The Smell of Other People's Houses

The smell of other people's houses had a tragic and very well written beginning. Furthermore, the whole book was full of emotional moments as you indulge yourself in all the different lives of the main characters. While the author made it easy to predict how things would end up there were still moments where you can hardly restrain yourself from gasping, crying and sometimes just smiling. I thought that the plot moved at a good speed that meant you were constantly interested however sometimes it was hard to keep track of what happened to which person and whose perspective you were reading from. I think this book shows us the difficulty of having a family which has fallen apart and the author has used an appropriate style of writing which cleverly changes slightly between each point of view. . Overall, I would definitely recommend this fantastic book.
