If you like bloody violence then this book might be okay for you, but it wasn't for me and I can't recommend it.
more "action" but I never really saw where this book was going. What he was headed to of relevance and why. I read half the book and gave up, it just wasn't for me. Interesting cover.
Ralph Tooley is a "gap year" student, in English...okay in American English, that means he is taking a sabbatical, a few months off of college. Tooley has already completed his first year at Glasgow University in English Literature when his dad gave him an ultimatum. Quit hanging out with his rough friends or leave the country for a few months. At least that is his dads excuse. After all, Tooley is getting good grades, but as we learn, no ones motive is exactly on the up and up in this dark, dangerous, violent and oh so damn cynically funny novel.
The story is shamefully entertaining as Sean O'Neill's use of metaphor and original hardboiled simile is channeled through Tooley's muse, Raymond Chandler. Chandler is often imitated, but Sean is spot on. Clearly influenced but totally and joyfully original. The story has more twists and turns, so many side capers and mini plots, whacky characters and twists per inch, that you wonder how any author could bring them all around and as Chandler said, "the solution, once revealed must seem inevitable." And Sean O'Neill not only pulls this off, but pulls it off masterfully. I think I have found that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow in Mr. O'Neill.,he is sure to be a hit!
