What a wordsmith Kevin Barry is. He has an amazing style of writing but the story itself, though very well crafted, didn‘t really appeal to me.
I struggled with this character driven, loose plot novel. I seem to be in the minority here, but I didn't find it engrossing, rather I found it at times to sound a little pretentious. The prose tended to be melodramatic, but I did like how atmospheric they were as well. I would caution anyone else who reads few literary fiction books, but recommend it to those that enjoy it .
