really liked it

A great read although it took me about 60 pages to get into it. (I'd give it 3.5 if Goodreads enabled that.) There are passages where Barry's abilities as a wordsmith are as good as anyone's. There are also passages that are so gripping with tension, it would take several big bullies to wrest the book away. Somehow Barry manages to weave a keen sense of humor into a pretty bleak story. It is also a thoughtful book about political independence movements and some rarely considered collateral damage.
