Little Fires Everywhere is a psychological mystery- much too slow burning to call a thriller- set in the suburb of Shaker Heights, Cleveland, where conformity is highly prized. Family dynamics, secrets, betrayal, and class differences are key elements of this novel. My interest did start to wane partway through, and though there are plenty of quite vivid characters I just didn’t find many of them to be particularly likeable, nor did I understand the choices they made, which made for some frustrating reading; however the story strands were intriguing enough to pull me through.
