At high speed and with wicked humor, Emer Martin introduces us to a family unlike any other. Long after her husband is institutionalized, Molly moves her children from the west of Ireland to Dublin. She is following her eldest daughter Aisling --- her favorite, the beloved --- who is to attend college there. But one summer Aisling disappears. Fifteen years later, Molly persuades the youngest and most reliable of her five children, Keelin, to put her own life on hold to search for Aisling. Traveling the world with various of her siblings, Keelin learns that each is cursed with their father's affliction --- "the doubting disease," as they call it. In one way or another, each is paralyzed and compelled to perform irrational acts. In pursuit of her wild, elusive sister, whose personality defies categorization, Keelin takes on a hip and decadent Japan, a talk-show-worthy United States, and a surreal Central America. Many curious adventures, an uncertain reunion, and a stunning betrayallater, Keelin is forced to question the familial attachments that have always driven her. More Bread or I'll Appear casts a unique eye on the issues of gender, race, and class that are vital to contemporary culture. It is a story about family, an examination of the tyranny of genetic and emotional bonds.… (més)

A story about a dysfunctional Irish family. The main character searches the entire book for her sister but instead finds out how meaningless life is. She also starts to realize there is nothing, nothing but what is there. At times I found it hard to keep reading but the Irish dialect it's written in is interesting and a bit infectious. Although the story is similar to themes I have read in the past (books that have succeeded in certain ways, ways which this one failed). Think another book about a dysfunctional family written in a dark humorous way... but failing in keeping you interested in the storyline. The characters are interesting enough and I think that along with the writing style kept me reading until the end. Overall, not a bad read but also I wouldn't be giving a recommendation to anyone. I will suggest a pass on this one. ( )
