Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the wake of their mother's death, disconnected siblings Angela and Richard come together with their families for a week in the English countryside. There, the eight family members find themselves lost, disoriented, or challenged by the family past and present. Narrator Maxwell Caulfield has the monumental task of capturing and juggling these different characters, and, unfortunately, doesn't rise to the task. While his narration is magisterial and crisp, and he captures the book's mood throughout, he unfortunately uses the same tone and projection for each character. This confuses listeners about which character is speaking and proves disorienting and distracting. A full cast might have better executed this audio edition. A Doubleday hardcover. (June)

Review

"A beautiful object that will grace any holiday home's unfixably wobbly bedside table. The cover feels like a cracked china plate, decorated with a clever re-working of the willow-pattern; like the contents, it is subtle and clever. Haddon writes superb books for children, teenagers and grown-ups, and gets every voice in this one dead right. He is also a master craftsman, so this complicated narrative moves with the speed and certainty of released, unhappy holidaymakers hitting the homeward road. So shove this in your holidaying bag. You may have made a mistake with the booking, but you won't with the book" -- Susan Jeffreys Independent "Mark Haddon is terrifyingly talented... The Red House is thoroughly engrossing and enjoyable entertainment" -- Angus Clarke The Times "A hugely enjoyable, sympathetic novel...a tremendous pleasure...we have been absorbed, entertained and moved" -- Kate Kellaway Observer "Rather like with Alan Ayckbourn's plays, what makes The Red House engaging is the quality of the writing. From the first page in which the train carrying Dominic and Angela's family "unzips the fields", there is a vigor to Haddon's prose which carries you along. I read it twice, both times with enjoyment" -- Amanda Craig Independent on Sunday "With writing as elegant and truthful as this, readers will wish to keep their copies close at hand to savour again" -- Michael Arditti Daily Mail
