  1. Comment from Aileen Arthur:

    I found ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ original, thought provoking in parts and well written.

    The complex family dynamics were interesting and I enjoyed reading about Pearl’s connection with each Richardson child, how Izzy was drawn to Mia and the mother/daughter relationships. The custody story was heartbreaking and I felt for the judge who had to make an impossible decision. I found some of Mia’s back story too unrealistic, didn’t really warm to any of the characters and thought the ending was rushed.

    Although I enjoyed this book, I wasn’t completely gripped. Therefore, I would give this 7 out of 10.
