Eureka StreetRs who would not do what they wanted them to do Belfast NYC Sandy Hook and Fort Hood have all been victims f that thinking I cannot recommend this book highly The writing is lyrical The story involves all your emotions and you just end up caring about all the characters It is a perfect book I loved this book when I started reading it The first half is incredibly funny A Pimps Life often laughut loud hysterical with a clear voice that pulls you along effortlessly It satirizes The Troubles in Northern Ireland brilliantly But after reaching the half way point chapter 11 a really moving stand alone story which by itself is worth reading this book for it goes downhill immediately Nothing happens the jokes become predictable ie didn t we just read all this and everything is contrived The second half made me think that the book as a whole isn t all that great Still funny still engaging with intriguing Gigolos Get Lonely Too observations but the writer s portrayalf the US a complete and utter stereotype which is both insulting and poorly researched makes me think that nothing about Belfast is portrayed honestly either Satire is A Winter Wonderland (A Lucy Stone Mystery, one thing complete and utter bullshit is another I d recommend reading the book and stopping after chapter 11 5 stars for the beginning 2 stars for the end I joined Goodreads after a bad experience with a collectionf loosely tied short stories that shall remain nameless That book hit me Temptation (The Hunted over the head with a bat kicked me in the gut drovever me and dropped what was left in a frozen river from a tall bridge It was a formative experience but at the moment I hated it so much so from a tall bridge It was a formative experience but at the moment I hated it so much so fiercely with passion And n top f that I thought it was pretty shitty the proportion ualityeffect it had Secret Observations on the Goat-Girl on me was completelyff So I told myself never again never again to pick up a book based Unbound on titles covers and blurbs Viva goodreads and previouspinions The problem An Extreme Modification (Milked by Royalty, of that being I would have missed this book tooCuriously my love for Eureka Street didn t bloomvernight In fact after finishing it I thought it was good enough but the plot is not exactly believable and I was expecting it to look cheap in hindsight
