    The original Irish misery memoir, forever drilled into my memory This book has scarred generations of Irish people, not just with its unrelenting miserable storyline, but with turgid prose and unbelievably boring events It begins when, suddenly, nothing happened It then continued to not happen for the rest of the book, broken occasionally with the odd death.I would also add that Peig herself comes across as quite unlikeable.Awful.

    Enforced reading for anyone learning Irish in school Two years worth of unintelligible text used as a method of torture by way of total boredom It s typical that the only action in the most well known autobiography in Ireland is when the subject once falls into a ditch To be approached with extreme caution.

    I read this for my leaving cert in school But I should say than likely I studied the notes the teacher gave us I bought it in English a couple of years ago and read it properly A very enjoyable read and a real eye opener as to how difficult life was in Peig Sayers time Would definitely recommend it.

    If you want to be transported to a tiny island in the middle of the Irish Sea where there is no priest, no teacher, no doctor just 150 subsistence farmers and herders, a king, and a couple of incredible storytellers, this is the book for you In language that will make you weep for its sheer beauty and inventiveness, Peig paints a stunning picture of a life of great tragedy and triumphant humor Full of wisdom and endurance

    I, too, read this as a set text in Irish when at school Fortunately, we had a gifted teacher who brought the text to life for us and gave us a fascinating insight into the trials, tribulations and joys of rural life in Ireland at that time A visit later in life to the Dingle peninsula including a spell with an Irish speaking family brought back memories of this book.

    The most boring book ever written.

    This is a profoundly important book I loved it when I studied for the Leaving Cert in 1967 and I still love it It really needs to be read in Irish, using this translation for reference if you need it, and then the distant voice of your Irish identity will come to you from nearly 150 years ago It is so poignant and emotionally touching to go back to 1877 and read of a little four year old girl who can t wait to get to school so that she can have her own book filled with coloured pictures The cover was red When she stole a piece of sweet cake from an old woman in a smoke filled cottage she knew, as she said, that Someone was watching She remembered that theft years later when she was seventeen on her return home after four years in service in Dingle The important issues of the day memories of the famine that her parents endured and the ethics of stealing food to stay alive, the Land League, evictions, and emigration are all interwoven into the life of a young girl as she looks to the future And it was a future that saw major upheaval in Ireland, the seeds of which were sown in the unrest she describes so well He brother arranged her marriage to a man from one of the Blasket islands I will leave the stories from that island for you to hear through the voice of the great story teller.

    This book was recommended to me by a tour guide on our tour of the Dingle Peninsula, Ireland It is the autobiography of a woman who used to live on the Dingle Peninsula before her marriage and then married a fisherman and moved to the The Great Blasket Island visible from the tip of the Dingle Peninsula This book describes a very difficult life both on Dingle and on the Blasket Island but there s a love of land and family that is easily understood after a visit to the Dingle Peninsula I don t think I would have appreciated this book without understanding the Irish Catholic faith and without having visited that area of Ireland.

    Although I understand this is a text used in Ireland to teach Irish, I found it fairly enjoyable Don t expect a modern expose style autobiography it s a set of short stories about Sayers life and her neighbors lives The title is also a little misleading she doesn t actually get to the Blasket Island until halfway through the book.The beginning is a little slow going, but the pace really picks up about a third of the way in I found it most fascinating for the detailed first hand look at what life was like for the poor people in the west of Ireland during her time She writes of the childhood of the first generation after the Famine through to a period of time where cars were becoming common, which is a pretty unique perspective.
