Also spared is Ordinary Decent Criminals by an American woman named Lionel Shriver’ Guardian. This is a streetwise book, inasmuch as Shriver, an outsider, pretends to an insider’s authority on the situation she portrays. That she carries it off as well as she does, particularly at the level of personal relationships, counts as an achievement’ Irish Press. This is an exceedingly powerful, inspired novel.

Ordinary Decent Criminals: A Novel. Ordinary Decent Criminals - Lionel Shriver. For ten years, Estrin Lancaster has fled Philadelphia. From the Philippines to Berlin, she’s been a traveler without a destination, an expatriate without a motherland.

I love Lionel Shriver's writing and had Ordinary Decent Criminals on my wish list but struggled to get it until I found it by chance on Kindle. Yes, parts of it are slightly out of reach of my intelligence but I like the stretch and yes I was glad of the glossary for all the troublesome terms. As Lionel Shriver herself acknowledges half way through the book, saying the North was a tiny, exclusive Hell: only one and a half million people on earth would get your jokes. So probably writing a book full of jokes about the North designed to offend and alienate all of those one and a half million people in equal measure was never going to end well.

One difficult book to read but as poetic as it is frustrating. Shriver has much to say, as she honestly admits, and what she had to say is delivered with machine gun accuracy. Suffering for suffering's sake is so Catholic. Righteousness and bigotry so Protestant. One gets a huge dose of both in this book. Not too mention more about the Irish Troubles than one ever cared to know, yet compelling enough to keep watch all the way to the conference and beyond. This is the one book I will probably read several times in order to absorb all what Shriver has revealed and shared. My own journey similar in some ways, word for word; yet, more complexity than even I have created in my own world.

Clearly the author had an Irish Catholic lover who influenced her in his favor. She saw only one side of the Irish 'problem' which is a basic ongoing religious war between the north and southern Ireland. The northern Protestants have lived in Ireland for many many generations and are as Irish as the Dublin Catholics who would love to continue the 'Troubles'. Still worth 4 stars for being well written

I've read several of Shriver's novels, and enjoyed them all very much. I could not get into this book at all. I read the first chapter, and was completely confused. I started on the second chapter, hoping for some clarity and ah-ha moments. Instead I was faced with all new characters and more confusion. I gave up halfway through chapter two.
