An interesting book on a subject (the separation of Ireland and its civil war) I didn't know much about. The author makes us feel the oppression, the power of the rumour, the fear, the blackmail.
There are a lot of digressions, which make the reading slowler. I also got surprised that there is no dialogs in the book. When there is a oral exchange, it is all in the same sentence. It makes the narrative heavier.
I like the "reading during walking" habbit. If only, I could do this !
