Price: $1.99
Something Like Ideal is the patchwork philosophy of a traveling busker, the inebriated Teague Grady. Drawn from his own hardship and confirmed by a summer spent observing a small town in southern Ireland, Teague unravels his thoughts on life in one spirit-filled evening with a lost lover. He introduces a motley ensemble of characters, including foul-mouthed rake Fin Larkin, insecure bartender Alan Brennan, the stunning world traveler Sara Doran, and dying pub patriarch Paddy Shannon, weaving fly-on-the-wall vignettes of their lives with his own lovelorn lyrical poetry to present a case for his worldview. A caustic drama, filled with dark humour, Something Like Ideal leaves open the slim possibility for hope.

    I read this book in just a few days, but could easily have finished it in one sitting. I couldn't help but love and root for the characters--even the despicable ones! I love this story. There were moments that made me laugh out loud, and moments that made me want to cry. This book has more to offer than some Bestsellers out there. I plan on reading it again.
