Today I am reviewing Belfast Girls by Gerry McCullough another writer from the Night Publishing home.
Before I began I was looking forward to reading about a culture I know nothing about and I wasn’t disappointed. Gerry gave me a wonderful, fresh look into Ireland and its people and regardless of the different expressions and ‘language’ I found this a smooth and easy read. In fact it was nice to have a change of scene.
The story starts off with a bang the way I like it and then eases into the childhood of the three Belfast Girls, how they met and then how their lives unfolded. The story building with love, drug gangs and fashion until it reached the crescendo which was the action filled beginning.
Yet it didn’t end here. As the girls lives went in different paths, their stories still mingled together directly and indirectly in a clever and page turning way... the biggest part which had me wanting more was, will Sheila and John finally get together and what will happen to Phil? These questions that needed answers had my turning the page. I could give you the answers to these questions but that would be giving too much away. J
Belfast girls has action, angst, fashion and love and would appeal to anyone interested in a good romance with other exciting elements mixed in.
