REVIEW ☆ JIMFORD.CO.UK ´ Louise Candlish

Our House

R house she is completely blind sided Trinity Avenue has been her family’s home for years Where are all her belongings How could this have happened Desperately calling her ex husband Bram who owns the house with her Fi discovers he has disappearedFor richer for poor I m going to keep this one short and sweet because I ve found I don t have much to say that hasn t been said already This wasn t a bad read the cover is inviting the premise is brilliant and there was even a nice twist thrown in so I did enjoy this overall My main issue was that the middle portion of the story felt bogged down It could just be that I was in a funk when I picked this up and needed something a little fast paced for the moment but I felt the narrative was repetitive and that we were reading the same scenes again and again which caused me to struggle for a bit Overall the majority has raved about this one and I think it s worth picking up to decide if you enjoy it for yourself And by golly that cover is uite stunning I received a review copy via the publisher

On a bright January morning in the London suburbs a family moves into the house they’ve just bought in Trinity AvenueNothing strange about that Except it is your house And you didn’t sell itFor better for worseWhen Fi arrives home to find a removals van outside he Oh my God it s been a long time since I ve suffered through a book that made me want to just BE DONE WITH IT ALREADY But this book Our House by Louise Candlish just seemed to just go on and ON Seriously there was NO reason for this book to be 400 pages There were way too many asides throughout this novel which slowed the pace greatly and contributed to the superfluous word count Not to mention those peanut gallery comments from the viewers of the crime podcast that Fiona Lawson is telling her story to which allows for the author Louise Candlish to tell Fiona s story under the guise of recounting her story to these podcast listeners really burnt my biscuit They were so annoying ridiculous and distracting that I trained myself to skip them entirely whenever I encountered them Though it is a genre I tend to enjoy for the most part see my reviews of Ruth Ware and Fiona Barton this novel was everything that I hate in British cozy thrillers centered around a meek woman who s gullible and made a victim as she tries to take back the power in the end It also was not very well written uite honestly Candlish has obviously never heard of Hemingway s Iceberg Theory because for this being a thriller she certainly didn t trust her reader to come to any conclusions on their own which really took all of the bite and fun out of reading this book for me I recently joined a Twitter discussion where a very outspoken literary agent was asserting that reviewers should NEVER tag an author with a bad review because it s rude and because these authors have already had countless people critiuing them and professional editors editing them This by the way was rather self righteously stated as though literary agents and editors know best and as though their stamp of approval a good book makes As a writer former lit agent and former publishing intern and current book reviewer I can confidently assert in response that this is not necessarily the caseHere you ll find a fantastic example of a book that needs further editing Literally my mind started wandering by page 60 as I started calculating how many paragraphs of text I d just written that really could have been removed from my life altogetherAll in all the premise of Louise Candlish s Our House is phenomenal the execution is mediocre if not terrible in parts and the aside bits nearly drove me mad If you re looking for a streamlined heart pounding thrill of a ride don t waste your time with this one I really don t have much else to say about this book because I ve already turned my mind to finding my next book which will have to be GREAT to wash away the annoyance I ve built up from pushing through this oneI have a friend who read my reviews and once told me it d be SO hilarious if I just wrote the word TRASH as a book review for the next truly terrible book I encounter and then just dropped the mike I won t do that here but there were parts where I was honestly tempted 2 stars for premise and premise alone and maybe even because I fancy the cover it s brilliant I received an advance read physical copy of this book from the publisher Berkley in exchange for an honest reviewFOLLOW ME HEREGoodreads Twitter Instagram Get a Copy of My Book Book Editing Author Coaching Submit Your Book to Me
