Darcey is a likeable 'anti heroine' but she doesnt inspire that much feeling towards her - just a passing tolerance, bordering on mild irritation, of her constant bumbling.
Nieve is so unlikeable from the word go, that like other reviewers, I couldnt have cared less what happened to her, my only wish being that she would have faded out of the story early on.
Unlike previous novels by this author, many of the secondary characters are so 'grey' as to be almost non existent, and sadly they therefore dont add the necessary background to the plot lines.
If you have never read Ms O Flanagan, DONT start with this one, try the earlier, and much better stories.
Here's to a return to top class writing with her next novel.
I think possibly what may be lacking is that for a large portion of the book the two main characters Nieve and Darcey are a continent apart. Invariably this means that there is less opportunity for dialogue between the two. For my mind this is a pity as I think O'Flanagan's ability to bring characters alive through their dialogue is one of her strengths.
A story of 2 halves. I liked the character of Darcey and it was her story that kept me hooked. However the character of Nieve held little appeal so I found it hard to care about her eventual fate or what would happen to their friendship.
An enjoyable read, not her usual page turner, but recommended.
"Bad Behaviour" is the written by Sheila O"Flannagan and it was not one of her best. I didn't think my of the character Nieve, I think that she didn't really what she deserved and I kept waiting for it to go back to Darcey's story. The ending of the book kept we wanting more and for a minute I thought that I was missing some pages. Overall, "Bad Behaviour" was not one Ms. O'Flanagan better books.
I was initially worried about the length of the story but once I started reading it, I went through the pages pretty quickly - two days!
My only complaint is that Neil's character was not fully developed. Maybe more writing space should have been devoted to him instead of Nieve because no matter how much the writer tried to make us like Nieve, she does come across as a very selfish person in her dealings with all people.
