Summary

Oracle Street, Norwich, has just been labelled by the press as 'The worst place to live in Norfolk this Christmas?' and morale is at an all-time low. In the past few weeks, presents have been going missing from residents' homes, and there are rumours going back and forth that maybe it's one of their own who's been doing the stealing.... 

You get all sorts on Oracle Street. There's Nelson House, the three floor council property, at the far end, where the tenants are mostly council tenants, but some of the flats have been bought up and are rented out to students/professionals. There's the Victorian Terraces along the main street where families private rent, and a few own their own homes. There are beautifully kept gardens. There are gardens full of old white goods. There is a 20 metre square 'park' with a slide and a duck on a spring for toddlers that rocks back and forth when you sit on it. Its face wore off years ago.   

One thing there's not often a lot of on Oracle Street is money. Another thing there's not a lot of is connection. Each flat, each house, mostly keeps to itself. Sometimes it seems like everybody's hiding something. Sometimes it seems like everybody's hiding full stop.

A unique Christmas listen

I struggled to tell the difference between the characters at the beginning of this book, but the more I listened I got into it. The story is a tale of several families on the same street but none of them are really friends. They're brought together as someone starts stealing from their houses.

I really enjoyed this, it's your typical Christmas novel, and it has good unforseen (well, to me at least!) twists within the story that gave it a very satisfying ending. Would definitely recommend this novel to everyone reading this as an alternative to the normal festive stories.
