    1. I actually enjoyed this book than the first It delved into so many issues the gay community, AIDS, marital and familial struggles, mental institutionalization, feminism, immigration and racism And oh, I thought I cried when reading the first book, I cried here I predicted the patronage from the middle of the first book, but the truth about what really happened with Dan I didn t see coming I wanted a happy ending with Rory SO badly but I can see the bigger picture This book isn t about what s [...]


    2. Orna Ross has a gift for storytelling and her writing is superb While Before the Fall didn t have the same impact for me personally as her previous book, After The Rising, it s a must read to appreciate the full outcome of this compelling generational tale with its accompanying mystery And what an eye catching, gorgeous cover 3.5 stars


    3. It worked well reading this immediately after finishing After The Rising After the Rising as it follows on with events in Muckna seamlessly continuing the modern day 1995 story of Jo Devereux, who is still in Ireland researching into the family history and trying to deal with her feelings for her old love Rory O Donovan.As in the first volume of the trilogy the storyline jumps between locations and generations Continuing the family dramas, though this time concentrating on the characters of Peg [...]


    4. As the second book in the series, Ross doesn t disappoint Actually, she does a extraordinary job tying up the myriad of questions that impelled me to read book two, right after reading book one There was no momentum lost, a good reason not to delay between the two books.Ross s ability to weave her story on multiple levels is both impressive and alluring Both books really constitute a family mystery as the mystery unfolds, the reader experiences the discoveries bit by bit, over time There is no b [...]


    5. Orna Ross novel Before The Fall is a story that spans three generations and three countries with sweeping grandeur It is a story of love won and lost, hate, secrets kept and secrets revealed, war, birth and death, family dysfunction, and fierce independence I was compelled to read far into the night for want of knowing what was to come next I highly recommend Ms Ross novel, set in Ireland, the U.K and the United States Her use of the Irish language is genuine and intriguing which helps promote b [...]


    6. Didn t like this as much as the first book in the series It did answer most of the questions I had about the family situation and the Irish troubles except for two.First of all, about Rory He was one of the O Donovans but who were his parents Never did find the answer to that question Did I miss it somewhere As well, I never understood why Jo s mother disliked her so There never was a valid reason that I could see Jo was rather an unsympathetic character She made a mess of her life and I m not s [...]


    7. I found this a complex book to read and get into Listening to it with the text to speech facility on the Kindle was difficult because there were no breaks between the historical and modern sections This is a problem with this feature of Kindle which has yet to be resolved if blind users are to get the full benefit out of it Nevertheless, the story was well constructed and had a satisfying end i recommend it to readers who are familiar with Irish history for myself, I found the up to date section [...]


    8. This book is multi layered and is primarily about the strength of women and the threads that can hold a family together and tear it apart in times of crisis.I had no idea when I started this book that I would enjoy it so much This book has a lot to offer a reader, lyrical prose, mystery, family love and obligation,the love between sisters I was surprised at the strength and quality of the writing.I very much appreciated how skilfully the secrets mystery of the past was slowly revealed through le [...]


    9. Before the Fall is a sequel I hadn t read the first book, but this book is still perfectly fine as a stand alone novel Before the Fall is a wonderfully written novel about three generations of family Orna Ross is a great author and not only was this book good, it s made me want to find out about Irish history It was easy to get into and of course I couldn t put the book down until I finished it It s a good decent book worth reading.


    10. My sister had bought me this book and with her sense of reading I felt hesitant Then I started reading and I got hooked It was like I couldn t turn a page down REALLY cool book but it was a little sad.


    11. Took awhile for me to get into this book It was a good read over all, though It is a sequel, which I didn t realize until after beginning it I do think I will read book one, also, though.
