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 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.
Great characters and a great story. Very Irish great performance. Very enjoyable book, great for a long trip in the car.
