I really love the cover that Steve C. Gilberts has done for this book. Great job.

The story is good. I really liked reading this one. Smooth writing, interesting plot, intriguing characters. I just followed along to see where this was all going to end up. I think the ending could have packed a little more punch, but it was still satisfying enough that I didn't feel cheated after reading 400 pages.

I checked out Christopher Ransom's web page and see he has written many other books -- I would definitely commit time to reading his other writing. ( )

While this book has a great start and a really impressive nicely tied up surprise ending that you won't see coming the middle does drag some but not enough to stop you from reading at a furious pace to see what happens. ( )

A PERFECT FAMILY

Mick and Amy Nash are an ordinary couple leading ordinary lives. And then, into the house next door move the Renders - beautiful, charming, perfect ... and not at all what they pretend to be.

AN EVIL SECRET

Too late Mick learns that something is deeply, darkly wrong with the neighbours. Who are these people? Where did they come from? And what are they hiding in the basement?

A SHOCKING TWIST ENDING

As death and darkness descend on the neighbourhood, only Mick can save his family and expose the horrifying truth about the people next door - a secret already hailed as the most electrifying twist ending in years.

My Thoughts:

I had given up on ‘The Birthing House’ as I thought it was hopeless ad possibly one of the worst books I had read. When one of my fellow book readers at work was given for her birthday ‘The People Next Door’ I did think well can it be as bad as that !

Well not as bad as, but not very good either. I really couldn’t understand the book very well and when it is tea break today at work I am hoping that my two fellow book readers who have both read it can explain it to me. I think I got the gist but I feel like I have missed something. This book has not inspired me to read anymore by this author. The book wasn’t scary at all and I feel like I have wasted a whole Sunday afternoon when I could have read something which I would have enjoyed.

Awful ! ( )

Yes I did guess the twist in general if not in detail. Eminently forgettable. ( )

Yes I did guess their secret and the twist wasn't that great. Nicely written, but could have been so much better. I do hate an unreliable narrator. ( )
