The Woman Upstairs - Claire Messud I loved the anger of the first chapter; the rest of the book never quite lived up to this for me. I didn't find the story of how Nora came to be angry as interesting as the rage itself, and I would possibly have cared more about what she actually did following the events in the novel. The story itself felt oddly paced: very drawn-out at first, and then the ending felt rushed.
