Books I've read this year
Havoc, in Its Third Year
"Excellent start to the year, gripping and moving"
The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon)
"What is all the fuss about? The parts about the Holy Family are mildly interesting whatever about the accuracy, but the rest? phhaa"
"Not too bad, not too great either.."
Jiving at the Crossroads: Shock of the New in Haughey's Ireland
"A strong account of the actual & perceived gaps between the power centre of Ireland and the rest of the country."
The Last Family In England
"Mildly diverting until the last quarter or so when it picks up a good bit."
"Good collection from my favourite Irish journo, good cause too"
Made in America
"So much info, very well put across"
The Great Gatsby (Penguin Modern Classics)
"I'll have to read this again, not sure I got the sense of reading the 'definitive American novel' at all"
In Cold Blood
"This is Quality writing, note capital Q"
Marathon Man (Bloomsbury Film Classics)
"One of the best trillers I've read"
Vernon God Little
"Wasn't expecting much of this, but was more than pleasantly surprised, great stuff"
True Believers: The Tragic Inner Life of Sports Fans
"Describes what all sports fans feel at some stage or another, eughhaaggghh"
Leviathan (FF Classics)
"Great opening line, great book, great writer"
"Disappointed in this, did they give him the Booker for Enduring Love?"
30 Days: A Month at the Heart of Blair's War
"Interesting, would have been more so if I read it earlier I suspect."
Europe Since 1870: An International History:
"A history classic, though I only read as far as 1918, decided then to start on next one."
Birdsong (Vintage War)
"Powerful, read description of Battle of Verdun and be left reeling"
"A lovely little book, funny and sad, great intro to Auster."
About the Author
"Really grips you at the start, but inevitably fades a bit thereafter, still recommended though"
Rope Burns: Stories from the Corner
"Superb story telling, gripping, moving, hilarious, devastating"
One Hundred Years of Solitude (International Writers)
"You don't read this, you immerse yourself in it"
The Power and the Glory
"First Graham Greene novel I've read, will read more."
The Barracks (FF Classics)
"McGahern's first, writing is superb, but too much youthful bitterness overshadow it methinks"
The Lifelong Season
"Alternative views of the GAA, Frank McGuigan's story particularly affecting and Irish"
"Nice, some funny moments, but nothing spectacular"
