5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Read, 31 Aug 2008
This review is from: The Misremembered Man (Hardcover)
The Misremembered Man is a fascinating story of life in rural Ireland in the 1970`s although the characters could be found in any community. The author, Christina Mc Kenna, has skillfully and beautifully woven humour, pathos and anger in her story. Her character descriptions, especially Jamie and Lydia, are so real and very convincing. Jamie`s awkwardness and sad background is a poignant reminder of the cruelty imposed on children by those entrusted to care for them. This contrasts with Lydia`s refinement, attention to detail and privileged upbringing. The Misremembered Man evokes from the reader a roller coaster of emotions. The story is so colourfully written it is impossible to put the book down once started. A must read book with a surprise twist in the tail.[or tale]
