Anna always watching the neighbors every day because she cannot leave her place: Not like physical problem like Jimmie Stewart had, she is fighting with her own inner not so little demanding evils. She saw something very dangerous, lethal! She calls the authorities to inform them but did she really witness to a murder? Did she create all of it in her head? We don’t know that because we have unreliable narrator. Don’t get me wrong! I love her from the beginning! I root for her and I wanted to know what kind of events put her in so much pain. 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 lot of action to begin with. But that kind of works. But a little of that goes along way and I kept waiting for something to happen to turn up the pace. But no one believes her - she is written off as an unstable and unreliable source. She clearly made the whole thing up, what other explanation is there?

It's about a woman called Anna who lives alone ever since separating from her husband and daughter. We're not told the circumstances of the separation, but we do know that Anna has a drinking problem and severe agoraphobia that prevents her from leaving the house. Lang, Brent (March 26, 2018).

Child psychologist Anna Fox lives alone in a Manhattan brownstone after separating from her husband Edward; he lives away with their daughter Olivia, but she talks to them on a daily basis. Anna suffers from agoraphobia and her housebound state leads her to observe all of her neighbors from a second-storey window, including the Russell family who recently moved in across the street. She also takes a large number of medications and drinks heavily. More importantly, how does this A.J. Finn person manage to breathe new life into something that I vehemently hate? I mean it is well documented all over Goodreads how I often find these books to be OK best, and that’s rare. Now, here I am cranking this book on up to 4 stars like a total hypocrite. I get it. It’s fine.

Reading A.J. Finn's new, much-hyped thriller, The Woman in the Window, I had lots of paranoia-related songs running through my head (including Garbage's I Think I'm Paranoid and the line from Harvey Danger's Flagpole Sitta which goes, "Paranoia, paranoia, everybody's coming to get me..."), but I felt the above lyrics by The Kinks described this book's protagonist perfectly. Ethan Russell, the shy and polite teenage son who lives across the park and becomes friends with AnnaThe Woman in the Window suffers from the usual domestic thriller malady: an intriguing premise and a strong start that never quite materializes into a satisfying narrative. But I'm getting really tired of the unreliable narrator with a drinking problem. It's just something that I feel like I've read so many times (Girl on the Train, Woman in Cabin 10, etc). Who is this A.J. Finn person and what makes them so special coming out here in 2018 with a title and a plot we have all seen dozens of times already? This is a solid 4 Stars for me. It’s been awhile since I’ve read a psychological suspense thriller —-a surprise gift in the mail. My copy says a film is already in the making. I can definitely see this novel as a movie. It should be good! The book is good. 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 when my library holds come in, so here I am reading a book with "Woman" in the title.

And that's the moment when everything turns upside down. Did Anna actually see anything, or was it a hallucination from her medicine or the old movies she has seen over and over again? What is she to believe, her eyes or those who tell her what her eyes have or haven't seen? What, and who, is real? Does she have anyone or anything to fear? Kit, Borys (July 25, 2018).

Retrieved August 5, 2018. Anna Fox was once an active child psychologist with a wonderful life. But after a traumatic event almost a year ago, everything changed. She now suffers from agoraphobia. Her home is her entire world…she no longer goes outside. Anna’s life now consists of old movies, a lot of wine (and prescription pills), and online chat rooms. But she’s also found another way to spend her time…. watching the neighbors through her camera lens. She knows everyone’s schedule; she even knows who is having an affair.Realizing that he intends to kill her too, Anna flees. He pursues her to the roof where she pushes him through an old skylight to his death. Alistair is arrested as an accessory to Katie's murder, and Anna slowly starts her life over again. I definitely didn’t relate to Anna, but I also had a hard time finding her believable. The idea that she’d be able to consume multiple bottles of wine at one time, on top of prescription drugs and be able to speak or walk at all seemed unbelievable. I’d be comatose, not just slurring my words. However, I didn’t think of her as a stalker or a voyeur, I didn’t find her creepy that way. Families can talk about how The Woman in the Window creates suspense. Which moments stand out to you as the tensest, and why?
