The Princes of Ireland Free read î 100 Nterlocking stories of a memorable cast of characters–druids and chieftains monks and smugglers noblewomen and farmwives laborers and orphans rebels and cowards–Rutherfurd captures the essence of a place and its people in a thrilling story steeped in the tragedy and glory that are Irela After posting a poll about whether I should finish the book I thought about the pros and ons of each side TThe advice I got was very similar to what I was thinking The first half of it had interested and engaged me maybe I would get interested again I don t like to spend 15 on a book and then not finish it At the same time though I d struggled through 100 pages and was hopelessly bored I didn t think I d want to pick up the book again not later not no how Since I did read almost all of the book I thought I would write about it anyway Edwsard Rutherfurd s been called this age s James Michener That s not necessarily a good thing as Michener s books can drag on and be excessively wordy Another problem is when you want to cover centuries in a book you lose a lot of the characterizationEarly on I found Rutherford s characters interesting and engaging I think he spent time fleshing them out and it probably would have been better if his Dublin Saga had been split into 2 or 3 books to give eual time to everyone The story starts in mythic Ireland covering a tale I d become somewhat familiar with Deirdre escaping with the nephew of the king and incurring the king s wrath the great cattle raid of C Chulainn Rutherford moved smoothly from mythology to the arrival of St Patrick and Catholicism with many characters carrying over from one age to the next The sections about the Vikings and Brian Boru were also fascinating although by then new characters were introduced I began to get bored during the Strongbow section and struggled at the end I struggled for 100 pages and then tried skpping around It didn t work By this time the characters weren t so rich or interesting any They just seemed like incarnations of people already introduced I lost interest did the poll put the book down and moved on to something else I m glad I did
