    MOBI Cré na Cille PDF/EPUB ´ Cré na eBook à ç ahali.co cré mobile, cille pdf, Cré na mobile, Cré na Cille KindleA very uniue idea and style that I felt was very well translated by Titley as its meaning is very difficult to interpret in Irish never mind in English My only ualm is that it is unclear aside from the odd uirk to ascertain who is speaking in the novel when the story is told in a constant dialogue with no speakers obviously labelled At the same time this is part of the book's uniue style yet I couldn't help but find it frustrating and unfocused at times I'll have to read the Irish original soon so I can compare both editions though maybe it will give me some insight into the work Overall it is a very well done and entertaining read and I am only ever delighted to see work being done to bridge the literary gap between English and Irish

    MOBI Cré na Cille PDF/EPUB ´ Cré na eBook à ç ahali.co cré mobile, cille pdf, Cré na mobile, Cré na Cille KindleAccording to Colm Toíbín this book is “the greatest novel to be written in the Irish language” I have to take his word for that as I’ve never come across any other book originally written in Irish but certainly it’s an unusual and uite distinctive novel that feels very Irish to me Shades of Joyce and Beckett for sure Toíbín also claims that it’s “amongst the best books to come out of Ireland in the twentieth century” Praise indeed It was published in 1949 but has only now been translated into English The author is one of the most significant writers in the Irish language but little known outside his native land That might well change with this translation I hope so as it’s a book well worth discovering However I can’t say that I actually enjoyed it although I certainly appreciated its originality Told entirely in dialogue with no narration it certainly taxes the reader’s concentration trying to keep up with who is talking All the characters are dead
