If it weren’t such an addictive read, I probably wouldn’t have had the patience to finish it because I admittedly find it longer than necessary. It was the classic thrillers and her online conversations that kept Anna‘s narrative entertaining.
I have mentioned in several reviews that I am not a huge fan of unreliable narrators but Anna is quite a sympathetic character because of her sarcastic humor and of her condition (agoraphobia) due to a traumatic experience which also consequently rendered her an alcoholic.
It’s impressive how Anna’s life took an eventful turn despite being confined alone in her home especially since the arrival of the new neighbors, the Russells. Blame it to her nosy-ness, watching her neighbors from her window because of boredom.
The twists were quite unusual too. I found them unexpected, albeit just slightly unbelievable. Nonetheless, it was as a whole an entertaining and engaging thriller and I’m glad I was finally able to read it. I mean, the author is my namesake so I just had to read it. Lol. Definitely looking forward to seeing the movie.
