really liked it

I hugely recommend the audio book production read by John Glover. Really brought the elegant prose to life with an exaggerated passion that suited the material perfectly.

I found this story well-drawn and beautifully written, but ultimately extremely elusive. As much as spend time with this very peculiar family, we will never truly know them, and I suppose that is the point in many ways. Still, whilst I can appreciate this as a work of art, it is not a story that I feel will stay with me, because whilst interesting, these characters are not people one would necessarily revisit because of how thinly drawn they are.

I urge you to check out the audio book - John Glover's read is simply amazing and worth the price for his performance alone.
