Not sure why I picked this up maybe it was being the product of what in Northern Ireland was referred to as a mixed marriage It was an interesting book, but I found Wil and his friends extremely unsympathetic, even while I could see the forces that shaped them and left them feeling unable to act any other way I think there was not quite enough humanity in the book but maybe I m an incurable optimist.

Picked up a used copy off Portabello Road in an Aid for Romania charity shop A quick read and quite good account of one Irish teen s experience on supervised holiday to America to mend relations between Protestants and Catholics Would probably make a good movie, as primarily action based Always interesting to see major conflicts through eyes of those involved in them.

An interesting book that considers how the Troubles affected young people growing up in Ireland, and in the extreme case of the main character, incited them to become involved in the violence.
