HASH(0xa27b84f8) out of 5 stars Could have been so much better April 15 2008
By S. Radler - Published on
Format: Paperback
Having just visited the Clew Bay area of County Mayo, I bought this book hoping for an interesting read about the life of Grace O'Malley and was sorely disappointed. The book is about 5% Grace and 95% general Irish history of the era, which, while important, makes for very dry reading at times. Furthermore, the book suffers from occasional mangled grammar and glaring factual errors, for example, referring to two men once as being uncle-nephew and later as being step-brothers. Although several people in the narrative do have the same name, this kind of mistake is inexcusable if a competent editor had been on board.

Furthermore, the index is woefully incomplete and the one supplied map is not very helpful. There is no scale -- a cardinal sin when printing any map -- and many places and castles mentioned in the book are not on the map at all; their inclusion would have added a lot to my comprehension.

Sail past this book if you want a lively read about Grace O'Malley.

Very interesting book, well written. Amazing how our history books just leave certain stories out! I never heard of Grace before, but what a gutsy woman in a man's world! Fascinating!

Absolutely the BEST book on O'Malley. A real lesson in history. Not just about pirates, but the times they lived in and
what was happening at that time.

too wordy and to much factual rather than story, not much about Grace O'malley more about the era. I was disappointed looking for more story like book
