Mr Humphreys, Surbiton High School

The Smell of Other People's Houses

There has been a lot of hype surrounding this book, and I admit to have approached it with a degree of scepticism. Those initial doubts were blown away within the first few pages...

All I can say is, wow! A very impressively written and masterfully constructed story, with the multiple narrative voices all strong and convincing. The twists and turns will keep you reading, and it all builds up to a highly satisfying conclusion.

The shortlist is very strong this year, and I don't know if there is an early favourite, but I will not be surprised and will have no complaints if this scoops the prize!
