Carry me Down by MJ Hyland


“Shortlisted for the 2008 Booker prize. Sadly not for me as good as her new novel. If I’d read this first I’d never have read This is How.
This is a family story set in Dublin. We have a traditional dad, neurotic mother, and an odd adolescent son, the later is the protagonist.
It is absorbing and hard to give up un, it plods along, one expect things to happen, but then it ends abruptly and without interest (guess I missed the point).
I’ll read her next.

Score 5/10

Date read August 2009
