    Women, girls... they are everywhere, man. They?re in cabins, they?re on trains, they?re in spider?s webs or hornet?s nests. Sometimes they?re gone. Sometimes someone let them go. Sometimes they?re in a group. In this case, there is a woman in a window. She?s not a woman...

    This review is a hard one for me. I struggled with the first half of the book, only to be totally drawn in by the end. The book starts offs slowly, setting the stage. Anna Fox is a child psychotherapist who suffers from agoraphobia. As she?s trapped in her house, there?s not a ...

    Who knows what goes on in a family? Okay, I really don't want to misrepresent this book: The Woman in the Window is a pulpy, fast-paced popcorn thriller. It's not mindblowing or groundbreaking, but it is pageturning goodness. And it was exactly what I needed to get lost in right now...

    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...

    "I am locked in. I am locked out." Anna Fox has more intricate layers than a double-decker BLT tilting towards the mayo. Ain't no toothpick strong enough to keep this one from skidding off the plate. Anna exists behind the shuttered doors and windows of her four-story home in New...

    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...

    I suppose I did recently say it would be a long time before I read another book with "Girl" in the title. While in this case the word is "Woman", the trendy use of "Woman" in titles lately is just about as bad as "Girl", so it might as well be the same thing. Also, I have no control of...

    4.5 stars!! Okay, the hype this book is getting is warranted. I usually stink at guessing the outcome of a mysterious plot, the ?who done it? but I was spot on this time (yes!) and that still didn?t deter me from loving this book. The ending? CRAZY!!! P.S. Loved all the movie ref...

    I'm really torn on this one, because on one hand I was able to see all the twists coming (see Karen Brissette's review for my similar feelings on this), and it was a long book to feel entirely predictable, but on the other it was still a fun, enjoyable novel and I whole heartedly embra...

    Sometimes books are not up to our expectations, and this was the case regarding The Woman in the Window and me ..... I did want to enjoy it, I really did! But I felt tired & disappointed by the story and by Anna Fox. She suffered a great loss and she had my sympathy there, however,...

    I don't know if this is an unpopular opinion but I'm getting a bit tired of reading mysteries where the main female character is an alcoholic. I get it, it makes them unreliable (and relatable for some maybe?) but it's a cheap way of doing it. With that said, I'm usually not too di...

    It isn't paranoia if it's really happening... The Woman in the Window is intoxicating, dark, and simply unputdownable. AJ Finn's debut novel is placed in current day, gentrified Harlem, New York City, where Dr. Anna Fox spends her day in her five-story townhouse drinking Merlot, ...
