The Woman in the Window by A.J.  Finn

Clear rating
With plenty of references to noir and thrillers of classic film, The Woman in the Window is a twisty, exciting read that will keep you turning pages 'till the end. Stuff it in your carry-on and you won't be sorry.
Michelle and 905 other people liked Emily May's review of The Woman in the Window:
The Woman in the Window by A.J.  Finn
"
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 w..." Read more of this review »
Michelle and 1 other person liked Susan's review of The Woman in the Window:
The Woman in the Window by A.J.  Finn
""The Woman in the Window" is very loosely based on the concept of the James Stewart-Grace Kelly movie "Rear Window" in that the protagonists observe goings on in homes across the small park from them, but the similarity ends there.

Dr. Anna Fox is..." Read more of this review »

What amazes me is that people are having discussions about which parts of the "unreliable" narration were real and to what extent... this book is a darn good read because it's fairly mindless fun. Decide for yourself which part is made up baloney (a ...more

I found this in a cruise-ship library and wasn't aware it was a children's book!

The quirky characters and a feel-good nontraditional ending certainly helped me figure it out, though.

The road-trip book has been flooding the market since The Odyssey,

Found this one on the shelf of a cruise-ship library: that in itself was surprising. Surprising is the word I'd use to describe this book. While I can't quite identify with the narrator/poet, I can empathize with her. Her writing faces both intensely ...more

Another book found on the cruise ship & one well worth the read. This would be a good pairing with The Nightingale as they have similarly strong female characters fighting oppression and excellent descriptions of the WWII period.

“This sentence is made of lead (and a sentence of lead gives a reader an entirely different sensation from one made of magnesium). This sentence is made of yak wool. This sentence is made of sunlight and plums. This sentence is made of ice. This sentence is made from the blood of the poet. This sentence was made in Japan. This sentence glows in the dark. This sentence was born with a caul. This sentence has a crush on Norman Mailer. This sentence is a wino and doesn't care who knows it. Like many italic sentences, this one has Mafia connections. This sentence is a double Cancer with a Pisces rising. This sentence lost its mind searching for the perfect paragraph. This sentence refuses to be diagrammed. This sentence ran off with an adverb clause. This sentence is 100 percent organic: it will not retain a facsimile of freshness like those sentences of Homer, Shakespeare, Goethe et al., which are loaded with preservatives. This sentence leaks. This sentence doesn't look Jewish... This sentence has accepted Jesus Christ as its personal savior. This sentence once spit in a book reviewer's eye. This sentence can do the funky chicken. This sentence has seen too much and forgotten too little. This sentence is called "Speedoo" but its real name is Mr. Earl. This sentence may be pregnant. This sentence suffered a split infinitive - and survived. If this sentence has been a snake you'd have bitten it. This sentence went to jail with Clifford Irving. This sentence went to Woodstock. And this little sentence went wee wee wee all the way home.”
