Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Origins of Benjamin Hackett, by Gerald M. O'Connor, is a hilarious coming of age tale that takes place in Cork, Ireland, and is quite unlike any coming of age story I've ever read.

While the writing is brilliant, the characters are the shining stars, elevating this already phenomenal story to even greater heights. So relatable and genuine, it was easy to feel connected with all of the characters, from the ill-fated protagonists, to the bit-part characters. Don't assume to know how this story will play out - the twists and turns will keep readers continually guessing as to how Benjamin will fare in the end. I love that the story includes a bit of everything -drama, love, loss, suspense, and competition, all while enveloping readers deep into the settings along the coast and the countryside of Ireland

It's hard to believe The Origins of Benjamin Hackett is Gerald O'Connor's first novel. With the exceptional writing, the well-developed characters, and fantastic story line, it seems this author has a natural gift, and I look forward to reading more of his work." - Sheri Hoyte, Reader Views
