characters Thats That ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB How can we know who we are if we do not understand where we came from Colin Broderick grew up in Northern Ireland during the period of heightened tension and violence known as the Troubles Broderick's Catholic family lived in County Tyrone the heart of rebel country In That’s That he brings us into this world and delivers a deeply personal account of what it was like to come of age in the midst of a war that dragged on. Having already read Orangutan I was aware of Broderick s personality which I have to admit I didn t particularly like though I did admire the honesty he showed in that memoir This book his second memoir telling of his years growing up in Co Tyrone charts his formative years before his emigration to New YorkThis book was primarily written for the US market given the US English used throughout and didn t even go on sale in N Ireland for a long time after it was published elsewhere and I can understand why Broderick paints a very simplistic version of history which to a liberal inclusive person living in NI is depressing and indeed gets increasingly sickening as the book goes on A memoir is a personal recollection of events yes but too often in this book Broderick s bigoted view is portrayed as historical fact and having read many of the GR reviews his views are taken as so His assertion that all Catholics were advocating the IRA campaign in the 70s and 80s is simply wrong it was only after a ceasefire was declared in 1993 that Sinn Fein garnered any significant votes in the polls and likewise his Brits Out solving all the issues in the country flies in the face of polls that show that even a majority of Catholics in NI want to remain as part of the UKThere is no doubt that many injustices were served upon the Catholic community in NI in the past but a rounded notion of what life was like should be taken from books like Malachi O Doherty s The Telling Year Belfast 1972 or Henry McDonald s Colours Ireland From Bombs to Boom in both you ll get a working class Catholic s analysis of what went on without the underlying bigotry As for understanding the conflict here disregard everything Broderick says in this book and educate yourself with Making Sense of the Troubles a History of the Northern Ireland Conflict where a fair and very different analysis of some of the events Broderick portrays in the bookAs for the non political stuff in the book Broderick didn t go up in my estimation much from his later memoir his mother s desire to over protect him seemingly leaving him with a severe chip on his shoulder Like in the later memoir I did enjoy the stories from the everyday aspect of his life a lot but overall as you can probably tell I ve been left with a pretty bitter taste in my mouth particularly from the latter sections

characters Thats That ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ther Desperate to protect her children from harm she has little patience for Colin’s growing need to experience and understand all that is happening around them Spoken with stern finality That's that became the refrain of Colin's childhood      The first book to paint a detailed depiction of Northern Ireland's Troubles That’s That is told in the wry memorable voice of a man who's finally come to terms with his pa. I was lucky enough to win this book in a Goodreads giveaway which landed me a really cool uncorrected proof copy which is the greatest thing ever in and of itself because I am a true nerd and appreciate such things Aside from being uite happy just for that reason alone I was also very pleased that this book turned out to be a really great book and one that I am so glad that I got the chance to readThe first thing that struck me about this book was that it started out with a wonderful little history lesson The first chapter not a grueling multi chapter history lesson gives you just enough information that you get a good idea of historically built up hatred and how it managed to keep on building over the years for one reason or another I m simplifying here because as you know if you read my reviews ever I am a I am not telling you the juicy details because you need to read it for yourself to find out what happens but I ll give you just a little bit then the rest is up to you type of person I hate reviews that ruin things so I won t ruin anything if I can help it So as I was typing there the beginning gives you a nice bit of history to get you going so that you can be nice and prepared to understand the storyThis book is really uniue in that it is told from the perspective of one that is brought up in Ireland at the time of extreme violence and hardship known as the Troubles Personally I d not really heard too much of this myself just the basic stuff that you hear from the parentsgrandparents passed down but not really much of anything Having never taking the time to understand it all this book really opened my eyes and in many ways taught me a lot about the strife that took place History isn t all this book is about of course Just I m a bit of a history fan especially when I m learning something new so that just stuck out a lot However it s also a brilliant coming of age story The true story of boy who grew up Catholic with a mother that seemed rather overbearing though looking back she may have been overbearing and strict but when it s done out of love sometimes we don t see it as harmful in the middle of a most tumultuous period in Irish history Through this book the reader travels from the very beginning of well history I suppose and then to the birth of the author all the way to the end where a very important choice is made which I won t give away as per my above mentioned rule This is an extremely well written book The author is an extremely talented writer who is able to make the words on the page seem like they are coming to life The reader is taken on a journey the journey the author has already taken from the safety of their own home or wherever they may be reading from and assuming they are in a safe location when doing so This is a great memoir and it has made me realize that at some point I might just have to get the authors other book Orangutan and see where that one can take the reader as well

I don t have a clue how to write a review for this book I liked it I don t know how to say that I liked it To be a little creative I suppose I m just going to talk to the authorDear Mr BroderickI think this seems like a good way to start a review of your book though I m torn on whether to call you Mr Broderick due to the level of respect I have for you or Colin for how much I feel like I know you after reading your book Without getting too lost on this one point I want to say that in the former case I want to respect you for all of the crap you ve been through in your life Your mother was tough on you but you did a marvelous job of making me love her By the time I reached the end of the book Ierdiscovered a great deal of dust in the room with me I also found even dust in the room when you started talking about your friends You ve endured horrid situations I cannot imagine which is why I know that if we ever were to meet I would just have to keep my distance You made it clear in the book that you have a certain distrust of other people I totally got that from your exploration of your lifeOn the other hand I also feel like I personally know you You and I went through a lot in your book I ve been reading history after history or Ireland and haven t really felt a thing for the country While reading the histories I came to realize that it is a beautiful place with a tragic history That s as far as I got However in the first twenty pages of your book I came to see the history in an entirely new light Your work made me care about Ireland because you took me on a grand tour of its places and people By the end of your book I wanted to take up arms with you no spoilers there because I could feel your pain I had learned the details of your country before but your work showed me its soul For that I feel that I deserve to call you ColinI also want to call you Colin because I think you re a brilliant storyteller If I can be a bit blunt you re not the best writer I ve ever read but in fairness I ve read some of the best You get a little too carried away with alliteration in some places and you almost force a creative phrase here and there But Collin my man you ve got a knack for telling an entertaining story You can conjure a scene from nothing and you can make me care about a distant land just by showing me your daily life Just to take one example your explanation of Dopey Dick s visit made me see how artificial The Troubles capitals on both were people stopped and stared and laughed and celebrated this stupid stupid whale On the other hand your explanation of roadside stops and the nightly news of death spawned in me a hatred of the occupiers of your country Somewhere in the middle of this you made me realize why you took up drinking drugs and girlsThank you for taking me on this journey Never mind if I don t know how to react to you for your work speaks volumes about your life and your nation You should be proud of what you ve accomplished as it is certainly one of the best autobiographies that I ve ever read I hope it remains as popular as it seems to now be It deserves any accolades others are willing to shower upon itThis has rambled a bit In short thank you for sharingBest An Appreciative Reader
