A Star Called Henry
A Star Called Henry By Doyle, Roddy, 1958- Book - 1999 | 1st Canadian ed. --

This book takes us into the life of Henry Smart who faces a life of poverty growing up in the poverty of Ireland in the early 1900s. He comes to follow in his own father's footsteps (wooden leg in hand) as an escapist, who joins the Irish Republican Army as a hitman. It was an enjoyable read, but Dowell's writing will not serve as an enticement for me to read the next two books in this trilogy. (Nov 2006)
