This is a beautifully written book - insightful, thought provoking, and gripping - what I like most is the writing style - it captures you!The story is intriguing, the plot is intricate - a great read!I found it hard to put the book down at times. I personally love it when an author relates to real life, ....and this is quite political, not just romantic -I have to say, I loved both aspects! It is like a great film in a book, you just get caught up in it all.

After reading a previous juliet bressan book(entanglement)which i found addictive but still unsure after reading,i thought i would try another.low and behold what a mistake that was!!unlike the rest of the reviews so far,i was appalled with some of the things written and found too many similarities with the other book i previously read.these similarities were not good either.
it appears that Bressan has a fondness for characters who are regularly drunk and take drugs.the way it was put across was so flippant and with such lack of concern or even consequences, that i was totally aghast.if anything it seems totally natural for the characters.whilst some might say this reflects real life-shouldnt the author take some responsibility in the way this is portrayed?(*SPOILER*)-for example one of the central characters is a doctor who is pregnant.she goes to a party, gets drunk and on the proposal of taking and an estasy tablet jumps right at it.further,the character remarks how good she feels and no thought is given to her unborn child which she intends to keep!also it appears that everyone at the party are high and drunk,there are even some men who attend without their wives as its 'not their kind of party".
infidelity also appears to be an occuring theme in Bressan's novels.most characters are doing this even though they say they love their partner!yeah stuff like this happens,but it seems that in the authors novels this is also a somewhat natural occurence,largely again with no true consequences given to the character involved.
i find that the characters are hardly likeable-not people you can say you would like as friends (well unless your goal in life features alcohol,drugs,more alcohol,cheating,lies etc!!)
its hard to relate to such a tale.

I was drawn to this book because of it's medical backround and I am delighted that I found it.This is a beautifully written,utterly absorbing novel.It is extremely literate and intelligent,but also manages to be easy to read,funny and passionate.The book is about war,love ,theatre ,sex, medicine and growing up and is set in Ireland,New York and Iraq.You can see that it would make a great film.Juliet Bressan is an outstanding new talent ,with shades of Marian Keys,Peter Carey and Hanif Kureishi but a voice that is all her own.I can't wait for her next book.
