The protagonist, Israel Armstrong, is a very likeable character, harmless, except maybe to himself. There is plenty of local humour some of which may be a bit too close to the truth for comfort. Behind all the witty jabs there is a kernel of gravity. Sadly, I believe I have only one left unread in this series. In that one I hope Israel realizes that his landlady, George, is his perfect life partner. Sansom doesn't have a big following because it seems he writes for Northern Ireland readers. There are so many "local" connections, jokes, words, even mispronunciations, none of which are explained for anyone not in the know. Just knowing what they are talking about is a plus, and even this ex-pat didn't understand all the references. The story is a sort of satire, with an underlying serious message that is hard to pin down. I liked this one even more than the first one in the series. ( )

very light... amusing but insubstantial, which was what I needed at the time... ( )

I thought this was a clever, intriguing book that I enjoyed very much. Of course I didn't think so at first. In the beginning I thought the main character Israel Armstrong was nothing but a man who needed to get a life. But as I continued reading I changed my mind, for how else is a Jewish, English vegetarian supposed to feel after breaking up with his girlfriend in the northern-most of Northern Ireland? Now I have to buy the rest of the books in the series. ( )

"Here we are, then," said George, opening the creaking, paint-flaking, hinge-rusted, wood-rotting, brace-and-ledge door to the former chicken coop that was now home to Israel Armstrong (BA, Hons.), certainly Tumdrum's and possibly Ireland's only English Jewish mobile librarian.
