The Irish
The Irish
by Andrew M. Greeley
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars No joke, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Irish (Hardcover)
We should be ashamed that there is still a sub-culture of Irish jokes in this country. Take the whole canon of great English Literature and well over half of it was written by Irish writers. They are an erudite and creative people. The 'folk literature' too is fresh, vital and amusing. There is also a deep vein of spirituality in Irish tales and writing - Christianity first came to Britain from Ireland - and this is nowhere better seen than in the charming and profound little story of the king of Kerry. I've yet to read a more convincing depiction of God. This book is a celebration and a joy.

I thought I was purchasing the fragmentary Gnostic gospel with some theological commentary. It turned out to be a cheap novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars My cats love it!, 7 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because our cats were getting too lazy. They were wary of it at first but they got used to it. Now they spend hours playing on it.
The only problem is they love the beds attatched to it and are now twice as lazy!

5.0 out of 5 stars the journey continues, 1 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The message of this play, a bold piece of drama for the time in which it was written, is still relevant and powerful today. The plot is very easy to follow, and it is the themes and ideas that draw the reader in, such as the moral dilemma of commanders who know that the war is unjustified and that their own leaders are stupid and incompetent, yet feel duty or honour bound to follow the rules of war. Does any of this sound familiar?
There is also a grim fascination in examining the strategies each man adopts in order to cope with the insane hell in which he finds himself. It is a real drama about real people, and it leaves the audience/readers with uncomfortable questions.


THE FRUIT OF THE FAMILY TREE.
THE FRUIT OF THE FAMILY TREE.

5.0 out of 5 stars the fruit of the family tree, 20 Sept. 2010

A very interesting book. The bluntness of tsome of the statements about heredity, written in a time before political correctness, was unexpected and refreshing. The book came in good condition for a volume published in the 1920s.A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Master of Christmas, 19 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of Dickens' greatest strengths is his storytelling ability. You feel as though you are being read to by a kindly and eccentric uncle, who can make any party a success. The inherent social and political comments and criticisms add to the power of the works. The stories are truly indispensable Christmas reading.
