Loughshinny by Michael C. Nunes

Loughshinny, Ireland

Twenty-two year old Patrick Quinn is thrilled. Not only did he just recently graduate from university, but he also, much to his surprise, received his parents' blessing when told of his intentions of moving to the United States to work. With his newly acquired degree and handsome looks, his possibilities seem limitless. Soon he arrives in South Boston and takes up residence with two old school mates, Kevin and Phil, who relocated the previous year. After some initial difficulty he at last lands a job with AT&T. He also begins dating the beautiful Tara O'Malley. And just when it appears as though all of Patrick's dreams are finally starting to come true, a call from his family back home dramatically changes his life forever and puts him on a destructive course with destiny, which culminates in a revelation so shocking, nothing could have prepared him for it. Replete with ancient esoteric knowledge, historic Boston locations, and even divine intervention, Loughshinny will be sure to please.

I liked the book. The characters are very interesting, though I must admit the dream sequence is my favorite part of the book. The extremely interesting take on Heaven and Hell is mind blowing. At first, I thought that the story was going in another direction. The whole take of Heaven and Hell could be a novel in itself. But no, it was just a dream... It was a decent story, though, at times, I felt the writing could've been a little better. As it is, it's an entertaining read.

In a day and age when people are so busy and strapped for time, it is always difficult to find the time to sit down and read a really good book. Some folks read for the entertainment value while others read for the mental callistenics. Having said that, Mr. Nunes has penned a very entertaining and original story that is a very easy read. The characters are memorable and extremely likeable. While engrossed in reading this book, I really found myself routing for our "hero", as well as every other character, to succeed.
The star of this story, Patrick Quinn, is originally from Loughshinny, Ireland but relocates to Boston, Massachusetts searching for work after earning his college degree. After arriving in the States, he rooms with 2 old college chums, Phil and Kevin, who graduated a year prior. While struggling to find employment, he meets and falls in love with the alluring Tara O'Malley (also from Ireland). Through determination and amazing perseverence, he at last lands a job with AT & T. As things finally begin falling into place for Patrick, a tragedy turns his life upside down and sends him into a downward spiral that nearly costs him everything he has worked so hard for. Just when Patrick hits rock bottom, he is plucked from his despair by the most unlikeliest of characters. With a new found hope, he is at last able to beat his demons once and for all and move on with his life.
When I completed this book, (which only took me a couple of days to read by the way), I found myself wanting more. Mr. Nunes has definitely left the door open for another novel detailing Patrick's next round of exploits and I for one will be at the front of the line to buy the first copy.

A great book! The reader can and will relate to all the strife Patrick goes through. Captures the essence of the Irish way and Boston! I recommend this book wholeheartedly.

I thought this book was wonderful. I admired the strength his main character had but yet struggled. To have that bond with someone you love. I very much enjoyed it and you will too.
