Publisher Description

From Mark Haddon, the bestselling author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, comes a dazzlingly inventive novel about modern family life.

Richard, a wealthy doctor, invites his estranged sister and her family to join his family for a week at a vacation home in the English countryside. Against the backdrop of a strange family gathering, Haddon skillfully weaves together the stories of eight very different people forced into close quarters. The Red House is a symphony of long-held grudges, fading dreams and rising hopes, tightly guarded secrets and illicit desires, painting a portrait of contemporary family life that is at once bittersweet, comic, and deeply felt.

Intresting

I thought that this book was great in the beginning but it slowly began to lose my interest near the end.

Hard to stick with

I found this book hard to stick with. The constant changes between voices and frequent segues to poetry or other quotations had me skipping ahead a lot.

Miserable

I buy and read 2-3 books a month and love most of them. I had to go back and write a review on this one in the hope of preventing someone else from wasting their money on it. It is horrific - a complete waste. Browse and buy elsewhere. Truly awful.
