But nothing, it seems, will go to plan. As the passengers wearily search for rest, the house undergoes a strange transformation. One of their number (who is most definitely not a gentleman) makes it his business to join the birthday revels. Evening turns to stormy night, and a most unpleasant game threatens to blow respectability to smithereens: Smudge Torrington, the wayward youngest daughter of the house, decides that this is the perfect moment for her Great Undertaking.
The Uninvited Guests is the bewitching new novel from number-one best seller Sadie Jones. The prizewinning author of The Outcast triumphs in this frightening yet delicious drama of dark surprises - where social codes are uprooted and desire daringly trumps propriety - and all is alight with Edwardian wit and opulence.

I had read very good reviews of this book and looked forward to hearing it. I couldn't have been more disappointed! There just isn't anything in it that made me want to continue. I kept going thinking that it could only get better ... and it actually got worse. I think it was aimed at teens, but I don't know any teens who would enjoy this. The characters weren't even two-dimensional. The reader tried very hard but she was on a lost cause. I didn't manage the second part. It has gone into the 'Trashcan'.

I was excited to start listening to this book having read reviews and hearing about it from others. I was so disapointed, i found it slow and strange, i was never fully engrossed. I wasn't so much ghostly and creepy but more "odd". I listened to the end hoping for a big twist etc but found the ending so very very predictable.This review however may say more about me than the story and the silly characters, sorry.
