    I just read SIX three star novels in a row and here is NUMBER SEVEN which I am not going to finish because 219 pages of Paul Murray s extremely mild investment banker related humour is enough for me this year I would like to break the asphyxiating cycle of this middling 3 star morass by rating this one or two but I can t It s not bad, it s just not what I want It s extremely readable but after a while it s wait a minute yes no yes the prawn cracker effect again you eat and eat and you I just ...

    When the ship goes down, I want to be in Murray s skiff At least there will be laughter, love, generosity, poetry, and with any luck, a gulp of whiskey among us If you thought the financial meltdown and its aftermath was too complicated to understand, read Murray His account is a little like that fabled whiskey, warming and clear At the inevitable end, we wonder where our head was, to think we could carry on like that and not have a hangover The restaurant called Life is so loud, it takes When the ship goes down, I want to be in Murray s skiff At least there will be laughter, love, generosity, poetry, and with any luck, a gulp of whiskey among us If you thought the financial meltdown and its aftermath was too complicated to understand, read Murray His account is a little like that fabled whiskey, warming and clear At the inevitable end, we wonder where our head was, to think we could carry on like that and no...

    The good news is that the Murray s satire is funny, in places it is so funny that I was that odd commuter chortling away to himself The topic Murray picked is ripe for a tragi comedy, bankers working in Dublin post financial crises One in particular, Claude, on the run from parental disapproval, lives a life of total isolation outside of work and is therefore delighted when a writer approaches him to be the subject of his new novel.At its best the book does a great job of showing some of the ...

    You wouldn t expect to find much humour in an Irish investment bank during the demise of the Celtic Tiger, but Murray give us plenty When I started reading I thought, here we go another book about an author trying to write a book, but it quickly turns into something considerablyinteresting The plot is somewhat improbable and the protagonists have strange ideas about life, yet they somehow combine in a series of comically excruciating events.I m looking forward to the Mary Cutlass revie You wouldn t expect to find much humour in an Irish investment bank during the demise of the Celtic Tiger, but Murray...
