Beyond Belfast A 560 Mile Journey Across Northern Ireland On Sore Feet review ✓ 109 read Û E-book, or Kindle E-pub ↠ Will Ferguson Will Ferguson ↠ 9 review Offbeat charming and filled with humour and insight Beyond Belfast is the story of one man’s misguided attempt at walking the Ulster Way “the longest waymarked trail in the British Isles” It’s a journey that takes Will Ferguson through the small towns and half forgotten vill. I guess I should start this review off with a confession I know almost nothing about Irish history Even the recent events And considering how heavily the conflicts are woven into Beyond Belfast this lack put me at a disadvantage for following parts of the story I kept wishing for a map and a history book to add background The way that Ferguson weaves the bombings violence and the ingrained bitterness into his walk through Northern Ireland wasn t at all what I was expecting when I picked up this book He originally crosses the pond to shed some light on his grandfather s past but that uickly becomes a subplot It pales in comparison to Northern Ireland s history to their troubles It haunts nearly every step he takes I had no idea how pervasive and deadly the troubles were Beyond Belfast really opened my eyes Speaking of other eye openers Ferguson s own struggle to walk and complete the Ulster Way was not something I think either of us expected In spite of being euipped with the latest maps from a couple different sources Ferguson barely managed to finish the Ulster Way Sections had overgrown were criss crossed by fences and rivers and highways ran through bogs or were so poorly marked they were impossible to follow Now Ferguson goes back eight years later and drives portions of the trail and mentions the Irish government making plans to improve the Ulster Way so perhaps it s better now But reading Ferguson s experience definitely didn t encourage me to rush out and buy a plane ticket and a backpack This might be one of those adventures that s best experienced from an armchair With a big cup of sun dappled tea

Gypsysmom lent me this book from her permanent collection and it sounded so good I started reading it almost right away appropriately on St Patrick s Day How could I resist a book by an author described as a Canadian Bill Bryson This was supposed to be funny and I was in need of a few laughs And I did laugh out loud on several occasions Having spent uite a bit of time in the UK I am always highly amused by cold toast jokes As well as making me laugh the book also made me shake my head at times the Troubles seem incomprehensible to an outsider I well remember the awful bombing in Omagh because we were in the UK when it happened The story of Ferguson s search for his roots adds a fascinating element to his account of his travels I really enjoyed my trip around Ulster but I m glad to have experienced it from my comfy spot on the family room couch dry and snug I don t think I would have endured long in the mist fog drizzle and rain up to my knees in bog It was definitely worth looking at the slide show on the author s web site and I also enjoyed listening to the CBC interview
