Maybe for readers that have never experienced eastern philosophy or religious teaching but I just couldn’t cope with another cliched quote.

In this unnamed city, to be interesting is dangerous. Middle sister, our protagonist, is busy attempting to keep her mother from discovering her maybe-boyfriend and to keep everyone in the dark about her encounter with Milkman. But when first brother-in-law sniffs out her struggle, and rumours start to swell, middle sister becomes 'interesting'. The last thing she ever wanted to be. To be interesting is to be noticed and to be noticed is dangerous. Milkman is a tale of gossip and hearsay, silence and deliberate deafness. It is the story of inaction with enormous consequences.

Such a depressing time for the youth of Ireland this story both shocked and made me laugh. The style of writing put me inside the head of this traumatized woman and gave insight to how we cope in extreme situations so that we can live day to day. Anyone interested in psychology would, I think, enjoy this book. The performance was great!

I like the toing and froing style of this book. Gradually bringing the story together. Fantastic reading by Laura Aikman.
