Frequently bought together
The Green Road is true and rueful, as terribly adult in its clarity as its battered Madigans. -- James Wood ― New Yorker
Enright is a shape-shifter who gets into the nerve centres of her creations; the power of her prose lies in its absence of ego. The Green Road is a devastating novel about home and how savage a place it can be. -- Frances Wilson ― New Statesman
This novel should confirm Enright’s status as one of our (their?) greatest living novelists. I hope she can be persuaded to do a sequel. -- John Sutherland ― The Times
[A] brilliant, devastating, radical novel. -- Kate Clanchy ― Guardian

The first half of the story focuses on the individual members of the family. We see them over a wide period of time and, through each of them, learn about what has happened to the others. This is a difficult feat to achieve and I think that this author manages the structural challenges well.
They then get together in the second half and I found myself being irritated by them all reverting to childhood behaviours, although think that this is exactly what the book needed. Once I got further into the second half I realxed with it and really enjoyed it.
What annoyed me about this book was the end. No spoilers but it felt quite disappointing and I felt that the author didn't really know how to finish the book.
