Although this book has important social commentary that isn't just relevant to "The Troubles", I found the style of writing very distracting and repetitive. I would best describe it as being able to listen to someone's mind -- a stream of consciousness. The author doesn't use names and I found the references to the main character's boyfriend particularly annoying. I had been looking forward to this book and even though it won the Booker for 2018, I was disappointed.

Any chance we could get this book in audio format?

On Nov 13, I donated to Cupertino library a paperback of this book, which I bought in Ireland the morning after Man Booker prize announcement. Since it was not published in US, is it available for other readers to borrow ?

This book won the Booker Prize so the library needs to order more copies (please and thank you).
