I am not a big vampire guy and really don’t read that much of the genre. My saying anything about this being a typical vampire novel would be incorrect and impolite. What this novel is though, is just plain flat out
fun and a very good read. The Radleys try to be the every neighbor, the middle
of the road couple, the average family, but they are anything but that; they
are abstaining vampires. Fun, frivolity, family soap opera, fast paced action
are what is found in the pages penned by Matt Haig. Check it out:

“Meet the Radleys

Peter, Helen and their teenage children, Clara and Rowan, live in an English town. They are an everyday family, averagely dysfunctional, averagely content. But as their children have yet to find out, the Radleys have
a devastating secret

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 ask what we grow
into when we grow up, and explores what we gain – and lose – when we deny our

The novel for me was, well novel, right from the very beginning. The background information on vampires and abstaining was really cute and different. The whole direction the novel took was a departure from
anything I have read recently. Issues of all sorts were delved into and fleshed
out here in the Radleys: Family values, teen bullying, peer pressure,
selfishness, fidelity. Check me if I am wrong, but I thought this was a vampire

I had the pleasure of finishing this novel during the snowstorm that blew through here on Sunday. I don’t know if that elevated my mood while I read it or not, but the novel built  pressure right to the very end and then Matt
Haig tied everything up with a nice tight bow and left nothing dangling or
blowing in the wind. Would I suggest this novel to anyone, I am right now. The
Radleys rocks, I don’t hesitate to pass this around to my wife and children; it
is just that entertaining. Do not abstain from this novel; it could lead to
withdraw symptoms, blotchiness, skin irritation, low tolerance to sunlight,
fatigue and sleeplessness.
