For readers of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decades most anticipated debuts, to be published in thirty-six languages around the world and already in development as a major film from Fox: a twisty, powerful Hitchcockian thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house. It isn't paranoia if it's really happening . . . Anna Fox lives alone a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble? and it's shocking secrets are laid bare. What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one and nothing is what it seems. Twisty and powerful, ingenious and moving, The Woman in the Window is a smart, sophisticated novel of psychological suspense that recalls the best of Hitchcock.

This book is a cookie cutter mystery/thriller. There's nothing terribly extravagant about it. It's short and simple.
It's well written, the writing itself isn't the interesting part of the book, the writing is just a means to an end, to deliver the story. It filled a narrative void in me; to listen to a simple, by the book mystery. Like sitting down with tomato soup to watch an old familiar movie.
I've rated it so high because I think it's a cozy introduction to mystery novels and I've read worse.

The overly emotional narration of the audio book showed up all the book's flaws. Barely managed to get through it and will avoid books narrated by Ann Marie Lee in future.

I am so mad that I wasted my time on this book. Predictable, slow, overly descriptive. Also, I don't feel sorry for the main character which is key to caring about what happens.

This mystery, psycho drama was very well done. I couldn't put it down. There were a number of surprises that were cleverly dropped along the way and the ending was VERY shocking. I recommend it!
