5.0 out of 5 stars Another 5* for Matt Haig, 29 Aug 2011
This review is from: The Radleys (Paperback)
Once again Matt Haig has not let me down. I absolutely loved The Last Family in England and The Possession of Mr Cave, but I was a little worried about this novel as I am not usually a fan of vampire fiction. However, this story is so excellently written with the skill and wit just like Matt's other novels and I can't imagine another author pulling it off so well.

The Radleys are a family of vampires that are trying to live a normal middle-class life in Bishopthorpe by abstaining from drinking blood and the vampire lifestyle. They listen to Radio 4 and have normal jobs, but when the daughter stops eating meat, things start to go wrong.

It's certainly a book that you want to try to read in one sitting (not something I can do as I am a slow reader) but it just makes you want to keep reading. This would also make a great film.

I can't wait for a follow-up.
