Brief Bio:

Brendan Gerad O'Brien was born in Tralee, on the west coast of Ireland and now lives in Wales with his wife Jennifer and daughters Shelly and Sarah.
As a child he spent his summer holidays in Listowel, Co Kerry, where his uncle Moss Scanlon had a Harness maker's shop, which, sadly, is long gone now.
The shop was a magnet for all sorts of colourful characters. It was there that Brendan's love of words was kindled by the stories of John B. Keane and Bryan MacMahon, who often wandered in for a chat and bit of jovial banter.
Most of the ideas for the stories in the collection Dreamin' Dreams originated there, and some are based on actual real character - though Brendan would never admit it, simply because he couldn't afford the ensuing litigation ...

Dreamin’ Dreams by Brendan Gerad O’Brien is a great collection of interesting stories. All the stories have one main common thread - Irish themes that will bring the atmosphere of the Ireland closer to you. Moreover, it also contains many elements of a good book that draws you into it: humour, romance, mystery, adventure, imagination and many more. I especially love the humour that author used in the book. In addition to the humour, the book also provides a good combination of different genres that make reading interesting. Stories are taking place in different places, with different main characters and are focused on a variety of themes what makes the book very dynamic and interesting to read.  The stories are well written and easy to read. With all of the diversity, the book is very interesting and fun to read and I would recommend it to everyone!

This is a great book with loads of very good short stories. This book is beautifully written the author has a great ability to keep you reading and make’s sure you understand everything that is going on I found it really easy to read. My favourite story in this book is the last confessions of farther stone this story is such an interesting read about a priest trying to get through to a young tearaway. It reminded me a little of myself when I was young this stories clearly has a message and so do some of the other stories in the book.  I would recommend this book to everyone there are so many brilliant stories in this book that it will keep you reading for hours has it did me. I will be on the lookout for more books by this author simply because they have a great ability to keep you reading and to get your imagination going which makes it very easy for you to read.
