I’m back again with more audio books! It’s a short list but I think it’s more manageable with fewer summaries. I’ve been on a roll lately and I just purchased The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The House with a Clock in it’s Walls. So excited for those!
The Woman In The Window: A novel. This novel is the first phycho-thriller from A.J. Finn. The book is based in New York and is the story of a woman named Anna Fox. She is a child psychiatrist turned agoraphobic. Agoraphobia is the fear of places and situations that may cause you panic. Anna has a trauma in her past that made her this way so she now spends her days indoors on online chat rooms, playing chess and spying on her neighbors. One day while checking in on the house next door, she sees something that she shouldn’t. Anna tries to put together what she saw and find answers to her questions… the answers all come out in the end. This was the longest audio book that I have listened to, to date. It is over 12 hours which is surprising since most of the story is told in one place. There is so much detail that you can really picture what the scenes look like. Very well written and keeps you interested the whole time. Lots of twists happen in this book and a few flashbacks that are vital to the story. Great listen!
The Shark and I by Cara Lockwood is a book about a woman named Lori who’s getting back into the dating world with the help of her daughter signing her up for a dating app. Much to Lori’s surprise, she gets matched with a few men in just one day. One of which is a business rival. Lori’s company is merging with another company and she matched with the rivals CEO. They develop a relationship but Lori’s is constantly thinking if he’s just getting close to her to gain insider information. It’s a short listen at about 5.5 hours. It was good but it needs to be more detailed and much longer. There’s a lot of time and information missing in the middle before the book ends. Overall, great book to pass the time on a flight or while driving.
Thank you so much for reading! Until next time,
