    "Cal" is a hard hitting, compassionate story about a young Catholic man caught up in the sectarian strife of Northern Irela

  2. says:

    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 the most dramatic of any book. I have read. The dilemmas and hardships Cal has to endure are tenderly expressed as he struggles to find his way in a country riven by sectarian violence and religious in

    A bleak portrait of a young Catholic man Cal living with his father in a Protestant Housing Development in Northern Ireland.

    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 mid 70's to early 80's was a time fraught with danger in Northern Ireland. As an expat living and working in

    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 humour as Cal waits each night to be fire bombed out of his home. The effect on the comm

    … 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.

  13. says:

    Compulsively readable as ever with MacLaverty. Underneath the deceptively simple language is a profound meaning and truth. The characterisation rings true and you can smell the atmosphere of the troubles on every page. Highly recommended.
