Overall rating – 5 out of 5 stars.
I literally wrote about 4 lines of notes after reading this book, so my review is going to be a little chaotic…
Firstly, this book was bloody EXCELLENT. I didn’t see anything coming within this story, every step was out of the blue and I loved it – I was kept on my toes for the entire story. I particularly enjoyed with this how everything was a shock but by the time the book had ended it all slotted together perfectly and made sense.
Secondly, the ending was so incredibly well done. It brought a really good close to the story, and almost brought a happy? ending, or at least one that was conclusive and managed to answer all of my questions about the book that had inhabited my brain for so many days.
I will say that to begin with I was a bit confused, a cat who believes in God, a little girl who has no use of her legs, and Ted who hid himself away from the world… I did find it quite hard to keep up with what was going on, but not in a bad way. At no point did it make me want to put the book down, instead it made me want to keep reading to find out what was going on!
The Last House On Needless Street was just an absolute mind fuck of a book that stuck in my mind for days and I am so glad that I picked it up to read.
Until next time, Em xxx
