Or perhaps a book to read for your next flight across country or abroad?
The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn, published by Harper Collins, New York, New York is a spellbinding novel that I was unable to put down from start to finish. Written in a diary-like format, the book takes you into the life of Anna Fox, a psychologist who is a recluse in her New York City home.
I’m not going to keep you in suspense, but this author will right to the very end.
A.J. Finn’s debut novel, The Woman in the Window earns a 5-HOOT rating from this reader.
Anna Fox is a psychologist who has agoraphobia. She exists day by day peering through the windows of her home examining and often photographing the lives of her neighbors. When she’s not studying her neighbors, she binges on watching old movies, drinks too much red wine that she mixes with a small pharmacy prescribed by her therapist.
A new family, the Russells move in across the park. In addition, Anna takes in a somewhat mysterious tenant who resides in the bottom of her multi-level home. Together, these new inhabitants in her small world create a havoc for Anna, who believes something tragic has happened in the Russell home. Her agoraphobia complicates her discovering if what she thinks is real, her imagination or what others believe is just a case of paranoia brought on by her diet of wine and pills.
Author A.J. Finn is poetic in his weaving of his psychological thriller. The writing is beautiful and the tempo of building the suspense is spellbinding. What a grand debut novel. I cannot wait for his next book. Please, Mr. Finn don’t make your new fans wait too long.
