Von überzeugt dass Mahonys Mutter ermordet wurde Das ungleiche Paar heckt einen raffinierten Plan aus um die Dorfbewohner zum Reden zu bringen Auch wenn einige alles daran setzen dass Mahony die Wahrheit nicht herausfindet trifft er in dem Ort auf die eine oder andere exzentrische Person die ihm hilft Dass es sich dabei manchmal auch um einen Toten handelt scheint Mahony nicht weiter zu stören Himself started off with a bang and kept me engaged until the very endAbandoned in a Dublin orphanage as a baby Mahony now aged twenty six receives a letter left for him long ago that hints he might not have been abandoned after all Returning to the remote coastal town of Mulderrig in search of the raw truth about his mother a profoundly complicated past rises and the local ghosts come out to greet him giving the story an otherworldly spin Jess Kidd’s rollicking debut is chock full of magical realism Irish folklore and devilish humor with a bit of romance adding the cherry on top The characters are well thought out and Kidd’s writing is intriguing I found myself cheering on Mahony and his band of lovely ladies as they unwind the layers of lies and deceit surrounding the mystery of his and his mother’s disappearance from MulderrigI thoroughly enjoyed Himself with its many twists and turns and recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great mystery allied with supernatural elements
