Great book, well read. Really evocative of the best of the 'film noir' genre without overdoing it or driving you crazy with references. It works.
mi è piaciuto moltissimo, facile da capire è finito in solo tre settimane. Si legge tutto di un fiato
An old-fashioned thriller that works while talking about psychological thrillers and reviving them with panache and style, be assured you will have a few very enjoyable hours of good entertainment.
What makes this book work is how well we get to know the main character before we get into the plot and how unaware we are of how manipulative the writer is, he knows every trick and uses them to take us in every path he chooses to.
Yes, it is very entertaining and a pleasure.

What did you like most about The Woman in the Window?
It was so different to all the other so called psychological thrillers that are around at the moment and kept me riveted! I was hooked and kept listening to it through the night and could feel this woman's pain. The characters were real to me, flawed and tormented.Set amost all in one house, it was claustrophobic, atmospheric, giving a feel for Anna's agarophobia, her fears and her bravery.
What does Ann Marie Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
This book is brilliantly narrated by Ann Marie. She has exactly the right voice for Anna, a woman haunted by her past, trapped by her mistakes, struggling to surface and full of self doubt.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I didn't want to switch off!
Any additional comments?
I enjoyed the references to some old films enjoyed by Anna such as Gaslight and Rear Window, which are also my favourites. Hitchcock could have done a good job on this book! More please!

Not bad for a first time author. it went on a bit too long in parts and I picked the "twists" early on. An interesting protagonist though. perhaps i didnt appreciate the film analogies due to not having an interest in those films. well read.

I thought the plot was good, the twists and turns were excellent, certainly kept you guessing right up till the last few chapters. The only thing I can fault is the thoughts in Anna’s head sometimes waffles on abit. I got abit bored listening to how her ears raged, her heart beats etc, just get to the good bit ffs. Other than that, great, loved it
