Publisher's Summary

The Girl on the Train meets Rear Window. The Watcher is an absolutely addictive and on trend commercial psychological suspense audiobook, with a captivating unreliable narrator and some powerful narrative twists.
She's watching you, but who's watching her?
Lily Gullick lives with her husband, Aiden, in a new-build flat opposite an estate which has been marked for demolition. A keen bird-watcher, she can't help spying on her neighbours. Until one day Lily sees something suspicious through her binoculars, and soon her elderly neighbour, Jean, is found dead.
Lily, intrigued by the social divide in her local area as it becomes increasingly gentrified, knows that she has to act. But her interference is not going unnoticed, and as she starts to get close to the truth, her own life comes under threat. But can Lily really trust everything she sees?

Strange

When I was listening to this book I found the narrator irritating, " I sar it " SAW!! It's SAW! there is no R! he was sarring SAWING!! Also "ive been sat here" poor grammar, I didn't like that. The story was a bit boring for me , not enough going on , too much bird watching . I wouldn't recommend it.

Had a love hate relationship with this one

There were times when I loved the book and times when the main character annoyed me so much I wanted to give up. 3 star rating for that reason.

Could not get into it

Pitched as TGOTT meets Rear Window, i felt this did not live up to that promise. I don't want to ruin the plot for anyone but will say I found the writing style off-putting and saw the twists coming very early on. I hung in until the end as many reviewers said it got better. The narrator does quite well given what seems a difficult style to read.
