The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney

The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney

When a strange man breaks into Maureen’s home she does the most logical thing and bops him over the head with a religious statue.

That makes a bit of a mess so she calls her ganster son Jimmy to clean it up. Thus starts the wheels on this book.
Everyone gets involved, either by choice or chance.

Ryan, a fifteen year old drug dealer and his abusive, alcoholic father Tony.
Georgie, the prostitute that lived with the dead guy. She finds herself hiding out in a cult, pregnant and still missing the guy. She can’t stop asking those questions though..
The nosey next-door neighbor who loves to stir the pot. And take advantage of any man or boy when she gets the chance.

I was totally sucked in by the writing and language. I even expected my husband to speak with an Irish brogue at one point when I was knee deep in the book. So my verdict came up with extremely readable for the nosey in us…

But I did feel like at times it drug out and made me want to paint the kitchen.

3 stars.

Booksource: I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for review.
