This book is fantastic. Ferguson tells the story of this tragedy with respect & feeling. It tears your heart out. He interweaves the tale with touches of everyday humour and running gags that bring pleasure to what would be a very hard read. I need more of this author.

I'm not leaving a review because I didn't finish reading this. I'm a fan of Will Ferguson and his utter Canadianness makes me feel a bit bad about my own. Which I'm certain is not his intention. But there you go.

Some authors write history books, some write travel narratives, others write books of humor, but author Will Ferguson, combines them all into his travel books. As good as Hitching Rides with Buddha was telling the story of the authors hitch hiking odyssey from the south of Japan, all the way to the very north end, Beyond Belfast is even better! A 560 mile walk around Northern Ireland, encompassing as much of the geography, the people, the history and the culture as is possible. The author does his best to explain what caused "the Troubles" from the very beginning of the country up through the 30 years of the troubles and beyond. He does the whole book in a very entertaining and readable style, that at times will have you laughing out loud- such as death by sausage- to the somber tone when discussing the senseless butchering of often times innocent people during "The Troubles". The descriptions of what a beautiful country Northern Ireland is and the warmth and hospitality of the people Protestant and Catholic alike as well as the quirkiness and craziness that is there, makes for an exceptional piece of storytelling. This is definitely a book worth reading!… (mere)
