    This is a book that crackles It is one of the finest books to come out of Ireland in the last 10 years It brought me right into a world that s right under my nose the world of the gangland The voice of the character is so strong You really feel you know what it s like to be one of those Merchant s Quay junkies It takes real skill to get readers to sympathise with a character you d otherwise run across the street to avoid The plot is a little hard to follow at times and i

    I loved this book I loved the characterisations, and the way the story unfolded as the book progressed I couldn t wait to get back to it when I wasn t reading it I thought the spelling to affect the Dublin accent might soon grow to irritate, but instead it faded into the background and wasn t noticeable after a while.Dark, menacing, brooding but always captivating.

    I enjoyed the book obviously it s set in Dublin and is primarily about constructing a life story out of unreliable memories, so my scholarly interests are piqued but it was probably at least 30% longer than it should have been Additionally, one of the blurbs on the back cover is fairly misleading The darker, grungier, flipside to Harry Potter, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell which made me a bit impatient with the book at times That s a shame, because it s quite good at what it does

    I learned that pretty much entire Dublin was a ghetto until recently I learned what the Hellfire Club legend is I learned a lot of swear words in dublinese I now know what a Jo maxi is.The book tells the story of Lucy from childhood to adulthood a poor family, in a poor area of the city, with not many prospects It was completely different from what I expected and what the dark side of Harry Potter quote on the cover indicates, but a real page turner Rarely have I had such mixed feel I lea

    The ending gets a bit too mystery novel exposition y but overall this is a pretty riveting read that justifies its length.

    A gorgeously devastating epic narrated by a violent junkie who s just been released from prison It took me a few chapters to warm up to Lucy, but she quickly became one of the most unique and fully realized main characters that I ve ever encountered She addresses her story to a man from her past, and as she tries to make sense of a tragedy that fractured their tumultuous relationship she narrates not only her own childhood, but also her family history, and the birth of gangland Dublin Hellfir A gorge

    I picked this up in an airport in 2006 on a whim, mainly because I found the cover attractive It was a lucky pick for me as I would say this is my all time favourite book.Yes it s long, the Dublin dialect is initially hard to endure but by the end of a few chapters it just faded into obscurity and actually made the charactersreal and solid in my imagination It s a tale of love, family dynamics probably not the good kind , sexuality, drug abuse, violence and even magic Mia Gallagher did I picked this up in

    Don t attempt this book unless you have got a lot of time on your hands it is long and rambling or unless you have a strong stomach as it is unrelentingly grim with some sickening violence and graphic descriptions of drugs and their effects, as well as social deprivation.It is the story of a junkie, set in Dublin in the 80s and her attempts at finding some meaning to her life I did get a lot out of it despite it being way too long and it does have some moments of poetic beauty but it was als Don t attempt this b

    My actual rating is 3.5 stars Very different from what I expected basically tells the life story of a heroin addict spanning several decades in the slums of Dublin Lucy the addict narrates, so the writing isconversational and terse The dialect takes a bit getting used to, but I commend Gallagher s boldness for writing Lucy s character so in depth and detailing a story with very little redemption not for the weak of heart.

    This was a last grab at the library and I enjoyed it muchthan I was expecting to I did not guess the ending at all and the story kept me interested and turning pages throughout Usually with books so long, there are parts which get boring and a bit draggy but that didn t happen with this book Very pleased I read it
