    The Dublin Saga Concludes

    There are few words that can explain how much I enjoyed this book. Edward Rutherfurd's writing is utterly captivating. The books of his that I have read I have loved every paragraph and chapter. The characters become so real to me that I feel like I am right there with them experiencing everything I read.

    The book is written in a way that appeals to me as a history ner

    The book is written in a way that appeals to me as a history nerd and the inner book nerd. I am Irish, so this book gives me an interesting
    look into where my heritage is and what I came from. The stories of the characters line up in a very pleasing way, and their stories are all 
    enveloping and well written. One of my favorite things about the book is how I think of Dublin. In the first section, Tara, I think of Dublin as 
    Dubh Linn. I see the words and know exactly what it is. It was the same when the transition from Tara to Vikings and the new Dyflin. It took
    me a few times reading Dyflin to make the transition complete, but it is still the same thing. The transition from a distant pagan island to
    Christian Ireland is also a very interesting aspect of the book. Well done Mr. Rutherfurd.

    Another wonderful story from Edward Rutherfurd.

    This is a very interesting view of the Irish history with England, as well as the Catholic vs Protastants. It will enlighten the reader of some of the problems resulting from these conflicts. I enjoyed the reading.

    Great Historical Novel

    This book is a great read! Although lengthy, it moves along and does not get boring. A lot of facts about Irish history were intriguing.

    A good page turning read

    Heart-breaking, but still very good. Ireland has such a dramatic history; yet visit Ireland and her people are some of the kindest, most welcoming. This book and Princes of Ireland give background to their history great and horrible. I enjoyed it, though at times it can become depressing. Interesting and eye-opening to read a book like this and then contemplate what European ancestors did to native populations around the world.

    Captivating

    Edward Rutherfurd does not disappoint. His novels are full of history,intrigue and adventure. He doesn't hesitate to captivate you with his easy flow of words, hooking you into the saga right to the end.

    Excellent books

    I have read both of the Irish books written by Rutherfurd and have enjoyed them. As an Irish Catholic I could not believe how ignorant I was about Ireland and its history. I plan on reading his other books as they are not only instructive but also entertaining
