This is the first fiction novel I have been able to get into for a long time...I usually prefer non-fiction or YouTube. And by "get into" I mean I was completely absorbed and mesmerized. This writer uses language lusciously. I was compelled all the way through. I'm returning it early so the next person can read it ASAP.

Found it tedious and draggy. Just couldn't get into the character...oh well, can't like them all

I have read a lot of thrillers but this one was amazing. I started it at 4:30 pm and quite literally couldn’t stop. Finished it at 10 pm. Now I am going to look up A. J. Finn and see if she has started her next book yet!

Very, very, very well-written. This book makes you feel a plethora of emotions. I was so touched and experienced annoyance, disappointment, shock, etc. at the same time.

The Woman in the Window is a rollercoaster. There are plenty of twists and turns at every corner in the story, and I was always on the edge of my seat. Also, the ending is so creepy and messed up.

A long slog through boredom. Not especially well written. Nothing new or original. Couldn't care less about the characters.

I really enjoyed this fast-moving book. I read the large print version -- almost 600 pages -- in two days during a beach vacation! If you are looking for a new author, this could be the book for you.

This is a well written psychological thriller. If you liked Gone Girl and Girl on the Train you will enjoy this one.

This novel reads like a stylish black and white film noir. A. J. Finn has written a story that is an homage to all the old films of the 40s and 50s. He has created a psychological thriller that could have been directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Turn off your phone, pour yourself a glass of wine and prepare to be thrilled. NC

"As Bernard Shaw said, I often quote myself; it adds spice to the conversation. As Shaw also said, alcohol is the anesthesia by which we endure the operation of life. Good old Shaw."
