Interesting but Disturbing...!

The author has made an excellent job of narrating her own novel. The main protagonist of The Hostile is a young schoolgirl, Serena, on the cusp of womanhood. She is a member of a large dysfunctional Manchester family where the father and mother have never worked and spend most of their days floating on a cloud of cannabis. When Serena realises she can communicate with a demonic force trapped in a ceramic tile in her favourite bathroom all hell breaks loose. The novel takes the listener on a journey of mayhem when Serena's unguarded comments are taken literally by the demonic entity. Well worth a listen.

I received a courtesy version of The Hostile in return for a fair and unbiased review.
