5.0 out of 5 stars A great read & Hard to put down., 2 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have enjoyed all of Yrsa's adult stories. This one has a very interesting and fascinating plot. Yrsa writes with a real compassion for people with developmental and physical illnesses. She also, through the main character, Thora, has a very keen eye for the detailed quirks, behaviours and actions of people.

Although the story deals with despicable crimes, it is somewhat balanced in a good way, by Throra's very real life type family issues and her obvious down to earth and humorous view of modern life.

Only negative comment was the rather quick wrap-up & explanations in the last few pages.
A good read, could not put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars raw and real, 28 Oct 2006
I have all of Chris Rea's albums. I enjoy them all; however to my ears this is the best yet. From the first few bars of the opener "Jazzee Blue", you can hear that this is a tight group of quality musicians yet there is that raw edge and intensity of a live performance.

Although the fresh and innovative reworking of old hits are great, it is the newer material that really seems to come to life with an energy. Chris's singing is very strong; his slide playing varies from a viscious intensity to expressive emotion.

The band, as usual, is top quality, and the sound quality is amazing. Sometimes you forget that it is a live recording. I was at the Manchester concert, although nothing was recorded there, it is a great memory of an amazing live peformance of musicianship.

Looking forward to the fireflies.
