4.0 out of 5 stars An original and quirky romp around Ireland, 29 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Operation Leprechaun (Paperback)
This is an interesting first book from this new author and I must say is not the sort of book that I normally read. But then it is not easy to put a finger on what sort of book it is.
It is not a fantasy story, it is not an out and out comedy, it is not a political satire.
I suppose it is a sort of Irish political, comedy, mystery adventure with Leprechauns.
What we have here is an original and quirky romp around Ireland in the company of a motley bunch of characters with many a nod, wink and sly poke at Irish history and politics and religion.
The main characters are the men, or at least they think they are the main protagonists. But very much in the tradition of the Irish family it is the women who are the heroes and the women who have to sort out the mess.
This book is deceptively light in the way it moves along but in fact I was impressed with how well researched it is, from the historical, religious, political and cultural references to the geographical meanderings, which are so detailed that they can be tracked on Google Earth.
It will be very interesting to see what the author come up with next.
