Really good book spanning many generations in the Mitchner style. Brilliantly weaving impeccable historical research with stirring stories that are hard to put down.
This darn book kept me awake at night! Tis a good Irish tale.
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!
Gerry H. (squib) reviewed The Princes of Ireland : The Dublin Saga on
Helpful Score: 4
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.
