I'm not sure how much I can say about this book without totally spoiling the plot for you, so forgive me if this review seems a bit woolly. This is a weirdly bonkers plot, not in a bad way, just in a "What on earth has happened?" kind of way. I mean, I would hope that this is far-fetched, but I'm not sure I'm convincing myself to be fair. There's the whole thing that happens to the family, then some shady backgrounds with a couple of the family members, and then, thrown into the mix is the early, traumatic life of the adopted daughter; I mean, they're certainly not a boring family!

What all this means then, is that I had no clue who was involved in current events or why. There were so many suspects and so many reasons why, that any one of them was quite likely to be behind it.

I have to say that I wasn't over-enamoured with Rob, I don't know why, but I didn't really warm to him very much. In fact I'm not sure who I did latch on to; maybe Wendy, the mother. I don't know why this lack of attachment occurred, there's usually a lynchpin but just not here for some reason.

I enjoyed the writing as a whole, it kept me enthralled, as well as guessing, for most of the book. I wasn't that convinced by the ending, which again comes back to the question of whether the plot is far-fetched. For my money it would have been a better ending at the house (which of course will make better sense when you've read it), I didn't really feel the need for a big-bow finish, and arguably the book does suffer a little for it.

That being said, I did enjoy All Fall Down. It definitely had a plot I can't remember seeing before, and as I've said, I was guessing for most of the book, which is always a good thing!
