5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and extraordinary, 16 April 2001
This review is from: The Informer (Paperback)
I read this because it was endorsed by Kevin Toolis who's "Rebel Hearts" is a classic journalistic exploration of the human nature of the republican movement. This book rings true, and Mr O'Callaghan's story astonishes. A young "volunteer" he turned informer in an attempt to redeem himself, having murdered and assisted in murder for a morally bankrupt organisation. His work became the destruction of the Provisional IRA from within. Such courage... Read it! (and read Rebel Hearts too!)

4.0 out of 5 stars a sublime performance of beautiful music, 28 Jun. 2000
The sensitivity of expression in this performance is unbeatable, and the sound is lovely, but alas Mr Gould relentlessly sings along to the music, which I for one could do without... But the loveliness of the piano overcomes the drone of the voice... just.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling and beautifully written, 9 May 2000
This review is from: Regeneration (Paperback)
Pat Barker's prose is full of poetry, and her characters are filled with life. Truly this is a wonderful work, illuminating and strong. "Read me".
