4.0 out of 5 stars Less sex & violence, please,,,, March 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The 3rd season has less kinky sex but more creepy violence: sawing up a dead body & putting it in a trunk; pulling out a tooth with pliers. The plotline is so good, the series doesn't need kinky sex or weird violence. If the producers would learn that, more parents would let their teenage children watch the show & learn about the Cold War and difficult human relationships.

5.0 out of 5 stars Philosophy of Christian economics, May 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Horvat gives us all things to think about. Our possessions own us rather than we own our "stuff." Obsession with stuff is ruining our lives and our economy, and increasing inequality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Confusing but funny book about contemporary Ireland, November 8, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The plot is so convoluted you will never figure it out. The people who were thought to be dead are alive, and some of the living are dead. Perhaps the Irish see no difference in "crossing over" and we are all both living and dead. And what about the pooka?

4.0 out of 5 stars Another sad Irish story of the Civil War, July 9, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Scorching Wind (Paperback)
We read all 3 of the trilogy for our Irish book club. Macken is a great writer. He uses the analogy of 2 brothers fighting on different sides in the civil war to show how Ireland was ripped apart once it achieved Free State status. I would argue that members of the same family were rarely if ever on different sides.

My irish language group replaced our Buntus book with Spoken World. It uses modern words like "computer" & begins with information on pronouncing the strange Irish spelling

3.0 out of 5 stars British view of Irish independence, June 9, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We read this for our Irish Book Club & there were diverse opinions. Since the book is written by a British officer, it is critical of Michael Collins & the IRA. Our group made the comparison with the US in Iraq & Afghanistan today. No matter how justified the intervention, the local guerrilla groups will react and the US or Britain will be drawn into a quagmire that makes their soldiers behave overly violently. With the political restraints at home in US & Britain, the soldiers are not given the mandate to win.
