Top critical review

What a disappointment this was. I was really looking forward to reading it, and had read positive reviews. But this book was not written well. The actual writing was okay, but the execution of the story was sorely lacking. The characters were completely hollow - I didn't get to know them at all. There was a lot of 'telling' rather than 'showing', so the action scenes weren't interesting or gripping in any way. I hate to say this, but I found the book boring. The premise was good and it should have been a thrilling read, but it wasn't. Also, the title was a mistake. There were giant gaps where the couple next door weren't mentioned at all, so that was a strange choice.
