RARA-AVIS: O'Connell

Searching the arhives, as far as I can see, Mark Sullivan was the first one on the list - in 1998 - who mentioned Jack O'Connell. He did not get much support when he - repeatedly - recommended this author. I have just finished the first 2 Quinsigamond books (Box 9 & Wireless), and I'm wondering why mr. Sullivan didn't get more response. These books have both 'a dark and sinister atmosphere' - very much so - and they have through their protagonists Lenore (Box 9) and Hannah (Wireless) a tough and colloquial way of speach. I'm referring to mr. Doherty's definitions here - I think they're quite approprate. But my point is - I'm really enjoying these books. I don't often get to enjoy books like these.
