    Welcome back to the village of Ballybucklebo. Come and say hello again to Dr. O'Reilly's odd-as-two-left-feet patients; his housekeeper, Mrs. "Kinky" Kinkaid; and O'Reilly's pets: Arthur Guinness, the beer-swilling black Lab, and Lady MacBeth, the demonically possessed white cat. And of course, to young Dr. Barry Laverty. After Barry's first month as an assistant to crusty Dr. O'Reilly, he has been offered a permanent spot. But Laverty's excitement is dashed when one of his patients unexpectedly dies.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Each character has his/her flaws and virtues and we truly care about each one. The main plot and all the smaller ones are suspenseful or entertaining or uplifting or just downright amusing. The narrator is tops. I highly recommend this book for its joyful approach to life.

    Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

    Just fabulous. Funny, irreverent, complex, full of twists and turns and more great language than you'll find in a book twice its size. Don't hesitate to get this book.

  • Princes of Ireland: The Dublin Saga

    • UNABRIDGED (25 hrs and 53 mins)

    Story

    The saga begins in tribal, pre-Christian Ireland during the reign of the fierce and mighty High Kings at Tara, with the tale of two lovers whose travails cleverly echo the ancient Celtic legend of Cuchulainn. From that stirring beginning, Rutherfurd takes the reader on a powerfully imagined journey through the centuries. Through the interlocking stories of a memorable cast of characters we see Ireland through the lens of its greatest city.

    I found my attention wandering. I have a good understanding of Irish history and thought a historical novel would enhance my appreciation of it but I often times realized hundreds of years had past and I had lost the thread of the narrative. Didn't enjoy the reader either---the voice he would use for women made them sound old and shrewish, no matter what their age was in the story.
