Review: A LONG, LONG WAY by Sebastian Barry

Jules’ Book Reviews recently read and reviewed A Long, Long Way by Sebastian Barry for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s a sample:

Overall this was a very good read, there were a few times where I didn’t enjoy it, but others I was gripped by the story, and in the end it became a very memorable story about the first world war. The wring in the book was excellent – poetic at times, and descriptive passages that showed the horrific realities of the war, the author created a very realistic and stunning story about the soldiers in the trenches. There were a few scenes, that were both stunning, depressing and horrifying all at once, but I appreciate what the author pulled off.

Read the full review.
