    1. "Is Paddie getting a bit odd of himself?"I loved this book. It has captured a moment in time that Ireland has lost for ever, for better or worse. The age of the romantic poet; the mystic of the little hills is gone now and for ever. The first 200 pages or so are a semi fictionalised account of his youth, while the remainder of the book is more like an autobiography, telling how he drifted into the literary world (With some difficulty) and how he literally forced himself off of his 20 acre farm. [...]


    2. This book is full of charm and humour. Kavanagh writes about his early life on the farm in Monaghan, and his anecdotes and characters are well chosen, wonderfully drawn. It's the story of a writer's journey, the creation of a writer, and there are lovely, artful phrases salted throughout. His bond to his home place is developed patiently and convincingly, as he tells stories of market days, school years, seasonal work, and neighbour folk. He makes excellent use of the few times he goes a journey [...]


    3. An enjoyable insight into the upbringing of Patrick Kavanagh. Each chapter dealt with perhaps overly simple things but from these Kavanagh brightens the pages with a host of characters and conflicts whether his own or others. You get a good feel of what life would be like as a poor Irish farmer at the begining of the 20th century. The difference of a century is astounding with how his father was the only person in possession of a decent clock for miles with a 'good' accuracy of half an hour. Thi [...]


    4. I fucking love this book. It's a funny, witty read and it gives a fascinating insight into what life was like in rural Ireland during the early 1900s. I mean, if you were gonna write a book about rural Ireland in that time then this should be on your research list, but it's by no means some academic borefest. For example, there's a bit about some builders coming round to build a house or a shed, or something, and they have to be supplied with drink for the duration of the job! Awesome! Fuck you [...]


    5. If you're looking for an account of everyday life in rural Ireland in the 1910-20s this is pretty good. However I found the pace slow and no real direction to the narrative. After a chapter solely about a day picking turnips i gave up. Early on there is some reference about sexual abuse at the hands of the clergy dealt with in a very off-the-cuff way, almost accepting way. Different times.


    6. Excellent book.It is a bit hard to appreciate life-styleWalking a journey which now takes 2 and a half hours by car!It is an excellent book despite hearing second-hand how obnoxious the author could be from various sources!Would recommend it!


    7. I had foolishly never read Patrick Kavanagh until now. He is a wonderful writer - he gives us a great view of what it was like to grow up in rural Ireland in the early 20th century. Unlike many of the great Irish writers, Kavanagh has a rural background, and his perceptions of life are great
