A pleasant view into a life which has disappeared growing up in an isolated community on Great Blasket an island off the Atlantic coast of Ireland at the beginning of the 20th century in the days before television radio computers and telephones Even news is infreuently brought from the mainland and not at all in rough weather Surrounded by nature fishing for a living and hunting rabbits for food in an island teeming with them the people live a simple life the old helping the young and the women keeping up a running commentary on everything the men do Occasionally there is some excitement including scavenging after shipwrecks caring for a boatload of shipwrecked sailors from the Lusitania and trips to the mainland for wedding celebrations Originally written in the Irish language it s clear where the lilt of present day English speaking Irish originates including the turn of phrase and tendency to use curses as part of normal conversation In the first part of the 20th century this tended to be various phrases invoking the devil Nowadays it usually takes the form of various words beginning with the letter F Back then a greeting was the formulaic God save all here with the answer God and Mary save you A gentler time which was already disappearing with the shadow of young people leaving for America in search of their fortune and even Maurice O Sullivan himself leaving to become a policeman on the mainlandInteresting and gently told in the form of disconnected episodes of recollection in a storytelling style Not very exciting and yet I read it to the end It s a shame I didn t manage to take this to the BookCrossing Convention in Dublin but perhaps that would be taking coals to Newcastle and it s better to release it so Ireland enthusiasts here can enjoy it BookCrossing book

This wasn t my favorite book of the year by any means but it was an interesting read as I have an interest in Island life and the history of the life on the islands of the Coast of Ireland While it was entertaining at times it did become repetitive and dragged and perhaps the translation from Irish to English takes away from the flow of the story It has to be noted It is the first translation into English of a genuine account of the life of the Irish peasants written by one of themselves as distinct from what has been written about them by the poets and dramatists of the Anglo Irish School taken directly from Preface Maurice O Sullivan was born in 1904 on a remote Island of the Atlantic coast of Ireland called the Great Blasket He wrote this story for his own pleasure and for the entertainment of his friends without any thought for readers outside of his own group of friends and this is reflected in the honest and plain language of the time It is a wonderful insight into the customs and traditions and everyday life on the Island and the reader is transported back to past through the eyes of the author who recounts the story of his childhoodA book that has wonderful historical value and while its not one for my favorites list I certainly don t regret reading it
