Secondary characters were also three-dimensional, particularly Podsy who reminded me of friends I had. I really enjoyed how the plot progressed; lots of great foreshadowing and hints as to what was coming. I was well and truly hooked…a brilliant read for those who want to curl up with a thrilling and chilly story. The story is not without light-hearted moments; Aidan's sometimes black sense of humour provides relief from the intensity of the plot.
This is Darragh's first Young Adult book and would have appeal for disciples of this genre. I would have given the novel much more than five stars if I could have.
This is one of the best supernatural stories I have read. I was deeply touched by Aidan Flood: Teens and adults will fly through pages. I highly recommend Shiver to all readers; this is a fabulous novel to buy for someone. A famine backstory adds subtext and texture. His writing transported me to a very unnerving place in Ireland… The story touches on Irish history and folklore, and has some very surprising twists.
If read in a classroom it would raise healthy discussion; I found it thought provoking on serious matters like suicide, bullying, revenge. Characters are fully formed and support the main character well.
Darragh: My Story - Darragh O Se, Ewan MacKenna -
The story itself rattles along a fair clip with plenty of tension and twists and feints, the dialogue is spot-on and there are some nice observational touches…an interesting and entertaining story that spins a unique take on the genre and is a must for those who enjoy their crime fiction with a satirical twist. Thanks to snappy, darkly funny prose and a willingness to move the plot along quickly, Even Flow is a consummate page-turner.
It asks interesting questions about vigilantism and whether it can ever be justified.

The 3W Gang is an intriguing creation — a sort of Baader-Meinhof urban guerrilla unit for a new generation. Darragh McManus is able to construct a well written and endearing yarn. The plot is well-executed and manages to illuminate all sides of the argument Even Flow is a good story, and more than that it has an original execution that makes it worth the price of purchase Evoking the clipped style of Elmore Leonard, Even Flow is marked by its filmic descriptions.
Coming in at fast-paced pages, Even Flow is a quick read…a short, sharp shock. The second half of the story is especially strong as the action, dialogue and politics all get ratcheted-up, and it has a very nice noir ending I live in the west of Ireland and am currently working on more Young Adult stories.
