‘The Prisoner Of Brenda’ by Colin Bateman


‘Local, But Harsher Tone’
Score: 3/5

The Man With No Name is back. I’m in two minds about this book. On the one hand, it’s still nice to read bits about Belfast in a real book, not just one from the ‘local’ section. On the other… Well, I’m not too sure about the unreliable narrator in this book - it seems a little different from previous ones.

The mother jokes are still there, but maybe a little harsher. The tone though feels different. Unsettlingly so. Maybe that’s intentional.
