Interesting, but very detailed and long,
This review is from: The Great Shame (Hardcover)
I did not finish this book, but not because it was in any way bad. It is a very detailed account of 19th century Irish history. I was anticipating it containing rather more detail about the potato famine and rather less detail about Irish settlers in the new world and convicts transported to Australia - this is not a criticism, but just not quite what I was after reading, having been prompted to read it after finishing Edward Rutherfurd's Ireland: Awakening.
I may well return to this some day.
