    One thought on “Himself”

    1. This is a beguiling, dark atmospheric and wondrous literary read interwoven with the supernatural and the fantastical It is a stunning debut from Jess Kidd that draws the reader into what is a spellbinding read A dark fairytale brimming with folklore, humour and flawless comic touches For me, it called to mind the talented Kevin Barry and other Irish writers, past and present The past gives us Orla s story and the present in the 1970s focuses on Mahony, her son It begins with the murder of teena [...]

    2. The dead are like cats, Mahony You of all people should know that They don t always come when they re called I added Jess Kidd s book when I first saw its deliciously creepy front cover and the striking title It had all the right ingredients Ireland during the 70s, magical realism, dry humour, gothic hints When the lovely Ireland group members chose it for our quarterly read, it was a perfect opportunity for me to start reading Plus, it came highly recommended by my good friend Maria n Chnoic so [...]

    3. I d rate this 4.5 stars Mulderrig is a place like no other Here the colors are a little bit brighter and the sky is a little bit wider Here the trees are as old as the mountains and a clear river runs into the sea People are born to live and stay and die here They don t want to go Why would they when all the roads that lead to Mulderrig are downhill so that leaving is uphill all the way Mulderrig is a small Irish village, a Brigadoon of sorts One spring day in 1976, Mahony arrives in Mulderrig f [...]

    4. 4.5 Magical and delightful, was not at all ready to leave this small Irish town nor these wonderful characters Mahoney, raised in an orphanage, come to Murdering to uncover the truth about the young mother he never knew He creates quite a stir with his Byronic good looks, sets hearts a quivering, but not all because many in this place are holding secrets and one is a murderer He meets some amazing characters, willing to help him with his quest the old Mrs Cauley, who was quite a stage sensation [...]

    5. He sees dead people.Yowza Yowza Yowza If ever a book could grab my attention right from the first page, it was this one For a long time I have yearned for an author like Jess Kidd to appear the ghosts of Dylan Thomas, Gabriel Garc a M rquez and James Joyce must surely have come to roost in her beautiful, mischievous mind.This magical, vengeful story reconnected me with my Irishness and might possibly have brought my dear mother, Kathleen, scurrying to read it over my shoulder she d have loved th [...]

    6. 5 Stars.Bewitching, Mysterious and Whimsical Himself by Jess is a spellbinding fairytale that intertwines the magical with the supernatural Its dark whimsy draws you in with its brilliance.Mahoney returns to Mulderrig, on Ireland s coast, as it s the place of his birth He was raised in an orphanage in Dublin and never knew his mother, having always thought he was abandoned As a young adult, he is given a photograph of his mother and him and discovers that he wasn t abandoned after all and thus s [...]

    7. Mulderrig is a place like no other Here the colors are a little bit brighter and the sky is a little bit wider Here the trees are as old as the mountains and a clear river runs into the sea People are born to live and stay and die here They don t want to go Why would they when all the roads that lead to Mulderrig are downhill so that leaving is uphill all the way Mahoney returns to Mulderrig, although he has no memory of being there, it was in Mulderrig he was born Raised in a Dublin orphanage, [...]

    8. 4.5 for this delightful, magical debut I just loved these characters, especially Mahony, who had been raised in an orphanage, comes to the Irish village Muldering from Dublin to find out about his mother s disappearance or death shortly after he was born.

    9. One day, a young Irish man comes sauntering into the town of Mulderrig, and he s on a mission You see, Mahony, was born in this town but was raised in an orphanage While living in Dublin, he recently learned that his mother disappeared in this town The town folk think he s a gobshite Well, just the men The women think he s dreamy, handsome with dark eyes and long hair, in need of a bath Let s just say when he arrives, all h ll breaks loose.Most of the town do not want him here Especially when th [...]

    10. This book is going straight onto my shelf of favourite reads I think I will put it next to Lincoln in the Bardo because the ghosts inside their pages have so much in common, and because both books just struck a chord in me and made for such great reading.In Himself we meet Mahoney, 26 years old, charismatic, very good looking and able to charm even ghosts with just a wink What he does to the female population of Mulderrig, a small town in County Mayo Ireland, is amazing I am pretty sure he has c [...]

    11. In a forest dark and deep, the murmuring trees keep their own counsel They know everything, as do the bees Mulderrig, Ireland Where sleep conjures dreams of screaming eels and snapping dentures Beware of spiteful wells, flying spiders, and meddlesome winds Note the creeping shadow who has a taste for religious paraphernalia You are about to enter a world of tricky knickers and wigs that tilt askew at alarming angles Be still The dead are drawing in The dead, wanting to be seen, needing to be hea [...]

    12. I almost didn t make it past the first sentence of this book, but I am glad I did The prologue is, fortunately, mercifully short and with a bit of magical realism at the end, it poses the questions Where did he go What happened to him and his family The rest of the book sets out to answer those questions.Mahoney is on a quest, and his destination is the village of Mulderrig in Ireland He is also a sensitive, so he sees things most other folks don t see, where sometimes the details come vivid and [...]

    13. I seem to be on a kick for reading books which take place in Ireland lately Not that I m saying that s a bad thing, but it s amusing that after reading The Heart s invisible furies, my mind seemed much well put together for this particular book The two don t share much else in common, but honestly, the charm of Irish writing is than enough to keep me paying attention.And Kidd definitely knows how to tell a story.I thought this novel had all the things I like in a book such as Irish folklore, a [...]

    14. For the dead are always close by in a life like Mahoney s The dead are drawn to the confused and the unwritten, the damaged, the fractured, to those with big cracks and gaps in their tales, which the dead just yearn to fill For the dead have secondhand stories to share with you, if you d only let them get a foot in the door.Darkly humorous, deviously textured and filled with a cast of quirky characters I won t soon forget, this novel has an almost mythical quality and it is a helluva of a good r [...]

    15. HIMSELF is one of the most unusual mysteries I ve read the experience was like getting pulled into a vivid 20th century Irish folk tale Set in the small village of Mulderrig, this wild story alternates between the 1970s and 1940s 50s Mahony grew up in a Dublin orphanage, with very few clues about his beginning When he finally gets a lead, 26 year old Mahony travels back to Mulderrig determined to find out what became of this mother, stirring up all kind of chaos in the process The book is full o [...]

    16. Things are all mysterious and magical in small town Ireland This book has flashes of The Sixth Sense with main character Mahoney pronounced MAH hinny by the narrator of my audiobook who sees the dead, everywhere he goes Unfortunately for him, the only ghost he really wants to see his mother s , eludes him Ghosts in this book are like cats they don t come when they re called They aren t particularly helpful They don t uncover crucial clues or whisper murderers names, though their presence is inte [...]

    17. This is a pretty good debut mystery novel set in Ireland in the 50 s and 70 s Mahony, a young man who grew up in a Dublin ophanage, returns to a small village in Ireland to find out what happened to his mother The tale is very atmospheric with delightful writing, memorable and quirky characters and a bit of the supernatural Mahony, as it turns out, can see and commune in some fashion with dead people Himself lost some points with me in the second half I started to lose track of all of the charac [...]

    18. It is a truth universally acknowledges that when the dead are trying to remember something, the living are trying harder to forget it.I can t believe this wonderful literary thriller was a debut novel I loved the lyrical writing, the quirky characters dead and alive and the magical realism sprinkled liberally throughout Be warned that although this is part black comedy, it is also filled with some of the most violent scenes I ve ever read If you enjoy Irish storytelling filled with supernatural [...]

    19. Himself started off with a bang and kept me engaged until the very end Abandoned in a Dublin orphanage as a baby, Mahony, now aged twenty six, receives a letter left for him long ago that hints he might not have been abandoned after all Returning to the remote coastal town of Mulderrig, in search of the raw truth about his mother, a profoundly complicated past rises and the local ghosts come out to greet him, giving the story an otherworldly spin Jess Kidd s rollicking debut is chock full of mag [...]

    20. Great way to start 2018 with a 5 star read Such a delightful, charming and magical book, a brilliant debut, hard to believe this is Jess Kidd s first book Set mainly in the mid 1970s, the main character Mahoney returns to Mulderrig, a small town on the west coast of Ireland, determined to find out what happened to his teenage mother Orla who abandoned him as a baby The characters, both living and dead, are brought to life so vividly and skilfully I loved old Merle Cauley Mrs Cauley , the cynical [...]

    21. The pipes sing about a land lost, about forgotten honor and wasted bravery They sing of sedge edged water and white skies, of the mountains and the sea, of those who are gone and those who never even were This book was a complete delight It s a literary mystery, small town social satire and dark comedy with beautiful language read with a variety of captivating voices by Aiden Kelly, the narrator of the audiobook.The prologue is set in Mulderrig, Ireland in 1950 and describes the murder of 16 yea [...]

    22. Oh my, what a delicious reading experience this was A debut novel Are you kidding me The writing was superb Lyrical, dark, quirky and funny.The characters are all a bit tongue in cheek and had that not been the case the tone of the book would have been a lot menacing.The drama plays off in an Irish village in the 1970 s where a stranger comes to town He is charming, and easy on the eye but very soon his reason for being there makes the villagers turn on him, and they are not playing around Pois [...]

    23. He walks through the sleeping town, sparking a cigarette with a tune in his mind His boot heels spin echoes across the empty streets and he begins to sing low in his fine singing voice The lyrics are pure, about love and sacrifice and good intent, but the tone in his voice makes the words dirty and hard Curtains twitch and young girls in soft sprigged nighties with brush gleaming hair look out dreamily The dead drift down through floorboards and up through flagstones and through windows and wall [...]

    24. A slow start to a mystery that takes place in a small, insular town in Ireland, Mulderrig, peopled by a cast with a surfeit of character And ghosts Lots, and lots of ghosts Of the cast, the two characters who really stood out to me were Mrs Cauley, a former actor, now an old woman with a penchant for wigs and whisky, and a wicked sense of humour, and Bridget Doosey, a woman who likes cats, and has an equally wicked sense of humour The man referred to by the title didn t make as much of a mark on [...]

    25. 4 stars It was great I loved it Loved the supernatural rich plot, the atmospheric quality and the characterization, but could have done without the graphic dog violence Do whatever you must to literary people, but please don t harm a hair on the head of a fictional dog Favorite Quote It is a truth universally unacknowledged that when the dead are trying to remember something, the living are trying harder to forget it.First Sentence His first blow the girl made no noise, her dark eyes widened.

    26. What a great debut novel for Jess Kidd The writing was 5 stars for me It was beautiful and almost poetic I was in total and complete awe with her writing Now I will say that the toggling around in time was a little chaotic for me since I listened to the audio, but her descriptive style had me mesmerized I also liked the mystery in the story and the characters There were some creative twists that made this novel so unique So, I am officially a fan of Jess Kidd and look forward to her next novel.

    27. I had two very conflicting instincts about approaching this book a contemporary mystery set in small town Ireland sounds ridiculously relevant to my literary interests, and magical realism is something I try to avoid at all costs Still, I thought I d give it a shot and hope my love of Irish lit would prevail Instead I think my dislike of magical realism won out.Here s what I don t like about this genre I realize this is a blanket statement and that there are exceptions I can even think of some m [...]

    28. I loved this It s gorgeously written magical realism that takes place in 70s Ireland, and the writing is truly phenomenal It s the type of book that you can sink into once you re in the narrative flow, it s difficult to surface and pull yourself out of the world And it s not just the writing The mystery behind Mahony s mother s disappearance begins to heat up over Mahony s stay in Mulderrig, which means there s a heart stopping climax that rivals any thriller Because this is set in Ireland and b [...]

    29. Stylish and well written, this is a sort of murder mystery set in a small town in Ireland in the 1950s and 1970s, with the difference being the main protagonist can also see all the dead people in the town as well Great characters and dialogue elevate this book from a mere murder mystery, and although I am not usually a fan of the supernatural, it didn t detract from this book I have heard this book described as magical realism I am still not sure what this means, but if all books in this genre [...]
