Yes, finally finished this monster at 944 Pages. Read a quarter of it last year before recalled to the library and started all over again this year. Another enjoyable read, and really enjoyed the section on The Irish Potato Famine and the second half of the book. A bit too political and religiony (new word 😂) in places. Felt a bit abrupt ending to the book, just after the Irish Rising and really wanted to know what happened since then!
Spent most of today trying to finish this #chunkster, but also been reading Echoes by Maeve Binchy another Chunksters. Put these books together and come to an impressive 1696 Pages! Hope to finish Ireland Awakening today.
So far for the #WinterStormReadathon I have clocked up 7 hours 34 minutes.
Starting my first #Chunkster of the year. This one has 944 pages. I did start it last year but lost motivation a quarter of the way through hopefully I‘ll have the #motivation to finish it this year. #ANewChapter

Not time to finish another book in 2017 so launching my year of big books in 2018 by starting to read Ireland : Awakening, all 944 Pages Of it! This is the second half of his Irish / Dublin Saga, having read the first half many years ago on Shelfari as part of a Group Read along with @Melissa_J and other friends from the Shelfari days. Much missed! However does now feel like a life time ago!
I would like to read about the history of The Troubles and the IRA, separate books are fine. I want it to be engaging and not dry because I'd really like to fill my knowledge gap.
