Review | Smile by Roddy Doyle

Title : Smile

Author : Roddy Doyle

Rating : 4 ⭐ / 5 ⭐

Genre : suspense

Blurb
Just moved into a new apartment, alone for the first time in years, Victor Forde goes every evening to Donnelly’s for a pint, a slow one. One evening his drink is interrupted. A man in shorts and a pink shirt comes over and sits down. He seems to know Victor’s name and to remember him from secondary school. His name is Fitzpatrick.
Victor dislikes him on sight, dislikes, too, the memories that Fitzpatrick stirs up of five years being taught by the Christian Brothers. He prompts other memories—of Rachel, his beautiful wife who became a celebrity, and of Victor’s own small claim to fame, as the man who would say the unsayable on the radio. But it’s the memories of school, and of one particular brother, that Victor cannot control and which eventually threaten to destroy his sanity.
Smile has all the features for which Roddy Doyle has become famous: the razor-sharp dialogue, the humor, the superb evocation of ado…

Review | This could be our future by Yancey Strickler

" This could be our future  review " Title : This could be our future : A manifesto for a more generous world
Author : Yancey Strickler

Genre  : self- development

Rating : 4 ⭐/5 ⭐
