review 1: A very interesting read. At first I was put off because it uses many expressions that are Irish with which that I'm not familiar. Once I overcame that, the story was most enjoyable. It's a look at the everyday lives of five or so random people who enroll in a night drawing class in a fairly small community. Told in increments by days of the week and class meetings the interactions of all are revealed. None of the class participants were acquainted with one another at the start but their lives are intertwined unbeknownst to them. Only at the end are their connections revealed. It's partly a romance but mostly a commentary on life and relationships. Well worth the time and effort.
review 2: I received this as a FR giveaway. This book was a fun, quick read
... more, with enjoyable characters. It's about an art teacher who offers an evening life drawing class, and the students and model that are in her class. It was interesting to see how the people were connected and how your actions can affect others. I thought the characters were well-developed and it was fun to read about them because they were all diverse. My only complaint is that I wish the ending were a bit longer and drawn out, so that we get some more time with each characters ending. Overall though, this was a book I really enjoyed, because of the diverse characters and I loved how it was set in Ireland. less
