    " A sobering and well written book about another horrid example of man's inhumanity to man. Having recently finished Unbroken (Hillenbrand) and Matterhorn (Marlenates) I may have to read some Dr. Seuss to recalibrate my psyche. Morgan Llywelyn provides an apparently very accurate account of the Irish Rebellion, which includes all of the important historical characters, through the framework of a set of fictional characters. It is well crafted and entertaining and yet heart-wrenching in the knowledge that it is based on fact. I must read up now and find out how the Irish independence evolved from this bloody beginning. "

    " The prose is interesting and all, but the narrative is a bit uneven. "
