Too short for a book with such wonderful true stories. There was so much more that could have been related

Price: £0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Irish tale, 6 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The story of the poor scholar is like a history lesson about pre-famine Ireland and its traditions. The story of young boy from a poor family who sets out for the priesthood, meets all sorts of calamities but in his own way he survives to realise his dream and return his family to good fortune. I enjoyed every line

4.0 out of 5 stars Ancient but fantastic, 20 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a humorous book in which many of the forgotten traditions of Ireland have been recorded. It takes the reader a bit of time to get used to the way in which the author writes but it is worth the readers' while to gain a proper feel for the stories. I thought it was a fantastic book and I am going to start another William Carleton vol of stories.

This review is from: Yarns (Kindle Edition)
This book entertained me and made me laugh on occasion. I enjoyed its variety of stories which were simple homespun tales of typical Irish folk. My only problem is that it was too short. If you enjoy a good, pleasant, entertaining read then pick this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of many masterpieces, 28 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mr. Keane was a great lover. Not necessarily women but a great lover of Kerry. With every story there is touch of Kerry humour and a large piece of insight into life. Great book. Still great after the fourth time of reading. His work is an inspiration to all potential storytellers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gruesome history, 18 Sept. 2014

4.0 out of 5 stars Historical Romance eye opener, 9 May 2014

This opened my eyes. It is a book containing historical background mixed with romance. It has action and love but in the right mix. Moreover, it is suitable for all ages.
