Customer Review

on 27 August 2013
When I saw that this was being released, I was excited and couldn't wait to get straight into it. From the start you are back in the world of The Commitments, some of the characters are still there, it is still Northside Dublin and the language and humour remains the same. The story is 20+ years on from the last time we heard from the Commitments and you pick it up really quickly.

As the story develops, the excitement remained there however towards the end, the story seemed to drift and it felt like the pages were being padded out to finish with a happy ending. Everything gets nicely tied up at the end but again, the drama of the Commitments was not there. It felt flat at times and in some cases predictable. It is the characters in the year 2012 but it is not the same as the other books in the trilogy.

Worth a read as you will get it finished quickly, it is light and easy reading with some laughs but it is not a classic like the other great Roddy Doyle books.
