A unique read
I was immediately drawn to this book by its sinister cover and I wanted to read it straight away without even seeing what it was about. The bonus of it was that it was written by Nina Manning, whose other two books I have enjoyed, which just added even more to its appeal.
The plot for The House Mate appears pretty straightforward, but once you get into the story, it takes a more complex route which at times could be confusing and had me wondering what was going on and where it was heading, but once it was made clear, it made much more sense. it really has been very cleverly plotted and put together when looking back on it.
I always enjoyed Nina Manning’s writing and she does a great job of keeping you wanting to flick those pages. Her characters are always very well developed and each are brought to life through the pages. The main character in this story suffers from OCD and anxiety and Nina Manning has done such a great job in portraying these two crippling disorders.
In my opinion I think that The House Mate is Nina Manning’s best work to date. It is very unique and although not to everyone’s taste based on other feedback I have read, it is this uniqueness that makes it a stand out to me. It was a pleasure to read and review The House Mate and I look forward to seeing what Nina Manning comes up with for her readers next.
