Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Nonnie Augustine | 2/20/2014

    " Whether or not you have Irish blood, this is a fascinating, horrible, revealing period of history. I now understand the 19th century, from the perspective of the frequently forgotten small farmer, laborer, and craftsman on a deeper level and this understanding includes the immigrants to Canada, Boston, and Staten Island, New York, where three of my great grandparents landed. Terrific book, but certainly sad reading. "

    " A little too political for my taste, wanted to know more about the plight of the people and less about the political power issues of the time. "

    " Historical. Traces Irish famine causes and responses. Confirms for me that my Irish ancestors must have been Anglo-Irish Protestants most likely. "

    " The research for this book is unbelievable, very detailed. The book, however, was a bit boaring. "
