    The set-up of Mark Haddon's brilliant new novel is simple: Richard, a wealthy doctor, invites his estranged sister Angela and her family to join his for a week at a vacation home in the English countryside. Richard has just re-married and inherited a willful stepdaughter in the process; Angela has a feckless husband and three children who sometimes seem alien to her. The stage is set for seven days of resentment and guilt, a staple of family gatherings the world over.

    Sheryl says: "Great Listen but not for everyone."
    "Not as good as Curious Incident"

    Story

    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
