Publisher's Summary

Could you hate your neighbour enough to plot to kill him?  

Until Darren Booth moves in at number 1, Lowland Way, the neighbourhood is a suburban paradise. But soon after his arrival, disputes over issues like loud music and parking rights escalate all too quickly to public rows and threats of violence. 

Then, early one Saturday, a horrific crime shocks the street. As the police go house to house, the residents close ranks and everyone’s story is the same: Booth did it. But there’s a problem. The police don't agree with them.

Neighbours from hell

Having read the brilliant Our House last year I was really looking forward to this new book by Louise Candlish. It deals with the subject we all dread – nightmare neighbours. The residents of Lowland Way live in a suburban paradise – a nice community minded area of London, with nice neighbours who all get on. Until Darren and his girlfriend Jodie move into the house on the corner. Then they all have to deal with his loud music day and night, his noisy home renovations, and the used car business he runs from his house. Until one day a horrific death shocks them all.

This is a slow burner, and although I didn’t enjoy it as much as Our House, it is still a really interesting story, the writing is superb and I would urge everyone to stick with it. There’s quite a big cast of characters to get your head around, and to be honest I don’t think there’s a likeable one amongst them! I’m quite glad I don’t live on Lowland Way, even though some of the houses sound fabulous. In the end I even felt sorry for Darren and Jodie. The setting is painted so well and you can imagine the gorgeous houses, and then the eyesore on the corner with the sound of power tools throughout the day and loud rock music into the early morning.

I listened to the Audible version and the narrator was just right for the book and made it even more enjoyable.

Awful narration

Good story but almost ruined by Tuppence Middleton’s regular and unbelievable mis-emphasis. I have lost count of the number of times she has completely misunderstood the sentence she’s reading. It would be comical if it wasn’t so annoying and distracting from the story.
If you’re too dim to understand the book, you shouldn’t be narrating it.
Louise Candlish is brilliant though - buy the book, and use your token on one that’s not ruined by Tuppence Middleton.

REALLY.....?! I wish noisy neighbours were all I worried about in life.

I really don’t know what the point of this book even was... it was the most middle class, 3rd world woe, moaning bit of nonsense I’ve ever read. I just kept thinking... REALLY... this is their biggest problem in life??! And the whole book was just the same thing over and over. No twist. Nothing exciting. And the ending... WHAT?! It made literally a joke out of persevering. It needed a few more chapters to tie it off. How the woman has a book deal I’ll honestly never understand... won’t be wasting my time with any of her other books

dull and pointless

Not sure why I struggled to the end. I guess I hoped something would happen and I'd find there was a point. Reading this was like listening to an annoying family member or friend moan on about something irrelevant and petty. Sorry but it left me anxious, drained and annoyed.

OK but long winded

Started well and was set up well. But it was too samey. Lots of repeated phrases and storylines (well it felt like it). I didn't like the characters and felt the whole story dragged and was long winded.

I guessed the ending.

I had listened to Our House (which was brilliant) but this was not up to that standard. Really slow and just not gripping.

Great book

I really like this book the only reason I dropped one star was that it was a little predictable but still enormously enjoyable

Not one likable character

All the main characters are spoilt and irritating beyond belief. I am hoping it was the writer's intention to hold a mirror up to middle class prejudices. However, I feel that the absence of a main character with any scruples or moral code, and the book being written from the point of view of these awful people left me feeling irritated and bored.
I enjoyed the chronological time hoping, but the story really wasn't that interesting to warrant this. The ending was a disappointing anticlimax to an already dull book.

Enjoyable suburbian social tale

Character driven enjoyable tale with twists and turns commenting on class and social hierarchy all set on a street we can all relate too.
