this book was a wonderfully efficient overview of the potato famine in Ireland. there is no opinion or fluff. it is a quick read and very well written. the book is fully encompassing of the tragedy without being too long or tedious.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and its narration. I like the brevity of it. Recently, I read 'The Great Influenza,' which was waaaay too long. This book got more done in its 3 hours.

A very interesting listen, I learned much from this writer about the hard times of the famine, indeed I often wonder if any of my Fathers relations would have lived through this time, one cannot help to feel the pain and suffering of the time.

What disappointed you about Black Potatoes?
Seriously unoriginal and banal with little to no analysis and really added nothing to the subject.
What was most disappointing about Susan Campbell Bartoletti’s story?
It was incredibly over simplified and almost patronising
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Performance was good.
