I got this hoping it would resemble the Adrian McKinty novels. While the setting is more or less the same, fast forward a couple decades, the plot and the prose in general just don't come anywhere near McKinty's level. Rather disappointing.
I like to weed and read at the same time.
I bought this as part of a two for one. I thought it would be a break from the rather serious biography,history that I usually listen to.It was riveting; the premise and construction worked well. I read until I fell asleep on several nights and had to re-wind. I lived in London near Kentish town (IRA stronghold) throughout the early IRA bombings and the narrator's voices were spot on and chilling. Have bought the next one for a train trip.
What a different book! Highly recommend! you really feel for Fegan. This would make a great movie if done well. LOVE LOVE LOVE Gerard Doyle. Looking forward to Collusion.
I loved pretty much everything about the book. The development of all of the characters that needed a backstory was excellent. The story arc was enjoyable. And the historic premise worked well. This book was over before I knew it.
No extreme reaction. This isn't really that kind of book. I just had a really good time being carried by the story
New England born want-to-be Irishman. I love stories set in Boston and Ireland.
The characters were rich and scary. I felt their "madness"
Gerry was a good and evil in a confused mind.
He is AWESOME
No, never finished it, because I found the excessive profanity rather distasteful.
I enjoyed the beginning of the book, and the idea of guilt manifesting in the ghosts of the victims, but I could not continue after the cursing began.
I will listen to this story again. It was fast paced and I don't want to miss any of the story.
The ghost woman's decision near the very end of the book.
Yes. I listen to the Duncan Kincade/Gemma James series by Deborah Crombie. I really like his voice and the accents seem very smooth.
No, I did not have an extreme reaction, but it was sad. Such a terrible time in history...unthinkable, really. It is hard to believe what the Irish had to live with. This book shares memories of those times. My husband and I took a vacation trip to England in 1984. Three days before our trip the IRA set off a bomb in one of the Heathrow terminal walkways...we walked right by the scorch marks. I think that reality made this book more "real" to me.
I picked it by chance but hung on every word.
The reality around which it is written. I really appreciate historical-based fiction.
Yes, it was hard to get out of my car, good thing I was on a long trip.
A great read, with an unusual twist.
Ghouling and Haunting
The Belfast Redemer
Thought it was written and preformed. The Irish accent got a little hard to follow and some characters blended together. Some of that might just be me being a dumb American, but all in all very solid performance and story line.
