After hearing Mark Haddon interviewed on NPR, I looked forward to hearing this book. My hopes were high for a slam-dunk repeat of his Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, but they were dashed. Maybe Curious Incident was just too hard an act to follow. The plot of Red House is the mechanism in which the secrets of a family are revealed. And yes, there were some redemptions and some insights, it wasn't enough to give it more stars
I could not stay focused on this story. It was like trying to listen to the insane internal ramblins of several people all at once. UGH! To bad because I am a big fan of "The curious incident of the dog in the night" by Mark Haddon and i was so looking forward to another story by him.
