What I Read Wednesday – The Guest Room by Chris Bohjalian


This book will be released on January 5, 2016. I received a copy through NetGalley.

One decision, one moment, can change your life forever. For Richard, his decision was letting his younger brother’s friends use his house for a bachelor party. His moment was going upstairs with one of the ‘strippers’ to the guest room. Whether anything happened or not, his marriage is forever tainted. His life is forever tainted when the girls kill their guards in his house and flee.

This book explores what happens after such an event, such a scandal. How it affects his life, the other guys at the party, his wife, and his nine-year-old daughter. Richard’s life is forever linked to the young girl’s in the guest room and her complicated life.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author, and I’d definitely pick up another one. A bit slow in parts, the rest makes up for it by being a definite page turner. The ending was tragic and very unexpected, one that will stick with you for a while.
