Description

Meet the new neighbours. Whose side are you on?

When Gav and Lou move into the house next door, Sara spends days plucking up courage to say hello. The neighbours are glamorous, chaotic and just a little eccentric. They make the rest of Sara’s street seem dull by comparison.

When the hand of friendship is extended, Sara is delighted and flattered. Incredibly, Gav and Lou seem to see something in Sara and Neil that they admire too. In no time at all, the two couples are soulmates, sharing suppers, bottles of red wine and childcare, laughing and trading stories and secrets late into the night in one another’s houses.

And the more time Sara spends with Gav and Lou, the more she longs to make changes in her own life. But those changes will come at a price. Soon Gav and Lou will be asking things they’ve no right to ask of their neighbours, with shattering consequences for all of them.

Have you met The People at Number 9? A dark and delicious novel about envy, longing and betrayal in the suburbs.

Reader reviews

  • (2/5)
    I hated everyone in this novel except for Carol.
  • (4/5)
    This human drama set in a London suburb is as riveting as a crime novel. Excellent escapism without being lowbrow.
  • (1/5)
    There wasn’t much of a plot and then it seemed to end abruptly.
  • (5/5)
    SO good! I couldn’t stop listening to this!! The voice artist was fantastic as well! So talented!
  • (2/5)
    This was, in a nutshell, a book with very few interesting plot points and was basically about a family with poor boundaries. Pass.
  • (1/5)
    New bohemian, artistic family move next door and captivate Mr and especially Mrs normal. Story was rambling in parts, ludicrous in others (who gives their “friends” 8 grand at the drop of a hat, must have paid for the never ending supply of weed and wine they had, despite never seeming to do any paid work, Also, who yanks their children out of school to teach them at home even though they have no teaching qualification or experience without even a sniff of a visit from social services? ), and boringly obvious overall, never reaching any satisfactory conclusions. Characters were cliched and all thoroughly unlikeable. The ending was empty, unsatisfactory as if the author got as bored writing it as I was listening to it.
  • (2/5)
    I think the book was pretty well written, in that it fleshed out the majority of the characters. It was clear and I kept coming back to see how the story would end. The reason that I gave it 2 stars is that it really never went anywhere. It was a very dry story overall. I was always hoping for that thing and it just never came.
  • (5/5)
    Great characters, interesting commentary on suburban life..engrossing from the start
  • (2/5)
    The reader was fantastic so I was happy listening to it, but the book had very lit plot and was rather boring and a bit self-indulgent.

    My husband and I enjoyed listening to it together. A very interesting view on suburban life.
