Five stars for the beginning of the book, where we meet Anna Fox and discover she is housebound because of a sudden agoraphobia after a traumatic incident almost a year earlier. She keeps herself entertained by watching old black & white movies and spying on her neighbors. We gradually learn more details about her life and her condition. Then we realize she may not be a reliable narrator. Should we trust what she says?
I was so caught up in her story in the beginning and the suspense of what would happen next, or what happened next in the story of her past that led her to this current state, that I just did not want to put the book down!
Aaaaaaand then it went off the rails... Yes, on a crazy train! Too bad.
(Now it'll be a movie that will probably REALLY make a farce out of it, a la Gone Girl.)

Very good. All sorts of twists and turns so as soon as I figured out one bit another confusion came along. I kept expecting it to lose momentum but it never did.
