The book has on the front a very proud announcement saying it's recommended by the Richard and Judy book club. Firstly I'm worried that my friend is reading things on their recommendation but that's not for here. It takes time, and a bit of genuine effort to get into the flow of the book, but once you do it's truly hard to stop reading. I have to be honest, The Girl On The Landing isn't on top of my list of favourite books, but it's pretty damn close.

Paul Torday's third novel takes a risky but rewarding sidestep into modern Gothic, finds James Purdon. After the comic triumphs of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and The Irresistible Inheritance of Wilberforce, Paul Torday's third novel takes a risky but rewarding sidestep into modern Gothic. Elizabeth Gascoigne is dealing with a boring job she doesn't really need and an equally boring husband whose idea of a wild night is a tough crossword.

The tension builds and I just had to finish the book, but I thought the ending was an anti-climax as Elizabeth takes over the narrative and we are left dangling. Just what did happe.

Is this worth reading despite that?
