    A Long Long Way MOBI ¸ A Long eBook Ê ✓ MOBI nikeairmaxcheapuk.co long epub, long kindle, A Long mobile, A Long Long Way EpubHaving read all of Barry's novels and loved them not his plays yet Long Long Way still remains my favourite Told in Barry's lyrical way he captures the innocence and pride of youth a boy trying desperately to be a man and measure up to what he feels is expected of him It tells of his betrayal at the hands of a friend and at the hands of the army he has been sweating blood and tears for Despite all of this it remains somehow hopeful and captures the hearts of the true heroes of warthose who understand it's futility

    A Long Long Way MOBI ¸ A Long eBook Ê ✓ MOBI nikeairmaxcheapuk.co long epub, long kindle, A Long mobile, A Long Long Way EpubThis is a truly great book so well written and uite mesmerizing I felt immersed in the horrors of war but the poetic style and lilt of the sentences somehow made it acceptable An enriching experience In some places the editing could have been better The worst example was in the Ave Maria uoted about three times with the error gratia plenis for gratia plena To make it even worse the third time the uotation is accompanied by a comment on how the Irish Catholic soldiers new the words perfectly How ironic

    A Long Long Way MOBI ¸ A Long eBook Ê ✓ MOBI nikeairmaxcheapuk.co long epub, long kindle, A Long mobile, A Long Long Way EpubThere have been a lot of great novels published about life in modern Ireland Many focus on the country's passionate fight for independence from Britain or the brutal land evictions or the sadness of having to emigrate to a new land While there is still a great story or two coming out of these times none really compares in power and vision to Sebastian Barry's works Through very colorful and detailed descriptions of everyday Irish life Barry euips his main characters with a heroic determination to make sense of their troubled lives While politics religion and social s play the traditional roles of trying to hold the individual back Barry's protagonists have the courage to persist in their search for their true identity The results of Barry's literary effo

    A Long Long Way MOBI ¸ A Long eBook Ê ✓ MOBI nikeairmaxcheapuk.co long epub, long kindle, A Long mobile, A Long Long Way EpubA distressing and painful read that often seems unremitting in its dark depressing picture of one man's war against the Germans and against his own feelings of inadeuacy There is no escape from either the misery of the battlefield or from the disappointments in his personal life In the midst of such despair he remains sensitive to the experiences of others though bewildered by ideas and attitudes he finds difficult to graspThere are few lighthearted moments but the camaraderie of the soldiers and the affection of his siblings allow glimpses of a better life I struggled to read through some of the battlefield descriptions and the horror will remain with me andthe almost lyrical uality of the passages describing the surrounding countryside served to emphasise the devastation that was close by You need a strong stomach to read this through to the end kn

    A Long Long Way MOBI ¸ A Long eBook Ê ✓ MOBI nikeairmaxcheapuk.co long epub, long kindle, A Long mobile, A Long Long Way EpubI bought this after reading Days Without End which I enjoyed and which I similarly gave 4 stars It would have been 5 stars except I find the author's writing style a bit difficult to digest at times Its not exactly stream of consciousness but has a similar uality It's a bit like overhearing a conversation in a bar and just getting the gist of it As with the previous book I adopted an approach of don't sweat the small stuff as long as I could figure out where the story was heading I didn't worry about having to understand everything Even so I occasionally had to go back over a page or paragraph to get my head around what was happeningThat is just a minor warning for those who like their prose accurate and logical Having said that riding the wave of emotion in the book was very engrossing I learned a lot about how it FELT to be an Irishm
