The Other Side of The Wall

The Other Side of The Wall is the debut novel from Irish writer and award winning blogger, Andrea Mara, who runs Office Mum.

This is a book I was very excited to read, mainly because I ‘know’ Andrea via the blogging community, we’re Facebook pals and we’ve spoken on the phone so that’s as good as a ‘real life’ meet isn’t it? Of course it is.

With all that in mind, comes the fear! What if I don’t like the book? I can’t admit that surely……

I needn’t have worried. I absolutely loved it, the twists & turns were outstanding. I found myself thinking about the characters when the book wasn’t in my hands, I needed to know more. It’s a hard book to put down once you start and I love that!

The Other Side Of The Wall: A Gripping Psychological Thriller by [Mara, Andrea]

There’s something up with the people next door.

Sylvia has returned to work in her stressful role within the financial sector following her maternity leave. She’s exhausted and suffering from sleep deprivation. When she ‘sees’ a child lying face down in the pond in her new neighbour’s garden she’s not sure if lack of sleep is playing with or mind or if it’s real.

However, as time goes on she becomes increasingly uneasy about the house next door, she hears mysterious noises, her daughter wakes from a dream convinced a monster was standing at the end of her bed. Has someone been in their house too?

Sam, his wife Kate  and their sons have moved in next door to Sylvia. While Sam does some work to the house Kate  and the boys are spending the Summer in Galway with her mother. Sam proves himself to be quite the helpful neighbour leaving Sylvia even more confused.

Is work proving too much? Is sleep deprivation the root of it all? Do we really know our neighbours? What is going on, on the other side of the wall?

  2. Nicola thank you so much for this review – I think the fear you mention was strong among lots of readers who know me in real life – I could feel the relief in the messages when they realised they liked the book! I really appreciate you taking the time to review the book, and have a link up now on my own blog review page plus it’s going on Amazon – thank you!!

    1. You’re very welcome. I love a book that leaves me thinking about the characters long after I’ve finished and this was one of those. I can’t wait for more!
