Before this book, I had only read the first in the series, but it states in the description that these could be read as stand alone, and it does work out that way. At any rate, these books are such an indulgent escape that I plan to read the ones I skipped over as well, though I'd better wait a month or so, because I need to get some things done around the house. I sort of neglected a few things while reading this book. Very enjoyable, irreverent, and overall, just a true reader's guilty pleasure that is unlike any of the other reading you'll pick up in a bookstore.
. Fionnuala, without any redeeming qualities whatsoever,manages to terrorize her family,while dragging every drop of humanity from the poor family. I'm left wanting to adopt the little "wanes".Thank you for wonderful reading!

Hansen's larger than life characters always have me in stitches with their fresh and gritty Derry wit. If they're not tripping down steps, they're standing on abandoned toilet seats or otherwise getting clonked at some inopportune moment. Hansen's timing for comedy is spot on and there's not many who get it down to such a fine art. His characters are often getting their wires crossed which adds to the tragi-comedy. I've said it before but it's always worth a another mention - Hansen is a master of plot and no scene goes to waste. As if all this wasn't enough, the author still manages to make every sentence fresh and full of literary gems. Here is one example: 'her body was like an ageing sofa you'd want to dump on a skip, shapeless and uncomfortable, with lumpy bits...' This isn't an isolated example either. The book is full of such startling treats. I learned about Irish Alzheimers' which is 'they forget everything but a grudge'! Then there are the usual wacky and wonderful names such as Top-Yer-Trolly (an old friend), Pence-A-Day and Eat-So-Yum. Hansen knows how to poke fun and revels in it. So sit back, enjoy the ride and hilarity and the nail-biting climax. You won't be disappointed.
