I am enjoying this book, especially after just finishing Immortal Irishman. I am having a problem with Shame only in that it is read by an Englishman. They should have chosen a person with the Irish brogue. The history of the English dominance of Ireland is ugly one in so many respects. Listening to a book about Hitler's Germany read by a person with a German accent would not be as effective as one read in a Jewish accent. Just one man's opinion.

This appears a passion project for Keneally (possibly due to success of Schindler's List?). It is an incredibly detailed book about Irishmen that ran afoul of the British Government in the 19th century. It is not really for the general public, more a specialty book. It a rambling book, in desperate need of an editor. And the guy reading it cannot pronounce Australian place names correctly (seriously... wtf...)
