The Uninvited Guests

The Uninvited Guests book review

Title: The Uninvited Guests
Author: Sadie Jones
First Published: 2012
My Rating: 2 of 5 stars (average rating on Goodreads: 2.98)

A weird read. And not in a good way. It seemed Sadie Jones couldn’t decide whether to write a mysterious and unique novel or a more traditional story. It somehow failed both: too traditional to be interesting and too weird to be really good. I found my attention drifting and I was bored throughout. It was absolutely forgettable. Literally; I finished it two weeks ago, and I have a hard time remembering exactly how it ended. And what’s worse: whilst reading, I didn’t care how it ended. The characters were so unlikeable and the story completely failed to move me.

I could see that there were parts that were meant to surprise and shock the reader. It just didn’t really work. It was merely unbelievable and strange. And a bit of a mess. I really don’t have much else to say about this book.
