★★★★✩ What better book to read on St. Patrick’s Day than [b:Borstal Boy|17622659|Borstal Boy|Brendan Behan|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1363572081s/17622659.jpg|2579470], by [a:Brendan Behan|41348|Brendan Behan|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1286716301p2/41348.jpg]? Niall Tóibín, Irish comedian and actor, narrates this one that is semi-autobiographical story of the author. After committing murder via an IRA bomb, a 16 year old boy is locked-up in three English detention institutions during WWII. However, Mr. Tóibín's accent (depending on the dialect he is doing) is so thick, I had to play back parts, though I did get used to it. Still, wonderful dialogue, jokes, slang words, and few great songs sung in Irish in this once banned book.
