Danny Williams didn't mean to be a lawyer, but somehow he is -- and for up to eighteen hours a day. He's well paid, home owning, and twenty-seven but is also overworked, lonely, and frequently stoned. The plan was to leave the troubles of a small town in Northern Ireland for the big city in England, but one evening an old school friend, Geordie, bursts into Danny's shiny new life. On the run from a Loyalist militia, Geordie brings everything Danny thought he had left behind and dumps it on his doorstep. With infectious wit and energy to burn, Utterly Monkey is a searing, fiercely funny, and ultimately redemptive novel about surviving an office job, outwitting the bad guys, and, hopefully, getting the girl.… (més)

Always a sucker for an Irish writer, I picked this book up at least a year ago, maybe two. I finally got to reading it a few weeks ago. Sadly, I came away disappointed. It was a very slow start, then a fast-paced middle and a weak ending. Characters weren't developed much, but there was hope for the plot or the "feel" of the locations. But, that puttered out as the climax approached. ( )

This book follows the life of Danny Williams over a very hectic 5 day period set in London and the fictional town of Ballyglass in Northern Ireland. It all starts when old school friend Geordie turns up on his doorstep unexpectedly. He had to get away from some trouble back home in Northern Ireland so Danny agrees to let him stay for a while until he can sort something out. When he was young, Danny was known for wanting to do things the right way but he now works for a big city law firm where conscience is a four letter word (I wish it was then it would be easier to spell). He gets a reminder of it from beautiful young trainee Ellen, whom he's roped in to help on a due diligence he's been lumbered with, and starts to re-assess his priorities in life.

Written along the lines of a Nick Hornby story, though not as accomplished (but to be fair this is his first novel). It contains some fun characters and plenty of humour, often of the dark variety. I will certainly read another offering of Nick Laird's if and when it becomes available as I think this is a promising debut. ( )

Zadie Smith's husband and a very good writer. An unlikely story (for me) about two Irish boyhood friends and an IRA-type plot and a bored lawyer who falls in love with a black girl. He's very talented. ( )
