Pieces of Me reveals almost everything about this writer. She writes about all aspects of her life and in doing so she touches on matters that affect all of us. I was particularly moved by her admission of guilt over her avoidance of her feelings regarding her father's suicide. She is brutally honest about her own shortcomings and that makes me feel I'm not the only one who has succumbed to addictive behaviour as a cure-all. It's not all gloom and doom I was laughing out loud at some of the bizarre happenings she recounts. Overall a good book to have by the side of the bed or on an plane trip.

I love this writer. So honest, so funny, so creative, so fresh.

I've been reading ingle's columns since her U Magazine days (16 years ago). She has a mammoth following here in Ireland not only because she writes for The Irish Times, but because she is a brilliantly astute & witty commentator. She writes about the things you dare not admit to yourself. Priceless prose.

Roisin Ingle's columns are a reflection of the life of a young woman living in Dublin. They have all appeared in The Irish Times magazine over the last three years. She has a gift to make you laugh out loud but also on occasions to cry. The previously unpublished introduction was very moving. This young lady certainly seems to need some help emotionally. She pours out her heart, she appears to hold nothing back and her honesty is amazing. Ingle's writing reminds me of Maeve Binchy's early work when she was a journalist with the same paper.

I thought this was excellent. Ms Ingle's columns in The Irish Times always manage to hit the nail exactly on the head but the strength of the introduction in this collection blew me away with its honesty and courage. Hats off to Ms Ingle who has the gumption to lay herself on the line and doesn't take herself too seriously. I hope this book brings new readers to her column and look forward to many more funny and accurate insights from one of the strongest voices in Irish media today.

Anyone who likes this mediocre columnist's weekly bilge (who ARE you by the way) will love this. If you don't, avoid. It's more of the not-very-good same.
