"The book has plenty of charm and humour, and raises rousing points... Disdain for misogynist yuppies steams off the page; the prose hisses and spits about the horror and injustice of the sex trade... Like (Danny) Everard, you may not like everything here but you've got to admire its guts." Sunday Times"The novel starts with a bang, with a man hanging from the top of a building. The story picks up speed as the men crash a party to save a pair of prostitutes - and that's just the first chapter... Dark but well-humoured, with a pace that will quicken your heart-rate with each chapter." Huffington Post"McManus's book has some clever moments and the conceit is engaging...poses some interesting philosophical questions... There's plenty of promise and it'll be interesting to see what he produces later." Sunday Business Post"A great novel which makes the reader empathise with the enigmatic 3W gang...well-written and endearing. The plot is well-executed and illuminates all sides of the argument... Even Flow is a good story, and has an original execution that makes it worth the price of purchase." So So Gay magazine"The dramatic opening scene sets the tone for a provocative thriller. Mixing influences as diverse as Don De Lillo, A Clockwork Orange and Pearl Jam into a cinematic stew, Even Flow centres on the 3W Gang's unconventional tactics to promote tolerance...marked by filmic descriptions." irishcentral.com
