How are you all doing? How’s the quarantining going on? Hope everyone’s taking good care of themselves. And doing as many good deeds and prayers in the blessed month of Ramadan.
Before Ramadan started, I had finished the book ‘The Woman in the Window’ but couldn’t post up a review. So I thought to share with you all about it now.
I had heard someone mention the title to me, just can’t place my finger on that person now. I googled up and saw it had some quite good reviews while some didn’t seem impressed. Well, that’s always the story with a book recommendation.
The Woman in the Window, is about a woman (do I even need to tell that!) named Anna Fox. She lives alone, a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine, watching old movies, recalling happier times as a doctor, spending time with her husband and daughter . . . and spying on her neighbors.
One day, the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother and their teenage son. The perfect family. One night, gazing out her window Anna sees something she shouldn’t have. Her world begins to crumble as everyone seems to question her mental state. The more she tries to bring out the truth, the more her condition seems to deteriorate. With each page, shocking secrets are laid bare.
What is real? What did she see? Was it her imagination? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is as it seems.
I enjoyed this one a lot. Well structured and amazingly laid out, the story did keep me captivated till the end. Undoubtedly, a book I would suggest to anyone who enjoys reading thrillers.
What are you all reading? Or what was the last one you read, do share!
Stay home. Stay safe.
