    Like obsessively desiring someone for months only to find they re a terrible kisser and walking away, stunned and disappointed, as you wipe their saliva off your face with your sleeve.

    EXCERPT Perrine Ingrey dropped Malachy Dodd out of a window She wanted to kill him and she succeeded Later, no one believed her when she screamed I didn t do it Both of their families, the Ingreys and the Dodds, knew that Perrine and Malachy had been in a room upstairs together with no one else around ABOUT THIS BOOK Justine thought she knew who she was, until an anonymous caller seemed to know betterAfter fleeing London and a career that nearly destroyed her, Justine Merrison plans to spend her days doing as little as possible But soon after the move, her daughter Ellen starts to seem strangely withdrawn Checking Ellen s homework one day, Justine finds herself reading a chillingly articulate story about a series of sinister murders committed at the family s new house Can Ellen really have made all this up, as she claims Why would she invent something so grotesque, set it in her own home and name one of the characters after herself When Justine discovers that Ellen has probably also invented her best friend at school, who appears not to be known to any of the teachers, Justine s alarm turns to panic.Then the anonymous phone calls start a stranger, making accusat...

    I should probably preface this review by saying that I ve read a couple of Sophie Hannah s books in the past and quite enjoyed them.This one started off OK a family leaving London to live in South Devon, excited about their new life, and an interesting deja vu moment for the mother with regards to a random house she spots from the road.Unfortunately, for me it was downhill all the way after the start The actions and behaviour of the characters were so far fetched, and the storyline so increasingly unbelievable, that I found myself actually laughing out loud with incredulity at some points It was so far removed from reality that it almost read like a farce the final 30 or so pages in particular.A couple of examples 1 A pupil s parent forces her way into the school past the Head Teacher s PA, using the words get the f k out of my way and nothing is done about it or e...

    A standalone novel from Sophie Hannah and as I just said on Twitter, unravelling her mysteries is akin to searching for a particular needle in a pile of identical needles It just ain t happening.So we meet Justine then, moving to the country with her family, having left a high powered job behind, she is determined to do nothing The only thing she wants to do is tell anyone that will listen that she does nothing But a strange event on the way to their new home, coupled with some disturbing phone calls and adding in some rather odd behaviour from her daughter and Justine finds herself having to do quite a lot after all.There are two strands to the tale Justine s side and a fictional story written by her daughter that is so gripping you may find yourself wanting to read that than the other But Sophie Hannah does nothing without good reason, so you sense that this essay is going to be important but how, why and what the blinking nora is going on at that school you ll have no idea I know You ll just have to read it.Superbly crafted to keep you metaphorically chasing your own tail, whilst I was not reading this book I found myself constantly going back to it in my head, trying to come up with some reason why everything that was happening was happening It drove me quietly insane.Ms Hannah writes with sharp witty dialogue and a dark ironic humour that is completely dastardly you can t escape all you can do is keep going hoping that the fog will clear and daylig...

    Sophie Hannah once again triumphs as the queen of quirkiness and off beat psychological crime in A Game For All The Family.It all starts with a family relocating from London to a posh huge house in Devon Justine Merrison, her daughter Ellen and husband Alex find themselves in the perfect location Strange things start happening, like abusive phone calls to Justine and Ellen becoming obsessed with a boy, who according to her school does not exist What on earth is going on Justine is determined to get to the bottom of all of this.At the same time, we have a story within a story This is written by Ellen and we are slowly drip fed its contents The Bascom family are an odd group of characters, who just grow in oddness over time They define the word odd Soon added to the mix is a touch of murder and intrigue.Sophie Hannah is just clever at storytelling She spins such a tale, that you don t know what is real and what is made up and bafflement ensues However at the same time, you are joining the dots and playing the game I really don t know how she does it.This is one book you have to read at leisure, to appreciate the dark humour and the strange twists and turns It all does come together beautifully at the end So a little patience is needed, when the strange...

    Never before have I seriously considered abandoning a book with only 20 pages to go but here, it was a fight to keep this thing in my hands It begins well enough, because the beginning is relatively sane A woman moves her family to the country to begin a new life Weird things happen, including some threatening phone calls Then the story begins to go downhill.Hannah sadly choses to include a B line about a story the teenage girl is writing Then, she makes the disastrous decision to blend the two plot lines and the result is almost unreadable It is certainly silly and incomprehensible The last 40 pages of the book are her desperate attempt to make sense of it all and she fails miserably This is just dumb and annoying It is like the worst of M Night S...

    This is a Bernadette book I loved it to pieces but I m afraid that practically everyone else in my entire life will think it s insufferable pap I fear that if I recommend it to anyone, I will have to read lukewarm to scalding reviews on this book that I ve adopted forever into my own heart I will therefore NOT recommend that you read this book, but I will say that I foun...

    2.5 stars actually, like stated previously, mystery books are always made or destroyed by their conclusions, and this one disappointed me We never get a clear ending, I m still not sure what happened towards the end, it felt like the ending was forced and rushed This books started good and it did a good job of world building up to 3 4 of the book but then it all goes south The characters start acting completely different from how t...

    RATING 2 STARS2015 UK and 2016 North America William Morrow For some reason Justine and her family husband and daughter are moving to another city, and she is excited to not be working As we move a few chapters into the book, we find out that Justine s daughter, Ellen is devastated that her friend that no one knew about George has been expelled Also, Ellen has been working day and night on a short story assignment from school Justine decides to visit the principal and finds out that George doesn t exist So what does this mean Yes, what does this mean I read FOUR HUNDRED and SIXTY FOUR pages and I have no clue what happened other than implausible fantasy or crazy Wonderland stuff I can t even review this book because I don t know what is a spoiler The positive is that Hannah writes well After reading reviews on this book which are mixed I think I want to try Hannah s series Spilling CID before mak...

    My View Unfortunately this was not a book that I particularly enjoyed in fact I had to force myself to finish reading it, ever the optimist thinking which each page I read it might redeem itself, it didn t I loved the premise and the introduction was brilliant a hint of mystery that needs unravelling, Deja vu perhaps, a little bit eerie However I was unable to suspend my disbelief and g...
