I like the straight forward way the author writes. It reads easy, and you don't have to go back and forth to figure out what he means about something. The Death of Pat Bannon by Kirk Bailey is quirky to say the least. At times its deeper than I was expecting with a character that's facing moral questions that the reader is forced to answer. The secondary characters added to the plot and the author writes well but I did feel like some of the dialogue was more like rehearsed speeches. I wont spoil anything but just say it's a fun read with delightful characters and a quirkiness that keeps you reading until the end.
