2 brothers with chips on both shoulders, a confused wife, a pissed off girlfriend and 2 passive parents ( Mom, and Dad)and friends that ( omg) would have driven me insane.

As I read this, I kept thinking why why am I reading this book, but as I ended each page I would turn for the next page and so on and so on until I was at the end.

But in the end, I was glad I stayed and finished the book, even though both brothers make you feel like reaching into the pages and knocking them both on the head an...more

This was a good read, with sharp, taut and believable dialogue. The contemporary use of language underpins this roller coaster tale about a tragic and dysfunctional family. It is a dark story, told with a quirky humour, and the reader is drawn along at a fast pace.

This book has pitch-perfect dialogue with largely believable characters. It will force you to reconsider your relationships and how they have ended, progressed, and carried on. In that context, it's a brilliant book.

With that said, I struggled with the plot devices and twists; they bordered on the implausible in at least a few instances.

Good read

Would have preferred less language but I enjoyed the turn of events. It made me want to keep reading to see what would happen next!

Would probably not have come across this if not for a free BookBub offering. Compelling story and characters, great writing style — Bravo! Will definitely keep an eye out for Jim Murray in the future.

Brother is a story of a family feud, a dark tale, lightly told. I found the narrative to be often quirky and offbeat, and is at all times engaging with a very enjoyable momentum. This novel really is a page turner.

I enjoyed this book. It's making me rethink my issues with my older sister, which is a good thing. I'm not sure I believe some of the plot turns, but it all worked together and was ultimately satisfying.

I am the 45 year old owner of a media company based in Ireland. I have, in the distant past, written features for magazines, and I have also written three novels (mere apprentice pieces!) - my latest novel, Brother, is my fourth; and the first that I have had the confidence to publish.
