Some great tales in here but the narration is deeply handicapped by grammatical errors and worse than that a ton of horseshit recreated dialogue on the part of the author This book could lose 70 pages easily and be all the better for it

Paddy Whacked The Untold Story of the Irish American GangsterRanean godfather; Big Bill Dwyer New York's most notorious rumrunner during Prohibition; Mickey Featherstone troubled Vietnam vet turned Westies gang leader; and James Whitey Bulger the ruthless and untouchable Southie legend Stretching from the earliest New York and New Orleans stree. The actual content was very interesting but the manner in which it was given was lacking In the first half of the book English proved that he was definitely not a biased journalist He wasn't just giving us a history He was telling us the story of his heroes English looked up to these guys so much that he even tried to make Mad Dog Coll look sympathetic When he wasn't extolling the greatness of these early Irish criminals he was making sure to tell us how much greater they really were than the Italians It was like he was writing the Irish answer to The Godfather except Puzo's fare was fiction and English's book is biased reality It wasn't until he reached current Irish mobsters that English lost his tone of hero worship Instead there was a sense of disgust at what the Irish gangster had turned into The actual stories of the mobsters was enough to push it up to a 3 stars but deep down I really feel like it only deserved 25 stars This definitely wasn't a uick read for me Every time English felt the need to throw in a big Ha This is why the Irish mobsters were better than the Italian mobsters I put the book down for at least a day I still find the Irish mob interesting so I may go looking for a book a little less biased If you want to read a romanticized tale of the early Irish mob then this book is for you If you just want to know what happened without the author trying to make you feel sympathetic toward them then find something else
