    In the Forest, set in the west of Ireland, is the story of a young man who shoots dead three people in a forest glade. The young man, Mich O'Kane, is "not all there in the head" as one character puts it. By puberty, he is already committing petty crimes, ending up in borstal. By the time he is back home he has also served time in a British jail and is an institutionalised criminal.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Research the actual events before you listen to it.


    What was most disappointing about Edna O'Brien’s story?

    This book was a very detailed story that could have been much bettter if the author let you know right up front that it is based on a true story. More depth into the people would have helped.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narration was fine

  • Angela's Ashes

    Why we think it’s a great listen: There’s no gentle way to put this – Frank McCourt’s performance of Angela’s Ashes is just better than the Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Frank McCourt shares his sometimes heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking story of growing up poor, Irish, and Catholic in the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir Angela's Ashes.

    Karen says: "A classic book *and* a classic audiobook"
    "Facinating"
