Gripping and emotional from start to finish. Beautifully written and striking work to read. At times there was no putting the book down. The book shows true compassion and loyalty in a world that is destructive and cruel.
It is easy to see why this book is often studied at Junior Cycle level for Irish exams. Many different themes and settings are used which makes for a really interesting read.
The description and the detail that is in the book is fantastic and it is easy to imagine what life must have been like in war times. I would recommend this book to anyone over the age of 11.
