My Review: 🌟
MEET THE NEIGHBOURS YOU’LL LOVE TO HATE Until Darren and Jodie move in, Lowland Way is a suburban paradise. Beautiful homes. Friendly neighbours. Kids playing out in the street. But Darren and Jodie don’t follow the rules and soon disputes over loud music and parking rights escalate to threats of violence. Then, early one Sunday, a horrific crime shocks the street. As the police go house-to-house, the residents close ranks and everyone’s story is the same: They did it. But there’s a problem. The police don’t agree. And the door they’re knocking on next is yours.
I have to be honest here: I REALLY struggled with this book.I wanted to like it. I really did. And even though I finished it and didn’t throw it out the window as a DNF, it was one that had me thinking “well, that was a complete waste of time”. And when it comes to books, that’s hard for me to say …
It was a very slow read, and there was nothing to hook the reader at all. It just kept going on and on and on.
The characters were extremely unlikable, and when I finally realised there was one character I liked, the plot twisted and she became a completely unrealistic character. It could have been the redeeming factor of this whole book had she been written differently.
It was simply a laborious read. I wouldn’t bother.
