Opposite Worlds is the follow-up to Eugene's novel Ghosters, which tells the story of Frank Walsh from the age of twelve to twenty-five. In that novel, having lost his faith, Frank leaves the seminary, home and family, and goes to London to forge a new identity. Opposite Worlds finds Frank alone and lonely in London, having been jilted by Marina, his Yugoslav girlfriend, on their wedding day. On the rebound from this, he has a passionate affair with Kalli, a gorgeous Greek singer and belly-dancer, who is a student in his class at the school in Soho where he teaches English to foreign students.

Her name is Mary, he contrives to meet her and she falls in love with him.

Chapter one is quite a rollercoaster read. It cleverly takes the reader straight into intrigue mode. You can't help but want to know more. We dive into the world of the main character Frank Walsh. The reader is taken on an emotional journey with him, through him.
I personally did at times struggle a little to continue hence the 4 stars, however that may have more to do with just me than this well written book
In its entirety the book is quite relatable and very touching. ( )
