Product description

Review

Masterly... A first-rate novel about the different bonds between men and the ineffable mysteries of love. -- Claire Allfree ― Daily Mail

Doyle is justly renowned for his whip-smart dialogue... And there is beauty and compassion in Mr Doyle's sculpted, spare writing. Among all the banter and gags he manages to articulate feelings that are rarely expressed so fittingly... Love is a reminder that its author is one to treasure. ― Economist

Fast-paced and deceptively easy to read... Goes down as smoothly as gulps of beer.Boston Globe

Love is altogether spellbinding... The whole book is audacious, richly layered and often comic, but ultimately deeply moving... Move over Socrates and watch an Irish master of dialogue at work. -- David Monagan ― Irish Examiner

So perfectly constructed it is hard to believe it is really just about two old school friends getting drunk, and drunker... [Love] seems to bottle what male friendship can be like. -- Chris Harvey ― Irish Independent

Here is a paean to all things Irish. Fans of [Doyle] will be glad to follow old mates Davy and Joe through a pub crawl that is both elegiac and hilarious.Washington Post

Sharp, funny... Easy to read, hard to forget. -- Teddy Jamieson ― Herald Scotland

A praise-song to the Irish pub... The reader is dropped into the familiar, perfect rhythm of Roddy Doyle's effortless dialogue...good humour and camaraderie. -- Erica Wagner ― Financial Times

He's a comic genius. -- Diana Hendry ― Spectator

No one does boozy male regret better than Doyle, and he's on typically fluent form in this slow-burn tale of two old friends... A narrative engine that Doyle has perfected over decades. -- Anthony Cummins ― Mail on Sunday

Book Description

A masterful novel about coming-of-age and finding love in Dublin's pubs, from the Booker-winning Roddy Doyle

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in appearance.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 December 2020
Sure the book will be great but very disappointed that it has arrived without dust jacket, just plain black cover. Will not be the gift I had anticipated.
