No spoilers This should seem like a no brainer but I really have to watch myself and if that doesn t already make you want to read this book This tale is set in the West of Ireland While not having visited that area I can not say for sure how true to life it is but will comment that it does not seem romanticized for the sake of readershipTrue to form Mr O Brien continues his descriptive narrative in this book Nature takes on a whole other reality through his words While always nice it is particularly warming in this story which happens to be in an outdoor settingWhile talking about the setting and nature is nice and all I am sure the characters are much interesting at this point Young adults all they each have their own uniue personalities and remain that way throughout the story They do not change at some point to drive the plot nor do their actions help to make the story any easier to tell or read Our protagonist gets a little difficult to read at times I found him moody and self absorbed at times but again each character stays true to form and Derek is no differentWhile it seems an awful lot happens for being a short stay with friends on holiday it does not seem like things were crammed into the plot to move it along Occasionally life gets so very very busy that it all dumps on you at once This is a tale of such a timeWhile there are twists and turns and lots occurring within each character s life there is plenty of humor sprinkled throughout the story I will admit the line He had a gut like a Tardis had me giggling for uite awhile Full disclosure I love Dr Who and find all references outside normal fandom intriguingI enjoy Mr O Brien s writing However this particular book went beyond enjoyment This is a novel that will stay with you long after the initial reading It is worth multiple reads and a place in your kindle or bookshelfSo hopefully I have made you want to read this even and have not spoiled any of the twists and turns that are coming your way once you pick up this book
