    As all Irish books, the Irish main character fails to live up to realism and the reader s expectation of a charismatic central character Not much is interesting, even its less than rewarding finale I guess it s really for middle aged women this one is.

    This is the first book I read from this bestselling Irish author I had good reviews and was a nice read I had a difficult time liking the main character, Colm He was totally clueless about women Perhaps in 1968, nice Irish boys are totally clueless but reading it now

    The book was ok, but not one of my favourite Mary Ryan Books The author easily conveyed the characters turmoil and demons Would not be one I would recommend, as there are better books out there.
