The Woman in the Window
by A. J. Finn
Discussion Questions:
1. Anna has agoraphobia and an alcohol problem. She also pops pills. Do you think this is the reason she is not a reliable narrator? And because of this, did it make you doubt that she was witness to a murder? And why do you think the author made her so flawed?

2. Why do you think Anna was so obsessed with her neighbors? Do you think it was more than loneliness or curiosity? Was it a way for her to connect to the outside world?

4. Did your opinion of Anna change as the book progressed? How? Talk about the fact that Anna is a child psychologist and yet can't seem to get control of her life.

4. Did you believe Anna when she acted as if her husband and daughter were still alive or were you surprised to find out the truth?

5. How do you think the author handled grief and some of the other themes like depression and anxiety?

6. The book is written by a man with a female narrator. How do you think this author did with the female perspective?

7. The author dropped a lot of red herrings to try and keep the reader guessing. Did they work for you or did you see through them? Do you think they added value to the book? Talk about some of them.

8. Talk about the pacing and the plot twists. Did you feel the book was evenly paced? Did you see the plot twists coming?

9. What did you think of the ending? Were you able to guess the truth? Can you think of a better ending?

10. This book is often compared to GONE GIRL and GIRL ON THE TRAIN. How do you think it stacks up?
