  • In two minds

    An ageing Irish couple strangely united by a traumatic accident some 30 years ago. She cannot stand anymore the very notion of cooking cleaning tidying up after him. He drinks. She is a church goer. He is an atheist. She wants to leave him . Apart from the insight in what it meant to live in Belfast in the 70's, and the clever writing by a male author from the female character's perspective with enough flashbacks and gradual unveiling of the initial trauma to keep the reader going, it is difficult to identify with any of the characters. Too much religion? Too much Whiskey without the real consequences? At the same time, imposible to drop the book. Somehow compelling.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Brilliant

    I loved every page, the descriptive prose capturing the reality of the couples life. The introduction of sly drinking was expertly achieved, its impact sensitively portrayed.
