Review: The New Neighbors by Simon Lelic

April 10, 2018

What if your perfect home turned out to be the scene of the perfect crime?


Londoners Jack and Syd moved into the house a year ago. It seemed like their dream home: tons of space, the perfect location, and a friendly owner who wanted a young couple to have it.


So when they made a grisly discovery in the attic, Jack and Syd chose to ignore it. That was a mistake.


Because someone has just been murdered. Right outside their back door.


And now the police are watching them...

*** Three Star Review ***


This book was really hard to get into. The writing style just didn't fit the book and was too sporadic for me to appreciate the story.


Overall, the story is a good story. It's just told in a way that is not only hard to follow (I suspect that was the intent), but it didn't keep my attention. I almost gave up. It drug on and on. I honestly thought it would never end.


If this story had been told in a more direct manner, I have a feeling I would have been over the moon for it. It's not a book I would likely recommend to many.
