Book Review: The Woman in the Window

This book made me wish I’d seen more old black and white movies.  Anna, the main character, name drops about three per page.  Thankfully, I recently saw Hitchcock’s Rear Window, on which this new thriller is [very] loosely based.  If you haven’t seen it, don’t worry, this is still an enjoyable, quick read.

Unlike Rear Window, we’re dealing with an unreliable narrator here.  Anna is sure she has witnessed a murder; however, no one is keen to believe the drunk agoraphobe.  As her claims are rebuked over and over, she begins to question herself.  As a psychiatrist, Anna is trained to evaluate people and situations, but now her instincts may be off.

This book has some great twists and turns, and I can totally see how it would play out as a movie…which it will be soon.

3.75 out of 5 stars.
