Comments to eBook The Bogman
Tantil
Walter Macken's sentences are wonderfully crafted and sound like an old country Irishman is sitting by the fire and telling you a story, full of Irish lifestyle references and sly sense of humor. I liked the story of what it was like to live in a small Irish village very much, with its social mores, customs and personalities, but I like the way he told it even more.

Truly a wonderful novel...the prose is lilting and evocative. Like many Irish stories, sadness always lurks behind the humor. This novel has a great storyline and is, unfortunately, a fast read. I wanted to keep reading !

These books were in good condition; they arrived quickly and were well written. I thought I had ordered one but ended up with two and gave the extra one to a friend.

As an Irish person this book was of particular interest to me.
Bit of an eye opener for one who came from the city .
I liked the book .Its well written with a nice romance thrown in .
Think you would have to be Irish though to understand the language..

The historical context for this novel set in 20th century provincial, rural Ireland, belies the extraordinary relevance it has to the state of the human condition. This is one of those novels which subtly interweave levels of meaning, knowledge, and emotionality, all through the standard conventions of plot--ultimately leaving an indelible impression regarding not only the social conditions of the people and period described, but also the universal contradictions which all people must deal with. Highly recommended read.
