room with her He finds her extremely annoying and pathetic, calling her frail or vulnerable every few pages, and describes his feelings for her as pure hatred So naturally he stays with her for most of the book, because he is too nervous to tell her he s not interested and to attempt to look after himself The fact that she not only puts up with his bullshit, but actually clings onto him in desperation as least that s how he sees it , creates another unbelievable and pathetic character.We follow Eddie through his sexism fuelled passive aggressive relationship, his love hate relationship with his wolf of wall street office coworkers, and his witless relationship with his friends who come offas 40 somethings who have outgrown their years of partying and prefer dinner and a good vintage wine, rather than recent graduates in the big city.Apart from that, not much happens Flawed main characters are usually interesting, but every character in this book is flawed annoying two dimensional

ma anche no.Siccome su anobii non si pu mettere un voto come 2 stelle e mezzo metto tre stelle, ma solo perch sono buono Like Ardal O Hanlon s The Talk of the Town, this Irish coming of ager features a flawed protagonist who has uncomfortably settled in the big city here London , and is struggling to make his way here as a musician , and is involved in a serious relationship beyond his ability to handle Unlike in O Hanlon s book, the reader here can find enough good in Eddie Virago to root for him at least part of the time as he makes his way toward adulthood Perhaps the best aspect of the

incipitmania.com I didn t like this book at the beginning It felt bland and cliched But it got better and though it was kind of hokey at times, it did move me It s by an Irish author, so it was interesting to read from an Irish viewpoint. Awful O Connor has written some very good books, but this isn t one of them A bit of embarrassing juvenilia best forgotten. *READ KINDLE ⇚ Cowboys & Indians ✒ Joseph O Connor s first novel is a sharply focused and realistic story about a thoroughly unlikable Irish guitar hero who nevertheless manages to capture the reader s sympathy amidst a bewildering array of London acid house ravers and saloon bar revolutionaries Author has a great sense of humor found myself laughing out loud in places BTW Sinead O Connor s brother They ve got to be like night and day.
