The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh boy. Have you read this one yet? You should. You absolutely should. I know that there are a lot of comparisons made with the Woman in the Window and novels like Gone Girl or the Girl on the train and they are completely understandable. This book has so many twists and turns that I couldn't even stop to think about what I was reading.
Usually for me, I skip to the last page of a mystery novel once I get to the central core of the mystery that's trying to be solved. I like to try and figure out how the author is going to get me there.
This novel had me so sucked in that I FORGOT TO DO IT. That's never ever happened to me before. I inhaled it.
The story follows a woman who is homebound due to extreme agoraphobia. She witnesses what she believes to be a murder while watching the world go by from her window. From here her small and safe little world begins to unravel as though pulling a stray thread from a sweater.
I will say that I figured out the end, but it wasn't long until the protagonist worked everything out as well. I only had a few pages on her revelations. Some of the surprises threw me off completely…in that "wait…WHAT?" sort of way.
I'm excited to see the forthcoming movie for this one. It's not a stretch to tell you that AJ Finn has a new fan in me.
