    1 thought on “Silver's City

    1. Not sure where I read about this book, which is set in Belfast and includes elements of the paramilitary underbelly that has blighted the city since the late 1960s. I enjoyed 'Liberty Lad' by the same author, but really didn't warm to this one and somehow managed to get bored, no mean feat in an 180 page story. Not for me.

    2.

Military discipline, reading and solitary thinking mean that the man who is busted out is far different form the young man who went in. Even more striking is the difference between what the city was and what it has become. "It began to see [...]
