    "Cal" is a hard hitting, compassionate story about a young Catholic man caught up in the sectarian strife of Northern Ireland in the 1970s. It's a good psychological study of 19 year old Cal, whose nauseous reaction to a brief stint working at an abattoir mirrors his increasing repulsion at the help he gives the Irish Republican Army with some of its terrorist operations. Cal regrets his participation but is

    This is a brilliantly constructed story set in the recent history of the Troubles that have beset the Irish peoples. Everyone is real as is the action. Cal's struggles are painful to read and the ending of this book, is abrupt and yet one of th

    A bleak portrait of a young Catholic man Cal living with his father in a Protestant Housing Development in Northern Ireland. Cal's life is one of poverty, living on the dole and going nowhere fast. Cal is involved on the fringes of the IRA but an act of violence wants him away from the conflict.

    Well writ

    As the son of Irish Immigrants, I felt the sadness and frustration of Cal as he tries to make something of his life despite being tormented and harassed both by the British invaders and his own Irish peers. Heartbreaking.

    Interesting personal view of the difficult life for a young man during this time in history in Ireland. Ends like there should be a sequel.

    The elements that deal with ordinary life in the Troubles are convincing and make this a worthwhile insight. It should be good as Mr MacLaverty has the personal experience to draw on. A very good description of working class life. Think 'Kes' but without the AK47s.

    There are some moments of jaw dropping, jet black

    … this love story is flawlessly executed and should lead the reader to McLaverty’s short stories. Gripping in it’s emotional range and power. Superior in every way to the Helen Mirren film itself a work with A level production values as had LAMB.

  12. says:

    A thoughtful,empathetic , unsettling and sometimes an uncomfortable read demonstrating so very clearly that nothing is black and white. I first read this twenty years ago and it has lost none of its poignancy.
