    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.

    Interesting book

    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.

    It a book about us all.

    I was entranced by the stunning contradictions in the character of Gypso Nolan. He combined cowardice and courage, stupidity and intelligence as the story progressed. His tragedy was to be dwelling in his less admirable character phases during challenging situations. What bad luck, because Gypso also displayed intelligence, or at least cleverness, and courage in other circumstances. Unfortunately the latter, being less critical, had no bearing on his worldly fate. I can't help but think that I and everyone else have these same contradictions, but somehow the timing of events in our lives matched more favorably with our intellectual and fortitudinal high tides. Gypso's contrasts amaze the author, it seems, but must have been drawn from self observation. How else could they have been so starkly drawn, but be so (to me) unconvincingly explained except for the author to have experienced them in himself, tried to explain them, failed an adequate accounting for them and finally accepted them as part of his version of the human condition. I had read the book many years ago, but I am still captivated by contemplating its meaning. To me it is not just a good story. Also imprinted on my memory are the opening description of the city street and rooming house, as well as the depiction of the fish and chips eatery scene. I felt like a fly on the wall, so vivid was the reading experience. No wonder John Ford dwealt on these scenes, too, in his film adaptation.

    Magnificently written!!

    This book is wonderful for readers of all ages. I read this book for a ninth grade honors geography class. Mr. O'Flaherty gives a marvelous depiction in this story of betrayal. I would recomend this book to anyone interested in Ireland, or even people who aren't.

    Well done Mr. O'Flaherty

    I read this book for a project in my Honors Geography 9 class. The book helped me because it told about the Irish Civil War, that stressed the geography theme of culture. The author's style of writing was very captivating. Through reading this book, I realized what a troubled country Ireland was. This book was written at about a 7th grade reading level, it was plenty easy.
