Excellent Irish Literature
This novel beautifully portaryed the color and flavor of Dublin in the 1920's. The suspense thrilled me while I read the book. I decided to pick it up because it was on the AP test I took in high school, so that tells you what some intelligent profs thought of it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I Chose this book to do a Geography assignment on the 5 themes of geography of another country. When I started to read this book I had no idea what kind of awakening I was in for. This book was great. The author did a fantastic job of description and did an even better job of how the Irish Revolutionary Army changed the lives of so many people in the Dublin area. He used Irish slang, which I thought made the book more interesting consedering the fact that the people were acting and talking just the way you would imagine Irishmen to do. It also gave me a great visual of the way the slums of Dublin might have looked in the early 1900's. Over all I thought that this book was fasinating and I would recommend it to any one interested in descovering what is behind the friction that is still in Ireland.Was this review helpful?
