"The ending is not predictable, you will be hooked until the last page." William D. Curnutt "Pastor Dan" TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE™ VOICE

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid 4 1/2 stars October 8, 2014

I enjoyed this book very much. This is the second book I've read where the main character suffers from OCD. I found the story fascinating. The progression of the character through this disease was palpable. I could feel her frustration and paralysis. I like how the story showed that there are no easy fixes when suffering from mental illness. I also enjoyed the David and Goliath story line, and the bravery it took for the main character to go public with her disease. The secondary story line of mystery/thriller had me interested and guessing. I felt that part of the story wasn't necessary to the book, but enjoyed it and hope it is a lead into the next novel in the series. Great job S. Z. Berg!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes real life problems are starnger than fiction February 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I love books like this one because I have found that life doesn't follow a plan or a map. I thought it was very well written, but didn't follow the stringent guide lines many try to impose. instead of a cookie cutter novel it is a strong original story that everyone should read.

Imagine waking up one day and feeling like a stranger had taken over your brain. Forcing you to do things you know make you look crazy. Imagine how that would alter your life and how others looked at you. How would you cope? Who would you tell? Imagine if no one believed you. Savannah Bloom lives an idyllic life in the small town of Saddlebrook. Working as a journalist in a town where nothing is out of the ordinary she writes human interest pieces on the quiet towns folk. Until the day she becomes the story. Driven by OCD everything in Savannah's life changed almost overnight. Using her journalist skills and the wonder of SmartAss.com to help her find answers, she fights to regain her free will. Will anyone listen to her? Or will she end up like her poor Aunt Martha, locked away and forgotten?

I enjoyed this book because Savannah is a very interesting character in a very unusual situation. To wake up one day and be compelled to do things you know are not normal is quite mind boggling. Her struggle to be believed, to find a working treatment and to regain her life takes you on a spiraling ride into one woman's mental disorder. Intertwined in her story are the wonderful stories of the town's people that she writes about. The author does a magnificent job of weaving all of their lives together and wrapping it around the main character.

Take a chance to be on the other side of the window looking in as Savannah's life unravels, her story will stay with you and make you look at those around you with a little more compassion and understanding, and maybe even a little more paranoia!

5.0 out of 5 stars unique plot- accurate fiction August 19, 2014

Is there such a thing? Accurate fiction? Being someone from the healthcare business, I found myself seeing from the other side of the fence, the patient's. The author gave an excellent account of what OCD patients went through everyday. How lost and misunderstood they were. I enjoy reading this book, drawn to the plot early on and the characters are down to earth. Fast paced summer read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fighting the Monster Within October 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The Other Side of the Window tells the fascinating story of a young woman who battles the debilitating effects of a psychological disorder. It is an absorbing tale, very well-written, fast moving, and extremely enjoyable.

The story centers on Savannah, a reporter for a small-town newspaper who has an obsessive-compulsive disorder. It is told from her viewpoint, often in the first person. It is difficult to write an entire book in this mode, but Berg succeeds. I cannot imagine that the story would have been nearly as effective or as entertaining if told in any other way.

I wish that I could describe the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorders to my psychology students half as well as Berg presents them in her story. People today use "OCD" much too loosely. They apply it to a person who wants the house to be in order or who wants some task to be performed in a certain way. Obsessive compulsive disorders are much more than this, and the author presents us with a vivid picture.

We watch Savannah, for example, as she repeatedly washes her hands, scrubs her body, opens doors with a paper towel, and consumes multiple glasses of wine, all to protect herself from germs. We see her perform actions in sets of threes. We see her standing in the ball field, repeatedly hitting the ball and running the bases because It insists that she do it. We see that Savannah is very aware that she has a disorder, and she desperately wishes that she could be different

Toward the end of the book, the author makes it clear that she does not think highly of either psychotherapists or pharmaceutical companies, and she proposes an unconventional theory for the origin of at least some psychological disorders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-drawn and compelling September 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The Other Side of the Window is a suspense-filled story about a young woman who, for some inexplicable reason, is suddenly experiencing symptoms of OCD. Savannah's struggle to overcome her compulsions while trying to maintain her professional life as a journalist are well drawn and compelling. Readers will be kept on the edge of their seats wondering if her stalker is a figment of her imagination or all too real, what dark truths are hiding in the small town and whether Savannah will finally be free of her torment.
