I absolutely hated this book. For around 60% of the book we are in the dark about a secret, and it’s not delicious suspense, it’s just annoying. The writing and character development are pedestrian, and the pacing is all wrong. On top of that no character is even slightly likable or sympathetic. The narrator does a decent job of conveying the snide natures of the characters but it still doesn’t make the listener like it any better. The final indignity is being subjected to the oh so tiresome and overplayed themes of rich=bad, female=victim compounded with the judgey British cliches of chastising anything modern. I considered asking for a refund on this one.

Reading The Party is like peeling back the layers of an onion with each reveal more disturbing than the last. It reads like an Ian McEwan novel. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
