Which of the relationships between the apartment tenants surprised you the most?

Were you surprised by the ways in which each of the apartment tenants was connected to the others? Which relationship surprised you the most? Why?

I think what surprised me the most, was the fact that all were there because of Granny. Or, maybe I was slow in grasping that fact. I was quite surprised to see the link between Kent and his brother.

I, too, was surprised that Granny had been the driving factor in bringing everyone there, especially given some of the critical comments from adults.

I found the brothers the most surprising. There wasn't much mentioned that would have indicated any association between the two. I think I need to read the book again.

I agree with "Tired Bookreader." The brothers were the most unexpected tenants. Incidentally, I didn't laugh once while reading it--comic accuracy as mentioned on the back cover? And rereading the book might give me more of an understanding of the story.

I think the fact that Granny brought them all together and she owned the building surprised me. The brothers really got me. We are all different but they were off the charts different.

The relationship between Granny and each of the other tenants, individually. It came as a surprise to me, too, that Granny was the reason that each of them was there. Guess that makes Granny the most surprising character for me, even though the author gives us a sense of comfort that we know Granny well right from the start.

The brothers' relationship surprised me most.
I can't imagine not laughing while reading this book. There were hilarious places in it - especially with the wurse. I'm glad Wolfheart explained that the wurse was old and tired.
I'm going to read it again because of the places in it I wanted to underline, but didn't.
Loved the book - finally!

Granny had a connection with everyone of them and that was surprising. They were all the reason she was there. The brothers and Wolfheart were a bonus surprise.
