I Don't Know How the Irish Managed to Endure

Clear, fascinating & enjoyable
Such an accent. I will never read a book about Ireland if I instead could listen to this voice dancing and melting over the text.
After visiting Ireland I felt like I had broken bits of history - Viking invasion, English nobles taking over the land, Easter rising - but no clear narrative of how these events wove together into one history. This book was great for that. I could imagine listening to it again just because it is both interesting and narrated by a wonderful voice.
