I read it in 3 days (a record for me!!) as once started I just couldn't resist picking it up again to continue the story of Milo's life. It's not an overcomplicated story and easy to follow and it moves nicely between the past as a young boy and much more recent events. I found I could relate to much of the story/detail which helps of course, but having said it makes for a great read and would recommend accordingly.
Congratulations on your debut book and hope to see volume 2 in the near future.
What a fantastic story, and so well written. Today's kids will never understand the struggle of growing up in 1950's Ireland, where money was tight, but where families were even tighter. Where bitterness destroyed people, but lifelong friendships also developed.
Milo was from such a family. Struggling to make ends meet, and nervous of going against the church, and it's hierachy. He developed a strong friendship with Charley, who was a couple of years his senior, and who, I thought was a little philosophical at times for his age, but did his best to keep Milo on the straight and narrow.
The book also makes us aware of how early in life the demons can get hold of us, and we have to spend our entire life fighting them. Luckily Milo was strong enough to overcome his demons, which is never easy, and grew up to marry and have a wonderful family.
I can't wait for the next instalment of this trilogy. I hope we hear if Milo stayed in contact with his childhood friends, especially Cha and little Tim.
Free flowing and engrossing narrative draws you in to this thought provoking read.

A great read, with some reservations. For instant: Would the term bugger be so readily used in a Cork neighbourhood, The Reservation, in the 1950’s or ingrained in the author’s... Read morePublished 24 months ago by Joe Terry
