Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times...and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble. And its shocking secrets are laid bare.

Slow beginning, didn't get really into it until somewhere half through. Way too predictable and the ending didn't bring any surprises at all, but still worth reading if you got nothing better to do.

I don't even know what else to say. I finished it in two days, because I couldn't stop listening to it. It was such a nail biter and the ending... oh the ending. Absolutely perfect. Breath taking. I loved it!

I absolutely loved this book. The characters were interesting and there were these mysteries you couldn't wait to find out more about. The ending, however, disappointed me a bit and left me wanting a lot more. I didn't feel like I got all the answers I needed and the last chapter seemed to raise more questions than it answered. Still, the book had me hooked and I can definitely recommend it, I just wish the ending had been a bit less confusing.

Started interesting with a plot that could've been absolutely great but ended up feeling way too messed up, quite unrealistic and was in the end difficult to finish. The narrator made it somewhat worth it, though. He's absolutely amazing.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.
