Sorry about that-- I hit "return" prematurely, and only posted the text of Jamie's original message.

I just finished the book this morning, and I won't say too much about the ending, though I was certainly expecting something like that to happen. It does leave a bit of a hollow feeling, but I'm happy to say that part of it is that the story has come to an end. This book I literally had to be torn away from. Not bad for something I had heard vaguely about and decided finally to pick up in an Edinburgh bookshop.

I appreciated it very much, not just from the gay standpoint, but also that there was so much of the history wrapped into it. I'm now expecting I'll be looking into the Easter Rising more seriously, as I've never read any histories about it. Of course, going back to school in the fall, I'm not sure how much time I'll have, but we'll see.

What is this Irish phrase? Another thing I appreciated is the Irish that appeared. I'm studying Scots Gaelic on my own right now, and I'll be picking up formal courses at the university in the fall.

Tapadh leat airson an leabhar seo, a Jamie! (I've never studied Irish, so you'll have to settle for Scots Gaelic, I'm afraid.)

Nathan
