A wonderful story depicting life in Cork. I laughed, I cried, and honestly I can't decide if I wanna read the second book or crawl into a corner for a week. Great books make you feel things and this was magnificent. I can't wait to see what else Lisa McLnerney creates.
Would you listen to The Glorious Heresies again? Why?
The writing, the language, the masterful performance
What does Shelley Atkinson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Her accents and clear voices of each character, an excellent performance.
If they give out oscars for how well a book is read, Shelley Atkinson deserves one. All the characters are beautifully drawn by Lisa McInerney and dialogue different and Atkinson voices each one beautifully and truthfully to the writers great talent.

I loved the wit of the Irish voice in this story and the talent of the narrator in bringing it to life. Maureen was my favourite - she made me laugh out loud a few times. Beautifully written. Best book I've listened to in a long time.

I found this novel hard to listen to- especially the early chapters. Shelley Atkinson helped me through with her fantastic ability at giving each character a distinctive voice.
I loved every minute of this book. Superbly read and brought to life by the beautiful Irish voice of Shelley Atkinson. This was my book club book. The two of us who listened to the text enjoyed it markedly more than those who read it - a testament to narrator. Engaging story (slightly too many coincidences I thought) and plenty to discuss. Nature/nurture, poverty, Irish economy, clever writing allowing the reader to cheer for the bad guy- always fun. Can't wait for the sequel.
