Due to a sudden, unexpected passing in the family a few years ago and another more recently and my subsequent (mental) health issues stemming from that, I was unable to download this book in time to review it before it was archived as I did not visit this site for several years after the bereavements. This meant I didn't read or venture onto netgalley for years as not only did it remind me of that person as they shared my passion for reading, but I also struggled to maintain interest in anything due to overwhelming depression. I was therefore unable to download this title in time and so I couldn't give a review as it wasn't successfully acquired before it was archived. The second issue that has happened with some of my other books is that I had them downloaded to one particular device and said device is now defunct, so I have no access to those books anymore, sadly.

This means I can't leave an accurate reflection of my feelings towards the book as I am unable to read it now and so I am leaving a message of explanation instead. I am now back to reading and reviewing full time as once considerable time had passed I have found that books have been helping me significantly in terms of my mindset and mental health - this was after having no interest in anything for quite a number of years after the passings. Anything requested and approved will be read and a review written and posted to Amazon (where I am a Hall of Famer & Top Reviewer), Goodreads (where I have several thousand friends and the same amount who follow my reviews) and Waterstones (or Barnes & Noble if the publisher is American based). Thank you for the opportunity and apologies for the inconvenience

I read thís book as part of the Irish Readathon to cover "a book set in Northern Ireland." 

This covers the prospect and concept of a united Ireland, seen through the eyes of someone from Northern Ireland, and does so with great humour as well as so much information. 

As much as myself travelling to Belfast is eye opening, it was also great to see Glenn's thoughts and reactions to and in rural Ireland.

I received an advance copy of, The Last Irish Question, by Glen Patterson.  I thought this book was going to be great. I was sorely mistaken.  An awful book. I did not like the language or his sense of humor.

Thank you NetGalley and Head of Zeus Ltd for a copy of “The Last Irish Question Will Six Into Twenty-Six Ever Go? in exchange for my honest opinion. 

This book takes a look at all aspects of Northern Ireland and Ireland from sports to politics, Covid to religion. If you would like to learn more about this amazing place, this book takes a serious but at times humorous look at the past, present and future.
