The Smell of Other People's Houses
Although this was a depressing book I did really enjoy it because it was well written. I thought it was ambitious that she wrote every chapter from a different view point but I didn't really like that very much as I would just start to understand what was happening when it changed again. However I can see that in writing several different characters that at least one would really interest the reader (for me it was Ruth and Hank). I also liked the end (I won't spoil it!) but it was a refreshing difference to the rest of the book.
I would give this book a 10|10 and would recommend it for anyone from 11 up!
