A Mad and Wonderful Thing by Mark Mulholland.

In this debut novel we meet Johnny Donnelly – a young man in love with books, his country and the beautiful Cora Flannery. But in his secret other life, he shoots British soldiers; he is an IRA sniper.

As his two worlds begin to collide Johnny takes us on a journey through the history, legends and landscapes of his beloved Ireland. But in the end Johnny has to make sense of his inheritance and his life and does so in an unforgettable climax.

Honestly I can’t decide how I feel about this book. The beginning was boring but I started to enjoy it and the end was not what I expected. I have many feelings about this book but I feel the best thing to do would be to reread and write a full review at some point in the future.

Thanks for reading.

    Kudos to you for your decision to reread the book and wait to write a review. I wish more people would do that instead of going with their gut and possibly ruining not only someone’s day, but their very livelihood as an author.

      Thank you! To be honest I only finished the book 2 hours before writing that post. But it is a book I want to reread before writing a review on it.
