BOOK A Long Long Way – dedelicate.com

This was short listed for the 2005 Man Booker I m certain it will be among my top five reads of 2008It s the story of a young Irish soldier caught between the warfields of Belgium and the battle raging at home between the royalists and the nationalists It s the most graphic and revealing treatment of WWI I ve encountered articularly of trench warfare and the horrors of mustard gas It amazes me that anyone survived and sickens me how hundreds of thousands of young men were simply led to slaughter by colluding governmentsDespite the grim brutality of the subject the writing is so lyrical and beautiful the characters so full of hope and spirit Portions of it read almost like Not for Nothing poetry yet the language is simple and earthyI was frustrated by the glimpses of the 1916 Easter Uprising and the conflict that set Irish against Irish as if the reader already had a tacit understanding of that hi 45 Stars He was born in the dying days It was the withering end of 1896 He was called William after the long dead Orange King because his father took an interest in such distant matters He was a little baby and would be always a little boy He was like the thin upper arm of a beggar with a few meager bones shot through himrovisional and bare When he broke from his mother he made a mewling sound like a wounded cat over and over That was the night of a storm that would not be a famous storm But for all that it rattled the last leaves out of the regal oaks in the old leasure gardens behind the hospital and it drove the wet harvest along the gutters and into the gaping drains and down into the unknown avenues of the great sewers The blood of births was sluiced down there too and all the many liuids of humanity but the salt sea at Ringsend took everything eually And as time asses William Dunne is among all those boys of Europe born in those time the ones whose fate was written in a ferocious chapter of the book of life Those millions of mothers and their million gallons of mother s milk millions of instances of small talk and baby talk beatings and kisses ganseys and shoes Superman/Doomsday piled up in history in great ruined heaps with a loud and broken music human stories told for nothing for ashes for death s amusement flung on the mighty scrapheap of souls all those million boys in all their humours to be milled by the mill stones of a coming war His father was aoliceman and he had hoped that Willie would grow to be tall enough to follow in his footsteps which would not come to Summers Family Affair pass a crushing disappointment to his father Willie then twelve would lose his mother that same year the year his youngest sister was born In the years that followed the memory of his mother was like a dark song that made him cry in his bed alone strong though he was and all of sixteenThis story which follows Willie along with too many other young Irish men boys really as they go off to fight with the British army in World War I and as that April rolls around a war begins at home during Easter Week of 1916 The Easter Rising Between your own countrymen deriding you for being in the army and the army deriding you for your own slaughter a man didn t know what to be thinking A man s mind could be roaring out inain of a sort The fact that the war didn t make a jot of sense any hardly came into it While this story is about the war the wars on both sides of these waters Barry s writing is so oetic while at the same time bringing the war in all its gruesome darkness to light It s shared through Willie s youthful and still ure somewhat na ve eyes So that the war itself the horror that surrounds and sometimes destroys these men shared through his eyes is softened It is war after all and there is no escaping the fact that many will not return home but again he shares his Women on the Hill personal feelings anderspective which are filled with these men lost to the war There are also moments where his focus is on Gretta Willie s reminiscences of his love for her of the moments he holds close to his heart hoping she will write soon and hoping even that she will wait for his returnWhile this didn t uite live up to Days Without End for me I loved this story and loved following Willie s journey as a young fairly na ve young man as this begins through these dark days of war 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 Waiting for Aphrodite policeman in Dublin but who is old enough to volunteer and fight for England in World War 1 and so Willie lea On completionI thoroughly loved this book I finished listening to it and was desperate for I re listened to the last chapters Then I thought I simply cannot leave this book I searched to see what other books Sebastian Barry has written This is the first of a trilogy followed by first Annie Dunne and then On Canaan s Side I read what these books were about The central theme of these books diverge they are not about WW1 And this is the topic that I want of So I checked out The Absolutist and even listened to the narration at Audible Again I felt let down John Cormack s narration of A Long Long Way had been superb The snippet of The Absolutist just could not compare Was it the narrator that I had fallen in love with I

Ive of three different nationalities Canadian French and German respectively but they share the common theme of ignoring grand strategy and spending little time on tactics while devoting most of their attention to the common soldier And the experiences of the soldiers in the trenches no matter their nationali 5 A sorrowful gut wrenching tale of the horrors of WWI and the boys who went off to fight for King and Country hoping to come into their bloody manhood at last The author expertly leads the reader through gruesome warfare in the trenches with beautiful Paris Encore (Zion Covenant, prose and likable but doomed characters The dawn and horror of chemical warfare makes its deadly debut The gas boiled in like a familiar ogre With the same stately gracelessness it rolled to the edge ofarapet and then like the heads of a many headed creature it toppled gently forward and sank down to join the waiting men The evil gas lay sown in the trench like a bedspread and as gas came over it filled the trench to the brim and Boyfriends from Hell passed on then its ghostly hordes to the support lines and the reserve lines ambitious for choice murders That s just the beginning as Barry will not spare the reader the horror that comes and I do not use that word lightly Young boys from Ireland are fighting only to learn that at the same time others back home are battling for Home Rule during the Easter Rising They will arrive home on leave only to be thought traitors worth killing by some and then return to the front for killing of their ownDeserving of 5 stars but the subject matter and inevitable outcome sucked the life right out of my soul Based on my emotional state it rates the 1 star I did not like it but the writing the writing the writing I have never read a better book on the devastation of war and I never want to read another one like it everAfterwards Imagine if they had a war and no one showed up It just confounds me how many generations of young men have been willing to forfeit theirrecious lives and others continue to manufacture and use such malevolent weapons to this day Unbelievably I saw a Battered Not Broken promotional video Men of War MUSTARD

when life is all first times The Algerians were just over to his right The Algerians sang fine strange songs most of the day and at night now he could hear them laughing and talking in a sort of endless excitementThe trench was soon looking fairly smartThat s fucking better now said the sergeant major religiouslyThey did all that and then lurked in theerfected trench getting muggy like old boxers The The Contemporaries poor human mindlayed ueer tricks and you could forget even your name betimes and even the UML Weekend Crash Course [With CDROM] point of being there aside enduring the unstoppable blather of the guns What day oftentimes it was Willie would forgetThen a different day arrived Everyone had had a lash of tea and there was a lot of farting going on after the big yellow beans that had come up around twelve As usual after they had eaten they were beginning to look at each other and think this St Julian wasn t the worstlace they d been in It was the essential illusion bestowed on them by full stomachsA breeze had Steampunk Erotica pushed through the tall grasses all day There was a yellow flower everywhere with a hundred tiny blooms on it The caterpillars loved them There were millions of caterpillars the same yellow as the flowers It was a yellow worldCaptain Pasley was in his new dugout writing his forms Every last thing that came in and every last thing that went out was accounted for Item and bodies Captain Pasley of course was obliged to read all the letters the men sent home and he did word for blessed word He thought it might break a man s heart to read them sometimes there was something awfully sad about some of the soldiers letters They didn t mean to make them sad which gave their efforts to be manly and cheerful a melancholy tinge But it had to be faced God help them they were funny enough efforts sometimes Some men wrote a letter as formal as a bishop some tried to write the inside of their heads like that young Willie Dunne It was a curiosityThe yellow cloud was noticed first by Christy Moran because he was standing on the fire step with his less than handy mirror arrangement looking out across the uiet battlefield That little breeze had freshened and it blew now against the ratty hair that dropped out of Christy Moran s hat here and there So the breeze was of a wind and was blowing full on against Christy s hat and mirror but it was nothing remarkableWhat was remarkable was the strange yellow tinged cloud that had just appeared from nowhere like a sea fog But not like a fog really he knew what a flaming fog looked like for God s sake being born and bred near the sea in fucking Kingstown He watched for a few seconds in his mirror straining to see and straining to understand It was about four o clock and all aseaceful as anything Not even the guns were firing now The caterpillars foamed on the yellow flowersAnd the grass died in the Poker Slave path of the cloud That was only Christy Moran s impression maybe he hoiked down the mirror a moment and wiped it clean with his cleanish sleeve Back up it went The cloud didn t look too deep but it was as wide as the eye could see Christy Moran was absolutely certain now he could see figures moving in the yellow smoke It must be some sort of way of hiding the advancing men he was thinking some new fashionediece of warfare The best book I ve read in a handful of yearsI was moved beyond words by the lyrical beauty of the To the Golden Shore prose in this novel and by the way it shredded every sentimental thought I d ever had about the First World War the sentimentality of bravery and morality and justice and incorruptibility Barry s book created fresh wounds within me and healed them later within the samearagraph only to create a general ache and
