Rebecca’s August Recommendation

The Uninvited Guests by Sadie Jones

“I requested this book on a whim when I read about it on an NPR Critics List titled “Laughing Matters: Five Funny Books With Substance“, and I was certainly glad that I did! First of all, you should click on the link to this list to see the rest of the books, because if they are all as awesome as this book was, then you’ll have something to read for the next two months.  I loved The Uninvited Guests. Part English comedy of manners, part supernatural ghost story, the author draws you in with her lyrical and engaging writing and refuses to let you go.  Some of my favorite elements of this book: A horse trapped in a little girl’s bedroom; disgruntled train wreck ‘survivors’ eating a birthday dinner; a charismatic stranger with a penchant for chaos.”
