So very very weird. I should be used to that with this writer, but it still threw me and I stalled reading the book and then picked it up again to get through the weird parts hoping there would be sense in there. There was, but things were confusing. Now I understand what was happening, it makes sense to present it that way. Stuff did trigger my suspicions though and I noted enough weird bits that I finally got what was really happening it’s multiple-personalities or Dissociative identity disorder aka DID. First it was Ted calling Lauren and Olivia kitten. Then it was Ted and Olivia describing the rug feeling like soft pills - both of them? That’s weird. Then T called the cat Lauren and sometimes Olivia. Lauren was the biggest oddity of them all, but now I understand why - she was the one who bore the brunt of her mother’s abuse. She bit and clawed and screamed and seemed really unhinged, then relatively normal. Relatively. For a person who can ride a bike but not walk. Who seems crafty, but doesn’t go to school.

And what was with the italics in Olivia’s narrative - it took me a while to realize those were the parts she was recording. A cat who can work a tape recorder? Then Ted was using it. And Lauren, too. That was too much. They all had to be one person. In retrospect I should have caught the nesting dolls, too, but I didn’t until the end. When Olivia would break things and then they’d be whole again, repaired and in their places, that threw me. Were they all just crazy? In the end it made sense, sort of. The house itself was a construction of Ted’s fractured mind. He could go into to it and arrange it in any way he liked. That’s why the stupid rug kept changing color. And don’t even bring up the old freezer. Olivia’s “crate”. Ugh.

The whole Mommy’s Little Psychopath thing was creepy and I knew there had to be more. Ted’s weekend place and the buried gods were too weird and had to mean more. Why didn’t I suspect her? Getting fired from her job with kids. All the other kids going missing by the lake? Setting up Ted as Lulu’s kidnapper with Dee in hot pursuit was a nice distraction and worked to shift suspicion off mom. And Dee, too, escaped my suspicion, but I should have realized her guilt could drive her to shift her blame to someone else. Though the kid was taken and killed, Dee wasn’t telling everything.
Overall pretty well done and chilling. Reasonably satisfying. ( )

THE LAST HOUSE ON NEEDLESS STREET by Catriona Ward from @tornightfire is a deeply unsettling work of psychological horror and I couldn’t put it down. Read it in 2 sittings. I felt I had a pretty good idea where the story was going, but Ward pulls the carpet out from under the reader’s feet about a dozen times by the end of the book. So, while I was partially right, the story went so much deeper than I was expecting. An excellent reading experience. I’ll definitely be looking for more of Ward’s books. ( )

A creeping, unexpected, and original book. I was gripped from the first pages and I could not put it down. We follow a woman who has become obsessed with finding her little sister's abductor, though many years have passed. There's also a man living in a boarded up house, but he's not alone. We follow their lives in the present and past, getting some insight from family members and other residents of the house, and watch their lives collide. Spectacularly. ( )

The Last House on Needless Street is a very dark, atmospheric and disturbing tale about a boarded-up house at the end of Needless Street whose inhabitants include a man who drinks quite a bit, an angry teenage girl who is a recluse, and a cat that seems to have a religious side.

I really don't know how to describe this book without giving anything away so I am not going to even try. It should be enough to know that Stephen King and Joe Hill think it is a fantastic book and the majority of reviewers seem to be equally enthused.

I had absolutely no idea what was going on or who fit in where but everything became clear as I progressed through the novel. I found the story to be riveting and unexpectedly touching. The book is one of those spine chilling psychological thrillers that end up being more than they appear to be at first glance. I highly recommend this one. The writing is top notch, captivating, and will keep you up reading to the very end. ( )

Wow! I spent the first half of this book trying to figure out exactly what was going on and I had plenty of guesses. I was wrong on almost every count. My head was spinning with all of the twists and turns and I couldn’t stop listening. I am so glad that I took a chance and decided to give this book a try.

This story is told from three different points of view. Ted, his cat Olivia, his daughter Lauren, and their new neighbor Dee. I have to say that the cat was my favorite of the group. Years ago, Ted was suspected of having some involvement in the disappearance of a little girl. That girl’s sister wants to see what Ted might know so she moves into the house next door. I wanted to know more about Ted, his housemates, and just what he might have done in his past. This was one of those books where you knew that there was more going on than it seemed.

Christopher Ragland did a phenomenal job with the narration of this book. I believe that this was my first experience listening to his work but I would say that I am a new fan. The voices that he used for each of the characters were distinctive and fit the personality of the characters perfectly. He added a lot of emotion and excitement into his reading which helped to bring the story to life.

I would recommend this book to others. I think that this is one of those books that it is best to go in as blindly as possible so I have kept my review brief. I look forward to reading my of Catriona Ward’s work in the future.

I received a digital review copy of this book and audiobook from Macmillan-Tor/Forge and Macmillan Audio via NetGalley. ( )
