Welcome back to AZE!
Today, I'm back with a book review!
The Woman in the Window
Anna Fox lives alone in her New York City home. She spends her day drinking wine, reminiscing on her past, and watching neighbors. One day, a new family moves into the house across the way. Anna soon comes to admire the perfect family. But when one night, she sees something she shouldn’t, Anna finds herself in the center of a dark secret with no way out.
After waiting months to get my hands on this one, I FINALLY received it in the mail two weeks ago. Man oh man was this one worth the wait...
@thrilltalkblog and I chose this for our first buddy read. We couldn't have picked a better book! In only 24 hours, we devoured the first half of the 427 page novel...
The Woman in the Window is absolutely brilliant. A.J. Finn's writing is impeccable. The story is colorful and vivid but not overdone. The author does a great job at using imagery while being concise. At no point did I feel that the storyline was overdramatized.
I was completely blown away by Finn's character development. Each and every character, whether principal or secondary, had a lively personality. This made for an extremely enjoyable and memorable novel.
What I enjoyed most about The Woman in the Window was its ability to convey danger and trouble. There's no doubt that I'm a thriller and mystery junkie. However, I can count on one hand the novels that have genuinely made me feel afraid and even astounded. On countless occasions, The Woman in the Window made me feel completely on edge, creeped out, and even frightened.
Although I really enjoyed this book, I rated it 4.5 stars solely because I was able to figure out the ending. Because of this, the climax and ending weren't as satisfying as they should've been.
Regardless, there's no doubt that this book could very easily be a 5-star read for almost all of my peers. If you're a mystery/thriller lover or are simply in the mood for a page-turner, I urge you to get your hands on this novel as soon as possible!
