As other people have mentioned, Into the Forest is similar to Patrick McCabe's The Butcher Boy, without the humour. For some readers, that might be a plus -- it is a serious subject, and Ms. O'Brien treats it seriously, and well. But for me, it is lacking somewhat in humanity, especially as the story is set in Ireland, a country that prizes its sense of humour highly. If you can, find the recorded version with Stephen Rea, who adds a gentle wryness of his own.

A story of a very unbalanced mind & a series of horrific acts Could not finish it only skimmed the latter sections, found it very disturbing. Irish writers I have read seem to have great humor coupled with graphic descriptions of horror, this book had no humor.
