A TV in the guest room is much appreciated. He is straightforward about what happens and what these men think after it goes terribly wrong.
The center of the book is Richard Chapman, who has a serious crisis of conscience as well as a plain-old crisis after the horrific events. But what's probably most important about this book is the choice Bohjalian makes to give voice to one of the women at the bachelor party who's hired as the "entertainment.
What I wouldn't expect is to see his story in parallel with the story of a woman whose life has been destroyed to such a degree that it is hard to comprehend as a reader.
That is a powerful thing, and that Bohjalian isn't afraid to tell Chapman's story honestly even while he gives us a hefty dose of perspective is hugely appreciated.
There are plenty of white men telling stories about white men, so this upheaval of the traditional approach is very, very welcome.
View all 3 comments. Veteran writer Chris Bohjalian has an appreciation for story and character, and he combines a ripped-from-the-headlines topic with a sympathetic family drama.
Wealthy investment banker Richard Chapman has been happily married to Kristin, and their nine-year-old daughter, Melissa, is the light of their lives.
Kristin teaches at the upscale private school near where they live in Bronxville. Solid marriage. Happy family. But, what happens when a tragedy of consequences hits home?
Well, the party goes awry; two Russian bodyguards are killed by the so-called strippers, who turn out to be sex slaves, and possibly underage.
Then they fled. This is how it all begins, and the fallout to family is the crux of the story. The narration primarily alternates between the Chapman family members and Alexandra, one of the two sex slaves that got away.
We learn of her family history, as well as follow her and Sonja, the other fugitive from this mess. Her personal story has its own pile-up of tragedies.
The author humanized Alexandra, but her English was too exceptional for someone in this country only three weeks, with little formal education.
It may seem a small complaint, but it was distracting, and made it more difficult to suspend disbelief. Between home and school, there was no escape from the sordid story.
As the family tries to mend, and find its way back to each other, the consequences of actions taken become more heightened. It was too abrupt a change of heart, and in the throes of a dangerous event, seemed incredulous.
The story could also have been paced a bit better. There were some irrelevant digressions—and details of a walk-on character during the denouement were immaterial, and seemed placed to keep us in suspense.
And a lot of the content was repetitive. Unfortunately, the thriller aspects seemed derivative to me. But I was able to finish, for wanting to know how this quick read all turned out.
Great book! Ok, so some may not like the topic of sex trafficking, but if you can get past that, then this is a fast paced book that will suck you in and keep you reading until the end!
Maybe closer to 3. I've said this before, so again, I think Chris Bohjalian is an amazing writer of the female psyche.
I also know that all things Armenian are extremely important to him. If there are young women really, "girls" in Armenia being kidnapped and sold into sex slavery, Chris is the guy to write about it.
He crafted a very tragic and interesting story of a bachelor party gone horribly wrong when the hired strippers sex slaves kill their handlers at the p Maybe closer to 3.
He crafted a very tragic and interesting story of a bachelor party gone horribly wrong when the hired strippers sex slaves kill their handlers at the party host's upper middle class suburban home.
The consequences to the men in attendance were many, especially the host. The story of the girls brought to America for these parties seemed at times to take second place in importance, and that really bothered me.
I would have liked to know more about them and other such victims. I wish there had been an author's note at the end to expand more on the sex slave issue.
And the voice of the girl narrating her story was so annoying, maybe I tuned it out myself without even realizing it. This is the first book I have ever read by Chris Bohjalian.
In fact, I had never really heard of him before. Which is quite surprising considering how much I read, and the fact that he has written almost 20 novels.
So this book is primarily about the sex slave trade, and every second chapter is told from the perspective of a girl who is a sex slave.
And the story she tells of her life is so unbelievably sad. And the people who engage in this business are so despicable, it's enough to make you sic This is the first book I have ever read by Chris Bohjalian.
And the people who engage in this business are so despicable, it's enough to make you sick. Basically the story starts out at the main characters house, where he is having a bachelor party for his younger brother.
It has been arranged for these two "strippers" to be there, along with their two guards. Soon actual sex starts happening and then, almost out of nowhere, mayhem ensues.
The rest of the book is about the lives of the various characters, and what happens to them, due to the ramifications of what happened at this party.
The writing is quite good and there is definitely enough going on to maintain your interest, but I have to say it's a pretty depressing book in general, and it pretty well stays that way until the very end.
So if you're looking for a book to lift your spirits, this is absolutely not the right one. By the way, this is a new endeavor for me, trying to write a review for almost every book I read.
I'm not really very good at it, but the main thing I'm trying to avoid is giving away very much of the plot. I hate it when you read a review and it tells you almost the whole story.
That's why i read books, to find out the story. So, for example instead of describing the main event at the bachelor party in this book, I said "mayhem ensued".
That could be anything. And in order to find out, you have to read the book for yourself. View all 10 comments.
Feb 06, Erin Dunn rated it it was amazing. This is the second book I've read by Chris Bohjalian and I've rated both of them five stars!
So I am seeing that I definitely need to read more by Bohjalian. The first one I read by him is The Sleepwalker, see my review for that one here.
The book immediately started off with excellent tension and suspense and it stayed fast-paced throughout. I think the book would have been fine with just Richard and Alexandra's POV, but the added POVs from Richard's wife and daughter really rounded out the story and added in more emotion.
I went back and forth between sad, disgusted, and furious. I mean that in a good way because the writing is phenomenal. I will warn you that one main topic in this novel is sex trafficking.
I know that not everyone is okay with reading about that subject, but let me just say it's well done in this book. Even though, yes, there are some parts that are a little tough to read.
I loved it! It's a gripping, chilling, and intense read. I highly recommend it for all thriller fans!

I don't know what to say about this book except: Riveting! I will probably write better review later, however, I wanted everyone to know what a page turner this book is.
It is based on sex slaves and abduction. It has murder and mayhem. It has love and caring. It encompasses everything into one amazing, incredible ride of a read!
Chris Bohjalian is a very gifted and amazing storyteller. This was my first book by him and it isn't for sale yet, but write down the name, you need to read it.
It is v I don't know what to say about this book except: Riveting! It is vividly descriptive with a cast of characters that are complex and so well developed that you will feel their fear, pain and love.
It encompasses the moral consequences of our actions and how what we do and how we handle things can lead us down roads we can not fathom.
Sex slavery is a real problem, with real children and teens. It ruins lives. Read this book for them and for yourself.
Be aware, it happens right here in the USA! I hope I have done this book justice, there is so much more to say, but I don't want to give it all away.
Read this book when it comes out. I know I will be reading all of Chris Bohjalian's books after this one.
Unbelievable read! This is one of my favorite authors and I always love his books. He tells a good story but also makes a social statement.
This was another book that I could not put down once I started reading it. I won't give the story away except to say that my only disappointment was the main character did not make it to the end of the story.
He was so likeable and caring and you really wanted things to come out good for him. But overall a very good story. It all began at a bachelor party- the one that Richard Chapman was hosting for his younger brother Phillip.
Strippers were booked for the party - they showed up and the party goers began to get drunk. Soon they all became sober!
The "girls" attending the party, along with their "body guards" became the main focus, when the girls killed their keepers. The two Armenian sex slaves then fled the party.

Now both Richard and Phillip had to explain to their parents, Phillips fiance' and Richards wife and daughter what happened. The Chapman house is cordoned off as a crime scene and Richard is banished to a motel, while his family stays at his mother-in-laws.
Now Kristin has lost faith in her husband and their 15 year marriage. To make matter worse, Richard, an investment banker, is asked to vacate his job.
The girls are on the run - afraid of their captors, equally afraid of the police, having only been in the US for a brief few months and realizing they could be held for murder.
This story is told by both Richard and Alexandra - the one Armenian girl that became close to Richard while at the party. This story is a typical great novel by Bohjalian.
There is considerable bad language and references to sex in this story that covers one of the worst true to life evils. It is a fast paced book and hard to put down.

Chris Bohjalian is one of my favorite authors. I liked the premise of Guest Room and thought the ending was realistic.
Though I realize sex trafficking is a reality the way it was portrayed here did not seem realistic to me.
Character narrative and development and plotting seemed less compelling than usual but overall Guest Room is certain to be well received by Bohjalian fans.

Finally feeling better. Richard is hosting his brother Philip's bachelor party in his home but is totally unprepared for the kind of party Philip's friend Spencer arranges.
When the party is over, Richard's house is the scene of sexual excess and murder, courtesy of the 2 sexslaves that came with their Russian bodyguards.
When all is said and done, Richard Chapman's house has become a cri I am still catching up from being sick so I will write full review later.
When all is said and done, Richard Chapman's house has become a crime scene and he is in danger of losing both his job and his marriage.
Richard has to earn back the trust of both his wife Kristan and his young daughter, who cannot believe what has happened to their lives.
They are not even allowed into their house because it's a crime scene. Richard will have to earn his place back to the marriage bed. The 2 girls Sonja and Alexandra are on the run for their lives.
They have the 2 guns and all the money that the 2 Russians holding them, now dead, had on them. Somehow they make it from Pennsylvania to New York City and buy burner phones to keep in contact and check into separate hotels to try to figure out what to do in a foreign country, with no documentation.
Richard and Alexandra shared an honest moment when they sat together in the guest room completely naked, and just talked. Richard remembered his marriage vows and Alexandra finds it unbelievable that he wants nothing but conversation.
She was young when she was taken from Armenia to Russia by an older "friend" of the family to be a ballerina. It wasn't long before she found out what was really wanted of her.
The same story applies to all the other young girls she is imprisoned with. All they are wanted for is sex. Will Richard get his life back? Will the 2 girls be able to survive?
I loved this book but I hated the ending. I love Chris Bohjalian's writing but I felt like this book ended too abruptly. There were too many unanswered questions.
Me not liking the ending is the only reason I gave The Guest Room 4 stars instead of 5. A must read.
This is an amazing book. Chris Bohjalian has such a knack for slipping his readers right into the lives and hearts of his characters.
With this book, he has not only created a chilling thriller but also a deep complex novel about family and trust.
He also opens your heart and mind to the horror of child sex trafficking in such an intimate way that is completely heart rending. The striking comparison between the lives of the two young girls in this book makes for an engr This is an amazing book.
The striking comparison between the lives of the two young girls in this book makes for an engrossing read.
Both love ballet, both love Barbie dolls but one becomes a sex slave. Two year-olds from Armenia, abducted as teenagers, held captive as sex slaves in Russia throughout their adolescence, and then brought to New York City where the captors know their value as sexual assets will soar.
But the dark-haired girl, Alexandra, faces a much graver danger. In one breathless, violent night, she is free, running to escape the police who she fears will arrest her and the gangsters who she knows will kill her.
A captivating, chilling story about shame and scandal, The Guest Room is a riveting novel from one of our greatest storytellers.
