Days Without End by Sebastian Barry

I always look forward to a new book by Sebastian Barry and it is usually a couple of years wait between novels. This book was certainly worth the wait. Days Without End is his best novel since The Secret Scriptures and tells the story of Thomas McNulty who is forced to leave County Sligo Ireland as a young boy as a result…See More

"I look forward to your reviews on the other Rolf Boldrewood works. I feel guilty because as an Australian I should have read this famous book and also I haven't read any of his books!"

"I watched the first series and then started the books and had to read them all until I finished the series. I became a little obsessed with the story and watching all the characters and the storyline develop with the next generation. Ross…"

This must be the place by Maggie O'Farrell

Maggie O'Farrell is one of my favourite authors and I first discovered her work when I read the Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox which I highly recommend by the way. She writes beautifully about relationships and her characters feel very real. This is the story of Daniel Sullivan and it covers his relationships and life…See More

Hey! I just started Kate Grenville's The Lieutenant. Although I really enjoyed her last novel, The Secret River, I'm finding this one a bit hard to get into. Maybe it's the stilted writing, its just not flowing! But the characters are quite vivid. So we'll see.

Thank you for the welcome.

Favourite authors? Ian Rankin and Robert Wilson in crime, Ian McEwan, Andrew Greig . . . as usual my mind has gone blank when put on the spot. Really I read all sorts. Membership of two book groups keeps me busy reading what I wouldn't otherwise pick up myself, often with surprising results.

Hi Lindach, Mosman's a home away from home for us (my hubbie's from Sydney). I'm always look for new and interesting reads. At the moment I'm into Australianna/historical - Just finished 'For the Term of His Natural Life' and have now moved on to 'The Fatal Shore' (recommended by a friend in Sydney). Any others you'd recommend?

Thanks so much! I'm excited for my next reads!

Not at all - quite like it when I get my act together to add my bit !

Thanks I will look out for them. I really like her characters although the last few books have been a bit over the top. I like the exploration of S and M but it has been taken to new levels with her. I am waiting for her new book to read to see if she has gone back to her better work. She has an amazing imagination.

Are there any books about Irish vampires? ; )
