Must read for Roddy Doyle fans
If you loved A Star Called Henry, you will probably enjoy this book. I found it better than Oh Play That Thing (although parts of that book were wonderful,some of the historical references there seemed contrived and not very convincing). This third novel continues the saga of Henry. In spite of the wretched state that he is in, Henry is still endearing and his story is engrossing. I'm still not convinced that his fate needs to be tied so closely to historical figures, but it's an intriguing premise. A Star Called Henry remains my favorite book of the trilogy, but this is a worthwhile and captivating book as well. No one writes with the brilliance and compassion of Roddy Doyle.
