    Paperback ☆ Ireland PDF/EPUB º ireland book, Ireland MOBIIreland by Frank Delaney is a compelling and in some ways remarkable book When I found it I was looking for a history of Ireland I didn't get that or at least not exactly This is a story of Ireland told by examining the lives of several Irish individuals The main theme of the book is that you can't really understand Ireland with just names dates and facts To really understand the country and its people you must hear the stories behind the history and the author does exactly that using some rather clever narrative devices throughoutIn the first act we meet a young boy who is visited by a wait for it travelling storyteller with a penchant for walking around Ireland telling the stories that

    Paperback ☆ Ireland PDF/EPUB º ireland book, Ireland MOBIFrank Delaneys Ireland reminds me of a caduceus like the staff of the Greek god Hermes with two intertwined serpents One of the serpents is the story of a young man named Ronan O'Mara son of a prosperous Irish attorney who falls under the spell of the last of the traveling storytellers known in Gaelic as a seanchai The other thread or serpent is the story of Ireland itself from prehistoric times at Newgrange to the Easter Rebellion of 1916 in Dublin In between Ronan's uest to meet up with the storyteller we are regaled with a series of anecdotal episodes from Irish history many heavily laden with mythical overtones Not that

    Paperback ☆ Ireland PDF/EPUB º ireland book, Ireland MOBII just could not get into this book at all I found the tales to be boring and the storytelling even worse I have many Irish friends who are able to tell a tale in a most fun and witty way They are never boring and with that true Irish wit and the glint in their eyes they weave a story that amazes and thrills you or perhaps it is that wonderful accent and laugh they all seem to have naturally Frank Delaney unfortunately could not seem to muster up any enthusiasm in this reader He made me dread going back to a book I knew or at least I thought I knew I was going to love What a big disappointment Where was that Irish charm those wonderful folktales or even where was that pot of gold we always hope to find in the Irish rainbow's end Sadly this was definitely missing in this bookI made it halfway and even had my husband read it He has a lot Irish in him than I and he could not even get past the first 100 pagesS
