The Year Of The French: A Novel by Thomas Flanagan


The Year Of The French: A NovelThe Year Of The French: A Novel by Thomas Flanagan

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Page 151:

“Are they the soldiers from the ships?” “Yes,” MacCarthy said. “French soldiers, the French have landed.”

The plot describes the French invasion of Ireland and the rebellion by the native Irish also know as The Races of Castlebar, County Mayo.

The story itself is quite interesting even if an American-born writer wrote it.

However, it’s not an easy book to read since it has 5 different narrators and at least 60 characters.

A TV series The Year of the French (1982) was made based on this book.

  1. Bit confused…You’ve linked up to the Mount TBR Challenge Checkpoint post….but I don’t see a Checkpoint post. To count for the Challenge, there must be a link to a specific post about your Mount TBR Challenge progress (not to the home page in general). The challenge needs to be mentioned in the post in some way–you can link to a specific book you’ve read for the challenge, tell us how many books you’ve read, etc.–but it’s got to be there).
