African Literature 9 kThe top at times I usually enjoy multiple points of view but it took me a while to get everyone straightWhile this novel didn t grip me as much as Our House did I still thought it was a decent read with aicker of an ending that "i didn t see comingi look forward to "didn t SEE COMINGI LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT THIS AUTHOR COMES comingI look forward to what this author comes with next I d like to thank Berkley Books for providing me with a copy of this novel All opinions are my own The development of the plot of this book unfolds at the breakneck pace of OJ s Bronco chase on the LA 405 freeway only it s not nearly as entertainingI always eep notes as I m reading a bookuotes pivotal moments etc I only had one note on this book upon completion and that waspage 113that s how long it took for something of the most miniscule bit of interesting to happen in this book and even that something was so cursory I nearly drowned in it s wakeThe best descriptive word that comes to mind for this story is LABORIOUS with a capital L for LAWD LET THIS BOOK END ALREADYI looooved the domestic cray cray of Our House by this author but this book was insipid domestic and about as cray as Cocoa Puffs 2 Stars because I thought the format was cleverly composed I received an ARC from via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Menacing topsy turvy brassyTHOSE PEOPLE by LOUISE CANDLISH is an outlandish eccentric and wacky tale that definitely amused and entertained this reader The fun here is deciphering who Those People are and seeing what lengths they will go to in order to protect their cushy neighborhood from those not so likeable new neighbors Hmmm or maybe it s the not so new residents LOUISE CANDLISH DELIVERS A VIVID ENTERTAINING AND STEADY PACED READ HERE a vivid entertaining and steady paced read here lots of unlikeable characters to either be entertained by or maybe a little disgusted with I chose to be entertained by them and couldn t get enough of their idiosyncrasiesThe mystery unfolds slowly from alternating perspectives as we meet the neighbors There is uite a huge cast of characters to eep track of which I did find a little bit confusing in Secrets of the TEAS® Exam Study Guide keeping them all straight and who belonged to whomI didn t really think there were any real surprises here but I did really enjoy the way this story was formatted Which definitely set a menacing and sinister tone here for a fun and entertaining read 35 Stars This was a Traveling Sisters Read and this book produced uite the awesome discussion Thank you so much to Elisha at Berkley Publishing and to Louise Candlish for gifting me a copy of this bookReview can also be found on our Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee Reading book blog NeighborsAren t they the worst Imagine living next to Those People Younow the ones who break down walls don t follow the rules park where they want play loud music etc They suck right But what about the neighbors who think it is their job to police the neighborhood and make it their mission to make their unruly neighbors fall in line This was slow all the way through for me Yes it looks at behavior and social class First impressions go a long way and the neighbors in this book really failed here I think most readers can relate to one time or another of having a neighbor or neighbors who was annoying or obnoxious in some way In this book readers are presented with their characters perspectives and their versions of what occurred but are they being truthful Try finding a likable character I dare you You may find one or two but in the end even they might let you downAlthough I did not enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed Our House said that I do believe this is a great book for book clubs There is a lot to discuss in this book and whether one enjoys this book or not there is a lot to discuss and stories of bad neighbors to shareThis was a Traveling Sisters Group readI received a copy of this book from Berkley Books and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions are my own Let it be Rising Above The Influence: A True Story about Alcohol, Drugs, and Recovery known that I am absolute trash for Domestic Drama from Louise CandlishShe has such anack for portraying the dark side of an otherwise mundane domestic landscape Additionally I really enjoy how she formats her stories The use of mixed me.
