5.0 out of 5 stars Eloquent, funny, un-put-downable Nov. 14 2005
By Emi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Wall is an eloquent master of narrative and description. His landscapes are almost tactile. He captures the touch and smell and the visual elements of Ireland and the sea until you almost see what he's writing about. But his books also have powerful plots. Two of my friends read this book at a single sitting. His hero is hateful and loveable by turns and you end up hoping against hope that everything will work out, even though you know from the first chapter that it can't be. Or at least you think you know from the beginning that it can't be...

The narrator (also the hero) is so funny too. It's full of wit and sly irony.

Set in a city first, then in a seaside town, he actually succeeds in the transition so that both settings are totally credible. There's a strong message there too, a warning about what Ireland is becoming with its new wealth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but fastpaced Aug. 30 2005
By Greg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a beautiful but fast-paced book. A strange mixture of thriller and literary novel. Captures Ireland's seamier side. A must-read.
