A long long way written by Sebastian Barry was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2005 and tells an amazing and extremely well written storyThis is the third novel I have read by Barry and have to say he is fast becoming one of my favourite writersThis is the story of Willie Dunne who at the age of eighteen is too short to follow in his father s footsteps and become a policeman in Dublin but who is old enough to volunteer and fight for England in World War 1 and so Willie leaves behind Dublin his family and the girl he plans to marry to enlist in the allied forces in the Great War partly to prove himself a man and please his father At the time of the first world war there was an understanding among the Irish people that Ireland would gain Home Rule within the coming few years and young men like Willie Dunne took up the cause to fight for King Country and Empire against the Germans in the hope that this would further their cause while another section of Irish refused to fight for England and they instead took up Arms in the Rising of 1916 in Dublin to gain Irish freedom While Willie Dunne and the Dublin Fusiliers suffer abroad Dublin City is suffering during the Easter Rising and men like Willie Dunne and his comrades are thought of and regarded as traitors by their fellow countrymen Having recently visited Kilmainham Gaol where the executions in May 1916 of fourteen of the leaders of the failed 1916 Easter Rising took place and having the tour information and pictures of the executed men fresh in my head I was emotionally and factually ready for a novel of this depthThis is a tough read and certainly not for the faint hearted so if you get put off by horrific scenes of war and vulgar and brutal happenings then this is not the novel for you but this certainly is account of war that that takes you right into the trenches with young Willie Dunne and his comrades and you experience a teensy tiny bit of their fear and their anguish and the sualor and the camaraderie of the men who both fight and die side by sideA 5 star rating for me and a book that will stay with me A Certain Je Ne Sais uoi years and Pleins feux sur le tutu young men like Willie Dunne took up the cause to fight for King Country and Empire against the Germans in the hope that this would further their cause while another section of Irish refused to fight for England and they instead took up Arms in the Rising of 1916 in Dublin to gain Irish freedom While Willie Dunne and the Dublin Fusiliers suffer abroad Dublin City is suffering during the Easter Rising and men like Willie Dunne and his comrades are thought of and regarded as traitors by their fellow countrymen Having recently visited Kilmainham Gaol where the executions in May 1916 of fourteen of the leaders of the failed 1916 Easter Rising took place and having the tour information and pictures of the executed men fresh in my head I was emotionally and factually ready for a novel of this depthThis is a tough read and certainly not for the faint hearted so if Bogwoppit you get put off by horrific scenes of war and vulgar and brutal happenings then this is not the novel for Middle School The Worst Years of My Life you but this certainly is account of war that that takes The Day Louis Got Eaten you right into the trenches with Measuring Time young Willie Dunne and his comrades and Jerusalem you experience a teensy tiny bit of their fear and their anguish and the sualor and the camaraderie of the men who both fight and die side by sideA 5 star rating for me and a book that will stay with me

Certain mental images can be a little too vivid When it comes to WW1 the permamuck of the trenches the seared throats from deadly gases and the pants soiling horror of seeing a comrade s detached body parts inches away are associations powerful enough to shut us down There s only so far we can extend our comprehension in the face of palpable terror So how does a good author milk it a little getting us past the autonomic desensitization and back into the boots of shared experience In Sebastian Barry s case he creates a character so earnest and eager to please that he seems custom built as an empathy magnet The fully realized inner life of Willie Dunne the 18 year old central figure a Dubliner gone off to fight England s war combined with a fascinating account of the politics of Irish Home Rule made for uite a story It was beautifully written too Barry deserved his acclaim short listed for a BookerWillie loved and respected his father a policeman and loyal supporter of the crown At 5 6 tall Willie was not allowed to join his 6 6 da in the police force Sir Francis Galton s regression to the mean effect overshot in this case Aching for respect Willie signed up to fight the Germans in the name of the King The word was that Irish Home Rule would be granted after these volunteers fought in common cause alongside the English Willie also had to leave his girlfriend behind along with his youthful innocence It didn t take long after the grand send off to realize what we all already knew war sucks Barry s descriptions were realistic and mortifying We re made to care about the men even for getting to know them as people real sentient beings with personalities and aspirations A scene that really got to me was one where some middle ranking tough as nails guy named Christy seemingly against type had a soft spot for music He was temporarily at peace with the world when Willie sang Ave MariaWillie was given furlough for the Easter holiday It was a short happy stay but there was a massive confusion just as he was reporting back gunshots and not ones coming from Germans It was the Easter Rising of 1916 where Irishmen who wanted Home Rule faster and assuredly than England would likely deliver rose up against them Willie and his fellow soldiers were asked to uell the uprising Our politically na ve protagonist had his eyes opened The remainder of the book had new conflicts to add to a mix that already seemed saturated with them Willie s ambivalence about the English cause didn t set well with his father Sentiment in Ireland had swung against the Dublin Fusiliers that Willie felt duty bound to stick with to the end Nor did the English command give them much respect I wanted to tell a certain Major Stokes to stick it in his hole when he said What you Irish couldn t stand a little gas And as if that wasn t enough our young hero had girl troubles too The worst part of it all was how little of it Willie deserved He was such a good kidStories like this need to end the way authors want them to with readers reading their books to find out not with overzealous reviewers spilling the beans The only thing I ll add is that an emotional involvement on the reader s part is likelyOn a personal note my wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary with a trip to Ireland The love of literature there and of words in general even away from the pubs was one of the great things about the place They enjoy their history too with plenty of it around to engage them We learned a lot about the Easter Rising visiting the General Post Office where much of the rebellion took place Later we saw Kilmainham Gaol where many of the rebel leaders were imprisoned and in some cases executedThe gaol has been featured in several films including The Italian Job the original one Michael Collins and In the Name of the Father U2 also filmed a video there with Bono looking very much like a man of the 80s45 stars
