    I think at some point in our lives we have all experienced bad neighbours, whether they play their music too loud or just plain annoy you, they are always there With The Wonderful Demise of Benjamin Arnold Guppy , Gina Collia Suzuki has created the most loathsome of characters I have ever had the pleasure to read, the formidable Mr and Mrs Guppy, who despite their age control a whole neighbourhood and daily harass their new neighbours, Roy and Alex Leah Alex s is the narrator of the story , t I think at some point in our lives we have all experienced bad neighbours, whether they play their music too loud or just plain annoy you, they are always there With The Wonderful Demise of Benjamin Arnold Guppy , Gina Collia Suzuki has created the most loathsome of characters I have ever had the pleasure to read, the formidable Mr and Mrs Guppy, who despite their age control a whole neighbourhood and daily harass their new neighbours, Roy and Alex Leah Alex s is the narrator of the story , the reason for the harassment Well Roy and Alex are just not Ben and Pat Guppy s, type of people.I really enjoyed The Wonderful Demise of Benjamin Arnold Guppy, Gina Collia Suzuki description of them and their various antics to get rid of The Leahs were hysterically funny, I took pleasure when their antics went wrong because they were so horrible Gina Collia Suzuki does an excellent job of highlighting how bad The Guppies are and also explores the feelings of the Leahs well, the long term effects of having such bad neighbours,I was amazed how the Leahs could just ignore the couple despite The Guppies endless attempts to extort money from them.Pat and Ben Guppy are mean, they are cruel, they are neighbours from hell and Gina Collia Suzuki has written them well and very realistically I know at certain points in the story, I was appalled by their actions A wonderfully dark read, highly recommended It will make youaware of your neighbours

    This book has a funny definitely dark humor premise to it, and I liked the narrative at the beginning, but I guess my main problem with it is it never gave me a character to like or even identify with The Guppys are ONLY bad, and there are very few people who are so one sided like that I wanted to know WHY they were the way they were, and maybe even sympathize with them a little bit, but then I guess the murder may have bothered meThe book felt too much like one long rationalization f This book has a funny definitely dark humor premise to it, and I liked the narrative at the beginning, but I guess my main problem with it is it never gave me a character to like or even identify with The Guppys are ONLY bad, and there are very few people who are so one sided like that I wanted to know WHY they were the way they were, and maybe even sympathize with them a little bit, but then I guess the murder may have bothered meThe book felt too much like one long rationalization for offing someone, and I had a hard time liking the narrator You never really get to know her or her husband either, except how she interacts with the neighbors The two stars are for the parts and situations that were funny, though
