Inhaltsangabe

"Astounding. Thrilling. Amazing." (Gillian Flynn)

"Unputdownable." (Stephen King)

"A dark, twisty confection." (Ruth Ware)

"Absolutely gripping." (Louise Penny)

For listeners of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decade's most anticipated debuts, to be published in 36 languages around the world and already in development as a major film from Fox: A twisty, powerful Hitchcockian thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house.

It isn't paranoia if it's really happening....

Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times...and spying on her neighbors.

Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble. And its shocking secrets are laid bare.

What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one - and nothing - is what it seems.

Twisty and powerful, ingenious and moving, The Woman in the Window is a smart, sophisticated novel of psychological suspense that recalls the best of Hitchcock.

Bonus: Includes an interview with author A. J. Finn.

Positively Hitchcockian.

The story is masterfully told –entirely from the perspective of a manic, addicted recluse– with a well crafted plot full of twists and turns, hints, red herrings, and mcguffins. The character's backstory unfolds quite in the same slow, deliberate way. Only gradually does the reader/listener get to know the protagonist's true mental state; all the way wondering whether the action is real or just a figment.
Films noires were the author's inspiration and he did a good job at adapting the genre: the mood, the stylisation, the exaggerations – all perfectly plausible as seen through the protagonist's frantic eyes.
The narrator tried to do the same, sounding more and more hysterical as the story progresses. Great voice acting really! Only it's an audio book and not radio drama! Listening to her increasingly shrill diction for 14 hours might well drive the listener into lunacy as well.

furchtbare Sprecherin und schwache Story

die ununterbrochen weinerlich, depressive Tonlage der Sprecherin, die das gesamte Hörbuch die Leiden einer psychisch Kranken herunterjammert, sowie eine schwache und wenig ereignisreiche Story mit wenigen Überraschungen waren zusammen einfach nur unerträglich..

a slow start then unputtdownable

Story slowly builds and then gets addictive..iI can highly recommend this but causes sleepless nights as I could not stop listening.

Horrible

I tried to listen to this 3 times and it annoyed me more each time. Slow, boring, readers voice is not good, filling up time with "the doctor is in" . Made it 30 minutes all together and deleted it. Waste of money.
