Book Review — “The Family Upstairs” by Lisa Jewell

I’ve really debated with myself about this review. Did I hate the characters so much that I didn’t like the book? Not really. Did this book deserve a good rating because of it’s readability or a bad rating because every time I think of it — I feel very dark inside? Not really sure…. So let’s begin with the good points. Lisa Jewell is a great writer. You’ll pick up this book, and in spite of yourself, you won’t be able to put it down. That’s a “good book”, right? Well… let me get to the bad parts. EVERY ADULT CHARACTER (pretty much) IN THIS BOOK IS COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY HIDEOUS!!!!! Yes, you too, Justin and Sally! How you two could leave those kids with those total nut cases is beyond me!! And adult Henry?? Just UGH. More so, we have not — nor will we! — even touched upon the 4 adults living in the house or the COMPLETE IDIOCY of Martina and Henry Lamb, Sr. O.M.G. Those two deserved much worse than they got. And as for YOU, Birdie and David, I loathe you. Seriously. Additionally, I’m not even wasting my time talking about the domestic violence guy in France. So — that’s how I feel about this book! Enter at your own risk. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (I guess…)
