The Woman In The Window by A. J. Finn Review

Good afternoon everyone! Mommy Reads here! :) Ever get super excited about a book and it not meet your expectations? This was the case with The Woman In The Window by A. J. Finn. Here is my review:

"Agoraphobia is an intense fear and anxiety of being in places where it is hard to escape, or where help might not be available. Agoraphobia usually involves fear of crowds, bridges, or of being outside alone." -NIH

Anna Fox lives alone in her NYC home. Unable to leave her house, she spends her days drinking wine and watching her neighbors from her windows. When the Russells move into the house across the park, they seem like the perfect family. Until one night she sees something she shouldn't and her world begins to crumble. What's real? What's imagined? Why don't anybody believe Anna when she comes forward with what she saw?

Like I said, I've read so many great reviews about The Woman In The Window and so I had high expectations about it. To be honest I had a hard time getting into the story. I reached the halfway point and really thought about stopping there but decided to continue after a few of my reader friends told  me it gets better. So many pages were read diagonally, or just skipped entirely. Fast forward to almost 3/4 of the book where it suddenly gets intense and I finally want to keep reading. When the twist finally happens, I could not put it down and I did not see it coming until all the facts were laid out. Wow! For a twist, it was excellent! It just sucks the rest of the story was not as good. Because of that, I have to give it 3.5 star instead of 4.
