For fans of Marian Keyes, Dolly Alderton and Holly Bourne, ALMOST LOVE is one of the most addictive and heartbreaking reads of 2018

'Breaks another boundary' Irish Times

'A must-read' Image

'Honest and poignant' Elle

'Intelligent and compelling' Daily Mail


When Sarah falls for Matthew, she falls hard.

So it doesn't matter that he's twenty years older. That he sees her only in secret. That, slowly but surely, she's sacrificing everything else in her life to be with him.

Sarah's friends are worried. Her father can't understand how she could allow herself to be used like this. And she's on the verge of losing her job.

But Sarah can't help it. She is addicted to being desired by Matthew.

And love is supposed to hurt.

Isn't it?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Powerful and intense, O'Neill is one of our most uncompromising authors. - John Boyne

A real, raw story of how a woman's yearning for a potent relationship can poison happiness but help her discover the shadowy parts of herself. Louise O'Neill will once again connect to the secret, intimate places of readers' minds and lives - Cecelia Ahern

With a pen sharp as needles, the author unpicks the kind of obsessive love to which nobody is immune: I would challenge any reader to turn the final page without having flushed, at least once, in recognition. Her gaze is unflinching but never cruel; we are invited to examine, but never judge. O'Neill is a vital and necessary presence in contemporary literature, and we are lucky to have her. - Sarah Perry

A bold, uncompromising depiction of obsessive love. Reinvents the template for the female protagonist. - Marian Keyes

'Superb pockets of relatable truths . . . one of Ireland's most astute social observers' - Irish Independent

'Breaks another boundary that women's fiction rarely approaches' - Irish Times

Intelligent, compelling, with considerable psychological depth - Daily Mail

Honest and poignant, Almost Love tells a story of love, of obsession and of reckoning with the common saying that 'if it doesn't hurt, it's not love - Elle

“Brilliant!!!”

Firstly, thank you to Quercus for the early signed edition!
I am a big fan of Louise's work and I admit I was a little worried that book three probably couldn't be as good as her first two...
But not to... More

“Perfect”

I absolutely love Louise O'Neill's books (Only Ever Yours is one of my most favourite books ever), so Almost Love had high expectations to live up to. It didn't disappoint.

Powerful, fiercely feminist,... More

“Visceral and beautifully written. This is classic O'Neill”

I received an ARC of "Almost Love" from the publisher. The below are my own views.

In some ways, Louise O'Neill's first foray into adult fiction is one in which, essentially, nothing really... More
