    Couldn't put it down!

    The flow of writing made it very hard to stop reading. Great story, enjoyed the different perspectives.

    A page turner

    Ng spins a wonderful tale that at first glance seems to focus on the mystery at hand, however the reader quickly learns that it's really about each of the five family members and their need to fit in and to be seen as special. It's about our dreams and what we think people want us to be and then finding out who we really are. A great read.

    Pay attention to the often overlooked

    I can totally understand why this book is getting a lot of hype, but it is not a book I will be recommending to anyone I know. The way it jumps from character to character overlooks the most compelling stories to focus on the heads of the household. There is perspective missing. And there are frequent instances of really obvious cliff hangers in the middle chapters. It felt like a lot of cheap "suspense" tricks were being used to keep me reading. I mean, they worked, but it made me feel real cheap. Stoked on the representation of mixed-race couples and the struggles of being a mixed-race kid, but the story delivery was flat.

    Enjoyed every reading moment.

    Celeste Ng is a breath of fresh air in the literary community. She brings all her characters to life in such a unique and oh, so, believable way. I do hope there is a new book in 2018.

    Loved it

    Great book that I couldn't put down! I tend to forget the story-line of my favourite books so I can't wait to read this one again!
