A devestating review of the details of the almost unimaginably horrible Irish famine of the late 1800's. Relentless and eye-opening. Jim Cramer mentioned it on "Mad Money" and I picked it up at the library that week out of curiosity. Wow. I have to admit though, I only read half of it by the time it was due back, and haven't re-checked it out yet. The first half was harrowing enough, and I don't know if I want to learn what came later.
