Quick Review: The Radleys

About the book (from
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 asks what we grow into when we grow up, and explores what we gain – and lose – when we deny our appetites

My Thoughts:
This was definitely a fun read! A very balanced tale that had plenty for everyone. The vampire family fight their instincts and try to "blend" in with the human world. They want the best for their children and think that by denying their cravings and refusing to live as vampires that they will be able to provide that.

They eventually start to lose themselves and become people they don't recognize. I loved that dynamic and I loved the humor that was laced throughout. As I stated, I believe that there is plenty to satisfy in this one!
