Bloody Friday is inspired by the true events of Bloody Friday, from July 21, 1972; in Belfast, Ireland. It semi embarks you into the chaos and devastation from that tragic day, setting the tone for the rest of the story.
Jimmy Flynn, Patrick Kelly, Megan Doyle, and Norm Strom are the lead characters in this book. You do get a feel for them as soon as they are introduced and start to determine if you are going to like them or not. Personally, I would have liked to see a little more depth into these characters, and not just surface views. To me there was not enough coverage on the aftermath of the tragic events from that day, how it impacted their lives, and maybe even a little more on the tragicness of each of their lives.
Edmond did a good job of bringing light to this horrible day in history, but I stand firm that this could have had a little more depth.
