The Luck of the Irish - Ireland Reading Challenge Roundup

Today I completed the Ireland Reading Challenge for 2011 at the Luck o' the Irish level (4 books)

5.0, THE RULE BOOK, Rob Kitchin
This was a very ambitious first novel. So much action occurs in just 12 days, so much blood is shed, and from a writer's point of view, so many threads to be tracked, so many characters to be fleshed out. And for me, this was the best novel I read in January. An excellent read, one you must add to your list.

4.3, THE BURNING, Jane Casey

I wouldn't yet put THE BURNING into the top drawer of police procedurals but Jane Casey is certainly an Irish author worth following.

4.3, THE LIKENESS, Tana French

A very long book, but the plot is intriguing. A fictitious undercover "personality" backfires in the way its creators could never have predicted.

4.7, WINTERLAND, Alan Glynn

A thriller set in Dublin with a very contemporary feel. Politics, a flagging economy, and ambitious men result in the murders of two men with the same name.
