Read in January, 2006

I just noticed that I hadn't included this book in my "read books" category! It truly is one of the best books I've ever read. It was shortlisted for the Booker Prize the year "The Sea" won, but I thought it was better. Set during WWI with an Irish soldier fighting for the British -- raised by a Catholic dad who works in The Castle (for the British) -- goes home during the Easter Rising. For those who know Irish history, this book is especially terrific.
