Twenty years later, Dan is in Scotland, terrified to tell his partner about his past, afraid that revealing what he has done will make him unlovable. When he is called upon to return home to his family, the moment of violence in the wake of his defeat that changed his life forever comes back to him in terrifying detail, and he struggles to believe that he’ll be able to make amends. Haunted by shame, Dan relives the intervening years he spent in prison, where the optimism of his childhood was completely foreign.
Tender, savage, and blazingly brilliant, Barracuda is a novel about dreams and disillusionment, friendship and family, class, identity, and the cost of success. As Daniel loses everything, he learns what it means to be a good person - and what it takes to become one.

I had a really hard time digesting this novel. I do not like the "C" word, and this book is littered with its use. I guess if you are a fan of Holden Caufield then perhaps you will enjoy this book. The empathy and frankly the understanding of why this young man was so angry, was lost on me.
