    Bog Child Reader ð HardcoverDownload ↠ Siobhan dowd Bog ChildAh Jesus This really is a beautiful heart wrenching story My one piece of advice? If you do the audio thing then that's how to do this one Sile Bermingham is the perfect reader her soft lilt a gorgeous accompaniment not just to the lyrical prose that will make you shudder when it's read aloud but delivering on the Irish accent transporting you to a very particular time and place It should have been the Irish history content of this novel that brought it to my attention on that later but it wasn't It was its a

Answer is to fin books like It's been worth going to lot of crap to find gems like thisAfter A Monster call by Patrick Ness which was based on concept by Siobhan Dowd I was intrigued to read from both authors Ness was first and now that I'm finished with most of his stuff it's Dowd's turnAbout the book there isn't much to say without revealing too much except that this is YA coming of age story set in turbulen

    Bog Child Reader ð HardcoverDownload ↠ Siobhan dowd Bog ChildThis is yet another book that made me wish Goodreads allowed 12 stars I ultimately went with 3 instead of 4 because although I enjoyed it and like some elements of the story very much the writing is a bit simplistic and the plot is predictable at timesStill I'm very glad that I happened across this book in a used bookstore because for once an impulse buy paid off I usually have much better luck when I select books on Goodreads than when I go by the blurbs on

    Bog Child Reader ð HardcoverDownload ↠ Siobhan dowd Bog ChildIt was a wonderful read Fergus will be one of my favorite characters for years to comein recent years I haven't read any book on Ireland and I am very vague about Irish history I just know that they were under the British for a long time I came upon this book when I read A Monster Calls as a part of the group BOTM read this book too wouldn't have been in my radar otherwise and Patrick Ness the author in his foreword a suggested that the reader should try out books by Siobhan Doud whose brainchild the book was but unfortunately couldn't execute the idea due to her illness and subseuent demise So a fewof us scourged the lists and decided to do a buddy read of the Bog Child supposedly one of her best worksI chose this for the intriguing title And am glad that I did soFergus an 18 ye

    Bog Child Reader ð HardcoverDownload ↠ Siobhan dowd Bog ChildA personal favourite of mine I found the book in my high school library and was impelled to read it due to the interesting premise I have a very strong historical calling and historical fiction is a nice slip between reality and fantasyFergus is a graduating high school student who crosses the border with his Uncle Tally to swipe some peat in the early morning hours and stumbles upon the body of what appears to be a young girl of seven or eight At his insistence his uncle goes back to the police to inform them of the body While the elder is gone Fergus begins having some strange dreams about the said girl in the bog That is simply part of the story howeverFergus lives in Dublin in 1981 a time when the PIRA Provisionary Irish Republican Army is setting up riots and their volunteers are arrested and then commanded to go under a hunger strike Fergus’ brother is one such volunteer who when he follows the rest of his militiamen throws his entire family into turmoil A
