The Girl on the Landing

Posted by

The Girl on the Landing is written by Paul Torday who is probably best known for writing Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.  I’ve been wanting to read Salmon Fishing in the Yemen for a while so when I saw The Girl on the Landing in the Oxfam bookshop I thought I’d give it a go.

The story is about a couple who have quite a dull, boring life together but all that changes when they go away for a weekend to Ireland and Michael starts to change.  He becomes more fun and loving and Elizabeth starts to fall in love with him again.  Then everything changes.  I’m not going to tell you too much as I don’t want to spoil it for you!

The book is really easy to read and kept me hooked throughout so is undoubtedly worth a read.

  1. i thought this was a brilliant book and kept me hooked too. I won’t spoil the story either but I loved the way it seems to start off as a ghost story but has a very clever twist.
