  Days Without End is a haunting archaeology of youth, when 'time was not something then we thought of as an item that possessed an ending.' To the fatalism and carnage of classic westerns, Barry introduces a narrator who speaks with an intoxicating blend of wit and wide-eyed awe, his unsettlingly lovely prose unspooling with an immigrant’s peculiar lilt and a proud boy’s humor.3/4(7). “Days Without End is suffused with joy and good spirit Through Barry, the frontiersman has a poet’s sense of language If you underlined every sentence in Days Without End that has a rustic beauty to it, you’d end up with a mighty stripy book.”—Sarah Begley, Time.

  Days without End, by Sebastian Barry I usually like it when an author experiments with style and content but because I love the seductive Irish lilt in the voice of Sebastian Barry’s characters, I was a little taken aback to find that his new novel is set in 19th century America and narrated by an Irish-American protagonist. Thomas McNulty, aged barely 17 and having fled the Great Famine in Ireland, signs up for the U.S. Army in the s. With his brother in arms, John Cole, Thomas goes on to fight in the Indian Wars against the Sioux and the Yurok and, ultimately, the Civil War. Orphans of terrible hardships themselves, the men find these days to be vivid and alive, despite the horrors they see and are.
