    ePUB Gillian O'Brien ì Blood Runs Green ePUB Ü Blood Runs Epub / ì blood ebok, runs pdf, green mobile, Blood Runs book, Blood Runs Green KindleA well researched but at times a bit too detailed and tangential about yet another long forgotten crime of the century The underpinnings of the notorious Clan na Gael seemed to me to be a bit over wrought and not necessary to tell the story By the time Author O'Brien finally gets to the trial I was at the point of just get on with it even the book runs at just over 200 pages The story will however make me a bit ueasy the next time I find myself in a Chicago Irish bar

    ePUB Gillian O'Brien ì Blood Runs Green ePUB Ü Blood Runs Epub / ì blood ebok, runs pdf, green mobile, Blood Runs book, Blood Runs Green KindleThis is a well written and interesting book about the murder of Dr P H Cronin yet another Crime of the Century that no one's ever heard of Cronin's murder is inextricably bound up in the affairs of the Clan na Gael so I learned a great deal about Irish Republicanism in Gilded Age Chicago I already knew about Gilded Age corruption but this did certainly provide a number of new examples O'Brien is very good at examining and explaining ramifications both in the causes of Cronin's murder and in the conseuences and she keeps track the whole time of how the Chicago newspapers both re

    ePUB Gillian O'Brien ì Blood Runs Green ePUB Ü Blood Runs Epub / ì blood ebok, runs pdf, green mobile, Blood Runs book, Blood Runs Green KindleThis would have been an excellent article but as a book even a book of just 200 pages there just wasn't enough meat to the story The author had to fill it with tons of characters and info that really had no importance to the story One reviewer used the word tedious to describe the book in her review I wholeheartedly agree That is the perfect word to describe reading this book

    ePUB Gillian O'Brien ì Blood Runs Green ePUB Ü Blood Runs Epub / ì blood ebok, runs pdf, green mobile, Blood Runs book, Blood Runs Green KindleI like to read about Old Chicago and its history I heard about this book on NPR and decided I had to read it I must say I was disappointed The author did a great job or research but in the end the story behind the murder of Dr Cronin was just not that intriguing a subject for a full length book It is a good history of the American Irish Independence movement in the late 1800s but I kept waiting for something dramatic to happen and it never did I was expecting an Erik Larson type experience and this book doesn't come close to delivering it

    ePUB Gillian O'Brien ì Blood Runs Green ePUB Ü Blood Runs Epub / ì blood ebok, runs pdf, green mobile, Blood Runs book, Blood Runs Green KindleA large portion of this work concerns itself with the three Irish societies that held sway in Chicago during the Gilded Ages Clan na Gael the secret Irish republican society founded in New York in 1867 sought to bring

    ePUB Gillian O'Brien ì Blood Runs Green ePUB Ü Blood Runs Epub / ì blood ebok, runs pdf, green mobile, Blood Runs book, Blood Runs Green KindleReally 35 stars Another difficult read I had recently finished The Devil's Gentleman by Harold Schecter and hoped this would be similar Unfortunately O'Brien doesn't bring to life 1890s Chicago as well as Schecter brings to life a certain period I did learn a lot about the Irish in Chicago and secret societies of the time But I don't think it would have all made as much sense if I hadn't taken Revolution and Nationalism in Ireland 1780 on thirty years ago in college And that was pretty sketchy memory Supposedly this was a crime that riveted America in the 1890s but it really wasn't that interesting or exciting My biggest take away like in The Devil's Gentleman was the coverage of US news reporting in the 1890s which makes today's chants of fake news seem laughable Or really nothing has changed at all about mainstream media
