I <b>really</b> looked forward to this novel because of its setting and reputation, but did not enjoy it. As a previous reviewer suggested, the backgound of the Irish freedom struggle, Gallipoli, and some discussion of the imperialist rationale for WW1 are fascinating and well-woven into the narrative, but as a whole this "listen" failed me - I suspect it's mostly due to the often abrupt abridgements.
The "action" scenes are probably very well-written, but I have little appreciation for those.

This was a gut wrenching book (especially if you have an Irish background). A book that leaves you wanting more. I wish that this had been an unabriged book.
