The page-turner ‘The Woman in the Window’, written by A.J. Finn, is a thriller novel released in 2018.
After being such a big fan of ‘The Girl on the Train’, someone recommended this novel by A.J. Finn to me. In contrast to the rather mediocre film adaption, the book was well-received. It debuted at number 1 on the New York Times Best Seller list.
Apart from that, this book was a psychological thriller entirely to my taste. As befits a story of this genre, the author kept the tension high until the end. I wasn’t sure how it would conclude until the very last pages, as I had several guesses. But I can reveal this much: I liked it a lot.
I quickly got into the story and was drawn into the life of Dr Anna Fox. She’s a pill-addicted ex-child psychologist who has agoraphobia. Her encounter with the neighbour’s son and his family drives the story forward. Halfway through the book, a twist I hadn’t expected surprised me. I sat there with my book in my hand and groaned, “WHAT?”. And that wasn’t the only revelation because there were always new twists.
I can recommend this story to anyone who likes dark, unpredictable thrillers. This book by A.J. Finn is definitely worth a read.
My rating for ‘The Woman in the Window’
I absolutely loved the plot and the characters. It was a fantastic read, and I highly recommend it to everyone.
