    The Home

    I really didn't enjoy it at all. I kept reading, hoping it would get better, but it didn't and the ending was ridiculous.

    Brilliant

    Fantastic story with some terrifying moments and a twist I did not see coming. It was really hard to read the diary entries about the children homes in the UK. The poor children, what a life with abuse and violent beatings. It made sense that growing up in such a home had an everlasting effect on the children. Highly recommended!

    An Uneven Thriller

    Spoiler alerts... This is an uneven thriller with some excellent bits and some melodrama. Wonderful concepts here not well executed. Mysterious double narrators unknown til end. Were orphanages in the seventies really splattered with blood?

    A dark drama/suspense novel

    The Home by Karen Osman is a dark suspense novel. Angela is twenty-seven years old and a solicitor in London. She was adopted by James and Rosemary from a children’s home when she was fourteen years old. Her father has pancreatic cancer and suggests to Angela that now is the time to look for her birth mother. He wants to be there to support her while she goes on this journey. Angela, Rosemary, James, and Evelyn are unprepared for what is about to happen. The apprehension builds as The Home progresses. The story is told from Angela, Rosemary and Evelyn’s point-of-view as well as diary entries of a girl growing up in a children’s home that begin in 1969. All three of the narrators are tied together by adoption and we get to see how it affected each of them. The diary entries allow us to see what it was like to grow up in a children’s home. Lies, abuse, and neglect are written about in the diary entries. The secrets unfold as the reader moves deeper into The Home. Be prepared for deception, abuse and betrayal. There are twists to surprise and shock readers. The Home is an unsettling story that will have you on the edge of your seat.
