Summary

Just who is this strange woman at number 19? And why is Esther so obsessed with her?  

Esther lost her husband, Julian, and her children, Harriet and Dexter, in a car accident and is struggling with her grief.    

Spurred on by her own loneliness and a need to make amends for not being able to save her own children, Esther takes it upon herself to watch the woman who lives at number 19.  

But when inexplicable incidents begin to happen in Esther’s house, she begins to fear for her safety. Meanwhile, over at number 19, the woman’s behaviour is becoming more explosive and unpredictable.  

As Esther starts to lose her grip on reality, her world begins to unravel.

Ugh, where to start...

This might have made a decent short story but instead it was painfully long and drawn out. Needless repetition and verbiage made it a chore to listen to. It was obvious what was going on from the first couple of chapters and I only made it to the end just to see if I was right (I was and so would you be). I ended up speeding up the narration to get to the end quicker.

The narrator sounded a lot older than the character was meant to be. In fact, the whole thing seemed quite old fashioned. The mention of mobile phones seeming anachronistic alongside the otherwise indistinguishable pop culture references. It felt like the writer hadn’t researched or stuck to any particular time frame.

Sadly, I cannot recommend this book.
