Reviews

A dark, powerful tale of survival, morality and loyalty * Scotsman * A clever, entertaining and engaging piece of writing ... very carefully composed and gradually seducing its readers with its sense of fun, detail and, as appropriate, seriousness. -- Robert Dunbar * Irish Times * The Bombs That Brought Us Together has all the warmth and humour of Mr Dog whilst also dealing with some pretty heavyweight issues, including immigration and cultural identity ... Phenomenal * Sarah Crossan * I loved When Mr Dog Bites and have been wondering what he would do next. And it's utterly different. But equally remarkable ... * Bookbag * In this novel Brian Conaghan shows us that he is absolute master at creating believable, funny, brave and vulnerable young male characters * School Librarian * This accomplished new novel establishes him as a major talent. It's incredibly powerful and thought-provoking on big issues such as nationalism, war and refugees, and poses some challenging moral questions. It's also brilliantly funny with characters that you will really root for. * Editor's Choice, Bookseller *
