Item Details

"A tense, thrilling debut novel that spans two continents, from "a writer to watch out for" (Colum McCann). It's 1832 and Coll Coyle has killed the wrong man. The dead man's father is an expert tracker and ruthless killer with a single-minded focus on vengeance. The hunt leads from the windswept bogs of County Donegal, across the Atlantic to the choleric work camps of the Pennsylvania Railroad, where both men will find their fates in the hardship and rough country of the fledgling United States. Language and landscape combine powerfully in this tense exploration of life and death, parts of which are based on historical events. With lyrical prose balancing the stark realities of the hunter and the hunted, RED SKY IN MORNING is a visceral and meditative novel that marks the debut of a stunning new talent." --

Before one criticizes an author, let us agree to have a basic grasp of the language in use. Paul Lynch is the one and only author of Red Sky in Morning. An author who tosses off a description of rain as something “that knows nothing but the pull of the earth” makes reading a joy.

I must be in the minority, but I thought this was a terrible book. The writing is very tedious.The author was trying too hard to be profound in their use of language. Instead they ended up being really hard to read. Based on the reviews I was looking forward to it but I had to stop after reading just 20 pages. There are too may other books that are well written and enjoyable. There may be a good story there but author needs a better editor.

The writing in this book was beautiful and the story was compelling with a steady pace that never let up from beginning to end. The last 3rd of the book was almost impossible to put down. Beautifully written passages are too numerous to quote...I'd be quoting most of the book.
