InBooksILive Wow... that's low. What an awful thing to lie about?! 2d
Carla I‘m chronically ill, and so cannot bear to have people lie about being sick. So I won‘t be reading any of his books. 2d
MaleficentBookDragon As a person who has had cancer , as well as my sister and mother, AND having lost my dad to cancer, I find it reprehensible. If he is mentally ill, I hope he gets help; but if he is just that cruel and callous, I do not want to support him. I gave away his book when I first heard of this 2d

Rachel_nyc Wow! I lost my dad to Cancer and my mom has recently been diagnosed and has surgery scheduled so this comes close to home for me as well. This is officially off my tbr. 2d

This book is seriously boring me. But apparently not Otis the #gingerbrat #catsoflitsy

JeannieReads Same! I read it for book club, and thought it was so boring, predictable, and formulaic that I struggled to get through it. There are some pretty crazy articles out there on the author, though. Those are a fun read. 4d

A twisting and turning psychological thriller. This isn‘t my typical genre but my book club chose it for May and I‘m glad they did. A quick and engrossing read with an ending I didn‘t see coming.

I‘m a bit unsure of how to rate this... it was a page turner but I guessed some of the twists and I‘ve read better thrillers, so hmm. I‘m glad I read it, partly because so many people were talking about it, but I‘m not sure I‘d recommend it as it was just okay.

I‘m about halfway through this and it a real page turner. I have my suspicions about one part of the story and no idea about the other part, so am sneaking in a few pages every chance I get!!!

The storyline kept me interested and in suspense but the end was a bit weak I thought. Perhaps there was so much hype about this book that I expected to be wowed more than I actually was.

I still haven‘t read this book, but I did like Rear Window, which this book takes its basic plot from. And when the movie version comes out later this year, I‘ll probably see it too! #window #springintoreading

Here‘s a scene from Hitchcock‘s film Rear Window, which is stunning, especially Grace Kelly. It‘s a great story; but I also loved the tagged book for its MC.

I‘ve had this on my tbr for a minute. I honesty grabbed it because I was curious after the drama. Then I found a book club that was going to read this but it was in like a day and a half and I quickly powered thru this. The book club was tonight and it was nice. I‘ll go again next time.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I loved this book! This is the best thriller I‘ve read in a very long time. And I know it came out forever ago and I‘m slow, but... 🤷🏾‍♀️ This book was fast-paced and interesting and I honestly felt I was going a little crazy right along with Anna. And the twists! They chilled and surprised me and I absolutely loved it. I‘m glad I *finally* read this!

I started this book thinking why did I pick this book? I very quickly got caught up in Anna‘s life. My favorite part? “So:That happened.” 😂😂😂 Those of you who have read it know what I am talking about. If you have not, it will delight you. Amazing book for a first novel. I could not put it down each night. I figured things out right before the main character did. Great ride! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I listened to this on audio, and was very annoyed with the narrator. It wasn‘t until I was almost finished, that I realized the speed was on slow! Besides that, I just found much of it too unbelievable, and not really surprised at the reveals,except for the end. Anna Fox was an #easylover. When intoxicated with wine,she and her tenant hooked up. #anglophileapril

Good thriller, Hitchcock style but fairly original and very nicely written. Couldn't put it down, and the ending was good too. Thrillers usually disappoint me at the end but this one didn't.

This book was hard to get into. The main character is going through difficulties in her life. She drinks too much and is on lots of medicines . She is agoraphobic. Her life is spent online And watching old movies. She spies on her neighbor's. The story is about what happens as a result. Recommend.

bodacioustchr The twist in the story will surprise and amaze. 1mo

4.5 ⭐️- I expected The Woman In The Window to be good, but it far exceeded my expectations. The writing was very good and flowed smoothly. The story was very intriguing and kept me interested. I enjoyed the attention to psychological disorders. I think theirs some accuracy in the way many still look at such disorders. There were many dots that could be connected to lead to an answer. The correct answer at the end was a little surprising.

PSreads73 I know of the controversy surrounding the writer. Many lies he told that just don‘t make sense. Why lie about having cancer? I guess to get sympathy. The lies involving his career are probably the worst ones. Still, if I suspect the book to be good I will give it a read. Im guessing there‘s some psychological issues involved. I think the only time I wouldn‘t read a writers work is if it involved plagiarism. 2mo
BarbaraBB I agree and I am planning to read it as well. (Since I already have a copy. I don‘t think I would buy it now that I know about all the lies) 2mo
PSreads73 @BarbaraBB I‘m not sure if I would have purchased it if I‘d known. It definitely would have been a determining factor. 2mo

This quick little thriller started my week off with a bang! Although it takes awhile to uncover all of Anna‘s past, the wait isn‘t terrible as the present story is still pretty exciting. The culprit was kind of out there and weird (mainly chosen for the shock value), and it sounds like the author is also pretty out there too (a la New Yorker article/expose), so unsure if I want to support him in the future.

MaleficentBookDragon I know what you mean. As someone who has had cancer (as well as my sister, mother, and brother in law having it) plus my dad dying from cancer, I felt I could not support him. I gave his book away without reading it. 2mo
