    Really entertaining

    I loved the beginning, and just got into it, and I found as long as I made a list of characters I could easily keep track of what was going on. I'm sure I would have a better appreciation were I to study a bit of Irish folklore, but even being ignorant didn't impede my ability to appreciate the absolutely brilliant tapestry he's weaving. The characters are wholly real, and I love his use of the English language. I was reading multiple books when I read this one, and for the last half of the book I quit reading everything else and just concentrated on At Swim! Most recommended.

    Brilliantly written verbal voyage of imagination

    This book is a wonderfull menagerie of fantasy and frivolity. A blur of fact and fiction. Wonderfully written, it paints vivid pictures in the mind and takes the written word where it has never been before. A must read!

    If you like good literature read this one!

    A wonderful book. It can be a bit hard to get started. I suggest the old read-aloud-trick to find the author's voice and rhythms. Once I read a few pages aloud and found the music within I was hooked. Great author intrusion. Many exciting techniques. A writer's writer.
