    Irish History in a Novel

    Currently reading this book, after reading Flanagan's 19th & 20th century era novels set in Ireland. Excellent command of the language, highly descriptive, gripping connection of reader to characters.

    A very difficult read

    I found this to be informative and insightful about the Irish, but be prepared to read slowly and carefully. Perhaps my opinion is clouded by the fact I thought I had used a Barnes & Noble gift card to order the book, and when I attempted to read it after a long flight to the Caribbean, I could not open it without entering into the Nook the credit card number by which I had ordered the book! Needless to say, I had no idea what number to fill in and took quite some time back home to straighten out the mess with Barnes & Noble. So much for the Nook for me.

    No American does it better

    A novel to rival War and Peace or I Promessi Sposi in scope. I'd say this guy has more important stuff to say about Ireland than worthless Joyce and his Ulysses piece of trash.
