I reckon that this is the fourth time that I've read The Christmas Club since it was published in 2006 which says something about how much I love the bookThe narrative follows six characters two sets of friends Singer and Ronan from Belfast Dionne Oona and Melissa from Dublin and Jay Frisbee from England who by happenstance end up spending time together in the last fortnight of 1989 in the Pier House in the fictional Dulnadragh close to Letterkenny in the northern extreme of Donegal The house without any modern amenities becomes a character in itself and through their own discovery as well as with information provided by Manus owner of the house and landlord of the local pub they manage to find out a little of its history while enjoying the peace and tranuillity and wildness of the local terrain developing complex interpersonal relationships into the bargainI absolutely love the world that Price creates particularly during the first visit to Dulnadragh and one feels extremely envious as the characters 'get away from it all' losing themselves in the library of the old house exploring the immediate area and socialising in the nearby pub in a Donegal environment now completely changed indeed the effect of the Celtic Tiger is at the forefront of the conclusion of the book The career trajectory of a couple of the characters over the years is perhaps a little improbable but this doesn't take away for me anyway from the special narrative that Price manages to weave over the 13 years that the book coversA special and very moving book and one that is perfect for a read during those cold and dark December nights One that I definitely see myself coming back to again and again

My favorite aspect of this book was the portrayal of Donegal in the late 1980's and the main character Singer a photojournalist It depicts Ireland on the cusp of the Celtic Tiger the ensuing greed as well as the destruction this greed caused
