Strong and Poetic
The book is composed of four sections, all of which come together in the final sections and with surprise. Three characters, one from Syria and two from Ireland, all attempting to deal with pain and to find a sense of belonging. The language of the book is both poetic and truthful. I will listen again, as I'm aware that, like many good novels, 'From A Low And Quiet Sea', will reveal even greater depths second time round. catches the essence of Ireland in all its absurdity, confusion and love. Very well performed by all three readers.

Funny, sad, powerful
Three interweaving stories that conclude in a thin enough way. I think the point that stood out the most for me was how funny the middle story was, excellently told, of a young Irish man and his mundane life and how sad the first story was in its long quiet move from a town in Syria to a Greek island (and what that journey means). Very much recommend.
