I SO hope this author is planning more books in this vein. I'll be standing in line to buy them!
The tone of the novel is that of bittersweet naughtiness. Its' marked by the same sharp, effortless eloquence one would expect from an Irish author. O'Donoghue lampoons Irish stereotypes and perpetuates them at the same time. As a wishy-washy Catholic like myself can certainly appreciate it. The novel is meant to tease and appease both who shamed the Catholic Church and try to exonerate it.
From start to finish I found this a delightfully engaging read. I loved the fact that the main character is not only a nun - but also a centarian (how often do you come across those in novels!?) with the energy and drive of someone one tenth her age. The pace of the story is perfect, it grips you right from the very beginning, and before you know it you're off with Sr Agatha on her journey to become the oldest person in the world. And what an adventure it becomes!
The writing is witty and clever. As the reader you meet so many wonderfully interesting and colourful characters along the way - they're so vivid they almost jump out from the page at you! I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of their own personal stories, and never did the telling of those take away from the overall plot itself.
A right old caper is how I would describe this book - it's so much fun, so entertaining, so hilarious at times that you'll be hard pressed to put it down.
