Review

A refreshing alternative to much of the paranormal fodder out there. The Bookseller From one of Britain's finest young novelists comes a razor-sharp unpicking of adulthood and family life. In this moving, thrilling and extraordinary portrait of one unusual family, The Radleys asks what we grow into when we grow up, and explores what we gain - and lose - when we deny our appetites. http://readingteenagefiction.blogspot.com The Radleys is a wonderfully written book. It's a fun, original concept I haven't seen anywhere else. The ending wraps things up nicely, but for me I would love a sequel - now the secret is out and all the family is "in-the-know", I can just see the Radleys getting into all sorts of trouble! I really enjoyed this book and I loved the authors writing style, I will definitely be checking out Haig's backlist. Book Chick City Deliciously dark, horribly humorous and an interesting addition to the vampire canon, The Radleys is definitely worth a look (to be honest, any book that has a chapter heading of CSI:Transylvania was always going feature on my hit list). It's not what you might expect, in fact it is downright strange in places but as a fable on the trials of growing up and the dangers of forgetting said trials, it is an absolute winner so add it to your wish list and prepare to be blooded... -- Sya The Mountains of Instead The Radleys is a refreshing and original take on a vampire genre that has arguably become rather overworked of late, and the book's main theme of abstinence is perfect for these debt-ridden times. Using short, sharp paragraphs and sprinkled with delightful asides from the fictional Abstainer's Handbook, The Radleys is a coming of age story that will appeal to adults, both young and old...One of Matt Haig's strengths has always been characterization and his work always shows a sharp observational eye...The Radleys is a highly recommended book for adults of ages, though possibly not one for the Puritans out there. Fantasy Book Review Matt Haig's brilliantly British vampire novel The Radleys has restored my faith in the genre, hurrah!...there's really not much to dislike about this book. It's got everything really. Love, laughter, tears, lots of blood and a quick rundown of which celebrities are actually vampires (note: Jimi Hendrix is one). Great stuff. Writing from the Tub Matt Haig takes an original and witty approach to the supernatural genre in this quirky young adult novel...Cleverly balancing light and dark notes, this coming-of-age story with a difference is a refreshing alternative to the vampire theme. Booktrust Move over, Cullens! The Radleys are an average family living in the suburbs - they just happen to be vampires. As funny as it is scary! Bliss This family sucked me in and got a hold on me that didn't give. This vampire story will be unlike anything you have read before and one that you should give a chance, even if you aren't into vampires. Forget Forks. Bishopthorpe is the new town for vegetarians! Heaven, Hell and Purgatory Reality bites in a funny family affair...pointed, clever and witty. -- Kim Newman The Independent We should expect something different from the fare provided by Stephenie Meyer and her numerous imitators. And we will not be disappointed. The Irish Times It's satirical yet subtle, and I appreciated Haig's obvious love of the genre he's writing in...If you're looking for a vampire that isn't of the sparkly fall-in-love-with-me-now variety, I think this one's right up your street. Wondrous Reads Only two good books that emerged from the recent epidemic of literary bloodsucking brilliant The Guardian A deeply dark thriller with wittily barbed social comments that transcends vampire cliches Guardian

Book Description
