The early chapters, which provide background on the historical forces that shaped Northern Irish politics, economics and society, are generally enlightening, but the later ones detailing the 20th-century conflicts read like a laundry list of events rather than a cohesive history. Also, this book seems especially plagued with typos and awkward syntax, making it a bit of a hassle to read through.

Започва добре, но бързо се впуска в ненужни обяснения и подробности, които правят книгата по-обемна без реална полза. Има и по-добри начини човек да се запознае с историята на ирландския конфликт.
