Eureka Street Belfast, Chuckie e Jake, protestante il primo, cattolico l altro, sono legati da una profonda amicizia Chuckie, antieroe grasso e sempliciotto, riesce a compiere mirabolanti imprese commerciali grazie a progetti tanto fantasiosi quanto ridicoli Jake, invece, nonostante la sua scorza da duro, un inguaribile romantico e non cerca denaro e ricchezza ma un a che gli riempia la vita Sullo sfondo i conflitti irrisolti del paese che balzano brutalmente in primo piano quando un attentato sconvolge l atmosfera bislacca e farsesca che domina il racconto Poi la commedia della vita cancella il sangue e le vicende improbabili e sgangherate di Chuckie e Jake tornano a dominare le pagine del romanzo.

    When I was 17 I was going to accept a summer work offer from a farmer in Londonderry I m not sure to remember properly what I was supposed to pick up in Northern Ireland Might have been cucumbers Unfortunately at that time my knowledge of the English language was pretty low, so I thought I would have picked up watermelons known as cocomeri in Italy And I was wondering a lot about that task Perhaps Northern Irish watermelons were smaller than the ones growing up under t...

    Having lived in Ireland for over 17 years, I ve always made a point of reading virtually any book by either a well known or new writer from this country Having said this, Eureka Street was recommended to me by a Polish friend.

    All stories are love stories is the first sentence of this book It s not a love story in the traditional sense but a delicious tribute to the city of Belfast In Chapter 10, McClaim Wilson writes, cities are the meeting places of stories and that is exactly what this book is about Set in the mid 1990 s, when the troubles of Norther Ireland were at a fevered pitch, Jake, a roug...

    The title couldn t beprecise, as this is truly a depiction of contemporary Belfast that is like no other as far as I know It lacks sentimentality to the point where terrorist bombings are framed by cynical love scenes A refreshingly, humanly complex treatment of politics on an individual level.

    I joined Goodreads after a bad experience with a collection of loosely tied short stories that shall remain nameless That book hit me over the head with a bat, kicked me in the gut, drove over me and dropped what was left in a frozen river from a tall bridge It was a formative experience, but at the moment I hated it so much so much fiercely, with passion And on top of that I thought it was pretty shitty the proportion quality effect it had on me was completely off So I told myself never I joined Goodreads after a bad experience with a collection of loosely tied short stories that shall remain nameless That book hit me over the head with a bat, kicked me in the gut, drove over me and dropped what was left in a frozen river from a tall bridge It was a formative experience, but at the moment I hated it so much so much fiercely, with passion And on top of that I thought it was pretty shitty the proportion quality effect it had on me was completely off So I told myself never again never again to pick up a book based on titles, covers and blurbs Viva goodreads and previous opinions The problem of that being, I would have missed this book too.Curiously, my love for Eureka Street didn t bloom overnight In fact, after finishing it, I thought it was good enough, but the plot is not exactly believable and I was expecting it to look cheap in hindsight What happened, instead, is that it...

    I loved this book I loved Jake Jackson and Chuckie Lurganthan I ve loved any other fictional characters in a while I loved RMW s beautiful and sharp and inventive prose I loved the story itself and the beautiful and conflicting insight into Belfast and the insider s take on sectarianism There is one chapter that contains muchviolence a bombing than the rest of the novel and because of that, I was actually breathless and out of sorts for a while after I read it not entirely bec I loved this book I loved Jake Jackson and Chuckie Lurganthan I ve loved any other fictional characters in a while I loved RMW s beautiful and sharp and inventive prose I loved the story itself and the bea...

    Having been high on my TBR list for quite a while, I m now feeling a little disappointed with this book Well written, yes, insightful, yes, amusing, yes So what went wrong About a third of the way in, the one liners were becoming wearisome When I was feeling the need of a story, suddenly one emerged, but 100 pages on it was becoming tiresome too.Or maybe I can just see myself in the 90s, just like Jake, turning off the radio when the local news bulletin came on Fair criticism of us it is ...
