Voices of Northern Ireland: Growing Up in a Troubled Land by Carolyn Meyer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Whew, this book was full of bitterness. It was written in 1992, but I'm pretty sure I won't see much of the attitude seen in this book in northern Ireland in 2015. The author did interview a lot of Catholic and Protestant students and adults, but she truly had a difficult time understanding why there was violence. After reading this, I'm wondering if the current peace is partly because the Irish don't care as much about religion anymore. I'm looking forward to finding out more.
