The Red House: A Novel by Mark Haddon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I'm definitely a fan of this author (I absolutely loved "The Curious Incident...") However, it was hard for me to get used to the jilted, jumpy storytelling. I enjoyed the characters--their voices were distinct and descriptive. I would have been completely enthralled with this if I was able to keep with each character's POV longer. The premise was interesting though, and I thought the setting was perfect for exploring the individual's underlying personality traits. Wouldn't recommend for everyone, since it might be a tad confusing for some people.
