    1. Deirdre Quiery’s novel is set in 1970s Belfast; a particularly horrific time in the history of the Troubles.Centred around two families on opposing sides, it features William and Eileen and their two sons Cedric and Peter. William and Cedric run a taxi business which is nothing more than a cover for their real murderous business. Eileen knows nothing and asks no questions. Peter, still in education and hoping to become a doctor, is in danger of being dragged into the family ‘business’.On t [...]

    2. The story follows two families from opposite sides of their community, and seeks to explore their motivations, weaknesses, and humanity. It neatly shows how two families from the same community, so divided from each other, are linked in ways they couldn’t imagine.What struck me most about this book, is that despite describing horrific events happening during a violent and turbulent moment in history, it is not judgemental, and doesn’t take sides. There is no sense that the author wants to te [...]

    3. THE CONFESSIONAL DOOR CLOSED " HE BLESSED HIMSELF" AND IN THE DARKNESS WHISPERED TO THE PRIEST : FATHER GET ME A GUN :Deidre quiery takes us to west Belfast under the shadows of the black mountain to the crumlin road where the sectarian troubles are escalating in 1972 and people are scared and warie of black taxis in case they carry killer's who snatch anyone who catches there eye and women who fraternize with soldiers are strapped to lampposts and tarred - feathered ,roots-bombs going off nearl [...]

    4. This is an interesting book - its portrayal of growing up in Belfast in the 1970's is fascinating and it makes an extremely good setting for a story.I think it did lack background. The violence, reprisal killings and beatings, soldiers with their rubber bullets and tanks were part of everyday life for people who lived in certain areas. Younger readers may not really know anything about this - particularly if they aren't Irish. Not that I would want a history lesson, I just felt a little context [...]

    5. I am very impressed by this debut novel by Deirdre Quiery. It is well crafted, with a cast of believable, if not always likeable characters.It is a story across several very disjointed families set at the height of the sectarian violence in Belfast in the 1970s.When I saw the chapter headings I expected a book set over a couple of weeks in early 1972. However the story manages to go much deeper than this, with clever use of flashbacks to help develop the back-story.My thanks to Netgalley and the [...]

    6. A very well written account of the Troubles but I must admit, at times I found myself crying. The characters were believable, although not all endeared themselves to me. A very thought provoking read.

    7. “The truth is past all commiseration” (Maxim Gorky)Deirdre Quiery is a very fine writer indeed. There are some wonderfully poetic and lyrical descriptions in this novel, even during scenes which at first glance you'd think wouldn’t warrant them - yet they work. There is also a lot of horror – the horror of how violence can be almost normalised in a society at war with itself. Set in 1970s Belfast, I certainly learned a lot about what it must have been like for ordinary people caught up i [...]

    8. Eden Burning, by Deirdre Quiery, is set in early 1970’s Belfast, and brought home many memories. I was raised in the city in this troubled time, although not around the inaccurately named peace line. My home was in a newly built suburb on the opposite side of town. From the Castlereagh Hills I could look down over the city and see the Cave Hills beyond. I would hear the deep boom of the bombs but knew only a few who were injured or killed. It wasn’t until I went up to the university that I m [...]

    9. Although I did not think this book was terribly well written and some of the situations, particularly the ending, bordered on the farcical I very much enjoyed this book.It might not have been great literature but for me it was a great read.I think the book will work well with Belfast readers of a certain age as its esoteric nature will be familiar to us.It certainly caught the zeitgeist that prevailed in 1972 Belfast and I well recall the Saracen armoured cars, the tarring and feathering of youn [...]
