"Daniel Kelly, a talented young swimmer, has one chance to escape his working-class upbringing. His astonishing ability in the pool should drive him to fame and fortune, as well as his revenge on the rich boys at the private school to which he has won a sports scholarship. Everything Danny has ever done, every sacrifice his family has ever made, has been in pursuit of his dream. But when he melts down at his first big international championship and comes only fifth, he begins to destroy everything he has fought for and turn on everyone around him. Tender and savage, Barracuda is a novel about dreams and disillusionment, friendship and family. As Daniel Kelly loses everything, he learns what it means to be a good person - and what it takes to become one."

Journal Entry 2 by wingDelphi_Readerwing at Δελφοί - Delphi, Fokida Greece on Friday, June 28, 2019
I vaguely remember reading Barracuda years ago in Greek and now I read it in English, but while I finished it in three afternoons, I didn't enjoy it much.

I would have to write many spoilers to analyze why is that, so I'll restricted my comments by saying that this book had potential to be much better, but I think the author tried to touch on many different themes without even scratching the surface. Furthermore, there is lots of repetition, a weird narration system, and characters who are not very plausible and/or likeable (including the main character!)

Not a terrible book but on my opinion not that good either. Maybe a better editing and half the size would have done the trick...

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of.

**** Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option. ****
