Really good book spanning many generations in the "Mitchner" style. Brilliantly weaving impeccable historical research with stirring stories that are hard to put down.

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.

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!

Ideal for car trips as the story progresses through a number of tales as history rolls along: love story, battles and politics. An interesting tale to listen to and learn about major events in Irish history up to the invasion of Henry VIII, mostly interpreting the great Irish historical legend. Really long for an abridgement: 8 cds, 9 hours!

I was highly disappointed by this book. Having read Sarum, London and New York by Rutherford I was looking forward to this book. It is written totally different than his other books and drags on and on. My husband tried to read it before me and also just gave up!

Saga is right. This is a huge book and covers more Irish history than you would think.
