Ray Ryan

By Aidan Riley

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆ 

Aiden Riley’s RAY RYAN is a coming-of-age novel for a lad from Nottingham, England, working through a turbulent past and encountering a lot of obstacles in life. The narrative is very colloquially British, meaning, among other things, you occasionally get weirdly inverted sentence orders, i.e. “She came over, smiling she was.”

Last Autumn

They were married for a stretch, and the story jumps around in time to depict their first meeting, the breaking up of their relationship, and their ultimate connection to one another. Beyond that, however, nothing really occurs except for their many arguments and conversations set against the lovely backdrop of the Pacific Northwest.
