Listening out for the Milkman

Difficult or not, there was an unequivocal admiration for Milkman at Inkwell Readers Group. How though, does this translate to an audio experience? One of our readers, Katie, reflected on this. 

It was almost too intense listening to just one character, not forgetting how claustrophobic the setting is in itself anyway. What compels you though is the narrator’s humour, combining with her subjective experience of this environment, as she depicts what seems like, a whole society with its multiple and conflicting political factions. It’s remarkable therefore how it’s all channeled through her consciousness. The book then, is not just an education into the troubles of Northern Ireland, but troubled states beyond.
