    Ireland Unhinged Characters ä 109 Ireland UnhingedTook ages to read But a decent insight into an American family's life after they've settled into Ireland Half memoir half travelogue Interesting in most parts Not a bad book

    Ireland Unhinged Characters ä 109 Ireland UnhingedThis is the second David Monagan book Jaywalking being the first which left me somewhat ill at ease I can't pinpoint whether it's his topic obviously Ireland has serious financial problems or Mr Monagan's viewpoint on the problems I think I was uncomfortable in seeing myself a typical American tourist identified in several pla

    Ireland Unhinged Characters ä 109 Ireland UnhingedThis was a particularly interesting account of the author's observations as an American who has lived in Ireland with his family since around 2000 Monagan relates the things that drew him to a life in Ireland his growing disillusionment with the country during the Celtic Tiger boom years and the beginning of change much of it positive he has witnessed since the economic bust I read his earlier book Jaywalking with the Irish which told the story of his initial move to Cork from Connecticut and the adjustments he and his family had to make in their new home so it was nice to read about what has happened to him since and how he is getting on during all the recent change

    Ireland Unhinged Characters ä 109 Ireland UnhingedNearly tossed because his social politics seem awry but not sure his book deserves the low average rating He is writing from a Catholic viewpoint about an outdated financial crisis But the main problem is the book's challenging mix of gritty details profiles and magazine pieces Far informative less self involved than Bryson it still misses Ireland's mystery As a Swedish immigrant says to him Ireland is in fact a very big country Being disjointed is par


  • MikeFromQueens

    Ireland Unhinged Characters ä 109 Ireland UnhingedWell it was not bad but not what I expected The author was writing his memoir of the years in Ireland almost like a journal I thought there would be research based information outside the author's experience for comparison I did get a real flavor of the locals in those parts visited by the author


  • Clair

    Ireland Unhinged Characters ä 109 Ireland UnhingedThe beginning of this book provided an excellent narrative of the rise of the Celtic Tiger but halfway through it became really disjointed and strayed far from any semblance of logical order I was really excited to read this book but I uit before finishing it
