To say that I Iiked Smile would be a wrong. Rather it gripped me. Doyle's narration is perfect. Few authors can pull it off--voicing their own works. Stephen King can, and Roddy Doyle can.
They share other attributes: an ease with natural dialogue, a knack for showing us their characters from the inside out, and an ability to subtly build suspense. And a talent for giving us endings as sharp as a switchblade.

I expected no less from this familiar writer. Still the dialect was so transporting, and the personal rumination so deftly chronicled, the character and his demons will live long in my consciousness. Brilliant!
