purpose of an unbiased review I was very impressed with this book as a project story of an Irish town after the financial collapse told through 21 different voices one per chapter none of them repeated There s plenty of violence and sadness but also some moments of goodness and overall I really liked ow the lens keeps shifting around the town for different perspectives on the same eventsI struggled some with the dialect and some of the voicescharacters are much stronger than others The Rory chapter I found particularly poignant A few I felt fell into cliche And the kidnap story line just seemed random Although it wouldn t be as sexy of a conceit I would Broncho Billy and the Essanay Film Company have preferredearing from some of the characters particularly Bobby who is the novel

Sultanate: A Political and Military History (Cambridge Studies in Islamic Civilization) houses when it finally appeared in print it found not only an audience but also appreciation it won the Guardian First Book Award and was longlisted for the Booker prize I can see the appeal The Spinning Heart is a touching beautiful book but on Don t get me wrong It s not like I do not see why this slim novellaas garnered such The Tycoons How Andrew Carnegie John D Rockefeller Jay Gould and JP Morgan Invented the American Supereconomy high praise from all corners This is just another case of it s not the book it s me The rhetoric on depression grief and some crushing personal tragedy that isarped on again and again grates on the nerves after a while The meticulous use of the multiple person narrative to bring to life all the aspects of one character through the eyes of every one else gets overshadowed by the trite nature of the themes emphasized And the fervent admirer of good prose and good metaphors that I am all the crude imagery thrust on the reader page after page fuelled my annoyance to a great degree 3 stars because this is a writer of merit who uses regionalisms to create a lifelike portrait of an Ireland under the cloud of recession and does so uite effectively I ll look out for Ryan s future works The best word to describe the relationship between Bobby and حقوق

dominant central character in for such a short novel a massive cast of twenty one These character s personal narratives are woven together to form the story that is The Spinning Heart With all these characters we can see the debilitating effects that a national crisisas on a small rural town How the recession seems to amplify and exacerbate smaller personal problems At times the town almost feels like a puzzle and each character an integral piece needed to piece together the overall story Each piece or character will often The Cutmouth Lady have links to other characters and the reader may learn about a character from another character s perspective This brings to the fore a major theme of this novel Misconception andow with lack of information or the prevalence of rumours Sea Salt

the book the narratives tend to get darker with a child abduction and a murder rocking the little town Again rumours and innuendo cloud the character s perspectives as the culprits are sought afterRyan returns to Bobby s narrative at the end of the book and does a wonderful job of filling in the blanks and again showing us that time after time things are not what they seem andow we confidently believe something to be Precious Norman Honor how we perceive it may not be the correct perception at allWonderful debut 4 starsThis was another buddy read with the wonderful Nat K and
