    Epub Borstal Boy Kindle ↠ Ð amateur sleuth.co borstal epub, Borstal Boy EpubBorstal Boy sat for many a year on my to be read bookcase due to its inclusion on the 1001 books one must read before death a list which has caused me all sorts of grief and happiness Due to the urgent need to reclaim space I grabbed it for a 8 hour flight much as one would shuffle up to a particularly healthy kale salad I presumed it would be good for me but there was little joyHaving finished it and pondered over it I am glad i read it but it is an unsettling book Borstal Boy is an autobiographical account of Brendan Behans arrest in Liverpool in 1939 for owning bombmaking material as part of an apparantly unauthorized solo mission to set off bombs for the IRA and subseuent imprisonmentThe oddity of this book particularly after the drumroll of sadness

Or is it that subtlety is lost on them? Was also a bit shocked to hear it described as 'boring' Perhaps folk's appetites have been so dulled by misery porn that they can't cope with than a straight forward catalogue of horrors Shame that because it means the nuances and layers in this work have passed them by
