Review: The Uninvited

The Uninvited
The Uninvited by Liz Jensen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There were a number of things I really liked about this book. First of all was the depth of the lead character who had Asperger’s syndrome. The author had a very good insight of this condition and used this as part of her narrative, in fact it was central to the character and his setting.
The suspense and build up was also excellent – at the start we are given just enough hints of something bigger and these build through the story, making you want to read on and learn about the bigger picture.
In common with other authors, the ending isn’t what I would have hoped for and for that reason I gave four stars rather than five. I felt like the ending was a little bit of a cop-out but then that’s because I like clean, happy and resolved endings and not open ended or fuzzy ones like this.
I would still recommend this book to others – I enjoyed reading it and finished it in a relatively short amount of time.
