the story was nice enough, but this story had been tools a million times just with different names. There is not enough attention placed on giving the characters identities beyond very surface information, which means they are hard to relate to. Alister is probably the only character who had a lot of personality and is relatable. Mary, the poor little rich girl, who is so pretty she inadvertently steals all the attention from her poor friend Hilda, but has no idea she's doing it... Please... That is the biggest clue this book is written by a man.

Absolutely Brilliant

I don't even know where to start... this book is harrowing, horrifying and uplifting all at once. Yo have survived such abuse and come out the other side able to shine a very honest light is quite remarkable. There are many aspects of this tale I was able to identify with and I couldn't recommend this book highly enough.

Entertaining, But A Little Unresolved.

I enjoyed listening to the story, and while I liked the story overall, parts of it felt a bit disjointed and unresolved. We do b always have our questions answered in life, but I do like a little more explanation in books.

I don't like spoiler reviews, so I won't do one. I think a few openings in books are nice, but I think there were just a few to many holes in the story.

Great book, not easy.

What made the experience of listening to The Woman in the Window the most enjoyable?

I really enjoyed the story and the building of characters and tension. There was always a new release of info in each chapter. I didn't expect the ending at all, which made it even better. I'm rarely surprised.

What did you like best about this story?

Anna was a very likable character. The author did a good job of building sympathy for her situation and opening a window into condition that most people know nothing about.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I think this was a book that would always be a little hard to get into when listening to someone else read it. It would have been easier to read, but I also found the narrator a little over enthusiastic. She always sounded just a little excited and I that also made it a bit harder for me to listen to.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, it definitely needed to be broken down. It was intense.

Heart warming

I’ve begun to be able to predict Nicholas Sparks novels, but I love them nonetheless. The story took a few wonderful twists and turns, and while I did anticipate the ending, the characters are certainly well written and thought out. Was definitely worth the listen.

Fabulous

I am a huge fan of Gail Carriger already, and now having found the follow on from one of my favourite series, I’m completely enthralled. The characters are all well thought out, witty, funny, and the story full of little surprise twists and turns. I’m really enjoying the links back to the Parasol Protectorate and the continuation of a story I fell very much in love with.
