Amazing, amazing, amazing! I was absolutely blown away by this book. Have you ever met anybody before that just blows your mind, like you can't take your mind off what they are thinking? This book has so many incredible layers to it and is the birth of a NEW style! No retreaded styles that are good for selling, this is all new. You have to really open your mind to understand it, but it's beautiful, absolutely tear-jerking beautiful and violent in a sad and artistic way. What a genius book though ...more

Okay, so this book got me interested very quickly, then I had to labor a bit to figure out exactly what was going on but then after I did, I was rewarded. I would say this book is not for everyone, you will either love it or hate it. The book is literally from the perspective of a guy who has realistically lost faith in this life, especially after his young daughter dies, who he says died BECAUSE she was so innocent. He is convinced that God and nature hunt the innocent and it is within the huma ...more

I just finished this book, like I just read the last words and I was really, really surprised at the ending. I was choking the tears back. It's crazy how people who have been through the craziest situations end up projecting that in their lives, so true. This book is like reading a poem really, not only because of the way it sounds, like the words and all, but the meaning of the book is so deep. When the main character showed up at the Miami airport dressed as a priest and started kissing the gi ...more
When I was informed that I could find this book at major New York booksellers, I quickly ran out to get it. I was disappointed to find that Book Court in Brooklyn didn’t have the copy I was told they would and hadn’t heard of it. Fortunately, Strand still had one copy (no doubt they had been flying off the shelves).

From the opening sentence, “Oh damnit!” I knew this book would promise me a grand confusion of words to twirl about in my mind for weeks to come. By the thirteenth page, the book had

Who would have thought a book could be both abstract and violent? Way ahead of its time. No wonder people don't understand it. It's way beyond the modern commercial-influenced reader.

Great book.

It may have just been a difficult moon phase, but for some reason I just couldn't get through this one...

This is Eamon Loingsigh (sounds like Lynch), on St. Patrick's Day this year, Three Rooms Press released "Light of the Diddicoy," his third book of fiction.

Liam soon becomes entangled in the Irish-American ga ...more
