The Law of Dreams - Peter Behrens

This novel tells the young life of Fergus. Fergus is a young man running to escape the famine in Ireland to a place of hope, dreams and food. Yet Fergus doesn't know where England is yet alone America.Through the novel we travel across rural Ireland, the dark streets of Liverpool and across the sea to the land of hope, America. The novel is filled with fanastically vivid descriptions. In a few places I found that I was losing interest, yet then I was pulled back.In my opinion it should have been shorter, it went on for just that bit too long.
