    Excellent

    This novel was written by a man but really gets into the heart of a woman. It tells the story of an alcoholic, poor battered Irish woman. It is told with sensitivity and heart. The stream of consciousness storyline only reinforced the chaos that characterised her life.

    Simply Amazing

    I had to read this book for an advanced reading class and I have to say out of all the books we had to read, this one was my absolute favorite. I never read a book that implemented that writing style, the confusion and intermixing of past present and current timing really pulled me. I felt this woman's pain; I questioned her sanity, her choices and even her uncertain future. It was a very good read.

    the woman who couldn't stop reading

    I am a huge Roddy Doyle fan and this lives up to my expectations of him. I loved Paddy Clarke HA HA HA and look forward to reading Paula Spencer. This story was moving and gripping and ultimately very sad. You could feel the pain and the struggle against the bottle and her confusion of why she stayed married to the man who beat her. She freely admitted that she loved him too much to leave. The way she felt about her children was so honest. It is so hard to believe that this was written by a man and not an abused/ alchoholic woman.
