Crazy For You, by Domhnall O’Donoghue

Aspiring actor Clooney Coyle befriends oddball Vonnie. When he promises they’ll be friends for life, she becomes obsessed leading to mayhem and murder…
Crazy For You is a wonderfully quirky crime thriller with a dark humour.
Clooney is a great character and so easy to like. He has a fab spark and really comes to life on the pages. Vonnie obviously has severe mental health issues and I felt a little uncomfortable when she was mocked. However her behaviour is extreme and from the beginning our sympathy is with others who suffer as a result of her selfishness and her eccentricity.
The style of writing is easy to read and the suspense grows as the two main characters become friends but we know how they each view the relationship. There is certainly a tension and sinister tone as we await Vonnie’s next escapade. She is ruthless and obsessed but also completely deluded which is very scary and Clooney doesn’t have a clue about the danger.
The main two are supported by a bright array of peripheral characters and I especially loved the loving relationship Clooney has with his parents. The dialogue is authentic and natural which brings the characters to life. I was swept away on Clooney and Vonnie’s turbulent journey but I wanted a little more from the ending.
Crazy For You is an enjoyable book with clever humour and wonderful lead characters.
I have previously reviewed Sister Agatha by Domhnall O’Donoghue (it was just brilliant!)
Crazy for You
  • ‘Genuinely hilarious, charmingly intelligent’ – The Irish Times​
  • ‘Assured, astute and wickedly funny’ – Woman’s Way  
  • ‘Witty and charming and very, very funny’ – The Irish Examiner    
When Clooney Coyle promises Vonnie Gallagher they’ll be friends for life, he has no idea what he’s letting himself in for. The lonely and eccentric Vonnie quickly becomes obsessed with the kind-hearted but insecure actor, and her misguided crush soon develops into something much more sinister, which leaves Clooney’s career in tatters.
But when fate takes a strange turn and elevates the pair into an overnight celebrity couple, Clooney must decide whether to embrace the fame he has longed for since childhood or end the ridiculous charade before Vonnie’s jealous – and murderous – inclinations spiral out of control.
