"Leon Uris is a storyteller, in a direct line from those men who sat around fires in the days before history and made the tribe more human." --The New York Times Book Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Extremely well developed characters.
In this book Uris' love for the Irish people comes to fruition as he chronicles the early days of the Irish rebellion against the English colonial occupation.
I find myself reading the last thirty pages or so over and over even now, two months after I first finished the book.
This is a fantastic book about the struggles in Ireland in the late 1800s and early 1900s. I absolutely loved it, and am buying it for a friend who is of Irish heritage. Read morePublished 13 days ago by T. Hinkle
Perhaps the best book ever written regarding this time period in Irish history. Have lived in Ireland and studied Irish history, this book (while fictional) is as close to history... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Gibbs Family
