. There are certain plot points that I wish they would have gone into more detail about, but that would probably be my only real complaint. While this book is already around 400 pages long, I would have read even more!
This book is full of twists and turns, and while I was able to guess one of the surprises early on, there were plenty more to come later on, making this book good until the last drop. If you’re looking for a good thriller to read, I would definitely recommend giving this one a go.
Netflix also created a movie adaptation for this book! I haven’t watched it as of right now, but based on what I’ve read on the internet… the book is definitely worth a read, but the movie? Not so much. I may end up watching it — I think it may be a good rainy day movie.
And that’s that, my dear friends!
Have a great rainy day!
