I was a fucking mess reading this book.
I don't think I've ever wept that much over a novel.
It's beautiful and just a tiny bit emotional. ( )

Third time lucky - as in, I'd tried to start reading this twice before and given up in the first few pages. The prose is certainly challenging, certainly experimental, but once you "get your ear in", the writing is solid and there are moments of brilliance. I loved "his lassitude and longitude", "daub my soul with a few good pints til my mouth swings wide with unutterable shite", "skitter I little and traitor knees" and then this:
But whistling down from the blue night it comes: I had not grasped that the sun still rose after I love you. Maybe he missed that also. So neither of us was careful enough and broke it before we’d understood. ( )

I really enjoyed the writing style of this book once I got used to it. I think it captured well the fractured way our thoughts look when we obsess over a romantic interest. I didn't like the ending, but that may be more of a personal preference from my experiences than about the book itself. I don't think it was an error in style that the narrator was so myopic, but if I were her friend, I would tell her to focus a little more on her acting and date someone her own age...which speaks to how immersive the book is into the character's mind, that I feel like giving her advice!

This took some getting into to. I think it may have been better in print as there were very few indicaitons of chapter breaks within the audio meaning that it was best listened to in long stretches, which isn't always possible.
So, the words of warning to get out of the way first. This is quite explict. There is sex (a lot of sex) not all of it entirely consensual, there is child abuse that is described in graphic detail and it is, on the whole, quite unpleasant. But, if you can cope with that, there is a love story lurking in here somewhere. Eli is a first year drama student from rural Ireland. She meets a man much older than herself, an actor, and they have a one night stand. From their the relationship develops and meets all sorts of lumps and bumps in the road. It goes through some pretty dark places, but there is, at the end, a sense that these two wounded people can both help heal each other in a way that promises hope. It is not an easy listen, at times I did wonder what I had let myself in for. At times I didn't want to go back to the pain and suffering each had been throug - and were in danger of revisiting. It's hard going, but I was left with a positive impression of the book as a whole. ( )

A bizarre, brilliant, touching, taut, raunchy romcom. Experimental and conventional, challenging and simple, heartwarming and heartbreaking - I loved this book and I will press it into as many hands as I can. As good as her debut was I'm amazed this hasn't had more buzz, as it puts so many other similar efforts in the shade. ( )
