A remarkable first novel from Sean Hughes: really dark and bleak; unloveable characters; articulatation of thoughts we all have but would never make public. Jan 09, 2013 Richard rated it it was ok.

Nice Wee Irish Revenge Thriller. com User, May 11, 2000. Irish comic Hughes loses the comedy in favor of a fairly clever piece of revenge fulfillment. The jacket blurbs speak of it being "a riveting thriller and blackly comic novel" and being an "urban gothic" a la Welsh, Kelman, Amis, and Self.

Irish comic Hughes loses the comedy in favor of a fairly clever piece of revenge fulfillment. The jacket blurbs speak of it being "a riveting thriller and blackly comic novel" and being an "urban gothic" a la Welsh, Kelman, Amis, and Self. I don't really see any of that: it's entertaining, though not riveting, and takes a while to get going before it can really be considered as a thriller, and I didn't get any comedy--black or otherwise--from it. It's a pretty decent tale about an antique dealer outside Dublin with a psychologically messed-up wife, and what happens when an old bully moves back into town and into their lives. There is a great twist at the end, but other than that, nothing too memorable.

I think l was hoping for a little more from this book. I felt it didn't live up to its cover expectations. It's a fairly interesting story of how a non-confrontational man, John, who has an odd relationship with his wife deals with the return of the bully from his childhood. The bully, Red, also happens to have had a relationship with John's wife. It's a case of David fighting back Goliath, which, more or less, achieves it's aim.
