Reviews

Be warned. MacMahon subtly weaves her readers so tightly into her story that when she rolls out her shattering ending it's best to be alone. Stave off the tears if you can: I was a wreck - Sunday TimesWhen you have long forgotten many other fictional lovers, there is something about Addie and Bruno, their past and their world, that will not go away - Maeve Binchy, The Irish TimesAn exceptional novel . . . It is truly a story for our time - Irish IndependentKathleen MacMahon's prose could not appear more effortless or beautiful . . . The twist in this tale is utterly unexpected and satisfyingly unpredictable . . . A bittersweet novel that will no doubt become a book-club darling - Sunday IndependentThis is a love story like no other - MirrorThis is an outstanding debut novel which will linger long in your mind - Red MagazineSometimes you read a book that takes your breath away - this was the book . . . This Is How It Ends grabs you very gently at the beginning and urges you to continue, it wraps you up in its charm and leaves you bereft (in a good way). An emotional rollercoaster of two people thrown together, at a strange time in a less than ordinary way, I defy you not to be moved - Woman's WayThroughout the book, the narrative remains both beautiful and understated - and is perhaps all the more dramatic for it - Fabulous Magazine
