5.0 étoiles sur 5 A memorable story 25 février 2014
Format:Broché
It makes my day when I find myself blessed with a memorable and hilarious story. The Misremembered Man turned out to be one of the stories that alters my thoughts and feelings for the better whenever I think about it. I enjoyed virtually every part of it. The characters are very true to life with challenges, fears, hopes and dreams that are so real. They actions are real too, which all combined with the excellent narration and plot to make this book the wonderful story that it is. I came to the last page ruing why it ended to fast. here are few stories like The Kite Runner, Water for Elephants, Flash of the Sun, that left me feeling that way.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A memorable book - not to be misremembered! 8 décembre 2011
Par Meg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is a very enjoyable read - one of sharp contrasts. In fact I found myself dreading the chapters dealing with the orphanage. Thankfully the author used descriptive but not excessively graphic scenes to portray the horrors of those institutions. And she balanced it with delightful humor in the chapters about Jamie's adult life. The characters are well drawn; the best of which is Rose McKadden. I laughed out loud at some of her dialogs and learned a great new word..."And it's a terrible thing when a body is incapissitated in such a way." That one line was worth the whole book!

I regret that the author didn't use more Irish idioms and that from a purely practical point of view the story is rather unbelievable. But it has a sweet, feel-good ending which is irrestible. In short, I laughed and cried - it's a good book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A good read... 22 juin 2008
Par Mary S. Long - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The Misremembered Man is a charming yet harsh portrait of Ireland and some of it's characters, mainly a man and a woman whose younger lives shared a common bond, oppression. This tale is engrossing although a wee syrupy at times, and here and there are touches of humor that are in sharp contrast to the lives of these two people. The author builds the characters well, then plops them in the middle of life in the small towns of Ireland. You might feel the final chapters will bring a heartwarming predictable ending that you hoped would happen, but the writer surprises you....worth the time to curl up on a comfortable sofa and read the day away.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A top pick for readers seeking a well-written period piece. 10 août 2008
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Though he was resigned to a life of miserable loneliness, some hope still remained for Jamie McCloone. "The Misremembered Man" is the story of two opposites. One is the rugged Jamie, with his cruel history of orphanhood and a sad life; the other is Lydia, a cleanliness next to godliness type, who lives under an oppressive mother. They meet through the newspaper and an intriguing romance begins to bud, in this touching story of companionship set in rural Ireland's darker times. A top pick for readers seeking a well-written period piece.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book, excellent writing! 2 mai 2012
Par Kristy Scott - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Spoiler Alert: I got this book because I like books set in Ireland, and the synopsis sounded interesting. I was not expecting to be so profoundly touched by the plot. It will stay with me for a long time. I know it sounds trite, but this book was one of very few I have ever read that had me laughing out loud at Jamie's neighbor Rose or various antics going on in the character's lives, and then sobbing with emotion when it described Jamie's sweet adoption story and his later deep sadness, knowing what he had endured as a child. I have to disagree with reviewers who said the ending was bad or not positive. I thought it was the very best possible ending, and was extremely happy to see it turn out the way it did. After all, Jamie wasn't necessarily wanting a wife; he was wanting love, connection, and an end to his lonely, hopeless existence. Lydia and her truth was just what he needed. Plus, it hinted at another possible love interest for him in the future, leaving his story open-ended and full of hope.Extremely touching and well-written, I would recommend this book highly.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The thesaurus is not always your friend. 7 mars 2013
Par Leslie Truver - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I'm about halfway through the book, and I don't know if I'll finish it. The story is mildly interesting, and the characters, though they're unoriginal and their dialogue is almost offensively cartoony (another reviewer called it "leprechauny" and I think that's perfect) are just appealing enough that I kind of care what happens to them.

The writing, though, is more excruciating the longer I read. Every single sentence is overwritten. Almost never does anyone "sit," or "eat," or "look," or "walk," or "go." Instead everyone has to elaborately, fancifully, evocatively, expansively, with many adjectives and adverbs and commas, go about their most mundane actions within a rich tapestry of verbiage, drenching the reader in a reverie of depth and meaning.

LIKE THAT. THE WHOLE BOOK IS LIKE THAT.

All the characters, all their actions, everywhere they are and everything around them. All in twice as many words as necessary, except when McKenna uses three times as many words, or more.

They're farmers and pub keepers and small town old schoolmarms. Simplicity is their milieu.
You are not writing in the 19th century, and even if you were, you are not Henry James.
Trust your story and don't hide it behind overwrought wordiness. Pare it down.
