Chosen by Suzy
A 2005 novel by a Scottish author, which relays the consequences for a middle-class family when an uninvited visitor appears in their home while on holiday.
⚈ “I was really looking forward to doing this book for bookclub as I’d read such amazing reviews. I didn’t follow it easily and this has been a repeating theme with most other Ali Smith books I’ve since read (Hotel World being the exception). Unfortunately this is a reflection of my intellect rather than anything to do with the author! ” – Suzy
⚈ “The Accidental is unlike any book I have read before. At first I quite enjoyed discovering its unusual flow but sometimes it was almost too clever, making following the storyline difficult. Fantastically developed characters and a satisfying conclusion, though.” – Rachel
⚈ “Thoughts” – Nadine
