An insightful book about the ties that really hold families together
As with Going Back, her characters are full of life, and her dialogue brims with wit and emotion. This is an engaging read, and an easy one, but no less clever for it.
Each & Every One is a stylish read, a great plot with wonderfully colourful characters. A story with humour and fun, and a story with a message
Each and Every One is a smart book ... adult children learn to stand on their own two feet after the Bank of Mum and Dad goes under - it cleverly explores the broader impact of the recession
English has produced an engaging tale, peppered with sharp insights and a strong story arc . . . an easy read, but a clever one too that cements her reputation as a force to be reckoned with in the books market.
English writes well and with a keen sense of absurdity. The appeal of the book is the authenticity of its portrait of Dublin today ... [an] entertaining and lively novel.
Something of a moral fable, it's pacey, lively fun
The author criticises a media culture predicated on dizzying highs and terrifying lows . . . English skilfully weaves these insights into the story through her characters, helping to jolly along a predictable but readable plot.
This was a wonderful story, so well told. At times it's very funny, at other times it's heartbreakingly sad . . . I absolutely loved it
A fabulously unique idea and extremely well delivered by Rachael English
Funny, sad, ironic and warm. Right from page one I was engaged and settled down for a very contented read.
Rachael English has such an impressive way with words, her amazing and unique writing style is definitely part of the greatness of this story. If you haven't bought this book yet, you should.
