    1. An interesting short memoir, interesting often as much for what remains unsaid as for what is said The author grew up in Dublin with three brothers and two sisters, and parents who parsed out love Her mother was cursed with two funny sounding diseases, retinitis pigmentosis and the ever silly sounding paranoid schizophrenia, Of course this would impact everyones lives and of course the children, and the author, would have no idea why.Much is left unsaid in this story There are tales of joy and [...]


    2. The short and succinct memoir of a woman who experienced loss, neglect, and abuse Rohan describes growing up with five siblings and a schizophrenic mother in Ireland and a caring, if distracted and overwhelmed father sexual molestation by a friend of the family and then the slow deaths of both of her parents only three months apart This is a brutally honest memoir Her description of the loss of her father was so vivid, I cried fat teardrops recalling my own experience.



    3. I relished this short memoir for its language, honesty, and strong evocations of people and place I loved the parts that evoked the child most of us were, like the line that describes the author s first address as Munster Street, Dublin, Ireland the street name too much like monster And it was ominous when things got darker, but still stayed in a child s voice, as when she describes the disease taking her mother s sight as a fun to say degenerative disease, retinitis pigmentosa Later sections de [...]


    4. Well I just wrote a review of this for NetGalley, but then it was deleted So I will say again, in a shorter way, that this was beautiful It read like poetry It was a bit short for me, because I was so intrigued and wanted , and it is a short fiction piece.More of a 3.5 5 stars because of its length Still beautiful and worth the read.


    5. Such a beautifully written memoir, a poetic prose, with a remembrance on missed times and opportunities, of what goes unsaid Tears were brought forth by the author s talent, and I certainly felt for her.


    6. Heartwrenching and touching Out of Dublin shares the author s personal experience with the death of her loved ones and the trials she endured during the last months of her dad s life A great, short read that brings to light the death and sadness we all experience when loved ones pass.



    7. Copy provided by Netgalley Shebooks Wow, that was emotional I was not prepared for how much emotional punch such a short novella could pack The main character deals with the loss of her parents, sexual abuse in her past, and an overall disconnection from her family and the world itself Rohan s writing was poetic and was an integral part of the story itself I think she used the we as children phrase a bit much but I think she was trying to set up an image The reason I gave it 2 stars was because [...]


    8. Ethel Rohan certainly has a way with words In this short but deeply affecting memoir she can convey a whole scene, an emotion, with just a phrase or two She looks back on her childhood, the joys and pains of it, focussing very much on her parents, and the happy times the family shared, and perfectly captures the voice of an observant and perceptive child Sadly, there s the abuse she has to face, but even here her controlled use of language ensures that that the horror is implied rather than expl [...]


    9. Ethel Rohan has written a powerful book about her unhappy life She speaks of the hard life she led growing up and even after, it was filled with mental illness, not thinking she was good enough or pretty enough and living in a family of eight.This was a heart wrenching well written story of life of life and death Wonderful I received this book in exchange for an honest review


    10. This is a very short read It is a memoir of an author dealing with the death of her parents She reflects on her life and relates how her life has been affected by her parents, despite having emigrated to the US many years previously I would recommend this to anyone who is dealing with the loss of a parent.
