An enjoyable read. It's important to keep in mind that the stories told in each era are vehicles for displaying the times and history of the country, and should not be judged solely unto themselves. I came away with a much better understand on Ireland from this book, I can't wait to read the second part!

The story follows the development of Dublin as experienced by the people who lived there. Events ranging from the 4th or 5th century through the 15th or 16th century. The CD should whet your appatite for the unabridged written version. It is a very long book but is much more brilliant given the continuity not found in the CD version.

Very enjoyable and immediately captivating. You feel entangled in the lives of his characters- as always! When I finished the book I felt lonely, as if I had said goodbye to a friend.

I really loved this story, I have just started the 2nd book. It does get somewhat confusing at times because you are working with a lot of characters but if you can follow it you will love the story.
