summary Ç eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Naoise Dolan

An intimate bracingly intelligent debut novel about a millennial Irish expat who becomes entangled in a love triangle with a male banker and a female lawyerAva moved to Hong Kong to find happiness but so far it isn’t working out Since she left Dublin she’s been spending her days teaching English to rich children she’s been assigned the grammar classes because she lacks warmth and her nights avoiding petulant roommates in her cramped apartmentWhen Ava befriends Julian a witty British banker he offers a shortcut into a lavish life. 25 starsSo dreary definitely not exciting Exciting Times is told from Ava s perspective Ava is an Irish expat living in Hong Kong where she teaches English The story focuses on Ava s inner tortured thoughts and feelings as she feels the pull between relationships with English expat banker Julian and local lawyer Edith Ava does all the wrong things She can t commit to the one she loves and she sticks to the one she knows treats her poorly It s well written but I have no patience right now for self absorbed self loathing I think I m also probably a bit too old to relate to these characters sensibilities It took me way too long to read this relatively short book because my attention was easily diverted by other things As I say it s well written so I may simply be the wrong audience or this might be the wrong time Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for an opportunity to read an advance copy
