“Shadow Dancer” is kind of special for me; it’s my first book in English.
In my opinion this isn’t a great suspense thriller, but since I’ve always been interested in the whole “Irish Republican Army” versus England conflict, I like it some.
“Shadow Dancer” is an unpretentious and easy read that tells the sad story of an Irish woman who tries to cut relations with her IRA family in pursue of something better. I got a strange feeling while reading this book, a blend of beauty and sadness, like being listening to “street spirit [fade out]” of Radiohead.
