Recommended for: Anyone who is feeling nostalgic.

I'd been working on a book based in Ireland where the protagonists were two brothers so this looked liked the perfect reference material for me. I think my memory of the book has suffered because I was reading the book with a purpose in mind rather than enjoying it in its own right. The political edge to the book annoyed me because politics in general annoys me but in order to be accurate it needed to be there.

When I first picked it up to add to my bookshelf I thought I'd remembered nothing about it but a quick flick through was all I needed and I think my inability to remember says more about me and my limitations than it does the author and his ability to write something memorable.
