I'm a sophomore student in high school and read this book for a research project about the Potato Famine. This book mainly focused on the government outlook of the Potato Famine. Since my project was on the Potato Famine and not how the government was involved, the book wasn’t any kind of use to me. I took no quotes from this book to use in my paper, and didn’t learn much from this book. The book didn’t even have a summary of what the Potato Famine actually was and how effected the Irish people. Also, this book was advanced and was written with a wide variety of vocabulary and I couldn’t understand what Kinealy was trying to write. This book was complicated for me with the fact that the language was too advanced and I couldn’t use any of the information given. For other readers, I would not recommend this book from lack of information on the famine and the advanced language used. However, if one wanted to know all about the government during the famine, this book is a perfect fit.
