Book Description

As early as the introduction of Christianity Ireland was already divided into four such aggregations of tribes--kingdoms they are commonly called--answering pretty nearly to the present four provinces, with the addition of Meath, which was the appanage of the house of Ulster, and included West Meath, Longford, and a fragment of the King's County. Of the other four provinces, Connaught acknowledged the rule of the O'Connors, Munster that of the O'Briens, Leinster of the McMurroughs, and Ulster of the O'Neills, who were also in theory over-kings, or, as the native word was, Ard-Reaghs of the entire island.

The Good: Ever want to know the story of Ireland from day one to 1913?? Read this book! Emily Lawless covers Irish history thoroughly and seemlessly as she moves from one year to the next, covering a myriad of players and events all written in a way that is easy to understand. If you are a casual historian like I am, or just love our beloved Green Isle, this is a must read for you!

The Bad: Not necessarily due to the author, but there are a few times that some players get confusing. Ireland's history is so vast and cluttered with tyranny and heroism alike that I found myself getting lost at times. I believe that Emily, with the room she had, handled all this wel though.

The Ugly: As I was nearing the end of the book, and rounding out the 1800's, I was anxious to see what she had written about Ireland's 1916 heroic stand against the occupying British. I was astounded to find that the books stops several years before that happens! Now this was a Kindle download so I didn't get to see the publish date but assume it was pre-1916 because she asks in wonderment what the next years will bring. So that was a little disappoionting and anyone looking for information on 1916 will not get it here.

The Verdict: Well worth the read. This book was informative and entertaining without being bloated by the author's speculation or feelings on the issues.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Difficult to follow 19 octobre 2011

This book is difficult to read. The author jumps around from point to historical point as if you could read his mind. You might be able to follow the book if you are already intimately familiar with Irish history; if not, you'll find some enlightening sections and some Holy-Mackerel, WTF sections.

Overall, I know more about the homeland of my grandparents and that's good.

This is worth reading for the language alone. The author has a wonderful way of describing places, people, and events. Even though I am not enthralled with the subject of Irish history, I keep returning to the book because I enjoy reading it.

Not a casual read, more like a textbook. But a good summary of the history of Ireland. Although some areas that I felt could have had more color were skimmed over and others that were thoroughly discussed I thought could have been shortened in length.

The writing language used in this book is apparently old style Irish which is kinda tricky getting used to. I often find myself re-reading long sentences to try and figure out what it's saying. Like backing into an equation mathematically. On the other hand, maybe that just makes it more authentic. Some of the name places sound like Hobbit places, but didn't that story base itself in Old Ireland? Anyway, it's great learning the story of this Island Nation. Very tribal, very localized in its origins. They sure had a hard time getting to where they are today. What a hard road. Anyway, I like the way this history is presented.
