I loved this book. Once I finished it I wanted to just start from the beginning and read it all over again.

This is not a standard cop whodunit book though. If you are looking for a mystery where at the end of the day everything is all tied up and solved, this is not the book for you. This is more like tiny little capsules of peoples lives and actions strung together, sometimes with the barest of threads. When I finished the last page I had more questions than when I started the book, but in this case, that was okay.

The writing is just gorgeous, expressive, and amazingly descriptive. Even when describing something you would rather *not* have down to the last detail, it is still so clear and well written that it blunts the horror.

Books like this make me so happy I'm a reader.

Like Hot Stew, an astute look at modern London. More stylish but perhaps less fulfilling as a whole - although it’s arguably worth it for the opening scene alone

crime scene profile/fiction. I guess I was expecting more of a narrative, more Irish flavor? This is a bunch of different narratives surrounding a truly odd crime scene, and most of the narrators are unreliable, and either insane or not lucid. So if you are interested in how an author might create different voices, bingo! but if you are interested in plot and traditional fiction-writing devices, you will be thoroughly challenged.

A very good read, and good observation of Dublin and gay life. The picture on the cover seems ill chosen.
